PATIENCE REWARD

Jessi's photograph in the Butterfly Pavilion at the Natural History Museum LA
I am not fond of my first post for today and often I would simply delete it.  However then I might hear that a fellow blogger was getting ready to comment and had come back looking for it.  So......I will leave it, but in the meantime I will deposit this much more beautiful post to ponder.  My goddaughter Jessi took this picture in the Butterfly Pavilion and I could not believe the patience she had.  I was pointing willy-nilly clicking away and getting some very lame photos while she was doing just as her mother would have done, waiting for perfection.

  3. This is perfection indeed. What a gorgeous butterfly. Have you noticed blogger not updating today? I see by your sidebar that it's yesterday's post. Peculiar.

  7. That is beautiful - thank you, and her. I am another willy-nilly clicker. And should learn from magic like this.

    If only I had one ounce of patience.

    If only butterflies could live a little bit longer. I think they said their life span is 2 weeks.

    I usually don't have trouble with blogger, but it looks like it is my turn now.

    It is a very difficult thing to catch a photo of a butterfly, even when you are shut inside a butterfly pavilion.

    Oh my, I would never call you a willy-nilly clicker. You take gorgeous photos.

    I could never have held the pose she had to hold in order to take the picture. They would have had ot call an ambulance to carry me off if I stayed in one place as long as Jessi did to get the picture.

    The beauty of the picture kind of takes away from the sadness about RW.
