The Art of Making Mistakes

The act of making a mistake can be artful. Or maybe it’s just all in the timing and I failed. Whatever way you look at it, the image I wanted eluded me.

I ended up with something better, in my opinion. I ended up with a story.

This little ladybug wasn’t very cooperative. As is the way with life, sometimes. Perhaps she didn’t want her photo taken; perhaps I could have used a breath mint. I’ll never know.

She was making a beeline for me, so I decided after five failed attempts I would choose a spot to focus on and wait for her. Yeah, right! When she was just about to walk into my field of focus she turned on her heels and hightailed it away from me.

“Please don’t run away!”
