in the coolest shade
breathes the warmth of our faith
a blue damsel

On our walk at Lochan Mor we saw our first damselfly of the year. She was a real beauty and we enjoyed watching her fly by. It is always a fine balance, having a camera and the desire to be non-intrusive with the wildlife that we see. I was happy to let a photographic opportunity slip by and be fully present in the moment. When I looked up, the blue colours from the sky reflected in the loch on the far side were the exact colours of the damselfly. I have posted photographs of this loch before with the water lilies in bloom and in Winter when it was frozen. As of today I have found a new favourite.
We wish you all a very happy Monday and a wonderful new week!
With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
