Walking into Wonderland part 1

I am amazed, and you are lucky.

We are seeing Wonderland is showered with rays of morning light. It is bright but not glaring. It is misty white. For those who are not hiking with me, please wait for the next post to witness the shower of light; I just cannot wait to show you the next few photos.

Actually I see a Babbeler while looking for White Rabbit, then am overwhelmed by the spider webs all around me. I am not ready for the bird right now, I cannot help but have to indulge myself in these lovely spider webs. This must be the arrangement of Alice.

Alice has arranged all these specially for you.Thank you Alice.

I like this view which was often seen in magazines or in movies. I cannot believe to see it in real by myself. The sunshine has lightened up Wonderland. All the webs are so visible.

I have not seen any web of this design before. So you are. I am excited. So you are. I am as happy as little Alice. So you are.

This is the macro view that I have been urged for. I heard your calling.

This is the first time I am attacked by mosquitoes. I was mistaken for a long time to think there are no mosquitoes in Wonderland. I am very wrong.

Mosquitoes like to see me standing still. Who care.

I do not have time for these mosquitoes. I have to enjoy to the maximum before the door to Wonderland is shut.

So you are.

You are lucky to have a 2 Gb memory card. You are lucky to have your battery fully charged. You are lucky to have followed me...

Thank you, Alice...Thank you, Rainfield and 2GB memory card! :)

Never seen a web like that either before. Interesting..

Diane AZ said...

The webs look fantastic in the morning light! Nice that your readers get to enjoy them without mosquitoes. :)

Gorgeous photos, Rainfield! Thanks for allowing the mosquito to suck on your blood while you brought us these pictures!

(Don't hate wordless wednesday, the jack fruit are found at a local fruit market..They carry many different tropical fruits if they can find them..)

I overheard Alice is 19 by now. Is Wonderland a reality?

As long as I am, you will be lucky as well. Though lucky, you have to wait for another day for my next post. I am still fighting against my limited time.

Great start, and once started, just cannot stop. It is truly Wonderland.

Besides the pictures, another amazing part of the journey is that there was no interruption by any passers-by at all.

My readers are so lucky. You are so lucky. By the way, I am lucky too.

Do you mean that I am having some "bloody" photos?

Poetic Shutterbug:
I am a paparazzo in Wonderland and you are as in my blog.

The Retired One:
They are white, and resemble your icicles.

Yes. And let me introduce you to her. Okay?

Alice always give me some surprises. This is one of them. Who knows what will be in tomorrow?

Mei Teng:
I like the way the silky thread radiate outwards.

You must be seeing Wonderland for the first. I am glad you have followed me.

Coffeeveggie addict:
Your comment is powerful. Thank you very much.

Stay tuned and never change channel.

Wow!! What a beautiful web you have.

wiseacre said...

Spider webs are fascinating. The only thing I don't like is what may be hiding behind the web. Especially where you are.

Mosquitoes must be horrible there. They're bad enough here but it's the tiny Blackflies I dread. Their season is short but long enough to suck you dry.

VanillaSeven said...

ooooo.... the spider web is hypnotizing.... I feel trapped...

Harshi said...

Wow... you made the common cobweb look so surreal. All the pics are wonderful. And yep, we took a glimpse into a lil wonderland.. all thanks to you. ^__^

Tes said...

Wow, amazing photos of the web, especially the first one. Interesting details. Thanks to Alice and 2 GB memory card, we are able to enjoy a wonderful post! *winks*

The one with just the outward rays of the web is really cool! I've gotten some good shots of orb weaver webs, but they have many cross ties (the classic Halloween spiderweb)

Cheryl said...

Yes indeed I am very fortunate in witnessing your journey. The web is amazing!

Ana Goncalves said...

Amazement yes, beauty incredible. :)

Well done for sticking around and getting so close to a most profound experience.

It is truly mesmorising and live vibrating.

Is this spider web done at the weta communications studio in New Zealand that make all the other Sci Fi movies ?

You must take David Attenborough there, and make sure we see you on his TV shows.

Thanks for following.

My niece went to Kinabalu this year. You must be incredible to climb all the way up, and take photos at the same time.
