Nature's Place

To The Woods

I haven’t seen this flower before, in 12 years walking in the woods. … To refresh and renew.

Couldn’t help but notice this other form of life, a spent floret perhaps, or another plants seed. … Looked like a tiny spider before I got the lens on it.

And along came the honey bee, busy bee, non stop forager. She didn’t see me so I had a free hand, to capture an image of a fast moving creature.

I got more than one go, as we do in most things, and trust the results are good enough for now. Good enough, for now.

We, Katie and I, have a favourite place in the woods for meditation practise every second Sunday that’s the rule, and we renew it as necessary.

So far we have not met many people there as it’s one of those rare places few know about.

It’s a lovely place with a few large old dams that were once private property, now in public ownership.

On the way back today I came across a flower I hadn’t seen before and took a few pictures.

As I was bent over framing the shot a honey bee came along, buzzing flower after flower.

She didn’t notice me, being part of the background, to a bee, so I took the opportunity.

Gotta take the opportunity, or it passes …

If you mean no harm, or are food.

I’ll wait here patiently, til the flowers die.

Holding on, if only by a thread, it seems.

Food, to a spider … not a lot about these cold winter days.

Mother has gone missing in action, life moves on.
