True :) Is great to have wild plants and animals at hand, and some natural places to walk around and explore ... all this emanates plenty of good vibrations.

I often say that for observers, nature gives us beautiful things for the eyes, which stimulate the soul. enjoy your surroundings very much dear friend

Lovely photos of nature under the warm sunshine. It’s so nice that you could find food in the fields!

Some insects are just too good in disguising as leaves! LoL

:) True, some insects look more like plants than the plants themselves.

हमेशा की तरह लाजवाब फोटोज़ 👌👌👌

धन्यवाद :)

Amazing captures of insects and plants.

Thanks :)
