Daredevil’s Weed

The Upside to the Downside

When I was a child, I used to like lying on my bed, flat on my back, with my head draped over the side, in order to study the world upside down. From that upside down angle, old things become newly evident, and structures and connections become so clear, only to blur back to vague impressions when the viewer rights herself. A new perspective is always refreshing, and the increased blood flow to the brain helps rejuvenate one’s senses. This Ladybird Beetle seems nonplussed by the benefits. Perhaps being upside down is nothing compared to flying!

Please come back tomorrow for a new “Weed Image of the Day” and let me know which ones you like.

We and our weeds are so much more than what we first appear to be.

  1. I just love this. A beautiful and delicate scene. (And I think the little hairs on those leaves are so pretty!)

    Thank you, Sarah, so very much! I love those hairs as well. They are very inviting when the weed is green, but oh so clingy when the weed turns brown. Tricky weeds!
