yesterday's gift


There is nothing that warms this photowalker's heart more than coming across a ladybug. You can only imagine my excitement when I came across a bajillion of them!! Really...a bajillion for sure!

Last night was lovely and warm, and we found a patch of wild flowers and grasses that were loaded with these little ladies.

We almost didn't make it home as I had to stop every two steps to snap. So much better than TV.


Mr. NK at my side, evening light, and ladybugs...

...Priceless.


Each day provides its own gifts.

Wow. Those photos are gorgeous. I had one of my preschool students today - normally a grouchy, sour little guy - come up to me with a little ladybug on his hand. He was so gentle with it and said, "I found a little friend."

Darling.
