Gathering Sweetness

A busy beetle diligently gathering sweetness from a goatsbeard flower.  Insects and flowers, partnering together.

      Hi Cee. 🙂 Thanks for your kind words. Beauty made by God.

    That’s an important partnership. Good one.

    • Irene Tron June 28, 2016

      Thanks for stopping by. Can’t wait to see the resulting butterflies. 🙂

  5. The beautiful yellow brings forth sunshine and makes me smile. Great photo. 🙂

    I also notice that you’re a “dot net”–maybe that has something to do with it??

    • Irene Tron June 27, 2016

      Possibly. Oh, technology!

    I guess we all wish we could do other art besides what we’re gifted in 🙂 I don’t know what the comment issue is…from the reader I can go to your place and comment fine, but I can’t respond to your reply which shows on my dashboard in the “notifications” list. So I’ll copy and paste when I have time…if you don’t hear from me (in response), please don’t take it personally, but chalk it up to the tech-weirdness 🙂 (Copied and pasted this–any chance you might query WP Support about it?)

    • Irene Tron June 27, 2016

      No worries. I will check with WP support. 🙂

    He is truly amazing–and I love it when gifted folks like you take a photo for us to enjoy…otherwise I’d miss a lot of His beautiful simplicity, I suspect 🙂 I’m not terribly observant…my mind is always busy thinking thoughts/poems 🙂

    I don’t know why my “comments fail” when I try to reply from my blog…I copied and pasted this one…

    • Irene Tron June 27, 2016

      Your comment made me smile. I have often wished I was better able to put my thoughts into words. So sorry you are having issues with commenting on my blog. Wish I knew if it was something on my end.

  9. Shadeau June 27, 2016

    WOW, the colors in the beetle are so vivid!

    • Irene Tron June 27, 2016

      Hi Shadeau. Just like God to make such beauty in simplicity. Thanks for taking the time to comment. 🙂
