I saw it on the grapevine

A Natal Green Snake ascends the grapevine, keeping an eye on me as I photograph it through the window.

It just takes time

Be reminded. A caterpillar turns into a butterfly, A grain of sand, into a pearl, Coal into diamonds. Have you thought about that drop of rain that becomes a canyon? Be patient, you aren’t done yet. WPC: Transformation

Even the gods can be experimental

This jazzily bedecked ant may be experimental with his appearance, but there was a greater experiment made with ants in the days of the Trojan War. The Greek island of Aegina was afflicted by a plague and the population was severely depleted. In desperation, King Aeacus prayed to Jupiter to repopulate the island. The king […]
