With gratitude for beauty and mystery

November 25, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It's Thanksgiving week.  What am I grateful for?  For my good health, my family and friends.  I'm grateful for the endless bounty of nature's beauty and mystery.  I am thankful for my good fortune every time I discover and photograph yet another incredible insect.  Some insects stand out as strikingly beautiful; many are fantastic in shape and appearance; still others are as mysterious in gesture and movement as they are in form.  As I look over my pictures from this season, I find it overwhelming to behold so much beauty and wonder all at once.  And being thankful starts all over again.
