Thoreau Book of Days: Searching for the sweets of nature
The scenery, when it is truly seen, reacts on the life of the seer. How to live. How to get the most life. As if you were to teach the young hunter how to entrap his game. How to extract its honey from the flower of the world. That is my every-day business... I am like a bee searching the livelong day for the sweets of nature. (Journal of Henry David Thoreau, September 7, 1851)
Just a simple scene, capturing one perfect moment. An immaculate white flower, the bumblebee poised just so, and in the background - do you see it? - one very small ladybug.
