    Nature is always opening doors, inviting curiosity and exploration, the greatest teacher.

      With nature a reflection of self the student becomes also the teacher, a some-times precarious balance.

    The shape of the wasp is fascinating. It’s abdomen doesn’t seem to belong with its thorax. Not many creatures have such a stark waist.

    Was a magnificent moon in a clear sky last night. And bright and sunny this morning. An invitation …

    This beautifully captures the extreme attenuation of the wasp’s midsection, which previously I had appreciated only in a vague manner. Thanks for making it so much clearer!

    Another beautifully defined shot. Looking at this one makes you realize why people say someone has a “wasp like waist”.

      Thanks Mac … ‘Even’ insects serve to reflect back to us.

        Argh!!! I was working from my tablet and didn’t catch it! An old fashioned keyboard is so much easier!!! I was photographing insects today too, Mark. My equipment doesn’t give nearly the resolution as yours, but I like the way my dragonfly photo turned out. There was a tiny green frog right at dusk hopping through the grass, but I never managed to get a clear shot. This is a wonderful time of year up here in the north to photograph wildlife. I’m glad you are finding some interesting beings now, too. Best wishes, WG

          It’s out there now, no getting it back.

          Saw your Damsel … Yes, summer time in the north, I remember it.

          The weather here is lovely and warmer for this time of year, apparently it’s heating up around the world now, undeniably so.

          Best … M

            Undeniably, as much as someones keep manipulating it. So hot here this summer, we are breaking records every week. And storms! Best wishes, WG

    Have always been afraid of the wasp. Now I know why.
    Great shots as usual.
    Shine On
