Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

So many ways to interpret this week‘s theme. Any time you have perfect light on your subject, the light is fleeting, kids, animals, birds – all fleeting. This week, I went with bees and butterflies, which you could argue are more flitting than fleeting. Since neither held still very well, and both were far more interested in flying than landing, I’m sticking with fleeting.

May Flowers

I’d say the April showers did what was expected of them, because the flowers this May have been breathtaking. Here are a few shots from last weekend:
