The word prompt from The Daily Post is Scale. The theme is the big and the small and how to fit the two together to have an idea of scale. As usual I have a bit of scale in nature for you to enjoy – unless you don’t like spiders then you may be surprised at how wonderful they can be. Don’t be scared have a peek into their world

  1. the camera shy spider is my fav here- the details are so clear….
    but the mood of the “Crab Spider lives inside a Rose” is pensive, fresh, warm….
    and side note – I killed a giant spider the other day – it was in the dining room and I felt so sad afterwards – grieved actually – but it all happened so fast ,
    I am good at letting crickets back outside (the rare times one strays in) but need to do this with our spider friends…

    1. Oh yes. Set spiders free if they are bity, if not I would let them live inside. Great insect control, except when they walk on your face when you are asleep. Yes this happened to me with a Huntsman.
      I think I may have disturbed the little bloke in the rose. Thanks for you great comments Yvette

      1. well thanks for what you wrote – I feel so guilty for killing spiders – ugh – but I have to admit – I have kind of done it a few times this year and it happens to fast – but I am becoming a little more aware – ha
        and you sacred the “bloke” = I love that word – I first heard it on jill’s blog a while back (from jill’sscene) –
