New Mexico Sunrise and Walking Stick Bug Surprise

Beautiful blessings in plain sight.  We all have *those* days where everything feels off or seems to go wrong.  But, have you ever have had days when everything seemed to be a wonderful, beautiful surprise?  Sometimes all we need to do is slow down, breathe and take a look around. 🙂

I was exceedingly blessed to witness a most spectacular sunrise last Thursday morning.  AND I happened to have my camera with me so I was able to snap a few pics to share.  Click the images to open larger images. Use your browser back button to return to this page.

Later this very same day, I found this little treasure:

Phasmida - Walking Stick Bug underside

Looking through a window at the underside of a Phasmida (Walking Stick Bug).  It’s about 5-6 inches long not including the super long antennae.

On the outside of the window (it’s highly reflective!). Gorgeous, subtle colors.  Such a treat to see this amazing creature.

Now…how about you tell me about your blessings in plain sight?  😀

    I enjoyed the pics. I’m in Az and we get some beautiful sunrise and sunsets also. I like the bug. Nature does some amazing things.

    Your sunrise picture is awesome. I also see lots of great sunrises
    on my trek to get the morning paper and often have to grab the camera.
    We are approximately 5 miles from Lake Michigan in Wisconsin and high
    enough on a hill to see great sunrises AND sunsets.
    Nature is always interesting and amazing, isn’t it? I tried to attach
    one or more of these recent ones but couldn’t–so you’ll just have
    to take my word.
