We have a new and fresh coating of snow now, after 50 degree temps on the weekend melted all the dirty stuff left behind from the last snowfall. As we drift once again into the colorless days (here in Buffalo, most winter days have a white cloud covered sky with white snow on the ground and very little bright sunlight to illuminate the different shades of browns and yellows and reds that are there - we just can't see them in the grayness) I was looking for some color to share this morning. This one should wake all of our eyes up!
In August 2009 I did a series of photos on the (link -->)"Birth of a Butterfly" at Composition-Life after a friend of mine had given me some butterfly eggs. My sons and I enjoyed the process and I had a great time 'trying' to photograph the birth. I linked to the archive of the August 09 posts- so if you visit, start at the bottom of the page.
I also created some Mosaics of the egg, to caterpillar, to butterfly that I posted on my Collage Page - (CLICK HERE) although I have seen many photo's so much better of the process - it was thrilling to be there and watch it all happen.
What a blessing it is to know - when we leave our earthly 'limited' human form, God has blessings in store for us, that are beyond our wildest imaginations. And our new lives, will not last for just a few days or years - as the butterfly, but we will live for eternity - worshiping the King of Kings!
