A restless standstill in a pastel surrounding... by 

A fascination…. how could this fly for a moment stand so still and in the meantime move her wings in a tremendous speed. I couldn’t find the time to change the settings of my camera in order to ‘see’ the wings because she was in a great hurry.

‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…
