High and Low

Shh... , please keep your voice down. It is as curious as me and does not want to be disturbed.

I see macro shots of flowers with my camera, but how does it interpret this flower with its bare eyes ?

My curiosity flies higher than its, as least by the height of a tree. I zoom in on a butterfly that never really look like a butterfly.

It may be confused since thing looks very different from the actual under a close-up look or the other way round if its curiosity rises higher.

nice shot!

Diane AZ said...

I guess the bug in the first image doesn't care that is upside down so long as it can hold on. Beautiful captures!

ruthi said...

it is always a challenge to take a photo of a flying butterfly. you are lucky to have one no matter how tiny it is and even it looks like a bee to me. wink*

Icy BC said...

Mei Teng said...

betchai said...

the joy of experiencing the bug's life :) I am in silence with you :) but am afraid even the tick of the camera will make it fly?

fufu said...

Kirigalpoththa:
That's a black buttefly, but looks trasparent this time.

wenn:
I was frightened by a group of photographers with giant equipments that day.

Diane:
Then the world is upside down in its eyes.

ruthi:
I have accidently captured a macro shot of a flying butterfly recently, though it was not perfect, but good enough to keep me excited.

Icy:
It admires the flower like you do.

Mei Teng:
It's a bug's life, and a side episode of a human's life.

Jesson And Rey Ann:
Thank you.

Kilauea Poetry:
Have a good day to you. Send you my lush green, hope this make you healthier.

betchai:
Just do not know how it thinks about the flower.

fufu:
Yes, it is a butterfly. Part of 梁祝..

Bangchik:
This butterfly is as fast as a fighting plane, and is as high as a fighting plane too.

silent moments:
They are beautiful when you walk into your garden again.

I think you captured the lows and highs of a bug's life.

Life Ramblings said...

my neighbour's front yard is full of chinese violets and they absolutely attract bees, wasps and butterflies.

Sharkbytes said...

Very cool. The insect in flight is great! Looks a little like our boxelder beetle.

Frieda said...

Great pictures.
And I like your description, too...

CH said...

I think you are flying kite at Cerok Tokun.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Insects in flight are SO DIFFICULT to capture yet you have done it. Amazing shots both of them.

Harumi said...

Nice pics as always! That big insect in midair looks a lot like a big bug than a butterfly. It's a very rare capture!

my curious side goes beyond experimenting and creating things...
