Feeding Frenzy

Feeding Frenzy

Greetings, everyone!  I’ve been out of the picture for a while, but wanted to drop in to let you know I miss visiting you all, and that I appreciated very much the comments you left for me on my last few posts (to which–forgive me–I still haven’t had a chance to reply).

I stopped over to see my Clematis today. It is looking rather ragged, all tangled and snow drenched.  At this time of year, it often reminds me of a frothy sea roiling with ravenous alien, fish-like creatures that slither and squirm to suck for sustenance.  Which one will make off with the kill?

    • Thank you, Carissa. I’m not sure if I’m back or not… 🙂 I just can’t seem to keep up!! But something compels me to keep trying. Thank you for dropping in. I appreciate it.

  2. I started paying closer attention to the wild clematis this year. I never knew they hung onto their seeds for so long.

    • They are fascinating to watch. They transform in such interesting ways. They’re very hardy, too: I am amazed at what they endure.

  3. To me it also looked like a Hermit Club who lost a hermit shell 🙂

  4. Perfectly titled. It does look like a feeding frenzy! Some kind of creatures on ice. I’m developing the feared Clematis Phobia…

    • The feeding frenzies in the Clematis can be even more dramatic in black and white. It’s fun to play around with the processing with these creatures. I don’t even really see Clematis at all, I don’t think. The vine has become quite another thing all together in my head. 🙂

  7. On the other hand, maybe they’re doing a very hopeful, premature maypole dance…
