A Spider behind the Fern

(Reincarnation was unrolled, is it a spinning of evolution or involution?)

It was in the morning when I spent my time hiking at Cerok Tokun. At this same time, when I moved around taking pictures of the wheel, I found something silvery staying behind. I might find an answer to my question in the previous post.

I moved to the opposite side so to witness the truth: a spider was building its home, as well as its fortune. It was now much depending on how I positioned myself in order to appreciate the discovery, but is it an involution or an evolution?

On my side, the spider danced with my flash. To the spider, I was actually an invader. In fact, it was very much annoyed by my disturbance. It was looking at me. It was talking to me.

Anyhow, it had the wheel by itself. The wheel might spin again. What will the next be? The story is still kept hidden inside the wheel.

Wait until it unrolls again....

I like the way you capture this fern and spider on camera. From your post description, I can see that you really appreciate nature very much. Cheers!

TC said...

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing that.

Cher said...

Harumi said...

A classic example of a transmigration at the end of the involute wheel. =D

That lil spider looks translucent I think and its home *the web* was showing up in the first pic. And ya, it's glaring straight at you.. prolly thinking you're after its territory.. the wheel.=D

Mei Teng said...

I like the last photo...where the spider has a translucent like body. Have never seen one like this before.

fufu: Wait and see. lol!!!

betchai: You received the frequency. Let's wait until the web rolls again.

Bangchik and Kakdah: I can't have the skill to identify the gender, my friend. How about your suggestion?

Kirigalpoththa: The spider has fallen into the spinning wheel, the story conitunes...

Salitype: You have a nice comment over here.A web within the wheel, spinning and coiling, hiding and showing.

Autumn Belle: welcome abroad. Hope you enjoy MyJourney.

Bengbeng: Si-fu has answered your question. Am I?

rainfield61 said...

cherie: Blogging in the world of blogosphere is the same. lol....

TC: Thanks for your comment.

Cher: No, the spider will disappear once the wheel starts to spin. It is another transmigration.

Harumi: I keep thinking of transmigration, reincarnation, alpha and omega, evolution and involution.... sigh..

Icy BC: The wheel looks only good after being captured as a picture. The reality is always too ordinary.

Mei Teng: The spider is really a bonus to me. I must agree.

Tes said...

The fern story is back and now comes with a company...hahaha!

Pacey said...

Wow, what beautiful and amazing shots here rain....love how the fern curls and the silvery spider behind it. BTW, thanks for the message on my last post. Glad to be back online...have a nice week.

These are great closeups. I am never able to get such good closeups with my camera. So, the spider was talking to you? Elaborate on that conversation, I find it interesting :)

Heather Dugan ("Footsteps") said...

What terrific photos! Your story reminds me of a time my daughter and I kept circling a tree trying to catch a photo of a tree crab that was circling equally fast to stay out of our sight!

Ratty said...

You have a great picture of the wheel and the spider. Maybe at the next turning of the wheel, the spider will find you on the wheel and take a picture of you.

rainfield61 said...

Tes: Haha!! The spider should very much welcome your present.

Pacey: It is very very very glad to see you again. The curls are saying hello to you.

Poetic Shutterbug: Yes, the spider told me not to waste time on him, went back to read more post from you all.

Heather Dugan: Very fun. You keep me thinking of Merry-go-round, my childhood.

Ratty: I thought you have said, " maybe at the next turning, the spider will look at me, and I'll be on the wheel."

VanillaSeven said...

Wow! Rainfield! I amazed with your eagle eyes! Usually I won't take notice of spider that small! Wonderful! :)

Gallicissa said...

Lovely sequence, rainfield. I particularly like the last one. I am getting hooked on spiders slowly....access to id help is slowing things down.

Dorothy said...

Fantastic photos and thoughts, this is my first visit I'll return.

VanillaSeven: The spider was spotted as easily as you have found me in the blogosphere.

Gallicissa: It is so lucky for you have been hooked only by spiders.

Dorothy: Yes, I'll have my door widely open for your return. See you then.

Ana said...

Did the spider end up getting more agitated? Or did you stop, from zooming in and leave it be?

Ayie said...

sharp eyes! you get to see that almost transparent looking spider =)
