Serendipity

Inspiration comes from those small moments in life.  No blog captures this better than Onenezz .  This is a nod to you my friend for all those simple little joys in life you present regularly on your blog. You've taught me how to capture those macro shots over the past couple years....exposing the basic truths that capture the deeper meanings of our lives.  One day while drinking my coffee, I stared out my window and saw this little guy on my roses. A very serendipitous moment.
So in a "Onenezz-esque" nod, here's my attempt to capture this moment while giving you all a little insight behind how my blog operates:)
"Serendipity. Look for something, find something else, and realize that what you’ve found is more suited to your needs than what you thought you were looking for." Lawrence Block

  1. Haha, i love the tribute to One. That really is a lovely shot. I know how small that butterfly is, and you capture the details of the wings so vividly, my telefoto can't do justice to it, as you did now!

  3. Especially true for photography: when you look for something you are most of the time ending with something you were not expecting and usually for something very rewarding.
    A great symbiosis here between flower and insect. I like the "echo" between the wings' design and the petals' curls.

  4. Hi Chris, while drinking coffee, I stared at my notebook and saw 2 new comments on an old post. I investigated and arrived here. Thanks for the nice words and the link. It means a lot that you like my work. I haven't been reading my own old posts actually but found myself amused by the 'Fair' post. :)

    Beautiful capture of the butterfly sipping sweet nutritious nectar.
