FIRST OFFENDER!
TJ in with the most interesting sand spider ever. Remember to click through and like on his original post. @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Life is too short to drink bad wine

Christmas Spider This strange spider, little more than a centimetre across showed its spectacular abdomen as it clambered about on the sandstone rock-face.

Through the spider’s web

The wind whispers gentle songs

To the new born day

…O…

Version 2

Through the spider’s web

The wind strumming lullabies

To the new born day

Which do you prefer?

Ronovan Writes Monday Haiku Prompts for the week this week are Sing and Day

This is a photograph I took of a peculiar spider that was on a rock wall at a quarry where we performed a Christmas Concert on the weekend.

As most people know, Perth is rife with critters that crawl, bite and sting but I have never seen this particular spider before. Perhaps I have discovered a rare new species!!!

A BLOG WORTH KNOWING.

In the course of reviewing the Weekly Haiku Challenge I come across some great blogs. Well … all of them are great in one way or another. With some it’s the Haiku. Some the stories told. Some the personality behind the blog. And then there is the photography of others. We have some great photography.

One blog that truly focuses on the combination of the two is one of my favorites and I wish I visited it more and have been of late. I fail to click ‘like’ the way I should. I’ve explained in the past how I do that. I truly do forget. Not sure if it is brain damage specifically from or a side effect of the concussion I suffered, but there are things I often can’t seem to grasp if they are not in my routine.

One thing to keep in mind is the photography you see here is copyrighted so look but don’t touch without the great man’s permission. Um, although, I um, sort of, uh, never mind.

But the blog I want to draw everyone’s attention to is:

Haiku Hound

“I care passionately about the natural world and respect the need to preserve it.”

I believe you can see why the site has its name. Meet Denis and Charlie Girl. You guess which is which. I believe Charlie Girl finds the subjects and Denis actually takes the photos. Maybe  that will give you a hint as to which is whom.

Denis has this amazing knack to capture what at least I want to see. His work is something you would see in National Geographic. I do not exaggerate this. Along with the photography he gives tellings of how he came upon the subjects or more about what the subjects are.

With a place like Australia as your source of muse and models you can’t go wrong. Not that Denis keeps strictly to the island nation. He does stray at times. His choice of subject is fascinating each time in ways he doesn’t even realize.

This coastal Tea-Tree is one example of one thing Denis sees and something else I see.

See more of Charlie Girl as well as perhaps some of Denis’ photography.

I didn’t get his best photos. That’s for you to go and find. Although that blood moon is making some of you jealous. Just so you know, these are all copyrighted by Denis. So you need to ask him for use in whatever means. I just hope I doesn’t hate me for doing this.
