Bugs eye view – A vista de bicho

Small, yes but insignificant ? Not at all. Often a bug will grab my attention with a fleeting, fluttering, buzzing or even crawling movement before settling on a flower, tree or stone. As I focus on the minuscule creature, I suddenly become aware of  the interesting compositions, colors, texture and forms of flowers, stones, blades of grass, drops of dew (or the bug themselves) that would have escaped my notice from my usual perspective.  Like that movie “Honey I’ve shrunk the kids” a change of scale brings a change of perspective that almost transports me to a parallel world. Want to discover an amazing new world without leaving home… follow a bug.

Pequeño sí ¿pero insignificante? ¡en absoluto! A menudo un bicho me llama la atención con un movimiento fugaz, un aleteo, un zumbido o incluso arrastrándose antes de posar en una flor, un árbol o una piedra. Al enfocar la vista en esta minúscula criatura, de repente descubro interesantes composiciones, colores, texturas y formas de flores, piedras, hojas de césped, gotas de rocio (o del propio bicho en si), cosas que habrían escapado mi atención con mi perspectiva normal. Como en esa película de “Cariño he encogido a los niños”, el cambio de escala produce un cambio de perspectiva que casi me transporta a un mundo paralelo. ¿Quieres descubrir un mundo alucinante sin salir de casa?…sigue un bicho.
