I’m not sure what ate these leaves, but the cutouts are astonishingly perfect!

When I took this picture, I thought that I must’ve gotten a one-in-a-million shot. Turns out, bees often hang from these flowers. One year later, I got an almost identical shot from the same flower bush.

I spent three nights trying to photograph this caterpillar. He disappeared every morning and reappeared each night on whichever leaf he was eating the night before. I don’t know what species he belongs to, but he’s got a wild fashion sense. Fake black antenna (or eyestalks?), fluffy tail, and a row of white poof balls.

Fancy

I finally got this picture by laying on my back on the stairs and aiming a headlamp at the adjacent leaves while trying to get the zoom just right. It was worth it.

Series – The Exo-Explorers – Issue 001

“Sweet stratigraphy!” Reginole Tokage exclaimed.

The two-foot-tall dinosaur-like creature studied the screen of a small device in his right hand as he waved it back and forth over the ground. Dark shapes panned across the screen accompanied by a multitude of readouts. Physical dimensions, material compositions, computations, and simulations poured into Reginole’s photographic memory. He didn’t need a memory bank. He was a memory bank.

Reginole stood still and waited for the device to finish compiling the data. It dinged loudly as if to say “popcorn’s ready”. He spoke out loud as he tapped in commands.

“Area: 4,000 square meters… 50 meters by 80 meters… depth: 20 meters. Add some stairs…”

Reginole reached into one of his many vest pockets, retrieved a small metallic cube and tossed it on the ground. His long whip of a tail stood out stiffly behind him as he scurried away across the sunbaked earth.

After reaching a safe distance, the lizard punched in a few final commands and tapped the side of his goggles. The round, hyper crystal lenses zoomed in on the cube.

“Execute!” Reginole shouted, stuffing the device into a vest pocket.

Blog – Writing Roadblocks

Hello Readers, Writers, Teachers, and Children! Like every writer, I suffer from a number of problems that threaten to strangle my creativity. Some I’ve learned how to deal with, others continue to plague me. That got me thinking.

Here, we have an almost endless community of writers. We don’t all have all the same problems, but we all have some of the same problems, and, no doubt, we all have different solutions to different problems. So, why not connect those with problems to those with solutions?

In this series, we will be exploring both common and complex issues that prevent us from being the most creative, most excited, most successful writers that we can be. I invite you to leave your problems, solutions, and grievances in the comments below. With each post, we will discuss a different writing roadblock and how we can plow through it.

Let’s get to work and keep that love of writing burning bright!
