2 - That's the underside of a painted turtle statue anchoring down to the ground. The different colors in the coral and then the sun coming through the water got me.
3 - Fan Leaves
4 - See that storm back in the horizon? I had to crop the picture to fit it in here, but the dark cloud above it formed a giant bell that looked as if it were just dumping its watery contents into the ocean. Beautiful.
5 - Tangled trees
6 - Precision and symmetry.
7 - I know, this one is weird... but the way the milk and oil bubbled up in this pancake batter made me smile and take a breath. You have to admit that those bubbles are beautiful.
8 - Amazing flight
9 - Light in the clouds
10 - Mother's Day Roses
11 - Crevice at the pier. And turquoise water.
12 - Sunlight in the water
13 - Happy Leaf
14 - My beautiful sister and her boyfriend. They have fun together, and seeing her happy and in love was a beautiful thing. (Uh. I suppose I don't actually know if she classifies herself as in love... but it looked that way to me, so... amiright or amiright, Michelle? *wink, wink*)
15 - Just this. I get to look at this every day and it's still amazing to me.
16 - Carson spotted these interesting flowers on a walk one day. There's no scale in the picture, but these things were tiny... about the size of a dime. I went back to get a better picture another day and they had all fallen to the ground. Happy to have this one.
17 - Fun, waxy leaves.
18 - Delicate and detailed glass in the temple windows.
19 - The color contrast in this leaf snagged me.
20 - A perfect tree.
21 - Kenz, Brian and I all got to go to the new Ft. Lauderdale temple for the dedication... it was incredible. In a word: beautiful.
22 - Soft pink, dark pink, white and black... this bird is probably the envy of all the other birds.
23 - Pelican dive - so graceful and perfect.
24 - On a boat out to snorkel. Look at the perfect-ness of that water!
25 - Everglades. It's the dry season, so the water level is almost nothing right now. I still find it beautiful (as long as I plug my nose against the swampy smell).
26 - Pebble rock art
27 - Giant rooty tree
28 - Miles's curls silhouetted against that amazing blue color... sigh.
29 - Tall grasses
30 - Delicate grasses swinging from the tree branches
31 - A pelican... So perfect.
