Not on the prowl as much this year so made an effort to cover some familiar territory around Punta Uva before next year arrives.
Every year I take a picture of an egret at this spot in front Cabinas Punta Uva and wonder if it may the same bird or a member of his family who has inherited this prime hunting real estate.
I am always impressed with unusual relationships of leaves and plants and their organisation on a canvas of earth.From this plain old Pod comes forth a most elegant bloom which is reaching out in subtle glory to all takers. So many varieties of orchid speak to their survival in blazing color and delicate shape.
This is Bette Middler of the orchid chorus.
Here is a wireworm sampling this fungus getting all his strength to get under my door and position himself immediately under my slipper so that during one of my evening sojourns to the lieu I will hear the familiar cracking as in popping popcorn. My imagination runs wild before sliding onto the floor in my bare feet and imagining what might surprise me with my next step.
At last off to the party, rain and all. They start their parties at 11 and they go to 4. Off and into 2015. Happy New Year.
