But, every now & again, quite by chance, my patience is rewarded with an unexpected offering wanting to reveal itself to me. And so, the motivation to be patient, to linger & be surprised, is renewed. „Yes,“ I think, „I have let myself be consumed by the fascination of a brief sighting that, when captured, will never fade...
