Nature's Place

The Joker


*Click on pictures for the bigger version …




Outlandish looking thing, perfectly camouflaged on the spent butterfly bush flowers.

However odd the appearance nature has another form for every space.

And occupies every need for one purpose, reflection.

Unerringly – it only looks messy.

Odd is natural.

      Hail Odd the Great. The odder the better.

    Hello, Great post and photos. The katydid look very indignant at having a camera poked in his face.

      Thanks Kim. And I thought it stood upright just so I could get its portrait, but it is a proud looking thing.
