Insect 1This little critter was captured today in a field near Bywater Drive in Annapolis, Maryland. It should be no surprise at this point to all that it is my entry for IdahoBlueBird50’s Animal of the Day Challenge. Best wishes to all! Cheers!

Granny Shot It BOTD Challenge: September 26, 2019

Osprey 11Osprey 16

My beloved osprey that likes to hang out with his friends near the bridge over Spa Creek on Compliance Street, Annapolis, Maryland. I’ve taken quite a few photographs of this particular bird. It is hard to keep track of them at this point. If I’ve posted either of these before, then I apologize. I’m fairly certain that the bottom photo is new. The top one is a little fuzzier than I usually like to post, so I’d be surprised if I’ve used it in the past for the Bird of the Day Challenge.  Best wishes to everybody. Hang in there! The weekend’s coming!

Devotion, September 26, 2019

Holy MaryHail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.

A big thank you to Joe Owens. Because of his blog, Chasing the Blooms, I discovered another flower-related challenge; that is, Sunshine’s Macro Monday. I am going to double-dip and submit this post to that challenge as well.
