Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Below are a simple collection of little items which have caught my eye over the past month or so. Come take a peek at these wee things with me.
These blossoms are small but it was this busy honey bee which challenged me to snap a shot. It never held still for very long so I have something like 24 images of an amber blur and only a couple like this one.
A walnut half. What else is there to say about that?
Frank has officially named this little guy Patio Bob. If it wasn't already obvious, he lives under one of his patio stones, or at least that's one of the places he stashes the cheeks-full of seeds he collects from the various feeding stations. You'll be seeing more of Patio Bob as summer progresses.
This little car is just about the right size for Patio Bob to scoot around the back yard. But it belongs to my neighbour's son.
Tiny irises in Frank's front yard. Each blossom is about 5 cm (2 inches) long.
These tiny fish, so plentiful in my local pond are part of the reason we have so many water-loving birds such as herons, terns and kingfishers.
A peony, about to bloom in Frank's back yard, plays host to a wandering ant.
This fence overlooks the dam at the pond. Smack dab in the middle of the link, is a confused dandelion seed. It won't find a fertile place to grow on this rusted bar.
This adorable baby robin sits patiently amid the forget-me-nots, hoping that his mother will remember to return to him with a worm.
Early one morning, I took a walk along the creek near Frank's place. The sun was shining at such an angle that colours appeared particularly saturated and brilliant. What I first thought were tiny lights from a distance, turned out to be these vibrant maple keys. The bonus surprise came after the image was uploaded when I saw the little visitor exploring the bottom key.
Thanks always for taking the time to help me enjoy some of life's little things.
