Hearts in Nature (and in beads!)

There's just something super charming about seeing a heart where you least expect it! Over the last year, I've been compiling a few photos of hearts that I came across in nature.

I was taking a photo of some wild blueberries, mostly because I adore and wanted to capture that pink hue in the non-ripe berries, and was delighted when I creeped down low to see this cute beetle, and even more delighted when I saw it looked like it had a heart on its back!

Was on an early spring hike when I saw this depression on the trail, near a swamp.

The red on the back of this northern flicker's head is common, but sometimes it looks more heart-like than other times!

This dog was hanging around the local coffee shop in Belize. 

And finally, don't forget to look up!

Every year I try to fit in some Valentine's beading in and worked on this piece that I saw from a Bead&Button a couple years back.  Works up pretty quickly!



  1. Great pics! I always pick up heart shaped rocks. I even have a rock with a heart shaped depression in it.

  2. That beetle!! Of course, all the hearts in nature amuse me, but there;s something about that tiny beetle that tickles my fancy. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  3. amazing photos as always Amy ... love that dog :)

  4. Is this another RAW/CRAW?!?
    Anyway, the hearts in nature are sweet <3
