Bee in a Cosmos Moment

A Bee in a Cosmos Moment
This bee nestled in the center of a Cosmos blossom reminds me on this #WordlessWednesday that some #InTheMoment images aren't meant to be captured but a 'take it all in, enjoy; just be' moments instead. This insect hanging out in the flowering Cosmos wanted to bee the one caught on camera this AM. But here's the bee sting of the story. Camera-less on this morning's cycle, a spectacular rainbow came out of nowhere. What a pleasant and #InTheMoment surprise until I realized I could only watch as the rainbow stretched its 'larger than life' colorful indentation against the still stormy but sunlit sky. Meshed with fall's foliage and a canvas backdrop of mountain and lake, it was that picture-perfect, #InTheMoment but unfortunately a camera-missed pic. The bee sting of the story - sometimes we are just meant to be in awe and take it in. 
Take in the understory of fall foliage
Thich Nhat Hanh sums it up best about ‘Bee-ing in a Cosmos Moment’.
“When we look deeply into
the heart of a flower, we
see clouds, sunshine,
minerals, time, the earth,
and everything else
in the cosmos in it.
Without clouds there
could be no rain,
and without rain
there would be no flower.”

The heart of a flower
And of course, no rainbows so let me know if you were also one of the lucky ones that got to see that #InTheMoment rainbow today.
