Among Nature’s Chaos

Back in June I was finding tiny grasshoppers among the chaos of grass stems. I remember that joyful feeling of walking along and seeing tiny creatures springing about, then getting down close to the ground and seeing so many tiny hoppers peeking out at me from various stems.




More recently I’ve enjoyed photographing the chaos of ferns where you rarely find a lone frond with a quiet background. It’s mostly fern on fern on fern, with various other stalks and trees thrown in. But if you can get the focus right you can draw out one frond and bring a little order to the chaos.



I love catching the light shining through the fronds.


Back in the summer I noticed this one lone flower on the Frogbit in my pond. Otherwise it was just a chaos of little mini lily pads, but this one flower stood out among the chaos.


And finally, a chaotic scene of scabious flowers, and in the middle of the chaos the age-old story plays out of continuing the species.

  1. Brilliantly shot macros all round. The grasshopper looked lonely, maybe it wanted a friend and so was happy to pose for you 😀 Great timing on that last shot. Very, very, very well done and amazing how the flying butterfly was so much in focus 🙂
