Down Side Up

I'm sure one of the cardinal rules of flying aircraft is to land with the down side down.  That does not apply to dragonflies, however.
It was windy at the beach and this one took refuge under the roof of our patio.

2 Things Challenge: Eye/Sharp

The 2 Things Challenge this week is Eye/Sharp.
While in Ft. Walton Beach, we visited an outlet mall which had a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.  The treats inside were not only sweets for the tummy, but there was plenty of eye candy as well.
And if you finished one of these (which we didn't) you would have a sharp stick to do with as you wish.  Just be careful of your eye.

Fungi and Moss

The last time we went to Pennsylvania it rained the entire time we were there.  Plus it had been quite wet for several days before we arrived.  Therefore, there was an abundance and variety of the spore reproducers everywhere.

Partners in Crime

Actually, this is another case of photographing one thing (the spider with her beady, multiple eyes) and finding something else (the ant) while processing the image.  I don't think either realized the other was there.

2 Things Challenge: Abstract/Value

The 2 Things Challenge this week was Abstract/Value.
This was one of the first photos I took in a class way back in 2007 called "The Art of Seeing."  It came out as a very abstract way of seeing the fall colors across the river, and although it was based as much on luck as it was on my ability to "see," it had some value to me at the time.

Gullectric Slide

Went to Fort Walton Beach, FL last weekend and the gulls were everywhere.  This one was practicing his Electric Slide line dance.
