Real beauty is…



Real beauty is much deeper than what you can see!


[Many Wolf Spiders hunt during the day.  Wolf Spiders have excellent vision and a highly developed sense of touch.  Male Wolf Spiders wave  and motion with their large, often hairy pedipalps in a rhythmic pattern as they approach suitable female mates.

Additional note:   I will be posting more spiders (and similar creatures) in the Halloween month of October.  It is neat that they are part of an old Halloween tradition (that is fun for kids).  However, it is unfortunate that many children grow up associating spiders with “being frightened” and as “terrible creatures to be horrified of.”  As the late, superb naturalist, Steve Irwin often propounded, spiders and snakes can indeed be seen to be majestic, marvelous animals, truly beautiful in their own ways.  We must, as Steve Irwin so graciously suggested before his untimely passing, be far better caretakers of Mother Earth.]

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

    • Yes, Mitza! It’s so nice when people actually see spiders for the true charm that many of them have (instead of just perceiving them as being ugly and deplorable).


  1. Great picture! I think spiders are amazing. I was one of those children who grew up afraid of them but as I took the time to get to know them, I am so grateful they are in the world. Glad I went looking for a new blog to follow today and found yours 🙂
