For Your Naked Eyes

I have neglected far too many things. My eyes have never told me the full story occasionally, yet I assume they have at the first place. With the help of my camera, I have a stronger pair of eyes today.

I first followed a few bees, they took me to this flower tree this morning. They never stayed, but I did after I was amazed by what I had seen through my viewfinder.

I was on the top of the dam that looked like an ancient kingdom fortress again.


The secret of these ants is no more a secret. They were caught red-handed on the missing eggs of butterflies.


Before they could remove all the eggs, this caterpillar managed to escape and survive through the metamorphosis.

It first started from a few flying bees, then to a flower plant, red ants, eggs, and finally came the existence of this caterpillar. They appeared in stages, like in a movie. Nature is the film maker, waterscape is the setting. The rest were the actors of the day.

I was just a photographer who magnified the moment, just for you naked eyes.

Cherie: We can't help. The strong will continue to prey on the weak, out in the nature, and in our real life as well. We have to be strong to survive. Sigh...

The ant seemed to be leaning on the flowering plant in the second photo. Taking a breather from all that climbing?
