Nature’s Artistry

I come from an artistic family and tend to look at things differently than a non-artist does.

I spent a lot of time this summer watching the large milkweed bugs mature.

Now that the plant’s all dried and dispersing its seeds, it’s taken on a totally different appearance. Even the angles of the four stems add an artistic element to the design.

The remaining fluff creates a pattern with their arrangement.

 Then there’s the intricate design of each seed.

These pictures would look different if they were taken at different times of the day, with different angles of the sun and in different weathers.

I won’t be posting as many blogs for a while, because I’m now in the beginning stage of shingles.

  1. I totally agree with your title, your pictures bear your statement out. I am so sorry about shingles and hope they were caught in time so that you don’t suffer too much. Lots of sympathy, I had them myself a few years ago but was lucky to get off lightly.


  2. I hope you have an easy time of it. I’ve never had them but I’ve heard enough to know that I don’t want them.


  3. You do have a wonderful artistic eye! Prayers for a speedy recovery!! 🙂
