Nature's Place

Dreams of Coloured Yew …

… and Me.

This little fella got lost one day, climbed onto my foot and, weary of the trek across the great waste of concrete asked for hospitality from a fellow traveller and for me to point the way, since I am so tall and can see so far, he said.

How could I refuse? I gave him some colour to play in before feeding and watering and sending on his way, out into the wilds of the garden where he promptly dug down below the grass and into the soil – built for digging, he was right at home and soon disappeared from sense. Or in sense. Hmmm!

Could be she.

    when I look at your amazing macros…. thoughts of people come to mind. It is a wonder that people are so self interested when we are surrounded with so many amazing creatures, life forms, beings…. interesting and magnificent life.

    anyway…. your photos are amazing, so cool that the bug asked for your help ;=}

      Well, it is our nature so ‘we’ are in it as it is in ‘us’. Nature is sense, people are lost in the mind of thought and emotion, two seperate realities.

      Talking bugs are great. ((:

    Lovely colours Mark. A very entertaining little fellow (or girl). Especially liked the detail of the index finger in the second image. Thanks for sharing.
