Warming Up

Warming up in the early morning sun allowed me to capture this black winged dragon fly. They’re beauties but always on the move. Sunshine caffeinates their morning. Enjoy Macro Monday. Thanks for looking in.

From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, the name of the Lord shall be praised. Ps. 113:3

Muse – Milkweed Transformation

Milkweed Flower Summer stage of the transformation cycle

Summer stage of the transformation cycle

One of my first subjects for this photo blog in the dreary month of March was Milkweed pods. They stood during the harsh winter and were unfurling their seeds to begin the cycle of transformation anew. With the flowers in bloom now, the cycle continues and I muse upon the transformation cycle of the Monarch Butterfly that goes along with it growing cycle. Wildflowers are a frequent theme of mine so these milkweed flowers fit this muse of the week.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2

Flower Friday

Since flowers seem to be at the focal point of my wanderings I’d like to contribute to the Flower Friday Tag.

Most of my shots are from wandering hikes, but these Black-Eyed Susan’s from my wife’s flowers made for capture worthey of a summer day. Are they the official flower of summer? Certainly the icon of summer floral beauty.

Enjoy, Thanks for stopping by.
