If the mind renews itself each and every moment… there is no boring job of drudgery.
[Ladybugs are largely carnivorous and eat little insects called Aphids. In this photograph, the captured Aphid is ejecting (i.e., offering) some honeydew, but to no avail. Ants herd Aphids — and protect them like cows – to get honeydew from them (like getting milk from protected cows); but this Ladybug is not just interested in the honeydew; it wants steak for dinner. (There were no protective ants within or around this particular Aphid colony.)]

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.

That is quite amazing Thomas, I love the level of detail in the image.
Thanks, Leanne! Hoping you have a great new year!
I was going to suggest when you come to the States to visit a holography museum to see some first-rate photography in true 3D (which I think is the best and classiest form of photography)… but the Museum of Holography in Chicago – which was one of my favorite places – closed… and the one in New York (as far as I know) is closed while looking for a new place to lease.
