Looking down

Walking over a bridge I looked down
and snapped this picture.
It was a long way down.
 Have a great Tuesday.

I tried looking up yesterday's critter on line.  It certainly looks like a
Banded Paper Wasp but the thing is, they are found in Asia!!

One orange

Another critter I've seen for the first time.
Looks like a wasp, but I've never seen one with one orange stripe.
He is a bit blurry, but the best one I could get.
Hope your Monday is a good one.

Painted Leaf

This leaf turning color already,
looks to me as if someone spilled paint on it.
Have a bright sunny day.

No need to wait in a line for a drink at Lowe's.
Take your pick!
I couldn't help but laugh at this. : )
Enjoy your Tuesday.

This Katydid takes a rest on the front of our truck.
Stayed there for a least 15 minutes,
Hope you have a great Monday.

Note Card Party

It's Note Card Party day again over at Vee 's.
This month I didn't pick a theme but went with four
of my favorites pictures.

I love these giant wind mills.
They seem like aliens to me
and are so peaceful to watch go round and round.
I wish I could have one. : )
I walked back to take this picture to show the size.
 I love this old tree who looks as though it has been
through some rough times.
But still hangs in there.
A snow covered foot bridge.
One I've walked over many times.
Peaceful and quiet.
This path leads to my lake
that I walk around a lot of mornings.
If you would like to see more Note Card Party pictures hop on over to Vee's.
Or join in and post some pictures of your own.
The only rule is that the pictures have to have been posted on your blog before.
Thanks Vee for hosting! : )

Enjoy your day.


A footbridge I walked across this morning on my walk.
A happy day to you.

A Towing Bus

Driving down the road it was strange to see this school bus towing a car.
It's a first for me.
Husband said he was probably delivering the bus and 
took his car to drive back home in.
Have a great Monday.

Orange Salamander

Another creature we spotted on our land.
Quite a colorful fellow.

Thanks everyone for naming the Luna Moth from yesterday. : )
The post in the picture from yesterday AuntieA is our street light than Ken put up.  The bell he got from an auction he went to a while back.  

A happy Sunday to you all.

A green something

Spotted this green flying moth thing sitting on a post up on our land.  
Anyone ever seen anything like it or know what it is?
It was quite big - about three inches across.
It stayed there long enough for me to get a step ladder,
climb up and take pictures so I was able to get up nice and close.
It must have stayed there over an hour.

A happy day to you.

The Lake

It is a joy to be able to walk around this lake and enjoy the beauty.
If you possibly can, take a walk today.
It will bring you joy. : )

Another critter

This looks like a grasshopper but I've never seen one quite like this.
Happy Saturday.

Lisa - It was easy to take yesterdays picture of the butterfly because he just sat there and didn't seem to mind the camera at all!

Friday, July 6, 2012


Don't know what kind this is but he stayed perfectly still like this for about 10 minutes.  Plenty of time to get a close up.
A happy day to you.

Old building

On my walk yesterday I followed this sign.
It was closed, but I stood by the fence and snapped this picture.
A happy July 4th to you.
