How Was I As In Their Eyes?

I am not a narcissist, but I would like to confirm myself as in the eyes of the insects. The thought drove me gaga again, but was still lucky that those monkeys never snatched my camera which was left counting down behind me.

(Gosh, this was the first time I saw myself from the back). I must be too creepy with blood stains on my legs, but without much hair, and that got them shocked.

The more I cared, the more I worried. Nowhere I could keep myself away from them.

And it was wrong to think of hiding myself after the turn. I met someone over there.

Anyhow, it was finally over .

I felt so good to find this was only a dream; and it was time to wake up for my hiking adventure again.

That grasshopper is also having a peek at you and your sexy legs..hehe. But the place looks so dark and lonely, I dont dare to walk alone there..

The bug pictures are wonderful. Those bugs think you are a giant. Maybe they think your legs are huge tree trunks.

With those big eyes all around, there is no place to hide. 8)

The second one is wearing a golden crown, but the third one looks very wise.

Tabib said...

Ha..ha!..watch your soleus muscle, that green creatures have a very sharp teeth and super strong mandible.

They all see a giant walking amongst them with 2 legs, but can't see your head just like in your 2nd picture.

The grasshopper will see many of you inside their compound eyes. I think it must not move its head while looking at you, otherwise it will feel like head spinning.

VanillaSeven said...

Cute socks :D Your legs are so fair!

Hmmm.. you don't seem as old as you have projected. I must check with the bugs. They normally tell the truth. Btw, I have a praying mantis that seems to be waving a 'Hi'.

Cool grasshopper pictures!

Oh no, one of the grasshoppers focused on my cute socks, I was lucky it never saw my torn sole.

And another discuss about soleus muscle.

Can I say, I have sexy and fair legs that look like tree trunks?

BTW, my legs have not told my age correctly, if you ask the bugs.

heheheh, The lesson is Don't talk to life guards and disturb their work. We were far away observing them in their training.

Next time I go, I find a beautiful New Zealand Pamela Anderson and photograph her for you ok?

You celebrate Christmas?

eileeninmd said...

Wow, did that bug bite you in the leg? He is staring at you. Great post and photos, Rainfield.

RNSANE said...

Great photos, rainfield...there must not be a lot of mosquitoes out there where you hike - or do you use some sore of repellant so they don't dine on you? ).
