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.


Thanks for visiting!!


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.


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.

A Bug Magnetic?

I am not sure what is going but for some reason I am attracting all sorts of bugs.

Last night while sitting in my computer room all of a sudden there is this flying thing fluttering on my wall.  I snapped a few pictures (yes the camera is always ready) before I trapped it and attempted to set it free outside.

When I tossed it outside it looked like it came back in and landed on my pants.  But I did not see anything so I thought nothing of it.

After about 10 minutes I feel a tickle on my arm so I rub my arm and it is the flying bug!

Needless to say I let out a little scream.

I managed to catch it again and this time I made sure it was outside.

Does anyone know what this is?

Entered into this week’s WP Challenge Curve for the wings and body.

Well as always thanks for visiting!

And even though it’s hard
and I may struggle through it all.
You see me struggle…
you will NEVER see me fall.

If you look closely you can see a little green bug on top of the post.

Late Night Visitor

Last night I was doing laundry. After I took the clothes from the dryer I turned to get the clothes from the washer and the I saw IT.

OMG I do not ever recall seeing a spider so big. I did not know what to do first. Kill it or take its picture.

Needless to say I had to run and get the camera first while praying that it did not move.  If it wasn’t there when I came back I would have had a heart attack.

Thank goodness it was still there.


What the @$#&!!

What would you have done?

Just a Bud

This bud caught my eye because it was redder than the rest so I started snapping away.

Not till I got home and began reviewing the images did I realize that the redness was actually red ants.

Mid Flight

My mother has this huge wisteria bush that vines all the way down her fence.  Last night it was full of bees that appeared to be in a feeding frenzy.

The smell of the wisteria was so powerful that it fill most of the back yard.  I wisht that the scent would last all summer long.
