Provisions And Faith

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Far Horizons 91321” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The little skipper butterfly sits quietly on his purple flowers and looks out towards the realm of green laid before his eyes. From his perspective the world has no end. All that he sees is a universe with no borders nested in a small eternity. Because he knows the world was made for him he has confidence that when he launches himself into the air he’ll most likely encounter his provisions that were prepared for his life. His peace comes not from his foreknowledge but from his heart. He has no ancient history or maps made by his forefathers. He simply trusts that his maker has already put everything in place. As the breeze builds up he’s not carried by the wind. Instead he opens his wings and catches it. In spite of his tiny size he wrestles a force of nature into submission and seeks his fortune in faith that it’s already waiting to be found. May we learn such a simple truth our blessings are waiting to be discovered.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

The Brief Opportunity For Joy

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Skipper In The Mists 82821” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The late summer is a time of haze and mists for Appalachia. What ever rain falls is quickly recalled by the sun and soon rises up from the mountains giving everything an ethereal feel. The little butterflies and bees waste no time between showers and the Ironweed nectar is irresistibly sweet. They’re drawn in to it like gravity. As I approached the feast with my lens they are too compelled to feed to be concerned about the giant hovering a few inches from them. And a few even decided to test my bright red shirt just in case I too was one of the blooms. Late August and early September is often a wet season and the little ones know that the break from the rain is temporary.

We should consider that own opportunity for living is always limited. There are always seasons of joy and seasons of sorrow. If the little butterfly was afraid to risk being caught in the next downpour he’d stave to death in fear of clouds. But instead he boldly snatches every second of joy he can find. We too have times and seasons when opportunity seems limited by circumstances but I think that we can learn from nature and aggressively grasp every single moment of joy presented to us.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

The Race For Love

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Best Buds In Sunshine 81821” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The morning sun grows firce as it’s circle brings it in line with little slice of Appalachia. There’s no morning dew and that tells me that the rain is on its way soon. Between the prickly lettuce and the Japanese Knotweed the pollinators are having a party. The skipper butterflies are darting around everywhere and two of them seem to be playing tag with each other. Though very small they are extremely swift. If I’ve understood correctly their speed rivals that of a dragonfly. Correction.. the Dragonfly speed is officially just under 35 mph and the butterflies can reach 37 mph. So depending on individual skill levels it would be a race to behold. But these two are racing each other. I watched them zip around all the blooms and stop only to feed and refuel. They were like stockcars leaving the pits. They seemed to wait for each other before taking off again and eventually landing together on the leaf in front of me. Normally, skipper butterflies are very territorial and don’t tolerate sharing a perch unless… They’re mated! I began to understand that this race is a race to determine a worthy candidate for passing on genes. The smaller one must be the male as is common among insects and he also seems to be the one who is following the lead. If he can impress her with speed and ability he’ll win the prize and have a mate. He’ll get to be “best buds” forever.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

On This Speck

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Skipper Butterfly On Indian Hemp 80121” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

Each day wonderful things happen even if we don’t notice. One person might look at tonight’s photo and see a weed. Another might see a butterfly that’s so common that it fails to inspire. And yet tonight I ask you to look for the life. I ask you to feel the warmth of the sun and smell a fragrance in the breeze. I want you to stretch out your imagination and listen to the unseen songbirds in the surrounding landscape. Never believe that what is common to us isn’t special to universe. We in our limited ways to reach out beyond the limits of our ancestors and have searched the universe for another world where Almighty God has placed his breath. And from Galileo to now not one has such world has been known. In the broader aspect of the universe a little brown butterfly is something wonderful and so are you.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Sunshine And Friends

Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Sunshine And Friends 71721” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

A splash of lightning foretells a rumble of thunder as my big blue truck breaks through the downpour. The storms provide a welcome change from the jungle like heart and humidity of the Appalachian Summer. I’ve had a chance to leave my mountain and run a few errands in the Kanawha Valley so as always I bring my camera. After the storm passes I consider the golden dome of the capitol building with its magnificent oaks and historical statues but there is no inspiration for me there today. A quick side trip to the airport leaves me just as unmoved. Perhaps a few spots that I’m aware of on the river will have a good opportunity for me. And there along the public stream access I find the Loosestrife is in bloom. And it’s being visited by a flutter of little skipper butterflies. While they’re typically territorial today I observed that they were quite cordial and happy to share the pinkish purple flowers. Maybe it’s the fresh sunshine after a storm or perhaps like the name implies Loosestrife has some sort of calming effect on them.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
