Love the word profusion and this is a beautiful piece. Wild divinity indeed 🙂

Thank you for cheering my day 🙂
Profound – you’ve just nailed this one. The bee/butterfly link is sublime.
Thanks, Mike ! I liked the idea of excluding humans from the whole process even though the meadow, a couple of acres, was clearly planted. I have so many photos of it I couldn’t choose. I’ve not seen anything so spectacular for a long time:-)
I couldn’t get enough of this matchless photo at its normal size, so I enlarged it to its maximum and spent a delightful half hour seeing things up close and personal as the bees and butterflies do! Scrolling up and down and left and right heightened my sense of Nature’s “profusion” and the “divinity” in even the smallest hair-like growth on the stems of the flowers. Perfect in every way, Rachael!
Thanks, Ron! I bought my first ever SLR camera a few weeks ago, so any decent shots are accidents! Enlarging the photo is a brilliant idea – you can really imagine what it could be like to be a bee or a butterfly. Very clever of you 🙂
Divinity indeed! I love the benevolence you bestow on the queen bee, creating not just for the butterflies, but for all of us. And what a gorgeous photo, Rachael.
Thank you! It took a while to come up with something that wasn’t too fanciful, yet still had some meaning in an oblique kind of way. So glad you liked it, Miranda. Big hugs my friend 🙂
Ah, how magical. Thank you for this, my friend. xxo
It’s my pleasure to share it, Chloe. I went back to the meadow again – it was raining really hard – and the magic is still there!
