See the in-challenge comments. Two rejoice in your Fly, while two can think of nothing to say but to tut-tut the lack of sharpness (helpfully pointing it out in case you were perhaps unaware of it).

Which vision is the most wonderful? The rejoicing vision, or the denouncing vision? With which vision would you wish to be blessed? With which cursed?

Moving on, what about Timothy's WS Merwin poem? It could also be said to be slightly out-of-focus in relation to your picture, and yet that unexpected soft shift in point of view is also a kind of rejoicing, isn't it? It was for me, thanks, T.

And what of streetpigeon's "Cheshire smile'? That's rejoice-able rejoicing! Perfect.

Thank you.

The fresh light of morning on this butterfly -- as I assume it is -- makes a marvelous highlight against tangled undergrowth. It's a beacon, an arrow, a Cheshire smile. Goes to show that there's no end of wonders to be seen. Glad you've shared this one.
