Nature's Place

A Fly by Four

Someone said “Great pix, but flies are disgusting.” Disgusting is in the mind, a self imposed, self perpetuating condition that prevents from seeing the objective reality of awe inspiring – universal – intelligence behind the form. Objective reality – having its being independent of the observer. How can one see what’s behind the form if one is hung up on an interpretation of the form.

One, you, can’t. To get behind the form, the fact, you’ve got to get down to the fact. By leaving the interpretation out of it. And the fact is of sense, which resolves to the pure inner sensation – meditation.

It’s an exercise and there is no other way but to do it. When you’ve had enough of being lost in the mind–ing.

    Great shots Mark !

    I was on Photomacrography when someone pointed us your way … and a great find !

    By amazing coincidence I am taking my first steps into the world of macro photography this week (120mm extension tubes / Tamron 90 di 1:1 and K7) and shot this exact same species today … difference being I am living in Shanghai (and my shots don’t begin to compare to yours) ! As my shots came out with far less magnification than yours could you let us into the secret of your gear (and are these crops or original size ) ?

    Thanks !
