I Was Looking....




I was looking for flowers and found a fly.




In search of more butterflies.....




I found bumblebees.




In hope of a colourful sunset




I stumbled on a flock of noisy corellas.







There's more to life than endless searching, let's rest in Whom and what we find along the way.

Sharing first photo at Shoot. Edit. Submit (chosen as a Top 5 Winner).

Schön was du alles entdeckt hast. :-)
Hier bei uns halten sich die Insekten leider weiterhin zurück, es ist noch immer zu kühl. Ich muss mich noch gedulden, was Makros mit Insekten betrifft. ;-)

Lieben Gruß. Bina

If we take the moment to look we can usually find beauty of some kind and you certainly have found some of the best. I love the "corella tree" and the dew drops! Exquisite! Have a beautiful weekend!

Such beautiful pictures, but I must admit the tree full of birds is my favorite; those birds are stunning.

I have no words for your first photo of the fly - well, I do but they're coming in all directions and I can't find one that's just right to explain how amazed, and proud of you (in a sincere way), that I am of what you've captured. Love love LOVE the photos of the corellas.

Mark said...

I know they are God's creation but those Corellas are driving me crazy!

Beautiful words. I love visiting your blog - you inspire me. Thank you.
The dewdrops are beautiful.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Simply breathtaking images! Isn't it amazing that oftentimes what we're in search of doesn't materialize, but if we keep our minds open and actively look for good anyway, we find something better?

Brenda @ It's A Beautiful Life said...

Oh my.... these are exquisite! How lovely that you've captured such beauty with your eye and camera... and then you share it with us.

Wishing you lots more of those glimpses of heaven........

Angie said...

I had to laugh out loud while reading your story. The fly is just hysterical! Love it. :)

Sometimes we go out in search of something we've in mind to shoot, only to find what is waiting to be shot. That's the best part of the photographic journey, though. Finding the unexpected just waiting for us to capture it in all its glory.

Lovely images. :)
