Light and Gentle

The Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘Weight(less)’ this week. Some things in nature are so delicate and small they seem weightless. Of course they must have some kind of mass but when you see an insect climbing over delicate grasses without much bending, it can’t weigh much.


This Harebell is a delicate flower, light enough to be blown about in the breeze and cause difficulty for photographers!


You might remember these droplets hanging delicately on grasses. Defying gravity almost as they hang impossibly roundly on the grass seeds.


This photo is one of my favourites and it has a feeling of lightness and freedom that makes me happy 🙂


This baby frog can’t have much weight to it, the tiny lily pad barely sinks at all under its weight. But then it’s not much bigger than the water droplets so that might be why!


This butterfly caught my eye, resting on these spring flowers. So light and fluttery in the sunshine. Bring on those days again soon!


And finally another droplet shot on a very damp morning when I was lucky enough to spot a dandelion seed head covered in gravity-defying droplets.


Hope your new year is going well so far. I’m exhausted after being back at work for a week, not sleeping well and my back is complaining vigorously about increased activity. But I am counting my blessings and being thankful for another year with all its opportunities and promise.
