One of our yard bunnies
While watching birds, the RG said nonchalantly,
'don't step on that snake'.---yipes
Fortunately she slithered into the water
This is not a moth sticker
I didn't know quite how to take this picture
It is the underside through a window.
Guess I need to learn more about Macros
Is that right?
Following Anni's lead of a few weeks ago
and organizing some photos into collages
This is our sassy pair of wrens
in the merry month of May
They've quickly become like members of the family

Who would create this in a rural setting?
Someone with 'vision';
knowing these were located nearby
- an Interstate Exit
- a Riding Stable
- A Family Campground
- A major Riding Trail in the State Park
- A Boating/Fishing Dock
Isn't it GREAT!
I love the seating area at the back; facing the farm.
This thing is Bigger than Life and only appears after
cresting a hill on the road.
Relate it to the ice dispenser on the left; similar to the ones
we all see outside convenience stores.
Won't our eight year old grandson love this
when they visit next month?

Spied this Great Blue Heron in the distance
and hoped it would stay put.
Jumped in my vehicle and headed
for the observation deck.
I see you and you see me.
Libellula incesta, the slaty skimmer, is a dragonfly of the skimmer family, native to eastern United States and southern Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick. Adults are 5.28 cm (2.08 in) long. Mature males are dark blue with black heads. Females and juveniles have brown abdomens with a darker stripe down their backs. Adults fly from June to August.
First of these I've seen.

A couple samples of Nature's Blue on a Sunday morning drive to the local state park.
Been watching for a Red Winged Blackbird
to let Theresa at Run A Round Ranch know they made it north.
Just didn't expect to find it on a dock.
So pretty against the blue water.
This is a box intended by the state for bluebirds
But it appears an irridescent blue Tree Swallow took up residence.
It reminds me of something alien in a blue space suit.
