The Journey

I was sitting at my computer monitor one afternoon and noticed the reflection of sunshine and falling leaves through the window behind me. What caught my attention when I turned around was tiny glimmers of blue floating among the leaves. I grabbed my camera and headed outside. Those glimmers were hundreds of miniscule flies. My neighbors must have thought I was an absolute loon as I darted around trying to catch one of them! I spent the next hour watching this little guy as he gingerly explored my yellow sweater, flexed and re-flexed his beautiful wings, and then finally took flight. Moments such as these bring out the kid in me.
