Dressed not in flowers

But leaves

It still glory

Receives,

Glowing without

Reserve

To the accolades

It deserves.

Seated Snow

April snow3 NaamaYehuda

A look back

To what is a

Near future indeed

When snow will

Again

Take a seat

And winter will

Once more

Repeat.

 

 

Note: No filter was used. This was the actual monochrome light on a sudden snowy morning this past April.

High-Tail

Silver light danced on waves

Under skies of

Mercurial clouds,

And she pranced

On the sand

Tail up high

Free and proud.

Water Weave

And the clouds

Bowed

To ocean

Weaving rain

Waves to sky

Kissing veils

Onto mountains

Drenching wet

Speeding by.

This is no macro shot

Of a small spider

Up close,

But a photo of one

That is bigger than most.

Sized to barely fit

In the palm of a man,

It clung to a web

That could use

A steadier hand.

 

 

For the Lens-Artists Challenge: Big

Trivia: Giant Golden Orb Weavers (Nephilia Pilipes) are named for the way their intricate webs shimmer in the light. Females can grow to 20 centimeters (8 inches!!) in size and have a long slim, black body with golden spots on their back, and long skinny legs (the males are about 10 times smaller, sorry guys). Female Giant Golden Orb Weavers can build gigantic webs that can span 2 meters (6-7 feet!!) across, often between large trees, where they can be seen resting on their webs and protecting their territory (yep, that’s exactly what the photo we took above depicts). They bite their prey to immobilize it, and though their bite is not dangerous to humans, if you do get bitten by one of these mega-spiders, I cannot guarantee that you will not have LOTR-style nightmares of massive arachnids coming to get you.

Atop a daisy’s crown

Of petaled

A bee hovers

Set to hold

The pollen sought

Like precious

Gold.

Pink For A Queen

There was a small patch

Of pink

In the large sea

Of green.

Flowers with

Heads together

Like bouquets

Fit for a queen.
