Life in the Land of Rocks

This is my contribution to Fandango’s Friday Flashback. I wasn’t too pleased with any past November 29 posts. This photo is from November 4, 2010. The setting is Joshua Tree National Park.

Photo Challenge 291

Photograph by Winsome Woods

It didn’t take an expert to tell me that something was seriously wrong. There was something wrong with me. Was it my brain? Worse yet, was it my soul? The whole thing began in the wee hours of the morning one week ago. I heard a voice, a woman’s voice. It said, “Turn me on.”

Since it was dark, I turned on the lamp beside my bed in order to get a better look at the intruder in my room. The voice spoke again. It said, “Thank you.” And that’s when I knew that I was in big trouble. For the voice I heard emanated from the very table light that I’d just touched.

Okay, that about the best I can do with the photograph provided for this photo challenge. Now I’m going to post a photograph in keeping with the theme of lights or lamps. Any feedback is always appreciated! –Russell

Butterfly, November 22, 2019

Photographed September 2 of this year, Truxtun Park, Annapolis Maryland.

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, one might be tempted to call this little fellow a moth, due to the rather unspectacular colors of its wings; however, it is clearly identifiable as a butterfly. This is because of the shape of its antenna. Moths have short, feathery antenna, while the butterfly’s is blessed with long, thin ones with a little bulb at the end- similar to the old-fashioned aerial on an automobile. Here is a link that explains other differences between moths and butterflies.

Snake 4Trail 1Please note: I posted the photograph of this snake back in September. It’s such a lovely shade of green that I felt compelled to submit it for this challenge. The photograph above is of the very trail where I found it- in Truxtun Park, Annapolis, Maryland. You can see quite well how the color of the snake’s skin gives it excellent camouflage against predators.

What did they do to you.jpg

What did they do to you? What did they do? Like the proverbial broken record, these thoughts played themselves over and over again in his mind. His circular thinking was driving him mad. Never in a million years did he think that he’d become one of THOSE people… Those who claimed that they were abducted by UFOs.

What did they do to you? The words slid from their mouths like slippery jello jellyfish from their molds. What did they do?
