A Meeting At the Watering Hole

At my mother’s house she has a bird bath and everyday the bird bath is full of bees.

There is nothing pedestrian about this scene.  The bees move in such an excited frenzy.

Treescape

I photographed this image the other day when I was at the Edwin B. Forsythe Wildlife Refuge.  I like how the jagged wood in the center of the tree resembles a cityscape.  To me it looks like tall buildings.

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.

Satisfaction

Football is (almost) a mandatory activity for all little boys here in the US.  And when you have big cousins that play college football it is definitely a mandatory sport.

Arai is now 4 years old and playing his first organized sport, FOOTBALL.  He has been telling is mom for a while that he wants to play football like his cousin RJ.  The day finally came for him to play and at first he did not want to play anymore because he wanted to go to the playground instead.  After he met Coach Marcus he was ready to play.

 

I think he was happy and satisfied that he played some football.

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)

The thief is back..and he has a partner!

A couple of weeks ago I photographed a squirrel “stealing” bird seed that I put out.  Now yesterday I finally catch him again and this time there are two of them.  The one on the feeder takes some seeds and makes sure to drop some for his partner in crime below.  As a result my flowers are being trampled and breaking off.

On Instagram it was suggested that I get a new feeder with a spinner on it to keep the squirrels away.  Well Wal-Mart did not have any when I went so I go something that I thought would work.  It did not

 

 

I will be on the hunt for a bird feeder with a spinner on it.  Get ready for some funny videos.

Field Station: Dinosaurs

I first heard about Field Station Dinosaurs about 2 years ago.  So today my family and I decided to go and check it out.  The reviews online were so so but I took the chance any way.  I am glad that I was not influenced by some of the reviews.

Field Sation: Dinosaurs is a good place to visit and perfect for children 8 and under and adults who are still children at heart.  We had a GREAT time.

Here are just a few pictures.

Scientists believe that the horn on the Parasaurolophus made noise so that it could alert others of danger, mating, and possibly when it was in pain.

 

There are things for the kids to do for additional fun, some cost extra money and others do not.

I hope you enjoyed the dinosaurs and as always, thanks for visiting!

 

When Mom-mom is the Sitter….FUN HAPPENS!

Arai and I spent some time together today on another Adventure.  It is a rainy day here in New Jersey and he needed to release some of his pent-up energy for the sake of everyone else’s sanity.  So I took him to one of his favorite places, the woods, which we refer to as an Adventure.

Here are a few quick pictures that I was able to capture when he slowed down a bit.

                          Look at the happiness on that face!

This is something that his mother would never let him do and since I am Mom-mom she can’t fuss at me for allowing and encouraging it….LOL

Doing the Happy Dance to be in the woods again!
