The Weekly Photo Challenges: Victory

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Victory.”

There are a lot of Victories in our personal lives, in lives of our families, friends and pets.

Years back I kept some rare bugs and though this should be a post about my Victory, for me and most important for these bugs it was always a Victory when they could successfully slough off their skin. It is very important for them, to may grow and developing, same as the snakes. Maybe you will say “it is only an ugly bug – a monster”.

Well, people they keep bugs as pets and especially rare ones can understand it. I saw few of them when they couldn’t hang properly on the branch or cage and they couldn’t slough off their skin. They suffered and died. Or they could slough off their skin but not properly and lost a leg.

I am a nature lover and for me it was always a Victory when these bugs could “change their coat” properly and it didn’t change their attitude

Can we humans follow them?

  1. That is beautiful, and an interesting post!

  2. I used to keep praying mantises as pets. They did very well!

    Most people are too afraid to let go of their old skin; they (mostly) cling to the dead past (and never really grow)!

    • Thanks, Tom! Yes I agree with you and I am glad for this prompt, it could be used by different points of view. I loved these bugs, one of them Goliath used to walk on my keyboard while I wrote some stuff and these bugs are very calm and don’t hurt anybody. Have a peaceful evening!

  3. Insects get a bum rap, don’t they? Yours are beautiful, and a great job capturing their renewal of body, if not mind. Very cool!
