Tending the flowers

I love to see the beauty of flowers on a Summer’s day but when you add butterflies to the mix, it is hard to get anything better.  It is so interesting to watch them poking through the flowers in search of nectar and then leaving with a coating of pollen to carry on to the next flower.  Nature has such an amazing way of joining things together.  The flower provides for the insects and the insects make it possible for the flowers to reproduce.

The circle of life is pretty cool!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
