Nature's Place

Nocturnal Visitation

Between the deep and the clutter of mind, she came.

The colour of nature’s wisdom and justice, Jade by name.

White beauty clasped this face of mine.

A kiss, intoxicating angel, divine wine.

Marked the passage, a swathe of dark time.

Dare I say it, no more a-crime.

‘Frog’ Hopper reborn, so fine.

Little friend of mine.

    Thanks all, glad you enjoyed the piece. The creature is called a Frog Hopper, I believe, and I come across such since I am in the nature so much and present to see.

    What a stunning series Mark!!! How did you ever manage to see this as it was emerging? :) I always seem to find them too late!!

    I find it amazing to note the difference in size and wonder how it could have fitted in there. LOL!! Same as when butterflies emerge.

    Man that is amazing, you always seem to blow me away with your macros. It is truly amazing how close you get and you get not one or two good shots but a entire series. Brilliant. Still looking forward to when you do some lessons
