FROG DISCOVERS TEXTILE ART

Visiting friend wearing fabulous French scarf meets visiting frog!

Frog thoroughly examines scarf texture and design. Not something he is used to seeing! But he is comfortable on French scarf because his legs are too skinny to be featured on a French restaurant’s menu.

It was such an overwhelming adventure he had to sit and think for awhile!

Please don’t tell him I asked, but have  you ever eaten frog legs?

DRAGONFLY SHOWS HIS AGE!

dragon-widow

This is an elderly male Widow Skimmer. Note the worn, torn wing edges from weeks of flying and constant encounters with branches,thorns and maybe even birds. The white marks on the abdomen and shoulders of thorax were once black. He’s obviously doing fine because he is eating a tiny green beetle!

dragon-whitetail

Compare to a young male Common Whitetail. Undamaged wing edges. Thorax and abdomen unmarred. Notice the different colors and patterns on the different dragons!

Have you seen many dragonflies this summer? We think there are a lot this year!

DO WE THANK BEES FOR FLOWERS OR FLOWERS FOR BEES?

The pink spots remained when morning raindrops dried!

I am thankful for bees and flowers and raindrops and for your thoughts!

 

BEES NEVER LEAVE THE OFFICE!

Imagine if your office was a sunflower!  And that you don’t have allergy issues…

bees-3

Here’s what I discovered when I went to add scraps to my neighbor’s compost pile!  These 3 bees fell sound asleep collecting pollen last night, brilliantly eliminating their morning commute.

Please let me know if you can identify the bees!

FROGGY FOOT MASSAGE

I felt his cold, wet body pressed against mine. Much wiggling and squirming! A friend joined him.

Eventually they both reappeared at my toes!  Recommend you add ‘Double Froggy Foot Massage’ to your bucket list!  Are you a green tree frog lover?

LOOK INTO MY EYES!

Turn around slowly so I can see all of you. OK. That’s enough. I was looking for someone with wings. Since you don’t have wings, please leave. Thank you. praying-mantis

Good day!

One of you was admiring my abdomen pattern design. Thank you. Here is a close-up:
