I love Friday finds with Kim Klassen ... "it is a place to gather and share ... a place to cherish life's simple pleasures" ... doesn't that sound like such an inviting place?
"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."
Today i set out in search of butterflies. All the bright summertime flowers are in bloom and the day was perfect. I grabbed my 70-200 f2.8 lens with the 2X extender and off i went. These were gifts from my husband this year ... he "gets" me :~)
But no butterflies ... the harder i looked the more i got discouraged. An hour went by, and all i had were shots of flowers. And as pretty as they were ... they just were not butterflies. Finally i gave up and sat down to rest.
They danced their way from flower to flower while i happily clicked away. I brought home over one hundred photos of these beauties.
I have found that photography has taught me to slow down and be patient ... be still ... and that perfect photo just might appear.
If you have a few moments, be sure to click on Kim's adorable button that will lead you to more delightful finds.
until next time ...
