In nature, as in life, it’s often possible to overlook the smaller moments and events that make up the fabric of our environment. While a hunting Eagle or rutting Deer will grab the attention of most of us, have you ever stopped to watch Aphids feeding or a trail of Ants patrolling down a forest track? It’s a pastime worth pursuing as those smaller creatures are usually to be found playing out the same life stories as almost every other living inhabitant of this planet.

Nice photograph. I am one of those folk who do look at the smaller beings and am often thought weird for doing so. People can't see what I am looking at and assume I am being odd.

Very true Adam. We often overlook the things right in front of us.
