“You have no minute to spare… All you have is to dare”
In early June my husband will be celebrating a landmark birthday and I have been hard at work getting ready for it with some time-constraining activities (which shall remain unmentioned since he is a follower of my blog!). Hence my lack of a post last week and a short one this week.
“There’s time enough, but none to spare.”
Charles W. Chesnutt
When I got word this week, however, that there would be another trip to the bird rookery I posted about here last year, I had to make time to participate. So, I was up at 5:30 and off to shoot the baby birds at a friend’s private farm. (Those who know me know mornings are NOT my favorite time but ya gotta do what ya gotta do!)
“Gather the flowers but spare the buds.”
The farm did not disappoint. There were even more birds than the previous year and I cannot wait to share them in future posts. However, for something a bit different I thought I’d take a simpler, time-saving approach this week and include some of the dragonfly (or damselfly-hard to be sure) captures that I made at the end of the visit. We spotted them by chance as we were leaving the rookery. Their little faces reminded me of puppies with their big eyes – they are well known for their incredible eyesight and amazing speed.
Enjoy the week, and if you have a few moments to spare, have a look at some of the other entries on the topic.
