They do not sow, nor reap, nor gather.

This post was originally published on 7/9/2017.  Updated on 15/10/2018. Birds have that something that is a little more challenging for me as an artist than most subjects.  I am a bird-lover and I guess the main reason why I am attracted to birds, besides their beauty is their happiness!  Painting and photographing birds have filled many...

What attracted me to these insects was the strange 'stuff' attached to their feet, and as they moved very quickly little bubbles were produced around the feet.  Fortunately, I had my camera with me and took a few pics of these odd insects. They look like spiders but they are insects from the family called... Continue Reading →

The fact that she... Continue Reading →
