Hidden Beauty

As every thing in Life sometimes we do not see things at all on the first glance. We look over them and they are right in front of our face.

It can just take a small turn and it catches our eyes and then we start to look. To realize the beauty is hidden and sometimes we have to wait and to see the real beauty. It is in nature as in humans. Sometimes we do not see the real beauty on the outside it is the inside that really counts.


There it is the Beauty...It was hidden and it made me stop and wait and get to him before he showed the real beauty that was hidden inside.
So do not be so quick to look away and think there is nothing there. Get to know them before you are so quick to judge the outside. You could miss a really beautiful blessing.
Have a good weekend and always keep watching...
May you always dream in color.

Dear Katelan,

It seems more and more butterflies are disappearing, even the white cabbage species. So when a butterfly graces our garden I am delighted, beaming like a proud new father.

Thank you for sharing your moments with us,

DJ said...

Yes, and the hidden beauty is usually more impressive than the visual beauty...if we can just be patient with each other...

Momo Luna said...

There's tenderness in these pictures i think. I love the photographs but especially the first one, so little but so brave and full of trust.

Gloria said...

Bren said...

Beautifully written and wonderful insight. The pictures are perfect, the second one in particular grabs me but maybe that's because I can just see it as a focal element in a collage :-)

Mary said...

Hello Katelen,

I have no access to my blog during the daytime as I am at work and don't want to to surf on company time. Anyway, I can't comment on your blog through my phone. Sometimes I try to visit a blog or two. I have been busy with work so I try to do my blogging during the weekends when i am not on call. Anyway, I have ben missing you and other blogger friends. I hope to get back into the groove of things soon.

These butterfly shots are amazing. It looks like the same butterfly. Are you it's personal paparazzi? Hahaha! take care Katelen. I'll try not to miss you for long stretches. I promise. Tsup!

We all have to learn to be patient and see what is inside. Great post.

Deborah said...

Oh so beautiful. I could spend just about the entire day outside in the garden, taking pictures of every little thing. Me thinks I should expand my view and venture out to the horizon. **happy smiles** Deb

Calli said...
