Nature's Place

Macro Day Seven

Good to have James and Nigel along, and a pleasant and instructive day was had by all I believe.

A breath of fresh air, literally. A relaxed day, as much as can be. And a focus on what matters, the simple sensation – for peace of mind – and a picture of our small nature in its element. The only rule is to get the best picture I can, to present our overlooked nature in the best possible light, leave everything as it was found and do it relaxed.


Weather was good, not too hot and the sun was shining with a lovely breeze refreshing continuously. It was lovely to be in the dark green of the forest. Generally there are not many creatures around after the rain so we went where I know some are developing and managed accordingly, you have to know where to look. And once you start looking there is no end to them, they’re everywhere.


It takes time to gather the stress in the body, it takes time to dissolve it. Everything takes time, it can’t be denied. So you might as well relax while it’s happening …

Again I was more occupied presenting something for the others to shoot but I got some anyway.

And don’t forget to sat thank you, to the bee or the earth or the space it all occurs in, why not? A little gratitude beamed into the evolving creation is reflected back to you, in time. By a mechanism the easterners call karma.

Whatever you call it, it works that way.

    That was a great macro meditation day.

    I had a ball of a day, you’re lucky to have such a great green place close by.
    It’s very generous of you to show other people why and how you do things.

    Here a couple of shots I took
    Triangular Spider Arkys sp
    Finally a weevil shot

    I have registered to join one of the message boards, just waiting for clearance from their Admin and will be happy to post there as well once I can and you put up a post.
