Oh I love Lao Tzu! I did a major paper on him during my undergrad years as a history major.

Interesting and effective pairing with the photo. Great shadow shot!

We so tend to loath the fly, but the quote makes it all seem so natural and pure...alive!

isn't it interesting how something as gross as a fly can also be fabulous when seen in a different perspective? the light filtered through the wings is wonderful!!

happy sweetie's day, sweetie-pie! :)

Excellent shot and quote.

OK, I'm finding the shot beautiful (FABULOUS shadow!), and I can appreciate the intricacy of fly anatomy here.

The quote is wonderful.

Wow! Now, THAT is an amazing shot! I tried to take a picture of a fly eating another fly one time, but my macro was acting like an asshole and wouldn't cooperate because it was behind my computer desk and therefore too dark. Love your shot and the quote!
