… funny how little things can trigger memories from days gone by … days that were rich in love and beauty and are firmly in the past never to return, but then there is the present beauty captured today and which fleshed out the beauty and richness of today. Such was the experience down at the ponds this afternoon; not much flying except for insects, the ducks were laying low taking in the warm sun before the coolness of winter arrives. On the far pond there were hundreds of butterflies feeding on a flowering plant of some sort and I spent about fifteen minutes trying to get shots I was happy with and I did get about ten shots out of 60+ I really liked. Shooting with the 5Ds R so didn’t have the speed in continuous shooting, but it was fun. After a while some fond memories washed over me and I reflected on the moment and other moments … life is good and a gift of today to be treasured and remembered.
