Alien in the Web

I had visited Brisbane earlier this year. Everyday Uma, my niece, and I used to walk to the nearby Metro Station. One day we saw a passion fruit tree in the kitchen garden of a house on our way. It was such fun to be able to see the bud, the flower and the fruit on the same tree!! There is no end to the beauty and the wonders of nature! Another day we saw a small mango tree with rather big mangoes for its size!!

But the best experience was watching a spider web just outside our house. Both of us were admiring the spider and realized we were not looking at the same spider!! There was one at the top of the web and it was beautiful! Nothing like the spiders I have seen in India! But most amazing was the one, almost at the bottom of the web. It was a small thing (I still refuse to call it a spider!); not more than 1 cm tall! It had 4 limbs and a face and eyes!! I asked Uma couldn’t it be an alien? Some life form from some other dimension, from the outer space? She laughed it out πŸ˜‚ Naturally πŸ˜‡ But I still wonder?? I tried my best to take pictures of the web with the alien and the beautiful spider but couldn’t succeed. Was it due to insufficient light and limitation of my mobile camera or the alien web of secrecy?

  1. I love seeing nature and the beauty if provides in growth. The spider and other creature sounded interesting. I love spiders. They fascinate me to no end. I find them beautiful and amazing arachnids. Many people hate or fear them, some understandably others not so much. We should appreciate them. Take the time to see them for what they really are and what they provide us. Thank you for another one Ashok.

  2. Hahaha…I’m sure it was because of the ‘alien web of secrecy’ … You’re getting more and more creative with your writings. Loved reading. Thanks for bringing smile early in the dayβ˜ΊοΈπŸ™

  3. The Spider
    The Spider – is one of the 24 gurus of Dattareya. The spider reminded Datta of Lord Brahma, the Creator. The spider weaves a web made from its own saliva and when the job is done, it is said that the spider takes the web back into itself. The spider also teaches one to be self reliant and know how much to give out and how much to receive. It is a living proof (like human beings), that there is an Ultimate Reality both in manifested and unmanifested form.

  8. You describe this moment so beautifully. I also love watching the intricate spider webs,
    especially early mornings whilst the dew still make the strands glitter.
    The alien web of secrecy though, that is a new story. Shame we can’t see this alien.

    I was so sure it was an alien πŸ˜‚
    We don’t grow passion fruit in India 😌

  13. Ah Passion Fruit something to be savored especially on a hot day in a drink or dessert.

    As for the spiders not so keen and many of the most dangerous spiders in Australia are tiny. Marvelous way to start the day. Nature has its own temple of love.

  14. Wondrous beauty lies in ur eyes uncle…u can take a note of smallest of the things of mother nature with such a thoughtfulness…πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Š

  15. If it was really an alien? I was thinking for what it should have came here on the earth? Reason may be passion fruit🀣 or what you think πŸ€”.. I adore your observation and interest in the smallest things..

  16. The photos are stunning, and I like your analysis of the spider. Those secretive aliens have been found out! πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

  17. Passion fruits are quite something. Their flavour is so unique and can linger on… It’s so wonderful that you could find beauty in these simple things. Knowing you though, it’s not surprising πŸ™‚
