today. sunday. the dark clouds were rolling in.
|looking west, at the end of our drive...across to the field where|
we pick the wild blackberries
i really needed a break from all this sitting at the computer...
and trying to catch up on blog reading.
i needed fresh air.
but the mosquitoes are still monsterous...and still have an appetite that is never satisfied.
i didn't care. i needed out.
i had to hurry though because the sky was about to open up.
thunder was rolling in the distance.
sam told me about a spider he spotted earlier this morn...so i went to find it...
on the side of the house...a pretty good sized web!
here she is, up close.
|Yellow Garden Orbweaver (Argiope aurantia)|
she's perfecting her zipper stitch.
on the other side of the house...was this dangling egg case.
i'm not sure which spider it belongs to.
and here's the really cool Green Lynx spider!
ok, i better hurry this up...power just blinked out...lost my internet...
up and running again.
and now for a few DRAGONflies!!
ONE of my FAVORITES...in the bug family.

i think they knew the rain was not far off.
flying around...always coming back to rest in the same spot.
just like the mushrooms...we have a wide variety of these dragons!!
time to go run through the mud...and the rain. :)
i leave you with this moon shot...
