Making of a Dragon

If a caterpillar is going to be a butterfly, can that piece of wood on my hiking trail be a dragon soon? 


You may not know but it has been here for a long period of time, and continues to evolve, transform or change, day by day.

It will certainly leave as time passes after soaking enough of rain, absorbing enough of sunlight and taking up enough of wind.


How great it is to catch a chance to wave good bye to a dragon before it flies away, but then a round-the-clock hike will be the only way. So silly I am.

Nevertheless, I am still serious about the making of a dragon, when a caterpillar morphs into a butterfly.


And of course, if the Peterbilt 379 transforms into Optimus Prime the leader of the Autobots.

Es ist schon möglich, dass es geht wie beim Schmetterling. Und wer weiß schon wo sie leben, vielleicht in unbekannten Höhlen oder erloschenen Vulkanen...

Servus und so long

What a little bristly fellows. The image from the forest reminiscent of our old-growth forests in Sweden, with old-growth forest. Preserved as a nature reserve / Brita

Transformers? CHANGE? What next?

I feel a 'moral lesson' in there somewhere--grinning!

Or maybe 'change' IS the "secret of life"! DEATH! Not as in really dying, but as living in the next phase of existence--certain change.

Wonderful wonderment, Rainfield61
PEACE!

what a great picture of that caterpillar, I can see almost the eyes peeking out on you, telling you, "wait for me to transform into a butterfly!" yes, how great it is to be out to say hi and also goodbye to wonderful creatures.

I didn't realize you were a fan of the Transformer movie. But that piece of wood definitely looks like it will soon be a dragon. Your first photo is fantastic.

Dragon made of 4 features of common Chinese creatures.

It is a beautiful shot but it might resemble a chimera specie of the dragon i guess. Definitely not the english dragon hehe :)

Your jungle is filled with magical creatures. You are the first to find a wood dragon.

However you want to think, the transformation or the making, I have to say that first photo is awesome, and hair raising at the same time.

Have a wonderful weekend hiking..

Icy BC said...

Yes, that piece of wood could just as well be a dragon. It's all depend on how you see it, and it's a creative way to see it morphs into different thing.

The caterpillar is wonderful!

Diane AZ said...

It looks like the caterpillar and the wood are both dragons, but one is much smoother than the other.

That's an amazing shot of the caterpillar! And you always find connections between seemingly unrelated things, that are mysteriously connected. :)
