Weird Weather

This winter has been so warm.  Yesterday it got up to 60 degrees.  I happened to have the day off, so Lucy and I decided we needed to take advantage of the warm weather.

We weren’t the only ones that thought it was a good day to be out and about.

Hiding in Plain Sight

We went to Glen’s mothers house yesterday evening and this fella was sitting on her front porch light.  Guess he was waiting for night to fall so he could partake in bugstravaganza.

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.

See Through

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


Sticky Feet

Cute little tree frog that decided our living room window was the perfect place to hunt for bugs.


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.




Under Construction

Discovered the other night that we have some paper wasps building a nest above our front door.


Red Admiral

The pictures aren’t that great.  The butterfly was outside on the window and I was inside in the air conditioning :-/




Can you see me?

This is one well camouflaged grasshopper.



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

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
