70° and Counting

Today and tomorrow the weather folks think that we will have record-breaking temperatures for December.  Today it reached 70 and tomorrow it is expected to reach 72.

I am celebrating this warm weather by sharing some pictures from this past summer.

I know I should not celebrate all this potential record-breaking weather this winter because at some point we will pay the price.

WP PHOTO CHALLENGE: (EXTRA) ORDINARY

I believe that butterflies are extraordinary creatures.  They begin their life as a caterpillar, once they reach a certain weight and length they enclose themselves in a Pupa or Chrysalis.  Depending on the breed they can be in the pupa for a few days or as long as a winter season.

But when they finally emerge, it is the image of beauty and grace.

Ordinary?

Ordinary or Extraordinary?

Perhaps the butterfly is proof

that you can go through a great deal of

darkness and yet come out…..

Visitors at the Balcony Oasis

As some of you may now I created a Balcony Oasis for relaxation and to hopefully attract some butterflies to photograph.  Well it has been over 2 months and to my knowledge no butterflies have been around.

I thought since summer is almost over that I was not going to see a butterfly so I kinda gave up hope and just focused on my flowers.  To my surprise while taking some pictures of the new blooms I noticed this butterfly/moth came to dine on my fading Petunia.  If you look really close you can even see its “tongue” lapping up some deliciousness.

It looks a little too hairy to be a butterfly so I think it is actually a moth but as usual I do not know what it is and it really does not matter.  But if you know please share.

~~ Cricket ~~

While sitting my big behind on the floor to capture some pictures that I may use for this weeks photo challenge this little cricket decided to take a break on my foot.  I have never seen one with a yellow stripe and when I did an image search on google nothing came up.

WP Photo Challenge: Inspiration

Inspiration

My mood helps to inspire me when I tend to think too much and I need to get out of my head. When this happens I grab my trusty Sony a65 or Note 4 and head out the door to capture something interesting.  Arai (my handsome grandson) is also a great inspiration.

Today and yesterday I was inspired once again to go to the lake by my job and take some pictures.  Nature and all of her glorious wonders is awe-inspiring.

Check out the what inspires others and maybe you will get a little more inspired too!

Another Lunch Date

Friday when I was eating lunch in my car I notice this little guy on my windshield.  I have been waiting for some butterflies to come and visit my Balcony Oasis but this maybe all I get this season.

It seems a bit hairy for a butterfly so I did a search and it is a moth.

I forgot to add these pictures to the previous W.O.W Butterflies post.

This is what greeted us as we arrived at WOW (World of Wings).

I have already planned to go back so that I can see this art piece with some nice green grass reflecting on the wings.

I was not able to get a straight picture of the art piece due to the glare from the sun.
