beautifully balanced


“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as bird’s wings.”

~ Rumi

  1. Fantastic detail of the duck’s feathers. The quote strikes quite close to home for me, too.

  2. That’s a great balancing act – and he looks proud of it too! Or maybe he’s proud of those feathers. There’s so much detail in this that they almost look painted on. Really beautiful.

  3. I have always tried to click bird photos, but most of the time I remained unsuccessful. I am still trying. It’s quite challenging and you clicks are being a source of inspiration. Thanks for this upload πŸ™‚

    • Well thank you! I have a difficult time too because they seldom stay still. I just got lucky this time!

  4. goodness … you captured such a moment it’s truly breathtaking. One that I could sit and ponder for ages.
    Love the Rumi quote — how perfect once again.
