A Magical Dragonfly in the Fireworks? A Magical Dragonfly in the Fireworks?
Maureen Spagnolo took this other worldly shot at the 4th of July fireworks display at the Lincoln Memorial, in Washington, DC. We think it looks like dragonflies or angels or mythical beings. Stunning!
I Hummed a Bee Sonnet While Floating Through the Currant Forest I Hummed a Bee Sonnet
While Floating Through the Currant Forest
This wonderful shot of a bee was taken by Leslie Stager. She is a freelance nature photographer/videographer,a silk painter, and a Perinatal Massage Instructor and Author.

She said about taking this photo: "One day I flew on the back of a bee into the currant bush to learn what the bee sees. I buried my nose in flower stamens and rubbed pollen over my legs. I hummed a bee sonnet while floating through the currant forest. I've never been the same since."

Snow Flowers Bloom Snow Flowers Bloom
Polished and polished
clean, in the holy mirror
snow flowers bloom

These exquisite blossoms were caught in winter repose at the Bishop's Garden in Washington DC, by our Photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo.

Sunrise on the Hills Sunrise on the Hills
This beautiful shot by Maureen Spagnolo brings to mind these linesfrom the poem "Sunrise on the Hills", by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

"I stood upon the hills, when heaven's wide arch
Was glorious with the sun's returning march,
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales."

This wonderful image painted by British artist, John Atkinson Grimshaw, (September 6, 1836 - October 13, 1893) depicts the emotional shift in the season and gives homage to the fairy kingdom that we wish to honor and thank as well. (Image in public domain)
Goodbye to Summer, Welcome Autumn! Goodbye to Summer, Welcome Autumn!
This shot taken by Caleb Austin (of Bruington, Virginia,) typifies the free feeling of a summer day. We thought it nicely illustrates the final plunge of summer, before we welcome in the fall weather. Ranin Brown is jumping into the Saco River in Buxton Maine. Geronimo!
Leaves of Grass Singing 'Neath the Clouds! Leaves of Grass Singing 'Neath the Clouds!
It's as if photographer, Caleb Austin, of Bruington, VA., waited all night to catch a second picture of green hands praising summer!
Leaves of Grass, or is it Wheat? Leaves of Grass, or is it Wheat?
Here's a lovely photograph taken by photojournalist, Caleb Austin, from Bruington, Virginia. It looks like the hands of green people giving praise to the glory of a starry night!
Tranquil View of the Bishop's Garden Tranquil View of the Bishop's Garden
Photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo, has captured a series of restful images (coming here soon!) of the Bishop's Garden at the National Cathedral in Washington, DC. It might be worth becoming a bishop if the job comes with a garden like this!
