Duet, Cicada and Mushroom

I follow its voices and am surprised that this cicada stays put even we are only within an arm's length. 

It is normally a low risk-taker that used to turn round and hides behind the tree trunk, or simply flies away. 



Then captured by the radar screen of my camera is a mushroom with a big brain and a long neck.

It suddenly dawns on me that both of them are on stage for a duet.

The mushroom sings songs that voices can never share. They are echoing in the well of silence.

This is Simon, that is Garfunkel.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and to me everything in nature is beautiful, cicadas, mushrooms, and even non-poisonous snakes.

Haha! Nicely done. But the cicadas certainly can make noise even if not from a voice.

My dog once caught a cicada and hid it in her mouth. It made a very loud noise, but I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. Finally I realized that it was coming from the dog. I couldn't get it away from her before she swallowed it.

Love that cicada and mushroom shots.
And very interesting perspective. You never fail to make me smile...yes you.:)

So fun to see the cicada, have heard them for years but have never seen one. Thank you for that! Always enjoy your shrooms as well and thank you for your comments on my blog as well.

Your pictures delight me, as your blog is far away from being false. The interest that you take in nature esp. in tiny dudes is beautiful.

Love, Naqvee

Hi1 Nice captures. Long long time ago,Japanese Haiku founder made this Haiku poem.
"The utter silence …, cutting through the very stone a cicada's rasp."

Diane AZ said...

Amazing sights and sounds, nature is full of surprises!

Brita said...

Thanks for your comment. It was long ago I was in your blog. Over the past year I've mostly posted pictures of my own blog. A lot has happened this year that made that my energy was not so great. Nice to see again your blog and your fanta genomic images and texts / Brita
