Oh how the rain has fallen in the desert. We had almost an inch and a half today and the temp is in the fifties. There is enough of a chill in the morning to force me into my winter robe. Not that I am complaining.

With the moisture has come all kinds of different makings of God’s divine design. I had photographed this toadstool from when it first broke ground. I did it wet, I did it dry. I prayed for a little toad to come sit under or on it, but that never happened. I was walking away in my soaked clothes from laying flat on my belly when I heard a whisper tell me that the real beauty is underneath. So I gently lifted it from the ground and took it in my little studio for a look. Sure enough, the underside was of a grand design and conception with a hint of orange to it.

I laid it directly over a small portable flash to shine through the cap and just had a field day of capturing the symmetry, design and color. What a great 65th birthday gift from the Maker.

If it doesn’t look good from above, look underneath! ††† en theos ††† jimwork

More bugs from the yucca.

This one yucca in the field near our house has provided me with a wealth of life. Bugs, bees, flies and this creature. We used to call them blister bugs or stink bugs, have no clue as to what it really is other than being the best dressed bug I have seen in a while.
