Nature's Place

Life Goes On …

Green Shield Bug with a drop of water from the hose, waiting out the shower.

Variations on the angle of approach, for background/contrast and eye level contact.

Pluck a leaf and raise ‘im up. Alarms the bug for a moment, enough to send it into hiding.

But not for long … turn the leaf over and there it is, exposed and hesitant – perceiving no danger.

Way to go … the upside down view of the world. Sometimes I think everything needs upending, for a fresher view.

A green shield bug at the end of summer, loitering on the greenery. Hasn’t yet been moved to insert that needle mouth into a vein for the available nourishment.

But it will … everything lives off something else. Until it in turn dies and feeds another form, ever burgeoning, ad infinitum.

The life behind unmoving …

    How do you zoom in so close? When I try to take a photo of creatures this small they run and hide.

      Thanks Tish. If the nature wasn’t already amazing … I’d get corresponding results.

    Beautiful pictures… and that drop on the bug’s back… or head? Lovely.

      Thanks Joyce. Little things add to the story. It’s back, I’d say.
