Nature's Place

Assassin Baby …

*Click on the pictures for a proper look …

On the flowers, he knows where to go for a bite to eat.

At one point he was eager to get on my finger … didn’t fancy testing his deadly kiss.

Though the pain, as sensation, could be used to separate from the mind that would attach to it.

Sensation is distinct from thought and emotion.

And thinking is stopped before it begins …

where it arises, from the self.

In the belly, not in the head.

    Beautiful shots, thanks. Looks a bit like a mantis.

      Thanks Mike. It’s an assassin bug. Like a mantis they both do killing well. Well, who doesn’t when the need arises. Hunger bites.

    Elegant little beastie. Well designed for it’s role. I’ve been stung by one of these in the past…not pleasant.

      I have seen them ‘chase’ other creatures with their pointy bit already inserted. Savage … wouldn’t want to be on the business end of one.
