Fairies all around us

These are not actually fairies but termites. Before they settled down on this tree stump, they were fluttering all around looking faries…..sometimes my imagination can be very vivid for 52 year “young” woman.

Termites can reek much havoc on a home by causing hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in damage to the structure of the property.

In spite of this, I will still consider them fairies for this post.

Tag Your It!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” by Don McCullin

 

Today I watched these two little squirrels chasing each other up, down and around this tree.  They were fun to watch and photograph.  It made me remember times when my bothers and I would play “tag your it”, “Mother May I” or kickball in this same backyard many years ago.  It brought back fun times.

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”

Art of Observation

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

Quote of the Day

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.

What you have caught on film is captured forever…

It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.

Back to reality

Vacation is over, we came back Saturday evening.  It was a heck of a ride.  The usual 6.5 hour trip took almost 9 hours.  We had a couple of mishaps while on vacation that we had to deal with while leaving.

First, my father was involved in a car accident…totaled his van.  He is ok, just a little sore the next day from the seat belt being worn.  Then then same evening when my nephew, his wife and son were coming down, they were about an hour out when a deer suddenly jumped in the middle of the road and hit their car.  Fortunately, it was not totalled but it caused the delays when we were leaving since we had to get a U-Haul truck with a car pull to bring his car home.  He and his family were ok as well.

Now that the bad stuff is out-of-the-way VACATION was great.  We went on the main land to see the wild bears again.  And I finally got to see the wild horses.

The bear.  We were all looking and looking but did not see anything.  We were beginning to think that we weren’t going to see anything when Arai yells “I see one, go back, go back!”.  While the rest of us were looking down at the tree base he was looking up into the trees.  We adults  forgot that bears, especially cubs, climb trees.  We only saw the one baby cub.

Now for the wild horses.  I have been dying to go and see the wild horses since I found out that they were here on the island.  It was a great adventure and a good day but not worth the $117.00 that we paid.

These horses are direct descendants of the Spanish Mustang that came to America back in the 160o’s.  Theses Mustangs roam wild in an exclusive neighbor.  I coud imagine waking up in the morning to see these beautiful creatures grazing on my property.  It was indeed a sight to see.

We were only able to see 5 horses and one was expecting.

Mid-day Feast

 

This juvenile bird, I believe it’s a Hawk but not too sure, was feasting on his lunch when I was visiting the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge the other day.  It watched him for a few minutes and he was fascinating to watch.

This image below is of another Hawk that was just resting.

Wordless Wednesday in Black and White

Tent Caterpillar

As a child I used to see a lot of cocoons in trees, but not so much anymore.  Is that a good or bad thing?  Who knows but I suspect it is not good as this may mean that there are fewer and fewer of these worms.

Entered for this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge: Transient since the cocoons do not las long.  Here today gone tomorrow (few weeks)
