Nature's Place

Old Moulds …

break … eventually.










It can be difficult to break from the diktat of previous form. So I thought, again, to show some of the variety of the garden, for your viewing pleasure – and mine. Outside my usual ‘sets’, here is a small sample of the wondrous creatures that come and go in the usually unseen world at our feet.

      Thanks Tammie. They are few and far between this year.

    Amazed by the details of your photos. Each one tells a story of the insect, so interesting to see their daily life up close. I bet some would make great short movies!

      … at right viewing distance for the size. They are interesting little things, mirrors to us.

    Just amazing, the photos are more like art then instects.

      Well they are, both. Insects are art, and presenting them is too.

    ‘Wondrous’ indeed! The fine detail is exquisite. Really enjoy your garden studies.

    Terrific photos and the subjects are not bad looking either.

    • Mark said, on 13/02/2015 at 12:02 am

      Thanks Mac. Yes, good looking bugs too …

    So true! I am a bit fixated on bees (its just I have such a lot to learn about them) but last week We drove over an hour to a talk with 200 photographs of the insects of this region of France. When there is so much wonder and beauty all around, why confine myself to just a part of it? Amelia

      Everything has its time … knowing when time is up and letting go is another matter.

    Meant “Awesome”, always see the errors as I’m hitting “Post Comment”

      Could have been worse … Thanks David.

      They are, and how resilient to survive long in this deadly existence.
