orange




"She tapped her finger & nothing happened & she thought she had lost her magic, but it had only changed & it took her awhile to figure it out."

I started out for a long afternoon walk - just me and my camera.
I was looking for orange...
I sat in the grass observing all the colorful leaves, sat along the side of the road while I picked some wildflowers that had gone to seed, walked in an open peanut field, walked through the woods, I even found myself stretched out in the neighbor's yard spying the last orange blooms I could find, and trying to decide which I would use for this week's challenge when this little orange beauty came fluttering by. Bright orange, unafraid, fluttering, drinking, posing.....I knew this magical girl was just what I was looking for.
