My Totem Poles

I admire, and wonder while reading "Calling of the Arctic" (极地的呼唤)by Michio Hoshino. I wonder if I have disturbed the spirits that are sleeping in the land I journey around. 


Shall I find any totem poles? And could I follow any native legend of Ravens or alike? 


I find sunlight that arrives from somewhere 150 million km away, still bright and beautiful to trigger a long story . I find spiders, and I find critters, which form icons of the jungle.


I find monkeys that inherit the jungle. May I derive an answer if I look deep into its wild, big black eyes for long enough?



Does the monkey look for the same through my eyes? 


Do I need to remove my scratched and oily spectacles in turn? But Presbyopia may distort a supposed ridiculous answer to the worst. 


We shall be equally misunderstood by then. And I continue to admire and wonder.

it seems you are most respectful of the spirits that inhabit the land. i'm certain they are grateful for your quiet presence. :)

I find it hard to imagine that you disturb anything during your hikes. Your first photo is absolutely fantastic, and the macro of the spider web is superb.

I can not imagine you disturbing the spirits, more like you become one with them. I enjoyed these photos, each one is very special and beautiful. I would love to see that cute little monkey in person. Have a great weekend, Rainfield.

There are too many unanswered questions. Perhaps nature is just to be enjoyed and not to be questioned.
