Nature's Place


And a few more …

Though somewhat handicapped by the loss of flight he portrays the essential dignity of the natural – untouched by Human nature – things.

It may be the wings will not unfold – pump up. Such is not uncommon in the garden, though a life is still lived as much as can be.

Everything has its place …

Recently emerged, wings still unfurling, standing high overlooking a wild new world on the move.

From the long darkness of confined incubation to the shapes and colours of a sunlit place.

And the work begins, to fly then fly to fulfill a purpose.

To live and die a wasp, no more or less.

A small thing … not insignificant.

    Beautiful! Wings still unfolding.
    Wonder what kind of muscle that is, which holds the back body in this direction? Or is it a bonelike thing?

      The body is an exoskeleton, hard shell outside instead of bone inside. Don’t know about the ‘muscles’ but I suspect hydraulics may be at work.
