You really have to admire nature–every aspect of it. I’m hard-pressed to find anything that I don’t admire. I hear people say ‘the desert is ugly,’ ‘insects are ugly,’…there’s a judgment for everything. Personally, I don’t see ugliness in nature. I love the mountains and lakes and oceans and deserts and storms and animals and rodents and insects and…Okay, so wait a minute. I wouldn’t say that everything is beautiful. Flies aren’t pretty. Mosquitos? No. How about this…everything in nature amazes me.
So I started a nature album. I thought I’d start with benign things, like flowers and leaves. Although, I did stick a spider in here. So if you’re squeamish or phobic be warned. But I think you’ll have to agree that it’s a beautiful spider. These are common all over Okinawa and can get as big as my hand. Their homes are multiplexes. Even Black Widows are beautiful, although I do prefer not to find them in my home.
I’ll get off my bug-o-logue now because really, my nature album isn’t full of things that creep you out, and if I add something that might, I’ll give you a heads-up.
