Flight of the Fiery Skipper

While #1 Grandson played quietly without me I took advantage and tried to catch up on emails and news at my desktop computer which is near a window that looks out on the backyard. Suddenly in the corner of my eye there was fluttering, and streak of color!

A Fiery Skipper was drinking the nectar from the tiny Lantana peddles! My camera never too far out of reach was in my hands quick as you like, and me making a mad dash for the backyard! Using a strip of lattice work on my patio cover as a blind I quietly positioned myself and took several images of the skipper at its meal. Most were sharp as a tack and show the skipper very well, but today I like this one the most. The movement shows their flightiness, and speed of the Skipper; how quick and nibble they are!

The image has an Impressionistic feel that resonates with my soul just now.

Flight of the Firery Skipper

No doubt in time I’ll be sharing one or two of those sharp as tack images I made, but today let’s be nibble and quick and fly with the Fiery Skipper! 🙂

      1. Oh my gosh no need to apologize, Deborah! I’ve been MIA til yesterday, had unplanned knee trauma couple weeks ago and then surgery last week. Trying to get back to feeling like my old self….going to be a little while though. 😦

          1. Hey Deborah, now I have to apologize for late replying! LOL We went ‘home’ to the east coast for my surgery, we are now in South Carolina (where it’s a lot warmer) for my recovery which is going well (so they say). I had two meniscus tears. 😦 I can’t wait to have no pain and get back outside!

  1. I really love this style of artistic expression.
    Gentle to the soul. Inviting and welcoming. no hard sharp edges as barriers… soft and dreamy. Beautifully……. Created Deborah! love it 🙂
