a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Through Marcy's Lens

There are some days you just want to say
P--- on it!
Never give up.
See sunshine on the webs.
and diamonds that appear in the morning dew.
Be grateful
you're not the spider's lunch
Hide if you must but only for a short while
There's always worm poop
But if the light's right
It's a work of art
Enjoy the sunshine on the web of life...
and smile.

Yep, there are days when I might say P--- on it as well. Ha,ha, but you are right - you just get through those days. I love the cobweb and that spider shadow is really nicely captured - really creepy - is this a big spider and I can just see the head of the snake coming out from under the wood. I do not know what kind it is, but noticed it is same colour as wood - neat. Ooops, upon second look it ain't a snake afterall - gotta clean these glasses. ha,ha I see legs - salamander maybe? Come on now, worm poop - I've seen the little piles before and never saw them shine like this - cool capture Marcy and one terrific web at the end. Love your photos :) Have a great day everyone - See Ya.

Now I at least know what worm poop looks like. O was wondering what that stuff was that always pops up between the tiles on the patio :)

Marcy is a master at capturing the amazing beauty of the simple and natural. I even loved that first one and yup, some days it's the best philosophy possible! :-)
