Nature's Place

Seasonal Girl

She’s aware of me and seeks to escape my attention. Not from fear but as a habitual response to a peak of activity in her environment.

After a little while playing with her she stops a few seconds and poses for a shot. Treat them gently and they relax enough.

Love a sense of drama with the dark cloudy background. I suspect they live a largely relaxed life, with the occasional life and death clash.

Everything has or is one, a season. It grows, flowers and fruits, then it is gone.

Of course, the Botany Bay Weevil knows nothing of that.

It is engaged in now, being its beautiful self.

Sensing, unselfconsciously.

*

Its instinctive intelligence – as it is in all things – is focussed in its primary senses.

Seeing, hearing, touching, smelling – what enables it to endure here.

So it might fulfil its purpose in being, to reproduce.

As in all things, you may have noticed.

Earth robotics, you and me …

plus self reflection.

*

Reflection on instinct, a recipe for madness, what we got.

Until reflection is on being, something else …

no-thing in particular, nothing.

Letting what passes pass.

    Awesome work! You are very talented. May I ask what gallery plugin you use (if any)? The way your photos are viewable in a swipe-able gallery format with a single click on any photograph is very intuitive. Love it!!

      Thanks Bri.

      No gallery plugin here. Must be your software managing it.

    What can you say about I am guessing is a species of beetle?
