A gift for the spider

Raindrops caught on  a cobweb on the Weasel's balcony

Germany, Oktober 2014

The night left the spider a little present, before it ran away, chased by the daylight. It carefully installed little prefect round diamonds on the cobwebs. The sun fell in love with them and caressed them with its rays fascinated by their shine. But I guess it was too much for them diamonds, as they disappeared, evaporated, very fast.

The Crows

In the afternoon, the crows found a field filled with rests from the crops. They had a plentiful dinner and it did them good, having to face a cold winter night.

The distance from her place until the birds’ feeder was long enough, and by the time she would get there, all the birdies would have flown away.

So she came up with a really cunning plan: to hide in the birds’ house and stay still. When the birdies will come, as usual, to eat, she would just have to snatch them with the paw and feast on them.

Ice cold mirror

Winter decided to reveal us a bit of its splendor, and covered the nature with a thin layer of snow, sparkling in the sun like diamond dust. It transformed the lake in a frozen, motionless mirror. The trees leaned over it admiring themselves and how good the white on their branches fits them.
