This is my first contribution to this challenge. I haven’t had much loveliness in my life with the floods and rain over the past week. I have been able to get out into the garden and have found a bit of respite with my camera. Here is a bit of what I have found.
Some insects like a Dragonfly who seemed to follow me in the garden
A poor old Orchard Swallowtail Butterfly on a Pentas flower. She has seen better days. I used this angle so you couldn’t see how ratty her wings were at the rear
A Brown Ringlet Butterfly was resting on a leaf in the brief morning sun
The Wanderer Butterfly preferred the Bauhinia flowers
and not an insect but one of the smallest Honeyeater, a female Scarlet Honeyeater. This is the second mass flowering of the Bottlebrush tree bring so many birds into the garden.
Can you find your emotion among this lot? No responsibility taken for any mental scaring, they are your emotions. Perhaps I can facilitate some change. Try and stop for a while and appreciate the colours or patterns of the photo that builds a flight response or just stop on the photo that makes you go aahhh and soak up the emotion
