They Were Not Here

You do not see, because I did not find, any bugs this morning. The grasses were trimmed short, as short as the hairs of my Poodle. The bugs left like the fleas, maybe for the moon. Say hi when you see black dots on the moon, but not all of them are visible, for it is a crescent moon these few days.

Stay focus, you may hear them singing too.

These are the pictures I took last week. I squatted down like always, waited quietly for them to emerge, one by one, when they began to think that I was just a rock, a rock that would not roll. A rolling rock not only rolls over mosses, it smashes bodies of bugs along the way.

The meadow was as busy as a market place. That was last week. I shall see these bugs again. I am sure! They love the earth where life is colorful. The moon is only yellow all the time, or whitish yellow, orangish yellow and yellowish yellow, that’s all.

I love our earth too. I never plan to migrate.

And I am having acrophobia; what will happen to me at a height of 406,700 km above the earth?

You must have incredible patience for the critters show up and photograph in the right position!

The bugs may not be out right now, but I'm sure they will be back when the grass grows. Last week's bugs are still very good.

You must have been so cool as a rock Rainfield that those bugs just ignored you!

Bananaz didnt know that the moon is yellowish yellow in color coz of CVD, tQ for the info. No connotation to the clean color? lolz. Not many of the bugs managed to migrate they just missed space shuttle Atlantis.

Ann said...

They were not here because they went to KL. Did you? and did you wear a red or yellow T shirt?

Brian Miller said...

neat perspective in that second shot...grasshoppers are cool...

Icy BC said...

Your photos are always interesting to see, and the insects express their own personality so well.

Ginnymo said...

I love the face on that Grasshopper or whatever it is in the 2nd pic. You always get such amazing shots of bugs!!!

The bugs are not at my place now it must have migrated to another planet. Superb shots.

George said...

These are great macros. I admire your patience in getting these wonderful photos.
I hope you won't have to go to the moon to get more pictures of the bugs.

AVCr8teur said...

Are the bugs on vacation this week? Where do bugs go to have fun? Further underground? Perhaps they are just testing your patience.

Amin said...

What a beautiful macro photos!

Filip Demuinck said...

I am sure you need a good camera to do this.

Greetings,
Filip

Regina said...

(lol) I really enjoyed your post today!! In the coming days, I will stare up at the moon as it becomes rounder and I will think twice about cheese and wonder about those fleas! Well, I had to enlarge my whole page
3x- just so I could see that mug shot!
Thanks for putting a smile on my face-wishing you and your sweet poodle a fantastic week-

I noticed as Icy said that you show the personalities of the creatures. I am so glad to meet them through your pictures.

RNSANE said...

That first bug seems really irridescent, sort of dressed up in finery! Really great shots of creepy crawly critters!
