It’s time to hit the road with my beauty

Have you seen the child’s face, when it’s is excited while playing with toys?

Excitement and enthusiasm are great to see in any child for that matter.

It’s fun always to watch small kids playing with the toys and their imagination at its peak!

I always wish to go back into my childhood and sadly that’s impossible.

Toys are children’s world and play is their language”   Garry L Landreth

Do you know the simplest toy in this world?

“The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent”  Sam Levenson

Thank you.

Pupa or Chrysalis or Cocoon?

“Understand that the hardest times in life to go through are when you are transforming from one version of yourself to another” Mysticool

PUPA

It’s a life stage of a moth or butterfly or other insects.

Any insect other than a butterfly undergoes metamorphosis into an adult, and the stage before becoming an adult is called a pupa.

CHRYSALIS

The pupa of a butterfly is called a chrysalis.

COCOON

A cocoon is a hard protective outer covering woven by the moth or butterfly to cover the pupa. It attaches the cocoon to a leaf or branch or any surface. The idea is to keep pupa safe from predators. 

BUTTERFLY

All of us must have inspiration from the butterfly’s life cycle.

My friend, every stage of the development of the butterfly teaches us beautiful lessons.

Check this link regarding the lessons an insect can teach us- INSPIRATION

“Patience doesn’t mean making a pact with the devil or denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that’s unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar to hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.” Sharon Salzberg.

Thank you.

Close up or Macro

“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world itself” Henry Miller

Do you love Macro photography or close up photography?

The results are amazing in both categories, my friend, more so in macro photography.

A dedicated macro lens takes you to another level.

Of course one must be aware the cost involved.

With macro photography, your perspective about Mother Nature changes totally.

And your respect for Nature enhances!

I assure you, you love it, my friend.

Colourless Wings

“The most colorful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colors and at the same time excludes all.” Vikrmn

I felt something different about this dragonfly.

Every time I come across a dragonfly, I notice its colourful wings.

The dragonfly above showing Black & white wings and a colourful body. Strangely its face & mouth resembling that of a monkey(side post..profile view).

Do you like colourful life or colourless life my friend?

Everybody wishes their lives to be colourful throughout.

But is this possible?

“If you are living a colourless life, it doesn’t matter whether the world is colourful or not!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Thank you.

Opening

Nest Openings

The above photograph is that of a Potter wasp nest with many cells and the multiple openings indicate that the pupae got transformed into wasps and entered the beautiful external world, to continue their life journey, not knowing that life is not at all beautiful and full of dangers!!

The remaining cells are yet to break open the shell.

Are wasps dangerous to humans?

Wasps can be dangerous and deadly.

Unfortunately, this is a generalisation. The truth is 99% of wasps don’t care what you are up to unless they are threatened.

And sadly they are being killed, because of their unpopularity.

And the indiscriminate killing of wildlife is going to invite ‘ecological apocalypse’.

“A king who feared wasps once decreed that they were abolished. As it happened, they did him no harm. But he was eventually stung to death by scorpions.”  Idries Shah

Why we should not kill wasps?

Not just wasps, there is no need to kill any creatures, by being ignorant of the implications.

This world doesn’t belong to just human beings.

My friend, Wasps form, what is known as ‘ecosystem services’

✔Like most other insects, what wasps do is help humans in pest control.

Without wasps, the world will be filled with flies, harmful caterpillars & dangerous spiders.

✔Wasps are good at pollination just like bees.

So please start loving the wasps and don’t get scared.

In the photo below, you can see the mother wasp checking her home carefully for any intruder and some cells are showing openings and the young wasps are readying to come out.

In the Macro photo above, you can see many young wasps peeping and trying to come out of the cell openings.

Wasp life cycle 

✔The wasp goes complete metamorphosis from an egg, larva, pupa to a full-grown wasp in the cell of the nest.

✔Queen lays her eggs in a wax cell

✔Worker wasp feeds the hatched larva by bringing caterpillars and pushing them through the openings.

✔Once the larva grows fully, the worker wasp seals the cell.

✔The fully grown larva becomes a pupa and over the time gets transformed into a wasp and breaks open the cell.

Take home message

‘If all insects on Earth disappeared, within 50 years all life on earth would disappear. If all human beings disappeared from the Earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish” Jonas Salk, Virologist

Thank you.

who is the greatest imitator?

What are your thoughts as you see the photo above?

Some embarrassing moments?

No need my friend.

Do we imitate nature or Nature imitates us?

My friend, there is no such thing called ‘Originality’ other than Mother Nature.

My guess is we are the greatest copy masters.

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”  Jim Jarmusch

The above photo is that of fruits of the Canna Patens Plant.

Each fruit can have 10 seeds, rounded in shape, black in colour and are hardened when ripe.

Canna plant flowers

“Stay wild, power child” Unknown

Canna Lily is a flowering plant.

Flowers are asymmetric and composed of 3 sepals.

Flowers can be red, orange or yellow or a combination of any of the three.

The seeds are used as beads in jewellery, rosaries and used in Kayamb, a musical instrument.

In Thailand Canna is a traditional gift on ‘father’s day

In remote corners of India Canna is used to ferment alcohol

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
