Good morning everyone and Happy Hug a Bug Day. While perusing my 2011 bug file for something to post today I came across this Chinese Mantis (Tenodera sinensis) I photographed in August at the reclaimed strip mine. I know, I posted two other series of different Chinese Mantis from last season, but I thought one more wouldn't hurt.


As for these photos, they're all of the same male, an immature one at that as it wasn't fully grown. Maybe four inches (10 cm) in length. Fully grown they can easily reach six inches (15 cm). The nice thing about Mantids, is that they make for great photo subjects. They're not easily scared or intimidated and rarely fly or scurry away once spotted. They seem to be as curious about us as we are of them.


Thank you for stopping by...and I hope you have a truly nice day.

Chinese Mantis (Tenodera sinensis). This tiny immature (approx. 8 mm in size!) mantis did not want to hold still for a shot! It was moving too quickly in the brush so I coaxed it onto my hand.

* Para todos aquellos amigos de flickr que no tienen miedo a quedarse un rato pensando delante de una flor...


* Todo el universo se copió a sí mismo en su explosión e implosión continua. En su fuerza centrífuga que, como bumerang, volvía hacia su núcleo y se volvía centrípeta.

Las galaxias de las flores remedan ese estallido, ese “Fiat…” y esa perfección maravillosa para sólo vivir unos pocas horas…

Ante tanta belleza, cuando examino el interior de los androceos, granitos de polen, y su acción reproductiva en la planta, me quedo extasiado.

Es el caso del interior de este Hibisco Hibiscus rosa-sinensis cuando conseguí este macro.


* Evocación y recuerdo de la frase bíblica de Jesús, que aparece en el evangelio de Mateo 6; 27-28, y que puede servirnos de conclusión a nuestra interrogante.


…Considerate lilia agri, quomodo crescunt:

non laborant, neque nent.

Dico autem vobis, quoniam nec Salomon,

in omni gloria sua, vestiebatur sicut ex istis unum…


…Mirad los lirios del campo, cómo crecen:

no trabajan, ni hilan.

Y sin embargo os digo que ni el mismo Salomón,

con toda su gloria, se vistió como uno de ellos…


(S. MATEO. Evangelio.)


My friend Evelyn had a few of the yellow Hibiscus rosa sinensis plants in her yard. Here is a close-up of one of the flowers :-)

白頭鵯 Light-vented Bulbul【學名:Pycnonotus sinensis】雀形目 / 鵯科 / 特亞。俗名:白頭翁、白頭殼仔(台語)。為一般普遍常見的雀鳥,因常棲於市區、公園等常見人類活動環境中,所以與「麻雀」、「綠繡眼」有城市三俠之稱。雌雄外型無太大差異,雄鳥體型稍長,外型辨識重點為:前額黑,頭頂與頭後呈白色。因白頭翁族群數量眾多,常有雜交個體,相似種為:烏頭翁。因白頭翁有習性於清晨天一亮就開始鳴叫,又有「啼明鳥」之封號,所以只要一聽到白頭翁的叫聲,就知道天亮了啦!白頭翁也是被我列為不好拍攝的鳥種之一,雖為公園普鳥,但要將牠們拍的美且自然,真是考驗腦力激盪,拍攝多年以來,這倒是第一張稍為滿意的照片,原想拍攝其心裡為白頭翁設定的場景,但因為拍攝一整天下來,似乎沒有想要的畫面,發現原來白頭翁站在很不起眼的荷葉,卻有種相襯的感覺,或許是誤打誤撞吧!所以將其作品命名為「荷必在乎」,在我的內心裡,白頭翁為我上了一課。我也終於把城市三俠的作品拍齊了,繼續尋找我的拍鳥靈感吧!
