Capture - IF


(click image to enlarge)


As a child, barefoot in the setting summer sun, I spent hours upon hours running around the backyard capturing fireflies. I remember finding jars and having my mother punch holes in the top so I could collect them. Little did I know that bugs don't last very long that way.

You even have the little holes on the jar lid. I'm sure many children would never think of punching holes for air, unless an adult suggests it. :) Nice!

I have a mealworm in a container that belongs to my son. It's for school project. He will check on its tranformation every once in a while to see it changes from a pupa to a beetle. Isn't it an exciting experience?

I like this, it's simple and it's cute.. nice colours. I think I have only ever seen fireflies once in my whole life. Even then, I don't know, maybe I made it up :D
