"Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step."
~ Lao Tzu
It's a wide, wide world out there and a thin shell doesn't do much for protection... but this beetle set off, alone on his way into the world..one step at a time. This little insect kept on going and going and going and after a half hour, he had walked the entire distance from the patio near the door of our house to the yard. On the patio, the beetle stood out from the background... openly at risk to be the next visiting bird's supper; but, in the yard, he blends with the grass, more protected... Perhaps a birds-eyed view could still find him in the grass... but, I couldn't.
This shot also represents persistence with purpose, something we can all use more of in life.
Carmi's photo theme for this week is "single".
