Little spirits

They began to emerge gradually; they jumped, they crawled and they flied from grasses to leaves.

I did not drop down into a rabbit hole like Alice did in the Wonderland, and Cerok Tokun was as normal and usual, but they were not visible normally. I need a password whereby Cerok Tokun is the interface between us. The password is "peace_of_mind".

The first one that came into sight was a little spirit that was a stranger and weird to me.

This fly looked so naked without the usual clothing printed with dark grey stripes.

This little one must be one of the many species of grasshopper that exist in this undergrowth.

They seemed to be living peacefully around these little purple flowers.

But who knows one of them maybe a predator or a prey to another.

wow... amazing macro shots of those weird but interesting critters. I am so jealous I don't see a lot of interesting critters around here. Or maybe I really need to go out and hike more. But then, where will I buy time?

Beautiful shots...and here I just finished watching Alice in Wonderland. The 3rd insect picture will suit Alice in Wonderland well.

I have seen a grasshopper with the colors like that first one. It was so amazing that I drew a picture of it. Very cool!

The whole new world of macro here.
I think the 2nd shot is 'Robber fly'

Tabib:
I think "fruit fly" maybe the correct id.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

I am in awe of these shots. The colors on the first one with the brilliant macros just stun me. Fantastic!

RNSANE said...

What a collection. That first one has beautiful colorings. I wonder if they peacefully coexist or if they are enemies. I guess it depends on whether they eat the same things and whether the food supply is plentiful!

Ayie said...
