It’s A Big World




Spotted a little green alien struggling along up the trunk of a birch tree… He was about 5 mm, I think. The first picture is enlarged from the second. The third is the same tree – I liked the light and the shadows. The forth picture, below, is a different birch tree – included just to give you a better sense of what the little creature was up against…

This is very good, and I wonder if the effect it had on me was something you intended. It really is a trick of the eye, extremly good at fooling! In the first two pictures, I thought the bug was walking on snow covered rocks. And this was after much studying, before I looked ahead to see what it really is.

Well spotted. I think it is a Common Green Capsid.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
