I created this image in 2014. My idea was to create a photo that showed that a seemingly endless number of toxic cigarette butts are tossed onto the ground as litter. To do that, I placed 1375 cigarette butts in a straight line on a sidewalk near my home. It worked!
I saw the most amazing thing through my kitchen window this afternoon. I’m used to seeing spider webs close to the window, but today I noticed that there was a bee next to the spider. As I watched, the spider started turning the trapped bee over and over again, wrapping it’s silk filament around the bee with every turn.
Once the bee was encased in the silk, the spider started pulling the bee upwards. Within a minute it moved from the middle of the plate glass window to a point where it was out of my sight.
This evening, I discovered that Cee’s Black and White challenge for this week is “Looking Through a Window.” I love the synchronicity.
When I returned home the other day, I noticed a glob of black on my house, just above the dying dahlias. It was about 8 feet from the ground. I couldn’t imagine what it was.
As I walked closer, it became obvious.
I’ve never seen a snail 8 feet up the side of a house before!
These photos were taken near a river in Greenwater, Washington. That town is close to Crystal Mountain.
