"Special Moments"...

Occasionally, one is able to experience a moment in nature and you have one second to capture it. This was one of those special moments. I only have this one frame where the fawn greets her mother. The mother has twins, the other fawn was out of frame.

"Asia for a Day"...

This Asiatic dayflower (Commelina communis) is a herbaceous annual plant in the dayflower family. It gets its name because the blooms last for only one day. It is native throughout much of East Asia and northern parts of Southeast Asia. In China it is used as a medicinal herb with febrifugal, antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, and diuretic effects. Additionally, it is also used for treating sore throats and tonsillitis. Recent pharmacological investigations have revealed that the Asiatic dayflower contains at least five active compounds.
I was surprised to find these growing wild near my home in Conway.
