Thistledown Fairies






“Tink was not all bad:  or rather, she was all bad just now, but, on the other hand, sometimes she was all good.  Fairies have to be one thing or the other because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. ” — J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

  2. Wow. Another one of your beautiful botanicals. These are so evocative … for me at least. Keep ’em coming. Also … you didn’t do this with your iPhone … did you … ’cause if you did, I’m gonna toss my Nikon 105 mm macro lens! D

    • Thank you, Dave. No, not the phone. 🙂 I took this with the macro lens I use with my Panasonic G5.

  8. Ah, they are so beautiful, Lemony! I like how fairies can be only one thing or the other. 🙂

    • I love Thistledown. Yes, fairies have all-consuming states of being. How wonderful it must be, when those states are positive and bright, and how awful, when they are… not. 🙂
