Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth


This young man is growing past his fear of bugs.

Surrounded by uncles while his daddy grills hamburgers, he is almost convinced this ferocious-looking creature will not harm him.

The uncle seated behind him in the blue stripes is a firm believer in fearlessness in young men.

The uncle proffering the insect loves this little guy and doesn’t mind setting the example.

Together, they provide a teaching moment for a daddy who would completely approve.

Thus immersed in family, we grow.

  1. Lovely commentary and equally beautiful photo. Finding courage is also part of ‘growing’ up. Great interpretation for this week’s challenge.

    1. Thanks so much, Debbie! 🙂 Yes, he is brave, sometimes a bit daring, but they want him that way. I’m more protective, although not of this bug, which is harmless to humans.

      So glad you stopped by. Been missing you! 🙂
