22: Alien World

10 Comments

Alien World

There are aliens among us
You may not recognize them
But they know who you are
They dwell in our dreams
And roam the streets at night

There are aliens among us
Are they peaceful
Or are they a threat?
Who can tell what they’re up to
If we don’t know who they are?

Perhaps I dream too much
Let my fantasies run wild
But I’m sure there are aliens
Cause i surely saw them
While i was lying in my bed

When I come to think about it
The aliens looked so familiar
Almost like a human being
They even have the same eyes
And spoke in plain English

These aliens among us
Creatures of doom and delight
Only seem to visit me at night
I’m now beginning to question
Was I really in our world?

The Spider’s Body

As i mentioned before, there are quite a lot of spiders in my garden. This one is the biggest at the moment with it’s body being roughly 2cm in length. I can’t get a picture of the top of the spider, so instead i focused on its body. Pretty amazing to see up close!

ps. in the original situation, the spider was hanging upside down, but for viewers convenience i’ve turned the spider upside down and mirrored the image

As the spider season is starting, i dived into the archive and came back to the surface with this one. Posted this one back in 2013, but as it is one of my personal favorites i don’t mind posting it again!

Have a nice weekend all!

Found a new spot

Yesterday i wandered away after a tough day to relax myself a bit. So i took off with the camera to a sight where the kingfisher was spotted. Along the way i kinda guessed my way through and i ended up in a nice and new spot in my hometown. I realize there is so much more to explore in my surroundings πŸ™‚ Please scroll down and enjoy!

To start of with a picture, i choose this one:

There is a nice creek flowing through the forest i visited. I could easily see why a kingfisher would want to be there. Lovely fresh water with a lot of great fishing water.

After that i sat for a while enjoying the silence of the forest when i started to focus some more on mushrooms, which are very early this year. Here are some of the shots i took:

It was nice to be out with the macro telezoom lens again. This time i noticed how much i have missed being outside in nature playing with the camera. It was like coming home again, not having to do anything but wander in nature and enjoy its presence.

To finish here are a couple more (abstract) pictures from yesterday and the day before. Including big spiders πŸ˜‰
