Presenting the Calypso Orchid


wandering through the forest
cloaked in shades of green
a glimpse of violet and gold
the tiny fairy slipper


it is always a joy to see them
like magic sprinkled here and there


these are all the same orchids
photographed in morning sun, sunset, wind blew them apart,
wind blew them together:


kissing 
heart shaped
orchids
~
i hope you enjoyed 
the lovely calypso orchid

Intimate and Vast Montana


an intimate view
teeny tiny little kinnikinnick flowers
like fairy lanterns scattered amongst the forest floor


a vast Montana view


wild apple blossoms grace our trees


at their crowns
trees grow


some nights still freeze
bird bath water

Perfect Life




i found this budding beauty
rising from a mound of moss
at the base of an abundant waterfall

i see tender attention
loving protection
reminiscent  of two lovers, caring friends
or mother and child

i have no idea what plant it is
i see new life
and 
beauty

Happy Mother's Day

Feathers Flowers & Fur


I sat near this nest for a while
watching the female await his (Osprey) return


landing had to be just right


just a fly by


busy little squirrel
has been digging up last autumns stores of small pine cones 
and eating non-stop


I had the great pleasure of Canada Geese and goslings
visit my ponds! 

lovely and tiny spring beauty
also known as fairy spuds, but it would be a shame to dig them up for the tiny fairy sized spud

~
Spring is truly coming to life!
