Green Porno films are fabulous. I remember an NPR interview with Isabella discussing her inspiration.

Loved this post. We were at the zoo yesterday discussing this exact topic with my 3-year-old daughter. Not as in depth, but still it came up!

(I've also made a sea urchin-inspired crocheted stone from your Purl Bee posting. Love that, too!)

Happy Sunday!

This was a great post. Loved the pictures!

Nature is fascinating. I've only seen one of those green porno clips, I think it was on the whale. I'll have to check them out. Funny.

The card is gorgeous, M. Happy Sunday.

There's always something new to learn from you, Margie! Yesterday, while weeding,I carefully avoided disturbing a large colorful spider sitting on a coneflower. I didn't know about their habits other than their beautiful webs (they appear so quickly on my porch over night!) Now I'll be more observant, thanks to you. Your card is lovely, as is all your work! Enjoy this beautiful day! xoxoxox


I can see your new camera is hard at work! Beautiful pictures...
And I love the card.


She is the most beautiful spider and the card is just amazing.
I don't think we have those lovely spiders in our area.

oh you are brave! I got the creeps just reading this. It's great though, that you don't get scared and you capture these impressive images. That card is fantastic!


This is the first time I have come across your blog (reached through Perl Bee) and although I have an intense dislike of spiders (comes from growing up Australia with the very large and scary Huntsmen plus a range of poisonous spiders), I also find their lives fascinating. I also wanted to share an amazing experience I had yesterday in the garden. I was bending over weeding and a tiny hummingbird flew right up to me and just hovered a few centimetres away from my face. It flew away to a nearby bush, had some tasty nectar and then came back to hover again by my face...it was the most amazing experience, it was quite fearless. I love these tiny delicate creatures. It was one of the most wonderful experiences.


I've noticed this dimorphism, more particularly with birds. The card is really out of this world, I swear. The most beautiful web I have ever seen !
I hope you had a great weekend, my friend xoxo

Lovely World

How interesting! I love Isabella Rossellini and the quote here. Your card is beautiful - a window onto the world.

When you are skinning your customers, you should leave some skin on to grow so that you can skin them again.


this is such a great post, margie. i love isabella rossellini and will look up her film. it sounds amazing! i love your spider photos- i've never seen anything like them before.

(p.s. like your commenter above, i am having to work hard to not get creeped out by spiders, down here at the bottom of the world we have some fairly dangerous ones...)


I love closeup looks at nature. Always so fascinating. Thanks for taking the time to show us. Mary Ellen
