Sunday, 24 June 2007 - Natural wonders

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for natural wonders.

With six small diamonds for his eyes
He walks upon the summer skies,

Drawing from his silken blouse

The lacework of his dwelling house.

~Robert P. Tristram Coffin, The Spider

Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me.

This time, while examining one of the privets, I discover a spider who's adapted quite well to its environment.

Two green "petals" encase its body like shields, creating a perfect camouflage. To its unassuming victims, the spider is a privet leaf bud.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
