Fly Free, Little Hatchling!

Anyone who regularly visits my blog has figured out by now that I love nature's little wonders...

...which is perfect since the book I am currently illustrating for Soundprints is all about the life of a little black ant.

I can't show you any illustrations for the book yet... I'll continue to post photos from my yard instead.


  1. beautiful pictures!

    best regards

  2. That little one ... off to start his new life. Pretty cool!

  3. Even your photos are charming! I can never get good close-ups like these!

  4. Awww... that book will be right up your alley! I have those same looking pink hibiscus flowers in my backyard and I also have red ones. Those are my favorite flowers!

  5. is that hibiscus? and you know i love that cicada! they are really lovely photos, bravo! when are you getting on flickr?

  6. I enjoy the photos from your yard. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hi Kathleen!

    Your weblog has been nominated for the Brilliante Weblog Premio - 2008Award! I am always amazed and inspired when I visit it! So, I couldn't think of better fellow illustrator to highlight!Email me back for info.Congrats!

    Many blessings,

  8. Princess Pepper Cloud (and her ants) will probably be the first in line to buy your book! I'll be right behind her :)
    Wonderful photos, Kate!

  9. Eeeeeeew! What is that thing in the second picture?!

    If I saw one of those on my leg, I would scream like a little girl, and squash it. Violently.
    * shudder *

  10. you take wonderful photos. and those are some wild looking bugs.

  11. lovely photos kate! i've got those same hibiscus flowers here in new york - and surrounded by phlox!
