The first one or the second

It is always true that the early bird gets the worm, but only the second mouse gets the cheese. Failing to be the former, we lost the worm, but the consequence of being the first mouse is fatal, yet this unlucky one is a must in order to get the story started.

When to be the first one or the second is crucial which I need to consult the woods, or to observe the comings and goings, in the jungle.

Interesting post, do you think the critters wonder if it is worth being first or second. Wonderful photos.

Hi,
I like the 1st one most. They look after their children very carefully,some times more than human.

Regina said...

Definitely the first one. So cute and nice words.

George said...

I think you must be first on the mountain each day to get such beautiful pictures. These are wonderful.

Regina said...

I was happy to find I could enlarge the first photo! Terrific..of course your rain dusted macros are sharp as well! I think you have an excellent point about the first and second. Sade (singer), on the subject- "one day it's chicken and another day it's feathers" I never thought of the second mouse being so lucky!
Glad to see you back..hope everything is ok..:)

I don't mind being the second, since it looks awesome in that sand tone color.

Lrong said...

Excellent shot, that third one... very sharp...

Ratty said...

Now I'm not sure whether I'd like to be first or second, an early bird or a mouse. I think I'd like to be the first so I can face the danger.

The little critter looks like it is walking right into a spider web. Great shots! Wise thoughts. Do you want photos of mouse, birds and worms to go along with the story? I have photos of dead mouse caught by Clifford. :)

How interesting, for the second to appear victorious, the first has to jump in, succumb and sacrificed.

Is that embun on the 2nd photo?

Mei Teng said...

The insect looked like it was swimming in the 2nd last photo :)

Amin said...

I agree with Ratty.
Beautiful photos! Well done!

Sharkbytes said...

Well, I'm confused, but maybe the second monkey ate the grasshopper?

Ginnymo said...

Amin said...

I find the first photo more wonderful!

Malar said...

Interesting post!
I have many monkeys in my place that sometimes i overlook them...

betchai said...

as always, wonderful thoughts, and so are the photos.

Autumn Belle said...

The 2nd and 3rd picture look like a 'chee chut' or cengkerit, those that little boys like to catch and keep. I think the birds will love it, just like we love KFC!

Ruthi said...
