Macro p

hoto I shot of trash I found.

Whatever it may be, it looks different when looked up close — and still it remains the same.

Check out my ebook Till Stars Shut Their Eyes.

Mexican caterpillar

Mobile photo I shot at Mexico City of a Mexican caterpillar.

Locally called azotador, because if touched it can hurt you by leaving a burned irritated skin.

Since ancient times this little critter was famous for its spiky appearance, known in Nahuatl (or Mexican language) as Chinahuate (Chignahuate), Huahuatl or Ahuate.

Nowadays, people in Mexico with thick eyebrows are called Azotador Eyebrows, an expression that also comes from Nahuatl language.


If you like Mexican languages and native stories you will enjoy my novel, Till Stars Shut Their Eyes.

Bee on a flower.

Photo I shot of a gorgeous model I found in a lake in northwestern Mexico City metro area.

Not only are bees pretty, but of paramount importance for the balance of the planet’s ecosystem (and not because Doctor Who says so, by the way).

Illustrator Brooke Barker suggests in a joking way that if a bee is to be paid minimum wage, a jar of honey would cost $ 182,000! These little friends are so important!
