...Which things the angels desire to look into. I Peter 1: 12

The Columbines grow
On delicate stem
It pays to kneel below
To shoot neath' them,
Where it's a good angle.

There sits a tiny angel...
Holding a butterfly
Framed in the flowers,
That stand up high
After rain showers...
Poetry by me AJP© 2013

We have had lots of wind and rain most of the day which made it difficult to capture
these flowers but had to wait until the wind took a break from blowing and the rain
died down to a gentle sprinkle.

Thank you very much for the courtesy of the spotlight, Michelle Wambaugh!!!

    I love the colors of your columbine! Mine are purple and white. Your frame really keeps the eye in the photo.

    Thanks for the kind words...It still remains cold here for June but am happy that the Columbine as fragile as it looks is a tough plant to withstand our cold climate this year.

    Thank you all...Leslie, Speaking of hummingbirds...I happened to look up after shooting a picture of the Columbines and one of these speedy birds flew close to me, but by the time I got myself in gear it flew away ....I would have loved to have captured just one good picture of it by the flowers....Next time hopefully I will be ready:)

    Love the colors in the Columbines and your POV really captured the best angle of the flowers. The rains always enhance the colors in nature and the garden angel adds so much to this photo!
