A Phenomenon



I am addicted talking to these many varieties of mushrooms which have been now a phenomenon.  The DSLR that would never turn me into a ballerina is my faithful translator.

They come in different colours of outfits and hairdos. Old-fashioned or trend leading, dazzling splendour or plain dullness, some of them keep a distant but I cannot shout. Others, who stay right in front, are fond of listening to my clicking whispers.


Unlike the darting centipedes, they are always enchanting and elegant. 

Only because they enjoy doing catwalk in the wild, instead of busy at a boring toe counting contest.

I love the ballerina in her pretty skirt. I would never dare to dance if I had as many feet as the centipede.

Oh my....the mushroom I can handle...but I think I'd be screaming my head off and running the other direction if I were to come upon a centipede like that. [awesome photo of it tho]

Lovely mushroom, and frighteningly beautiful centipede. Beautiful shots!

I didn't know that centipedes have to count their toes .. but then I always learn something from your blog,. Even if what I learn is only one more example showing what a wonderful imagination you have!

Gorgeous pictures. Seriously.

That red centipede is awesome. I didn't know they existed!

Debbie said...

i am unsure which image i favor. it is exciting to see a cetipede here, simply because it is not a mushroom!!

Minoru Saito said...

The centipede is so colorful with its hundred red socks while the mushroom is quiet and elegant. They are both beautiful!

The mushroom looks nice and friendly but the centipede creeps me out! It is a great shot, though.
