As these Gulls "paint" the railing their own way...don't you wonder why one is headed in another direction? Perhaps he was going down the "road less traveled" or "following the different drum" in his thoughts. How much better off we all would be if we followed our own intuitive ways rather than the "herd thoughts" of the masses.
Even birds have bad hair days! This one's feathers, however, are supposed to be like that....and of course, she/he thinks her "hair" is beautiful just the way it is. We all have something to learn from this beautiful Egret...we, too, are beautiful just the way we are.
So often on our path in life, we come across things that take our breath away and bring tears to our eyes. The Passion Flower did just that when I saw it growing wild along the road in Tennessee. When I brought one if the flowers back in the car to look more closely at it, I wept...wept at its beauty.... and the work of art that is was. This one was taken while strolling through the garden area of Home Depot. You just never know when something is going to catch your eye and need to be captured.
Often times, if we don't walk slow enough in life, we miss the most beautiful....like this dragon fly resting on the warm iron work of a plant hanger. He stayed there for the longest time...as if waiting to have his picture taken. His wings are so beautiful....like intricate lace weaving.
