God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31
Some parts of God’s creation are easier to think of as good than others…
Some parts when stumbled upon accidentally just plain give me the creeps. But then, even the creepy critters serve a purpose in the food chain. Either they are eaten or they are the eater. Some are obviously helpful to the gardener. But some seem a bit on the questionable side.
Even lowly slugs can serve a purpose as part of the cleanup crew. But they also can destroy flowers in short order (that was another pun).
Some of the little creatures are given cutesy names: Daddy long-legs.
Then again, some are given a wide berth. Ouch!
Some have even been mentioned in the good book: “Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!” Proverbs 6:6
Have you ever tried to take a picture of an ant? Wow—it’s nearly impossible. They just don’t stop moving…
Some little crawlers come with old wives tales; I’ve never found one of these in my ear—have you?
I think bees and wasps have it made in our garden. They love my greenhouse. It’s organic, and I’m the only one crazy enough to take shots at them; though, only with my camera.
Some plants look more buggy than the bugs. I think some are just plain cute. Well, compared to this guy it was. Don’t you think this little guy is going for gold?
Dragonflies are the knights of the garden. A personal favorite of mine.
But wait – didn’t God say that everything He created was “very good”? Just call me sweet on bugs. Or should I be saying, bug on sweet pea?
