He keeps silent, like a deaf pig in the wheat-field.

if like me, piggy thinks these things look like stoneflies maybe he’ll lose his appetite and get his hearing back…

A month from a skylark, a half from a finch, a little from a wagtail and not a day from a swallow.

(Finnish proverb)

White wagtail – Canal du Midi, France

 

you just keep me hangin’ on

this image’s title was as you might guess, influenced by the song that popped into my mind when i found this spider web trapped mayfly. unconscious associations: i’ve long ago abandoned the idea of trying to figure them out.
just as a gratuitous smile from a total stranger in the street, they’re just there and they’re appreciated.
