Little Things

I found this little fellow at my front door the other day.  Happily resting in the shade of our porch from the heat of a summers day.    Up close and personal shots of insects lead me to believe they are inspiration for every alien character on Dr Who and Star Trek.

And this funny little creation has built his home in my front garden. He patiently waits out the summer heat curled up in the large leaves, all the while keeping his fingers on the pulse so he knows when something delicious stumbles its way into his web of doom.  (Come into my parlor said the spider to the fly.)

If I could dive into a colour that colour would be indigo.  I love it with as much passion as you can love a colour. Luckily for me,  these crazy wild daisies grow like weeds around these parts and while they’re a bit small for diving into, their presence makes me happy.

 I’m not sure who calls this home, and frankly, I’m not sure I want to.   But I do wonder how it manages to make things so perfectly round in the hard dry summer lawn.  Clever critter.

Beautiful bee doing your thing.  Keep on pollinating and producing – loving your work.

All of these, plus many many more, were taken on my Galaxy Notes 5.  I’ve been spending some child free/work free  time playing with macros.  I love the way macro photography makes you see things in an entirely new light.  It opens up a tiny little world and makes is real to us monster sized humans.

Oh my goodness what amazing photos!

My Miss 6 is obsessed with insects, bugs and moths. She has been for years. I find some truly splendid.. and other’s truly creepy.
