Today's photo is from a trip a fews months ago to the Juniper Level Botanical Garden in Raleigh. The plants and flowers were kind of overwhelming. It's a target-rich environment. After shooting plants and landscapes for awhile, I whipped out the macro lens to change things up. And that made me aware that there were insects everywhere. Other than a few buzzing around my face, I hadn't really noticed before. These little bugs were just as unaware of me as I was of them. That made me start to think about what must be going on at the microscopic and cosmic levels at that moment in time. And I realized just how blind life is to all the other life going on around it. We're all like these little bugs crawling around on the stigma of a flower, fixated on our own problems and ambitions, mostly oblivious to all the other living things doing essentially the same thing.
