Being Found

Zac and I were looking for salamanders at the refuge a couple days ago. Our efforts resulted in zero 'manders but when a decaying piece of wood broke open, there was a fancy little world inside...(also, I turned 30, thirty...today. Slowly accepting this...yikes) Weekend Reflections Scenic Sunday Weekend in Black and White

Well if you plan on living to 100 you aren't even 1/3 of the way.Happy B-day.A little late to find salamanders isn;t it, or were you looking for some hibernating.Don't see them as much, used to find lots of tigers when I was a kid.

Carver said...

I love this shot. You captured the world inside so well.

Happy Birthday to you. It's funny but 30 hit me a lot harder than 50. I turned 53 on veteran's day and I can honestly say that the birthdays have gotten easier. 30 is definitely a milestone and I hope this will be a great year for you.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Well, bonne anniversaire! A very happy 30th to you!

Love this peek into nature with a close-up perspective!

Tricia said...

That's a really cool shot/find!

Happy Birthday! I had a hard time w/ 30, but 40 wasn't near as bad - I don't know why

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Cool macro. And happy birthday.

@nemonen said...

Wow that´s cool! Happy birthday to you.

Springman said...

I love the inner world and yours is an intriguing image of it. 30 is a good time for a little crisis of purpose and reordering of priorities. It is good energy!

The Giraffe Head Tree said...

Don't you just love surprises like that? This is great - thanks!

Irene said...

Awesome shot! Hope you had a great birthday!
