A Bug’s Life

It’s a bug-eat-bug world out there, princess. This is the way things are supposed to work:
The sun grows the food, the ants pick the food, the grasshoppers eat the food…

– Hopper ~~ “A Bug’s Life”

God in His wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.

– Ogden Nash ~~~”The Fly”

Some days you’re the bug,
Some days you’re the windshield.

– Price Cobb

I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico
Hahahaha… what did you expect, a quote on the Gecko?. To those who still did not get the joke, GEICO is an auto insurance company here in the US and that statement is the butt of all their funny commercials. The green gecko is their official mascot.

What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls…a butterfly
-Richard Bach

    I admit looking at your online phots is as pleasing to the eye as looking at my favorite magazine “Natonal Geographic” You photos are so intensely beautiful. These are wonderful and I dont even like bugs… ;o)

    Wow! This is nature in all its glory. Just proves that everything God made is beautiful, but sometimes we fail to recognise that. Amazing colors and awesome shots.

    funny quotes, Ari. 🙂 loved the bold green, blue, and orange colors as well as the critters and environments you captured!

    When we got our first DVD player, years ago, one of the free DVD’s that came with it was, A Bug’s Life. 🙂

    I love love love this post and the quotes that go along with the photos. So interesting! I’m curious what kind of bug is in the third photo with the freaky pinchers. Where were these taken? Amazing you were able to capture the fly…

    Hope all is well!

    Gorgeous pics, bro, though you know my history with bugs ! ( remember the time, when this BIIIG fat bug flew into our room at 1 in the night, and i brought the roof down ? hehe ) where were these pics taken ? *hugs*

    P.S: i really like the movie “A Bug’s Life”; thanks for the DVD 🙂 you must watch Ant Bully; it’s sorta similar and a nice watch
