It was a wonderful morning for a walk. Like most morning Lexi and I were out and strolled over to Shunga Park to enjoy the fresh cool air, she can do her thing and I can look at nature. I was drawn to a few leaves of the cottonwood that have changed from greens to yellows in anticipation of the Autumn season. While capturing a few closeups of the yellow with my trusty point and shoot in macro mode a friendly wasp came an landed on the leaf I was admiring.

More and more it are the small unexpected experiences that allow me to maintain my closeness to nature.
