Nature's Place

Flower Attack

Milling about the flower that feeds them, ants gravitate to the available nourishment, their need.

Daisy of a kind on a sea of colour in the garden. A busy place for creatures of a size.

Nicotiana, the perfect flower of the – poisonous to some – tobacco plant.

Come to me, carefully, or feel my deadly kiss pierce the heart – or finger – of you.

Aromatic lavender, a little bit of heaven. Bee in the love of love, it’s a pleasure.

The gravity of a flower is its nectar, to the smaller bodies that are attracted, until the gravity or attraction changes …

Much like the things that come and go in our lives over time, people, situations and things …

The planets about the sun, the moons about the planets, the comets that burn in our sky.

Earth dust to starshine, we (I) pass this way.

Who am I?

    Wonderful shots. Don’t those ants look relaxed in their perfect home that provides food and shelter. Do you know the name of that red flower with the spikes? Most unusual.

      Leonitis something, keeps coming up in the garden.

      Relaxed? Maybe not for long – https://www.rt.com/viral/399349-ants-experiments-colony-chaos/ – messing with tried and trusted genetic instruction.

      Thanks Lissa.

        Leonotis leonurus – used to grow it when I had a garden, for the bees, but they pretty much ignored it. Never noticed the little spikes before. That’s why we need macro!!

        BH re the ant story :( Eventually one of these GM plants or animals will get lose and create havoc.

          ‘They’ have a brand new toy and they will play it until it breaks, or breaks something else.

    Great pictures, again and again. Accompanied by a kind of, what shall I call it…humble comment. Inspiring.
