A Sneeze, a Cue


Alice and Laura always cross my mind whenever I see a spider once I named a bee Alice and the girlfriend of a beetle Laura a year back. It is a cue, and a sneeze, as the Chinese believe there are people talking about you when you sneeze.


This is a mere myth, and I should understand this. 

But who knows not only Alice and Laura, there may actually be mushrooms, trees, mosses, ferns, monkeys, butterflies, dragonflies and so on that are talking about me. They are waiting for my return to the jungle.

"Why Sunday is so far away?" They murmur.

How you get the perfect lighting for all these shots inside a jungle, is a big mystery. Awesome shots Rain!

You are right. We really know very little about what is going on in the Jungle (or the forest or at the beach. The creatures have their own world. But you see more than most of us do! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

you always have a way with words and make me look at your pictures differently. I love the depth you create in your words and translate to the pictures, make my imagination run.
