The fly

The new balsam plant (Impatiens Balsamina) has started flowering. It’s bright red flowers amidst green leaves look beautiful. Probably, this fly too could not resist the bright colours.. it came to visit and take a closer look.

Another little fellow was also visiting… he had landed straight into the flower and busy exploring it inside out.

The Curious Snail

After a week of thunderstorms, the last two days have been sunny and bright. Many reptile neighbours have started dropping by for visits. There was a snake in the backyard 2 days back, followed by nightly rush of flying drywoodtermites, and a variety of snails.

We saw this big snail today. It was slowly making his way towards the front yard steps, while I focussed the camera.

It changed direction and started moving towards me. It came close, waving it’s feelers. It inched close to the camera, almost touching the lens.

I stood still, afraid that I would make the snail withdraw into it’s shell. It  waited for sometime, turning and waving it’s feelers around.  By then, I had stepped back… sensing nothing around, it turned back and continued it’s walk.

My world

Every day dawns beautifully, the rising sun and morning sky posing a magnificent picture. Morning sky is never the same.. every single cloud and color unique.

Nothing is identical in nature. Every stone and grass differ from the rest. Beautiful is our world, and equally beautiful is everything in it. It appears to anyone who choose to see the beauty and thrive in it.
