Gold Dust

(Click on this one; it wants to be big.)

Here’s a bit of synchronicity…I caught this picture of a pollen-dusted bee this morning while Rose and I were doing the watering, and then a friend shared the following breathtaking video on Google+.

(You might want to click through and watch that at YouTube where the picture is bigger. So very cool.)

And here’s another video that gave me goosebumps this afternoon: a whale caught in fishing line celebrates her freedom after a boat crew cuts her loose. The last minute brought tears to my eyes.
