Picture from today's morning - last dance of spider and butterfly. I was going to write a note, but...I couldn't resist - just an old song by Thompson Twins :-)


Thompson Twins - Hold Me Now

I have a picture,
pinned to my wall.
An image of you and of me and we're laughing and loving it all.
Look at our life now, tattered and torn.
We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears that we cry until dawn

Hold me now, warm my heart
stay with me, let loving start (let loving start)

You say I'm a dreamer, we're two of a kind
Both of us searching for some perfect world we know we'll never find
So perhaps I should leave here, yeah yeah go far away
But you know that theres no where that I'd rather be than with you here


You ask if I love you, well what can I say?
You know that I do and if this is just one of those games that we play
So I'll sing you a new song, please don't cry anymore
and then I'll ask your forgiveness, though I don't know just what I'm
asking it for

Hola Grzegorz.
Fotografia muy especial por su contenido. La ley de la vida en una imagen de gran calidad y nitidez.
PS I would like to listen the song.
Saludos My friend.

Hi Grzegorz,

Definitely a dramatic picture, the image speaks of nature and its laws. Congratulations for the picture of the structure and composition that you know manage to enclose all the elements in the set.

Witaj Grzegorzu,
Makabryczna scena w mikroswiecie. Aby zauwazyc takie widoki nie wystarzy tylko patrzec ale dokladnie obserwowac. Bardzo dokladne ustawienie ostrosci na dosc maly obiekt.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel

dramatic moment for the little butterfly
and nice and refreshing songs of the past with thompson twins

best regards sERGIO

Hello Greg,
A very fine macro of this Spider with its prey. Great sharpness and colours and I like the acccompanying song!!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Hi Grzegorz,
dramatic capture of a tiny spider's overpowering bite, holding its paralyzed victim with incredible vigour.
I had to look twice to find out what the spider is clinging to.
Thank you!
With best regards,

Czesc Grzeg,
Bombastic shot, which again shows Your unbelievable talent for macro photography. Everything's fantastic from sharpness to DOF, and the drama's definitely there... Professional photo. Bravo.
Best wishes, Wladyslaw :)
