That spider...


One of the beauty of my little garden with it small jungle and a fishpond is that it has became sort of an ecosystem of its own. Small insects and animal comes as it please turning the garden into its playground. This little garden is part of my patio and it is a place that I did my gardening or just sat at the Kopitian table to enjoy my coffee. Most of the time when I am there I could see small creatures enjoying itself in and around the greens. That folks brings peace to my mind. It does made me appreciate the greatness of nature more than ever.

At time I would just flirt in my mind about all the possibilities that this little world could offer to enlighten our lives. Sometimes I would just daydream and enjoy those beautiful moment in time. In the midst of that daydream I saw a little spider perched on the delicate web that it has spun, careless of what's happening to its surrounding. It is in a world of its own and I am enjoying watching it doing its jobs creating that web, where it would live for a few days. Laying it eggs and then would vanish into its hiding place somewhere around there. This time I took the opportunity to photograph it with my macro lens and here I am sharing what I saw. Much as I had enjoyed snapping those images I believe others would enjoy it as well. Have a nice day.[Click on the image to enlarge]

lias y - Incy Wincy spider went up the water spout,
Down came the rain and washed the spider out,
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain,
And Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again.

Little Miss Muffet,
Sat on her tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider
And sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.Feb 27

Temuk, thanks for the visit and the good words on my kind of photography, as well as sharing your thoughts on this wonderful creature.

This spider is just the size of half of a matchstick and yet it is so elegant and beautiful. A wonder of nature for us to appreciate and enjoy.

Have a nice day.

Gorgeous photos, Pak Idrus! You could send these in to nature journals! Such richness of colour! Such lighting! Such detail!

I agree with you that your little garden and fishpond has become a self-contained ecosystem. I love your garden and verandah, it is lovely and peaceful to sit there.
