precisely this moment

 an early morning walk in the garden.
still. quiet. sparkling.
 the silence broken only by bird calls and the occasional rooster's crow.
the roosters have just learned to crow and they still seem surprised by it.
 dew-laden spiderwebs sparkling in the morning sun.
 and a clear sense of these precise moments as utterly unique.
 these fine webs have their glittering moment in the sun. 
 the light falling on them will never fall again in precisely the same way. 
fleeting, unique moments, savored fully.

it's what life is about, really.

Thanks for visiting :-) Sorry, I kind of dropped off the twig a little but came to see you and - wow - what amazingly, breathtakingly beautiful pictures. Nature does it all so perfectly.

You know, I had never thought about the fact that light will never hit webs (or anything living really) in the same way again. I might have to use that as motivation to take more photos when the light is making things look perfect...it might never do that again.
