were nature’s way of letting you stand up to what you hear
When you passed by that radiant tile
and reflectively peered at yourself,
you vainly realized
that you were
the most beautiful
(Note: Katydids actually do have hearing mechanisms on their front leg — knee — areas; this affords their narrow bodies with wide, stereoscopic hearing. This better, stereoscopic hearing aids greatly in locating prey and in evading predators.)
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.

Love this! Amazing photo! Did you make the tile effect? It really goes well with your poem – which is so funny 🙂
Thanks, Sci! Yes, the tile effect was made as an effect. It worked out well with this insect, I think.
It really did! 🙂
I think they are sort of cool looking. Great picture Tom the mosaic works well with it.
Thank you, Sonya! I like Katydids a lot too (and agree that they are cool looking). There are quite a few in our area along the river; they seem to like to be around the river bank a lot.
