A Beautiful Flutterby

A real flutter by, in the literal sense of the word. I couldn’t resist a shot of this maple seed as it fluttered by my head and landed on a geranium leaf, as if that’s where the afternoon breeze intended to put it. Nature’s helicopters!

  1. Hi Nancy,

    I’m jealous your helicopters are rainbow colors. How pretty they are. Wonderful shot. Ours are only green and turn brown! :)

  2. Brings back memories of the days when I used to plat propeller games with the ones found laying on the ground.

  3. I find our helicopters are real nuisance. We just got the garden all cleaned up and they fell in one night making it look like we never sweep the floor. I feel like a bad housekeeper.

  4. Otherwise known as the bane of our garden. I swear we sweep the walkway and it’s covered again in 30 minutes. Do these ever stop falling?

  5. Nancy, you are such a talented photographer! Such a simple thing and yet what a beautiful picture. Nature’s helicopters fit it perfectly.

  6. nature’s helicopter indeed! I’ve called them that since I was a child — not that I’m not still a child a heart!
    Beautiful — thanks for this Nancy.

  7. I have never seen those colours on the ones we have here (millions of them … sigh !) wow ! Gorgeous shot !

  8. this is a a simple and great photo to show that nature is the ultimate designer! love the colour combinations and contrast! bea-u-tiful!
