Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

These are art images of nature spirits I discovered when I made a composite of wild fennel stalks in which I reversed a photo and juxtaposed it to the original photo.

The first nine photos show individual nature spirits or little groups of nature spirits. After that is are two composite images of four photos side by side.

In the first series, the second and third photos are markups of the first, showing the first and second nature spirits from the bottom (which are brownies).

The third nature spirit is a brownie chieftain. The fourth is a gnome. Above that is an imp with pointed ears. Above that is a nature spirit that is wearing a hooded cloak and has made its face invisible.

Above that is a big nature spirit, an elf, with large eyebrows and fine, long antennae. Above it is a very grand Lord of the Elves.

There is a photo of all the nature spirits, one above the other. After that is a markup with numbers by each nature spirit.

The next to the last photo is a composite of four individual images, side by side. After that is a markup outlining the second, third, fourth, fifth, seventh, and eighth nature spirits.

Of course, nature spirits can change their appearance as they will, or, as is often the case, they may choose to conceal themselves from our view, so the images below are only a few of the apparitions they may present to us.
