    Stunning shots of nature photography: your pictures are a mixture of beautiful colours. These confirm once again that nature is anything but tame.

    I am a bug fan now and always was but have never seen anything so gorgeous, it is a meditation by itself.

      It is, and so can anything be, a meditation.

        very true. just gawking at my pink and green fittonias which never fail me, turns into meditation! but these bugs are nature’s astounding treats!

    Amazing as always. The one pooping really cracks me up for some reason. I think maybe it’s the colors and his lean to the left giving it all a comic book feel.

      Thanks David. After observing so many do it, many creatures dump excess weight just before they take off, as this one did.

        Interesting fact, thanks.

          It’s easier to observe birds do it, the fact of it.

          As a symbol it could be said to represent the spiritual process, if you know what it is and can see it. Yes, really …
          In order to take to the flight (to the light) of realisation it is necessary, essential really, to ‘dump’ the old as emotional attachment. Such fundamentals are often reflected in nature, as I see it.

    I just love that when we magnify these little beasties we can see all the knobs, dots, textures, hairs, colours, shapes not immediately visible to the naked eye.
