Today, tomorrow, yesterday and next year are all in the above photos. See upper right over opening morning glory to find the swirling bud waiting to unfurl tomorrow and the red dot remainder of yesterday’s collapsed blossom. Right hand photo shows the seed pod that will soon burst and drop it’s treasures to the ground where they will spend the winter waiting to feel the spring sun’s call.
My shadow sings the sun’s song!
My back hopes each verse is long!
I would prefer not to be known as bluegill bait.
What’s it like to be 10 years old? Take this moment to look through the eyes of my 10 year old grandchild. Her photo makes me feel young and old all at once.
Time out for a couple of cooler weather sunsets!
And the next evening. Check location of sun. It’s a bit further south!
And the next evening from a different location. The pause that refreshes!
Here’s a black swallowtail female on swamp milkweed. She does have lovely blue on her hind wings.
Don’t those look like crooked yellow teeth on his wings? He is enjoying zinnias.
Red Eye is screaming at top of her lungs from her nest-fortress. Both of her parents are in southern red oak above her eating channel catfish. Unlike nests where there are more than one chick fighting for food, she will enjoy the remains of both parents’ fishes.
This gives you an idea of what the original photo looked like, shot through telescope. She is perched on top of nest. Nest box alone is about 3 inches deep. Her nest is a true fortress.
