And then I got distracted . . .

Stunning Red Finch  
Some days I am blessed to find beauty hiding in the shadows right off my balcony. Other days I choose to search it out, which usually includes a drive out to the country.

Today was no exception. My plan was to focus on the beauty of the cacti in bloom up in the Hill Country.


Cactus Blooming in the Hill Country  
And I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The colors were so incredibly vivid that it seemed as if every bloom had been painted by hand.

And then I got distracted . . .


Oh goodness, what a beautiful distraction. This little guy was a bit camera shy, but the moment was absolutely priceless. Do you notice his mama back there making sure he is staying out of trouble? 🙂


The cacti are blooming and the bees are pollinating . . .  
Now back to my cactus blooming! A bee decided to join in on the fun and do a little pollinating . I didn’t want to get too much closer.

And then I got distracted . . .


The kid is weird!  
“Yeah, I am a weirdo! And, your point is?”

Messy Pollinator  
Now back to my bloom dang it! Wow! He is a bit of a messy pollinator isn’t he? At least I have found the source of Haley’s sneezing all afternoon! Pollen is everywhere you look!

And then I got distracted . . .


Ruh roh . . . I think she is about to get soaked!  
Ruh roh . . .  I think the kid is about to get soaked!

And, yup I am still distracted . . .


Ooops! It's a bit slippery!
Ooops! The rocks get a bit slippery when they are wet!

Hmmmm . . .

Maybe sometimes distractions aren’t such a bad thing!
