“Thirst for Nectar”

“Thirst for Nectar”

“Mindfulness is not chasing the moment but sipping the nectar of the moment.”
― Amit Ray

I noticed an interesting trend in my last few images, colours seem to have progressed from whites to pinks. It’s pretty obvious when I review my media library. The colour shift through the seasons has captured my attention over the past few years. I’d say I’m becoming a lot more observant as I spend time really paying attention to my surroundings, that includes these colour patterns.

Despite my aversion to bees, and other stinging insects, I keep finding myself going back to the rhododendron, enjoying all the activity. Besides, the bees are far too busy gathering nectar to pay any attention to me.

If you look carefully, you will find a black ant in the shadows also participating in the feast. Though not shown in this image, some small snails were also enjoying the nectar as well.

    You’re right on track for noticing the colors change. I’ve not researched the reasons for this, however guess it has to do with attracting pollinators… ha ha, is there any other reason? 😉😉
    Regarding stinging things, stay calm, they can smell fear 😉
