Once again I am taking you back to the English Gardens.This place is almost 2 hours away from where I live,but the drive is so worth it.
Every time I visit this garden I am pleased with what I see.
On August 14,I took my cameras and headed off to Winnipeg and the English Gardens.
It was my lucky day,as you will see in a moment.
As I walked around,I saw this female Mallard,posing for me among the water lilies.
Of course the floral displays are wonderful and I keep on shooting,to capture their beauty.
This time my eyes were drawn to the pinks and purples,but one can see every colour of the rainbow on display.
I had gone,hoping to capture some Hummingbirds,which didn't
happen,but I found this little fella.
A Clearwing Moth.I had not seen one of these in over 20 years,so this was a thrill.
I was thrilled and captured many images.
This is such a unique creature,and he gave me great photo opportunities.
I left the gardens without the desired Hummingbird pictures,but didn't even miss them.I got the Clearwing Moth instead and that was perfect in my mind.
The Hummingbirds will be there another time.
Sometimes we think we know,what it is we are looking for,but instead God gives us something different,which gives a much greater joy than what we had wanted.
I know that seeing this Moth does not compare with the details of life,but I see a lesson in my experience on that day.
Let God decide what is best for me on any given day and I will end up being content and rejoicing.
