Gift from a steel blue sky


As it is so often, I wander in search of something I cannot find.
A desire for here and now.

In its own time, it comes to me.
And waits for me to find it.

A beautiful little gift.

Nina--I love the first photo with the sweep of sky.
Widow skimmer? What an unusual name. Sometimes I wonder why the insects that humans have named receive the names they do.

Nice picture I love looking at blogs from other countries . You get a window into the wildlife from across the world. It's so diverse, I love it. I posted shots of insects that live on the Canal here in the UK check them out and let me know what you think. All welcome.

Yes, both eyes are open. No I don't see the X. I do see some beautiful pictures.

I see it. discreet, beautiful. good catch. I saw X in a lot of things too.

Mam said...

Nice catch. X is such an inorganic kind of shape, but you found one in nature after all.

This was the most difficult letter for me--I even browsed the dictionary for ideas, to no avail.
I actually walked out and waited to find one, as I wrote--and it gently landed beside me.
The perfect "x" in his wings.

It's Wednesday....
You've made a play.
"X" marks the spot,
And I like yours a lot,
It's really fine....
Come visit mine,
