It keeps getting better. No matter what!!

That's right. No matter how much we abuse and exploit it, Nature keeps getting better, however steep the climb gets for it, to keep it and us happy and satisfied. Most times, it bargains its loses its part of the deal in keeping us(humans) happy and satisfied. 

I thought I'd share a few photographs I've clicked in the recent past. So here they are :D

A common Dragonfly!

The Blue print for the Helicopter! Nature indeed is the base for every invention. Makes me challenge if inventions are really inventions or are they simply discoveries? Man discovered nature’s idea? Eh?

A 7 foot ant-hill in the jungle with the sunset on the backdrop:)
Who'd believe that anthills like these are engineering marvels, paved with roads, levels of occupancy and chambers, all built by a colony of ants. This 7 foot anthill totally dominated the 6 foot me! The serenity in the jungle sets just as fast as the sun does on the horizon, through the trees. A spectacular feeling to be there!

Another pic of the sun setting through the trees.
Those who have known me for a while would know I love taking pictures of sunrise and sunsets. To me, it's almost like nature's inviting me to capture it when it is at its brilliant self. The orange in the skies, the yellowish, yet red ball of fire speeds down the horizon at an amazing pace. The trees help me save the sun from a guilty conscience of taking all the credits to itself :D.

Dude! What're you doing under the chair?:O
Or was it checking out my rear? I would never know it for sure :( *sigh!*... This tough guy refused to budge. I placed my finger right next to it- it touched my finger and moved back. I tried touching it but he/she was rock steady! I managed to find a twig and it clumsily climbed on to it and was so damn happy! I think I also saw him/her wink ;)!! Oh those huge eyes. Ones to die for :D

Yaayyyy. Finally home \m/
It kept its eyes fixed on me while I took him(lets just call it a him! :P) to the money plant, outside. I don't quite know what it was- may be the greenery or the fresh air. He did a jhinga-lala-hoo(a tribal dance.. ask me!) with both his front legs up! He quickly latched on to the leaf and he seemed like he was never this happy! Aaah so much for "Nature's perfect killing machine"!! I saved him from a probable fart-bomb! :D. So, does that make me nature's perfect killing machine's saviour? :O.. Woaah \m/.. Wee weeeel weee weeeel raaak u!! \m/

Hey Whitey! Wassup there!
Nature truly doesn't care if you're black or white. All it needs some blah blah talk and something to bite!(oooh, a rhyme!:P). Soon, after this pic, the two of of them cuddled up. I so wish my camera battery hadn't died right then :|. 

           We should do anything we can do, if we want to keep seeing such wonderful sights. Abuse nature and it will sooner or later make you pay for it. You don't have to be selfish with nature. It gives you everything you want! It gives us everything in excess. Yet, we exploit it. :(.. Humans truly are the most thankless and selfish breed on this planet.

There's just one way to save nature. Relish, protect and know it more, before it is no more!

Yo there, nature! If you're looking at this blog and not discussing in a "Oh those humans! They're a thankless breed " thread, I must Thank you for making me feel special, lucky and at peace whenever I am amongst your presence :).
