Alert Level Orange

Driving home after work I usually see this herd of deer in a field not far off the road.  As things go I either don’t have my camera or traffic is too busy to stop.  I got luck about 2 weeks ago.  Camera was ready and no traffic.

As soon as I pulled over the adult deers were on high alert, a level Orange based on the Homeland Security System.  They posed long enough for me to get a couple of quick shots and then they were gone.

Just a Bit of Attitude

I do not know why but I have a thing for bugs, insects and such.  My grandson Arai is aware of this so when every he sees a bug he calls me to take pictures of it.

Yesterday he saw a butterfly on my flowers and proceeded to tell me to come out “….Mom-mom come here there’s a white butterfly with a mole on it, hurry-up and be quite you don’t want to scare it…”.  He listens so well (when he wants to).

After this was taken he chose not to listen to his mother and was sent to “time-out”.  He was all attitude at that point.

But lucky for us, his attitudes do not last long.  Within 5 minutes we were back looking for more insects to photograph.

Bear Crossing 2

Last year I was told about the wild bears that are about an 45 minutes from where we are staying. When I took the pictures all looked great on my camera however, when I went to upload them I lost 90% of the pictures.

So I had to go back again this year to see if we can get lucky again.  Luck was on our side, we saw 3 bears, a cub and 2 adult bears.

Unfortunately 1 of the adult bears was dead. It appeared to have been shot. If you look closely at the adult bear you will see that it appears have been shot.  I notified the Animal Refuge agency the next day.

Photobombed

I have been going to Strawbridge Lake on my lunch break all week waiting for these flowers to bloom.  I know that since the weekend is here and I am not in that area they will surely bloom.

After loading the images from yesterday’s visit I notice that a dragonfly photobombed it.

If you enlarge the below photo you can see the little critters that must also be on their lunch break feasting away.

Early morning sounds

This weeks Daily Post challenge is Morning.  I am only a morning person when I go on vacation (7 day to go!!), but I stay up late almost every day.

So for this challenge I was unsure what to post then it dawned on me….The early morning (after midnight) sounds of nature.

So about 1:00 am I take my trusty Sony camera out to record the sounds around my home.  I love hearing this. It is so much better than hearing the sounds of cars speeding by like when I lived in an apartment.

Do you enjoy the sounds of nature?

Yes it is really this dark here.  There is one street light and it is very dull so it does not show in the video.

Thanks for visiting!!

Ready for Takeoff

Since Monday I have been going to Strawbridge Lake waiting for the water lilies to bloom.  Still no luck.  So today I was able to photography a dragonfly that was resting on a ledge.

Open the door mom! 25/30

Another late night visitor.

Arai’s mommy works 2nd shift, so she generally uses her key and comes on in. But last night she rings the doorbell. Why? When I open the door she tells me that there is a green thing and a brown thing by the door.  So I instantly think she is telling me so I can get a picture.  So I run back in the house and get my camera.

When I come. back she is trying to fuss (you cannot truly fuss with your mom) that she wanted me to get the bugs out-of-the-way not take any pictures.  Lol what can I say…

I did not clear the way after I took the pictures, she had no choice but to go pass this tiny creature.

Phonto

I like looking at animals and insects and seeing how they are created to blend in with their surroundings.  This creatures body resembles a leaf.
