Delicate and beautiful

I was chasing a viceroy butterfly, which I failed to get close enough to capture when I noticed this grass seed waving in the gentle breeze. I wonder if anyone else will think it has beauty. If you don't, it is probably because I failed to capture it as I saw it.

As for the butterfly, it would not hold still till it landed up on tree trunk about 12 ft from the ground. I did not get a decent capture of it.

I spent the day with Lorelei and her mom...she changes so much when we don't see her for a few days. She smiles so big when I go in. It is funny, she will go from me to Sarah and look back at me and smile so big, as if to say 'Look who's got me now!'...or if she comes to me from Sarah she will look back at Sarah the same way.

I love grasses and how they look so fuzzy or so delicate. I've been trying to get a photo that makes me see what I see in life and it hasn't worked, but I think you've done just fine.

You captured the grass frond perfectly. It has such a delicate beauty. I love it. MB

And I have to chuckle about Lorelei! hehehe

I like your grass seed for its delicacy. Nice placement of it coming up from the corner of the frame.

I think it's beaultiful, too. Reminds me of the patterns of some fireworks!

I happen to think this photo is beautiful and that you did a good job of capturing the grass. I also think Lorelei has both the mother and her grandmother wrapped around her little finger!

I think it's very pretty. I wish those darn butterflies would be still!

Hi Rose, I love your photo today.... I never would have looked at a piece of grass as beautiful before. It's all in the photo I think... It just glistens. Wonderful!!!!

Glad you got to see your Precious one.
Hugs,
Betsy

I think grasses are very beautiful. This one is particularly fragile looking. Nice shot, Rose!

You did a very good job here. I like wispy things.

I love the grasses, but never get very good photos of them when I try. I took one of some reddish grass this week, but didn't post it. So delicate and feathery...lovely!
