It's a Small World


Hundreds of spiders are so miniature that they look like a lump of dirt. This lump starts to disintegrate when my "up-close" curiosity overwhelms. 

I think of whom to follow initially, but chasing two rabbits means catching neither. I turn to continuous high speed, focus on the big lump and hand over everything to my luck. 


It is easier when the miniature mushrooms are not rabbits.

With such a skinny body, their heads look abnormally huge, and their lucks are very much required when a small breeze comes up.

That is the side effect of extreme dieting.


And bald-headed, and the whole body shrinks under this unshrinkable head that contains a hard brain that determines to be miniature.

And small is beautiful.

That is a massive ball of spiders! Most interesting to see; you have a good eye to find them and a good talent to be able to photograph them. But I am glad you also included some mushrooms -- and yes, these ones have a very skinny supporting structure. They are beautiful!

Small is, indeed, beautiful! Love those skinny mushrooms and those tiny baby spiders. Wonderful shots.

The tiny golden mushrooms are so cute, they do have shrunken little stems. I shudder to find such balls of tiny spiders, I hope it is warmer there for them than it is here.

Reminds me of the itsy-bitsy spider and the water spout.

It's a small world indeed, with many kings and queens..... and I love the kingdom of spiders, very aerial.

۵ Olá!
Uma vez eu vi esse fenômeno do nascimento de centenas de aranhas... elas foram carregada pelo vento.
Os cogumelos magrelos são graciosos.
