One At A Time

What is taking place when I go hiking at Cerok Tokun? What happens in every split of second? I have surely missed most of them and only to witness one at a time.

Whenever I meet them, these wasp moths are always busy, very busy planning the future of their next generations. Oh, first things first.



And when I discover spiders in another second, they are there waiting for silly Laura the beetle or Alice the bee to come by while wearing a pair of sun glasses, sipping an icy cola, listening to iPod and humming "I've been waiting for a girl like you to come into my life".


Yes, I have missed most of the moments and only to witness one at a time, but this is enough to make my day bright.

The spider and the worm looks incredibly compact and beautiful. The colour really stands out in the first photo. Your photography reminds me of nature every time.

The first capture is wonderful! Loved the colors in it! And the spider is cute too, though I am very scared of them!
Have a nice week ahead :)

betchai said...

you always bring big smiles my way Rainfield, aside from your excellent photography, I just love the wit and humor in your philosophical thoughts, so good to know they are busy planning for their future generation :)

i am laughing at the imagery you gave of the spider singing and waiting for her next meal. :)

What great visuals you gave for my mind. Too cute! Wish I could find insects mating like that. They're too modest around me!

George said...

These marvelous macros make my day brighter. Both are wonderful, but I wish you could have gotten a picture of the bee with the iPod.

Jean said...

This post is a great reminder to stop and notice the sometimes subtle action taking place in nature.
Hmmm....now I am wondering what music you listen to.:)

Frieda said...

Wasp moths... fascinating, I have never heard of such animals!!
You really put yourself in the head of a spider ;)

Deb Crecelius said...

Brightens my day, too!

Liz said...

Amazing captures!

Lighthousegal said...

Great photos. The moth is so brightly colored. Though these critters are usually found to be creepy by most, your photos show them very well and show that they are just little creatures trying to survive.
Thanks for stopping by my Blog and for your kind comments. I hope you will visit again!

Oh you and I think a lot alike. Nature has so much beauty and we must take the time to see it and embrace every second of it. Your photos make me happy and regarding your comment I am a tree also:) B

Beautiful images, Rainfield!
I should be like the spider, singing and waiting for my next meal :-)

Quiet moments beautifully pictured and described.

We can't see all the moments -- the trick is appreciating the ones we do witness! (Thanks for sharing yours.)

ZielonaMila said...

Beautiful photographs, I like to admire such views. I am greeting

Hi Rainfield, you do have wonderful posts. I can just picture a bee singing " I've been waiting for a girl like you" Great macro shots. Have a wonderful day.

Cher said...

what was presented to you one at a time is enough to make your reader's day bright too. :D

kumittyi said...

Your pictures are really bautiful.
I have been in bad mood for five or so hours since I came back home.
I should sip an Japanese green tea,listen to music and hum like spiders which you discovered.

Ann said...

Beautiful photos! I love your witty comments.

A life of a bug is never boring and a few sounds like a soap opera.

We don't have to own it all, see it all or do it all to be content and happy. One blessing at a time is a wonderful way to live.

CameraCruise said...

Great post, beautiful photos and words.

Emm in Lodnon said...

Wow, that wasp moth is one scary looking creature but what a great photo! Are they as nasty as they sound and look? Great capture of the spider too!

Ratty said...

We try to see as many moments as we can, and each one is a great one.

Love the colors in that first one.

EG CameraGirl said...

I love seeing the critters through you camera lens and reading your commentary. :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Take your moments where you find them! We know we miss some. Alice the Bee and Laura the Beetle better hope they miss the moments the spider is waiting for!! I like the way you think -- it's like a nature story for grownups here!

RNSANE said...

At least they don't have to save for college! Yuck, you know I don't like spiders...except in your photographs.

Your blog is a great pleasure to the eyes. While reading it. I have experienced the unforgettable hiking despite my silent sitting by the window. Thank you http://arthiker.wordpress.com/2013/08/29/abc-of-self-deception/
