守株待兔 (Waiting for Hares)

A peasant in Song Dynasty accidentally met a hare running into a big tree one day. From then on, he came waiting for careless hares days after days under the same tree....

"What a good day! Oh ya, are you talking about me?" A spider yawns all its way while crawling from underneath a leaf.

"Let's check the preys that came dashing against my nest."

"Not again! Where are all the reckless things?"

And the story continues.

That spider looks scary, but also beautiful. I'm glad I'm not the spider's prey.

Ya..I was waiting for a rabit but then again, most of them were off on a holiday? This spider is smart to just wait for the one's who wandered off after too much to drink. He looks rather charming Rainfields:)

Beautiful shots, Rainfield! I hope the spider didn't have to wait much longer for its meal.

The hare was quite busy. I'm not sure he is quite ready for activity yet. Excellent photos and cute story.

As always, you impressed me with your macro shots and I like the story that goes along with your great photos.

Seeing your great photos was one of the inspiration why I bought a macro lens. My problem is I don't have enough subject to snap. Few flowers in the desert and small critters.
