Look closely and see what is often overlooked…
Three simple eyes that guide a bee to its nest
Feet with suction cups that allow security when holding tightly to a leaf
A discarded skin that nourishes the body
A covering that allows flight
Hundreds of individual petals that make up a whole
Sweeping vistas may be astounding but let us never ignore the beauty in the often overlooked
A two-day heat wave with temperatures above 90 degrees gave way to a balmy weekend with cooler nights and 80 degree days.
Creatures who had taken a mid-day siesta were now out and about enjoying the afternoon.
Some were sunning
Some were eating
and some appeared to be lost in thought.
Even after dusk sun-baked bricks kept night feeding creatures warm as they hunted their prey.
