Betty’s AOTD Challenge: December 24, 2019

Squirrel 5Birds & BayI took both of these photographs yesterday (December 23, 2019). The squirrel was in my very front yard. The birds were at Hillsmere Beach. With the second shot, I just got lucky. I was taking pictures of the water of the mighty Chesapeake. When I got home and downloaded everything from the day onto my crummy Dell laptop, this picture caught my eye. I had to crop it down quite a bit. This is what was left! I call episodes like that “God moments.” That is when I can see God working in my life in ways that are tangible. I am linking this post to Betty Louise’s Animal of the Day challenge, December 9, 2019.

Betty’s AOTD Challenge: November 18, 2019

This is my entry for Betty Louise’s Animal of the Day challenge. I haven’t been diligent about keeping up with this challenge. Having been under the weather for the past few days, I at least have some sort of an excuse. Can you believe it’s only ten days to Thanksgiving? I wonder how many people will be able to post photographs of turkeys? Unless it’s frozen, the best I have of shot of posting is a turkey buzzard!

June Bug

My! What big mandibles you have! The humble June bug is a member of the Scarab family. They are in the order of Beatles, not the band from Liverpool, but rather a diverse group of insects that can be found all over the world.

These pics are selections from a single photo shoot. These aren’t my wounded friend, who I saw only yesterday in the front yard with his short tail and dramatic scar. I love them all. The photographs above represent two squirrels. Four are of the same squirrel and then there’s one odd-man-out. Can you pick him out?

Capn and first mate 1Captain (right) and First Mate. According to his human companion, the Captain is a samoyed.  Sweet, playful and friendly, the Captain is the alpha of the pack. He barks his orders at you with a single, authoritative bark. He expects to be obeyed immediately. The First Mate is a bit nervous, like most poodles, but she is also very intelligent and eager to please. They are the power-couple of the neighborhood. If you should encounter them, please remember to remove your hat.
