Today, I am thankful for another photography lesson.
Here is this season's key photography lesson: Do not inspect or tour the garden without the camera. Otherwise, I miss too many photo opportunities.
Today, I remember to heed my own advice.
With camera in hand, I catch a lovely Monarch butterfly feeding on lamb's ear blossoms. These photos make up for the one that got away - a delicate white butterfly sitting on a cluster of centranthus alba (white valerian) blossoms.
Note to self: always invite good luck, good timing and serendipity to join me in the garden.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
