Size Small - Thematic Photography

Every now and Carmi sets us a theme on which I can't wait to get started.

Nature gives us many small sized creatures including those not for arachnophobes.

Its shadow would be enough for me
So here's something much more appealing,

Young rabbit
This year I have been fortunate enough to come across this in a Cornish wood.

Comma butterfly on a bramble leaf
Now that autumn has begun there are some small sized creatures that look for somewhere warmer.

Garden snail inside our tool store
I guess small boys qualify for this theme too.

All alone, dribbling down the touchline, oblivious to his surroundings
Sometimes I find cup-shaped items in surprising places.

Discarded contact lenses
Perhaps it would be better to be wearing them when trying to assemble the fob for our garage door.

Especially for the damned small size

For creatures and objects great to see but small in size follow the links at Thematic-Photographic-353,

What a great place to wander such a lovely field of green! Lucky you on capturing a live snail too! Viewing your size small stuff was largely wonderful!

I'm in that arachnophobe group; I don't like your spider, but I appreciate the great shot you took of it. The butterfly's lovely too.

I especially like the boy-on-his-own photo. To me,it effectively conveys the joy of solitude.

Wow, excellent variety of "small" things! Congrats!

Love your take on "small"! The shadow of the spider is far more threatening than the actual spider! Lovely Comma - we haven't seen any this year. :(

It's a cool wall spider, Bob.

Good thing we're much bigger than they are, isn't it?

Love the snail, Daddy!

Beautiful photos, Bob. I have never seen a spider like the one in your photo, and I have always loved snails. I think they represent nature at its best...slow, steady, but they get things done, not needing to stress or hurry. :)
