Can you see the creatures in this painting?

Dr Abe V Rotor 
Living Wall  in acrylic by AVR 2015

Where are the butterflies fluttering, midges hovering,
honeybees in their daily chore,
  mantises stalking for prey, ants scurrying,
carrying goods to their store?  

Where are the birds chirping, crickets fiddling, 
calling the members of their kind,
millipedes moving like train, snails gliding,  
camouflaged and hard to find?

You can't see them in this composite painting;  
only through imagination
do they exist - the art of make-believe working   
in the artist's solemn bastion. ~
