Nature's Place

Ancient Life …

Hopper, of a kind …

Getting up close …

And he’s had enough, as he turns away …

Three amigos …

Protest …

And hide …

An other kind of hopper …

Missing a leg perhaps …

Symmetry …

Odd man out … maybe …

… a relative of this one …

Hmmm, hopper legs …

Need a hand … ?

Heads up …

… on a gum tree in winter in Oz.

Out in the bush a tree is losing its old bark as it swells from the rains.

Shedding its skin. Under the bark various creatures take shelter.

From the rain, the cold and some of the neighbours no doubt.

Not always easy to find but there are often more nearby.

The forms of sense may be few but the life …

… always is … ancient, and new.

      Sometimes they make it clear they don’t want me poking the camera at them.
