Life Lessons From An Angel's Trumpet:
So pretty to look at
Such a heady scent.
A touch feels like velvet,
Whispering comfort and bliss.
Crush the flowers,
Add water, mix and swallow.
Savouring the flavours
The heart starts beating faster.
Drinking it all in,
Eyes begin blurring with visions.
All these different sensations,
Usher a different energy in:
Enter Hallucinations & Tachycardia,
A total loss of all the senses.
The Lesson's been learnt,
Pray it's too late:
This One, blossoming beauty
Brings ignorant Seekers,
To a possibly fatal end. . 🌸😇😈🌸 #lessonsfromnature#knowledgeispower#beautifulbutdeadly#angelstrumpet#poety#instapoem#inspiredbynature
The flower of my Venus Fly Trap. Perhaps the most ironic of nature's creations: enticing insects to pollinate them, only to have the flower's offspring feed on the pollinator's offspring. 😍😱 #mindblown#beautifulbutdeadly
This is the profile of a serial killer. The lionfish (Pterois volitans), a.k.a "beautiful but lethal", is a fish native to the Indo-Pacific that has invaded the waters of the Atlantic and Caribbean, causing havoc throughout the entire marine ecosystem of these areas.

Coffee and a stroll with one of my faves today - before our lives (mostly hers) become crazy hectic 😬 and we got to see these beauties!.. and judge parents for allowing their kids to get close #blackswan#beautifulbutdeadly
Isn’t nature bloody beautiful. I mean, growing up, I rarely even went outside, I didn’t appreciate bird song, the changing of the seasons, a leaf turning golden; I pretty much locked myself inside and drew. I mean, not a lot has changed as an adult but now I make a conscious effort to learn as much as I can about nature and how beautiful our surroundings really are. Did you know that Hydrangea root can be used to treat a UTI, amongst other things? Yep. Learn something new every day. They’re also toxic to dogs, cats and horses so keep your babies away from them if they’re like mine and like to eat everything off the ground. .
Sky high, in better times
When love was hard to find
Sky high, in better times
With my blind valentine
You keep racing down that hill but you never fall.
That’s the difference baby, between you and me.
That's the difference, baby, between your life and mine.
Monarch Butterflies (Danaus Plexippus) are large, beautifully colored butterflies that are easy to recognize by their striking orange, black, and white markings. The Monarch prefers to feed on the milkweed and nectar from various flowers. Milkweed contains toxins called cardenolides, which do not harm them as young caterpillars and are stored in their tissues. The toxins remain in the butterflies throughout their lives, making them toxic to predators. A Monarch’s brilliant coloring tells predators: “Don’t eat me, I’m poisonous”. 🦋🌸
