Photos of the tiny creatures. I'm loving green!
This was a beautiful morning! The night before a friend handed me a very small bug just like the one in the second photo, so since it was a beautiful morning I thought I would go on the hunt for another one. I first found a dead one, but as I looked further found this one ready to pose. These tiny iridescent creatures are really very beautiful! During my search I also came along this bug in the top photo. I think it's called a May Fly. Is that right? I also was told these bugs make great trout bait.
Here's to a week full on anticipating, hunting, and changes.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
