Daddy Longlegs

Yesterday was just not a good day.  Our dog, James, got loose again and was missing for almost 5 hours.  Then while I was out looking for the dog, my cat, Sadie, managed to open the storm door and got loose.  She took off like the devil was after her when she saw me.  She still hasn’t reappeared.  Anyway….while I was out looking for the wayward dog I came across this fella.  It is a daddy longlegs spider, who was gracious enough to pose for me.

Snapped this picture of a dragonfly.  I think their wings being partly transparent is amazing,

Monarch Butterfly

This gorgeous butterfly was flitting around our front yard yesterday.  Took me a while to get good pictures because it was so hot and humid my camera fogged up the second I took it outside.

Infested

There are so many cicadas this year…..it’s kind of creepy.  Not to mention they are making a LOT of noise.

My What Big Red Eyes You Have

We have a LOT of cicada’s this year. Found this one on the bird bath. Thank God for a zoom lens on the camera.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
