3 month old pine cones

The caption of these same pine cones 3 months ago was: "Nature is patient. It unfolds gradually and beauty can be found in every state."
How true this is as I now see they have only gotten darker in color and have not even started to open up yet.

See this same set of pine cones 3 months before:

They were green when this photo was taken on August 16, 2019.

This photo really captured the shiny texture of the Ladybug's shell, reflective and smooth.

The closer you look, the more you see.

These three photos focus on a set of three pine cones. I took notice of the amazing patterns and interesting shapes as I zoomed in closer, new details emerge.

Nature is patient. It unfolds gradually and beauty can be found in every state.

What's the lesson? Nature is patient. But we humans only tend to appreciate the flower, but not the closed bud that must yet open. Or the green pine cone that is rock solid and tightly closed up. This makes me reflect on self-improvement and making progress towards goals and personal achievements. By imitating nature, patience will help us appreciate the growth we are making, and find beauty in new qualities that are blooming, although they are not yet complete flowers.

Cicada Shell

Creatures must abandon their shells as they grow.

First Cicada exoskeleton found this summer! It is always an impressive sight to find.

Black Wasp Moth

I sat on this bench for a while without noticing this Black Wasp Moth camouflaged in stealth mode!

Japanese Beetle in Flower - with small wasp

This wasp wants to pollinate this flower, but the silly beetle is in his way. I don't know what the Beetle is trying to do, but he is taking the job of the little bee.

Bio

My name's Jon and I play piano and make music on my computer. Having fun as an amateur music hobbyist. I make music using Bandlab software and mix on VirtualDJ. Many of my playlists come from music I discovered and purchased on Bandcamp. I think it's important to support artists by buying their music to show appreciation for their hard work and also get the good quality download to use in mixing. I would like to do some t-shirt prints of my digital math artwork, hopefully in the near future I can get some t-shirts made because the math art would look amazing on black.
