Nature's Place

White Socks Wasp

A common enough wasp around these parts, just not at this time of year.

These are usually much earlier to the bees nest, to lay their eggs.

Maybe it was just born, a little out of season perhaps. It’s getting too cold now for their outdoor survival.

I’d get back in the nest and wait for spring, if I were her. But that’s not the way of things here, life must be lived.

Dragon’s Delight

Not warm enough for flight, much, but it soon absorbed some from my finger.

And took flight, but for a short time before landing again.

It’s a difficult existence for most anything, and everything changes.

Late in the season for this little dragonfly, it’s almost winter in sub tropical Queensland.

But the season is late and it was a protected spot, a small dam ringed by treed hills.

A nice quiet place where animated nature may present, in unique form.

Butterfly Huntress

When what is necessary is done, sit still. Look down to sensation, through whatever, until it disappears. And keep going …

In Blu

A flower spider, gentle looking creature … waiting without impatience for the right stimuli to leap into action … and deliver her deadly kiss.

Sitting, waiting … being a spider.
