and fade back into my giant, human status, only then do I realize
how small the world is that I just entered, and at the same time,
how much larger it now feels to know so much life exists in that realm."

This green lacewing was incredibly camouflaged against the green leaf. The wings were translucent with a slight iridescence and green wing veins. The only distinguishing feature it had, making it stand out a tiny bit from the leaf, yet only the size of the head of a pin, were the black and gold colored eyes. It would be so easy to never see this bug unless, like me, you were searching for insects to photograph. It was no bigger than one half inch.
