Photo Friday: Eye Level to a Slug

August 18, 2017

Living in Maine, I’ve seen a lot of leopard slugs, but it’s always from a standing position.  One thing I never knew about them is they have a hole on their side called the pneumostome which is what land slugs and snails use to breath.  In order to see this breathing hole I had to get close to eye level.  That is where today’s picture is from; on my stomach, next to a slug.

I am always amazed by something so small, becoming something so large; just like how these small acorns with their potential to become a beautiful tree.

I took today’s photo on my way in to work.  Raccoons are so cute, I can’t resist sharing.

Photo Friday: On the Brink

August 4, 2017

Recently, I read a list of animals on the brink of extinction, and on this list was the beautiful monarch butterfly.  The reason they gave was a fake science started by a psychiatrist as a social experiment, and pushed by liberal, tree hugging, nut jobs like Al Gore.  Of course, I’m talking about “global warming”, but this is neither a political blog, nor a “fake news” blog, so let’s move on.

As soon as I saw them on the list, I began looking, and of course I found this female monarch.  She was resting in a tree long enough for me to get a couple of shots in.

I love the way nature camouflages animals, like this little toad trying to hide from me on the path.

This catbird decided to pose for my camera.  They are good singers as well; all night long.

I found this cardinal on my way home Saturday morning.  It was missing its head feathers, which gave it the appearance of a skeksis from the movie The Dark Crystal.

Photo Friday: Nature’s Canvas

Every time I go out with my camera, I see the world like a canvas that nature is constantly painting on.  I found this scene the other day after a night of showers.

We have a few chipmunks living in the rocks in the gazeebo out side our building.  I found this one watching me come home from work.
