Pause And Observe A Micro World
We are literally surrounded by tiny organisms that we seldom see. Part of their invisibility is our failure to look, to pause as we rush from here to there. Today my post is to show some of the fun, or interesting, insects in our daily lives.
For you who may be allergic to spider images, at the very bottom of this page is a picture of a Harvestman (Daddy Long Legs) - not really a spider but most people think of them in those terms. I include this not for the Harvestman but for the teeny tiny fly sitting on it's butt!
As days go on I'll post spiders, but for now I'll play it safe and not scare the britches off anyone. Spiders are not the fearsome, horrific creatures many people envision; they are beautiful, diverse, fascinating, and everywhere. Rest assured any spider posts will be clearly labelled.
|Capturing this fly on the Daddy Long Legs' backside was totally an accident, a happy accident, however:>) This picture is BIG so you can see the insect.|
