A Little Discovery

Another beautiful day and I'm chasing a yellow butterfly...

Mission unaccomplished but it led me to the grassy road-bank
on the fringes of the marsh. And bugdom unfolded before my eyes.
I don't know what this one is called but it looked pretty with
a touch of red!

There were several damselflies--in reds and bluish-greys but
they were really tiny. Couldn't get a good shot of the insect
which resembled a lady-bug but it was in orange.

Miniature blooms amidst all that green and luxuriant grass.

Returned home happy with what I'd seen, carrying with me a spray of
wild grass blooms....

Hello Kanak

Railings and power lines in the top picture!

And I like the way you include things even when you don't know precisely what they are.

(Most of the world is like that for me . . . !)

And the first one of the grass (the brownish one) is really mysterious and intriguing.

Nice sky shot for sure!

Great nature & wildlife photos Kanak!

Kanak you had quite a safari. It is nice how you show the tiny little nitty gritty things "prowling" in
the green green grass of home! I love the simple spray of grass flowers. I think they are very beautiful and you matched the vase and the basket with its subtle colours.

Nothing like a nice sunny day for exploring. I like your little spray of grass. Looks very cute!

I love travelling to your exotic garden kingdom and bugdom. There is a poetic magic to it all.

I'm having trouble with feeds to PICTURES JUST PICTURES .

Followers cannot access it at present through their Google Dashboards and it isn't possible to click to the blog through Google Readers either. I'm assuming people using other Readers will be experiencing the same problem.

Please excuse this format message - but I'm cutting and pasting it to 'Followers' and to other people who have left messages on PICTURES JUST PICTURES from time to time.

When I have worked out what to do - I will. Meanwhile, I will continue to post daily.

You can either use this link PICTURES JUST PICTURES or click through from the sidebar of LOOSE AND LEAFY.

Internet Explorer Bookmarks still work

(Members of Blotanical may sympathise if I say 'Isn't it Wonderful!')

It's so much fun to explore the world in miniature outside. Do you get any strange looks from people (like I do) when you crouch down to capture something tiny?

Carla said...

oooo bugdom! Wonderful!

Hello Kanak

I was here earlier, following on from a comment Walk 2 Write left and, for some reason, it didn't 'take'. Never mind, I'll come back to that later for, in the meantime, I've discovered Terra Farma has been voted the best Asian Blotanical blog.

Congratulations. Well done . . . and all those kind of things!

Thank you all for your lovely comments. A 'technical snag' kept me out of Blotanical for more than a week and my God, it was the longest ever!

I missed you all and it made me realise (even more) that this virtual friendship means a lot to me. I'm so glad to be back in my favourite place and will be at your blogs soon!

I get a lot of strange looks from the neighbours. They can't quite understand why I peer into what looks like (yawn!) grass to them or that mango tree which seems to bearing more birds than mangoes!!

Thanks! I wouldn't have known, at least not today...but for your message!!

CONGRATULATIONS on your Best Asian Blog Award!
