Angel In a Flower

I took a shortcut and mistakenly hiked into a new place. 


Though new, the squirrels still failed my camera as usual. Monkeys were heard jumping from one branch to another in the dense wood. Rocks and trees along the my way looked more like my old friends than strangers.

And I knew this trail would somewhere merged with the main trail.


I knew, because a flower angel was waving lanterns in front of me.


She must have come in a hurry. 

She looked rather disheveled.

Shortcuts often lead us into new places and new adventures. Often no way shorter, but perhaps so much more interesting.
I like your three pictures, the third picture with the dandelion-like flower with their seed heads are magnificent. have a good weekend / brita

I would take an angel no matter how disheveled ;>)...she's still a beauty (and I'm glad you found the right path!)

Greal angles of shot !

RNSANE said...

Well, of course, she didn't want you to wander around in the jungle & miss your dinner! Lucky man!

Deb Crecelius said...

Maybe flower angels always appear that way...
so we will leave them there, at home.
Instead of taking them with us.

de engineur said...

divert, but just stay connected and dont go too far away. Make it gradual.

Nancy Claeys said...

The monkeys were chasing her. :)

Emm in London said...

Lovely photos! I think that even though I live in a city and you are so close to nature, we face the same decisions. I often choose a new path or route to work so that I can spot something new.
