Stripes and Dots

Went to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge yesterday with my nieces and had a really nice relaxing afternoon.  Here is one of the gems that I was able to capture.

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.

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!

The Green Machine

****UPDATE was able to find out that this is a Pond Hawk Dragonfly.

Yesterday before the storm hit I took a brief walk at the lake by my job and found this dragonfly.

I do not know what type it is so if someone knows please let me know.

Today when I opened my front door there was a dragonfly hanging on the from the top trim of the door frame.  Is it good luck?  Last week I had a Praying Mantis inside and now there is a dragonfly and he stayed hanging around for hours.

I also had another visitor, a moth.  I have never seen a moth like this before.  The marks on its wings look like Japanese writing

Does anyone know what kind of moth this is?

Thanks for stopping by!

 UPDATE 8/4/14……I posted this pic on Instagram and I was advised that this moth is called a Clymene.  I also found another WP post about it here.

A stroll in the park

Took a walk in Berlin Park today. I lived in this area for most of my life and never actually walked this park.

A Dragonfly even decided to pose for me.

I am not sure if this is a “weed” or a “flower” but I thought it photographed nicely.
