August Break: Day Fifteen

Today's August Break is brought to you by my backyard.
I stepped outside this morning to see life (and death) all around me!
A spider protecting his home.
A late blooming chive.
A carpet of thyme.
An insect war brewing in front of me.
Brilliant purple blossoms with bright yellow stamen.
A grasshopper camouflaged.
I stood still amongst it all.
Letting it soak in.

insect wars
the fly lost this battle. nature amazes me. every single day.

doesn't it seem like this blossom is dancing?

One doesn't need to go any further than one's own backyard to find inspiration in life, death, joy, & sadness - all found in the little things.
