THROUGH MY LENS - Malawi

I am home for visiting my family in Malawi.  Every morning my daughter and I would go for a walk at 5.30 am for half an hour as Daniel had to be taken to a bus stop around 6.00 am for school.  These are a few photographs I took on my first mooring and I lovely all the Jacaranda Tree that were blooming and leaving purple carpets beneath their boughs.  I am linking with Through My Lens.





We often walked to Annika’s school grounds and she is still in the junior school however the school are building a High school and these are some of the classroom.  Along one path there were always a lot of butterflies but they were very busy first thing in the morning and difficult to photograph.

SUNDAY THOUGHT

What is more, I continue to consider all these things to be a loss for the sake of what is far more valuable, knowing the Messiah Jesus, my Lord. It is because of him that I have experienced the loss of all those things. Indeed, I consider them rubbish in order to gain the Messiah.

FRIDAY'S HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

I am linking with Fridays’ Hunt and Weekend Reflections and today the letter is Q, orange and animal.  We will start with this beautiful ORANGE butterfly from Costa Rica and then the ANIMAL I am showing you is very special as anyone who goes to Costa Rica will know and want to see it.  I had the privilege of seeing it on two occasions during my trip to Costa Rica.
It is the Resplendent QUETZAL and although it was difficult to photograph, I managed a short video of it.  Look out for its very long tail.



If the video does not appear below, CLICK HERE.




This is my REFLECTION image taken in Costa Rica.
