Fragile Fundamental

Fragile Fundamental

I watched an excellent documentary a couple of nights ago, narrated by Meryl Streep, called Wings of Life (, about the ingenious ways flowers lure winged creatures (birds, bees, bats and butterflies) to spread their pollen.

The macro photography is astonishing (there are shots from inside the flowers … hats off  to cinematographer!) and this makes it an engaging visual feast… though after a 6 hour canyoning hike down the Catalina Mountains it was a bit of struggle to not drift off to the lullaby of Meryl’s dreamy voice which was a bit like taking a warm bath for the mind.

Anyway in tribute to flowers everywhere here’s a macro shot of a flower, from a meaningful bunch presented to me by my kids, after arriving from my 5 day solo drive across the USA a little over a month ago.

Since moving to Tucson I’ve done a lot of hiking and mountain biking and taken a stack of photos which I will be sharing soon! I promise. 🙂
