Friday Finds

Each day I try to get out for a few minutes to grab some fresh air and take a few pictures. As I walked across the front yard near my Bradford pear tree I spotted this cute little creature sunbathing on one of the leaves.

He looks like he has some great eyelashes!

 I wonder if the sunlight felt as good to him as it did to me.

I wonder if my grey hair is as pretty as his in the sunlight.

I wonder what he sees as he peeks over the leaf.
 I wonder if he found a warm cozy spot to sleep last night.
I'm so glad I found him,
so glad I could spend a few moments
observing an amazing part of nature.
The beauty of the natural world lies in the details.”

  1. That's one very hairy caterpillar, Cathy! What a character! How clever of him to choose a lovely red leaf for you to photograph him on! I just love that second image - what an amazing little face and I love the dark eyelashes, very flirtatious!
    Have a lovely weekend.

  2. He's beautiful and will probably transform into even greater beauty.

  3. Wonderful to get up close and personal with nature and I agree that beauty lies in the details. Love the long eyelashes and if my grey hair looks as great as his, I will no longer complain :)

  4. I love the front view, so cool Cathy and the words that you put with it so fun.

  5. I am sure the light catching your hair is just as beautiful. He was a great find!

  6. I don't really like creepy-crawlies! But you shot this one with such joy and abandon that I had to appreciate his natural beauty.

  7. I don't believe I've ever seen a little critter like that! Good eye!

  8. I'm glad you found him, too, Cathy! You took some wonderful shots of that amazing little creature. Love the bokeh in the last two photos.

  9. I am glad you shared him! Wonderful fun captures. Love that 2nd one.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!
