A section of the city skyline is silhouetted against the setting sun.
“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.” - Georgia O’Keeffe
I want to add a little gentleness to the end of this challenging and exhausting work week, and I thank God for giving us moments of beauty in Nature.
“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” ~Nathaniel Hawthorne
Since I haven’t taken a picture lately, I thought I’d dig into my files and bring out one that I’d taken with my 70-300 mm lens. I believe this was my first experience with the lens and with a tripod. I clunked through the Desert Botanical Gardens, knocking into various flora and irritating the birders. However, with the help of a keen-eyed, and patient, birder, I saw and managed to get this image of the sweet little momma and her chick.
