I walk nearly every day at lunch as a means to escape and recharge from the hectic whirlwind of the office. Luckily I can get to a nice trail easily, but it’s still in the middle of Bellevue, Washington with interstate 90 overhead. And even so, nature thrives.
When I am in nature (even during my lunch walks) I try to be very observant of what is going on around me and yesterday was no exception. From the corner of my eye, I saw a small reddish-orange dot on a green leaf and instantly new it was a lady bug. I’ve seen many in my life, yet I still took the time to stop and “pay attention” to it. Much to my surprise, it ended up being what could possibly be a once in a lifetime sight. So, I pulled out my cell phone and captured the moment to share. Seriously…how many times in life is something like this captured??? It makes me smile every single time I look at it.
