Transitory; brief; momentary; passing; cursory; short-lived; fleeting; temporary. All meanings behind the word ‘Ephemeral’.
I think of all those times when I’ve attempted to photograph creatures great and small, specifically during a visit, a couple of years ago, to magnificent Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire:
A lioness stretching before settling back down with her pride for a lazy nap ~
This gorgeous tiger might look calm and peaceful, but seconds after I took this photo, he was off, sauntering into the woods until I couldn’t see him at all ~
Just as well cute little chipmunk kept well away; she allowed me this close-up before darting off at light-speed to scratch about for food ~
And then not forgetting this brief moment when a few birds of the feathered kind took to admiring Hubby. Once they got what they came for – food, of course – they took off, leaving hubby’s heart all in a flutter ~
Moments in time, captured in a snap. Aren’t cameras wonderful?
