Survival


I took a group of visitors on a fossil walk today and we got side tracked watching a struggle for survival. Rather amazing how much smaller the spider is than the bug. They both wanted to hang on to life. But the spider won.

Really excelent Gaelyn!! Now I ask the question: "Does size matter?". When it comes to survival, even the smallest thing will find a way to survive. It must have been extremely interesting to watch and I hope your guests were suitably impressed that you found it for them to see.

Now you know why I am so interested in this small world we life with and so seldom notice.

Ugh! You see, that's the trouble. I do so want to tag along with you on your amazing travels...sleeping bag and groundsheet all ready to go, but...I can't even look at a spider, and there are so many, not to mention all the other bugs...so Gaelyn, I'm sorry, am going to have to cancel...but I will keep travelling with you in blogland.
I only took a peek but I bet it is a great picture.
