see the ant?

" How strange and wonderful 
is our home, our earth, 
with its swirling vaporous atmosphere,
 its flowing and frozen liquids,
 its trembling plants,
 its creeping, crawling, climbing creatures,
 the croaking things 
 with wings
 that hang on rocks
 and soar through the fog, 
the furry grass, 
the scaly seas."

  Edward Abbey

 that the world has a
 then you won't hear it 
 you won't think
 it's alive. . . "

That first big leaf pic is so much like a wing. I can imagine a fairy flying around with wings like that.

I love how you capture beauty in things others may overlook. It's wonderful to see the art in the ordinary (not so ordinary).

(In a week I'll be on my way to Hawaii. Am soooo excited.)
