Old Mother Hubbard

I can see why Old Mother Hubbard would have been frightened if this creature would have sat down beside her. Now can anyone identify this spider for me? It’s web was quite large, and went from the ground up to the Magnolia tree in I believe tree points of connections.

I took pictures of both sides.

If you know what it is please let me know. It is very sci-fi looking.

Does Anyone Know What This Is

I posted these large in hopes that someone could help me identify what in the world it is. This critter was on a vine and you could see its little legs booking it fast. I do not know if it was a spider taking down its web or what? Any ideas?

Come Closer, Come Closer

Guarding the Nest 7-1

 

I kept trying to get this shot and the wasp were getting really aggravated.  Each time the nest humming as if to entice me in closer to get that perfect shot.

Bringing Home A Baby Bumble Bee

I am having a ball with the Macro lens.  WOW!  Just WOW!  I cannot wait to try out the telephoto, too.

The next was a pretty large bumble bee.  I didn’t realize bees were so fast or so hairy.

I found Smurf Village.  Couldn’t find the little blue guys though. They must have been somewhere else.

Such a Beauty, and Not As Earrings

Seeing the beauty of these lizards through the eyes of an adult, I almost feel guilty for wearing them as earrings as a child. I guess they thought they were attacking the giant as they chomped now on my ears, and I thought I was funny. Poor guys!

Glad their descendents do not hold a grudge and pose for such beautiful pictures.

This little fella looked like he was reading the Seven Dust bag in the last two shots.

Dragon Fly, What Big Eyes You Have!

It is interesting once YOU capture something in photo, it becomes yours, and you start noticing things you have not before.  I have noticed the beauty of dragon flies before, even commented on a blog recently about how beautiful their pictures were, but it was not until today when I looked at my pictures that I noticed just how large their eyes are.  Photographers truly do see through different eyes.  I am not in the class with the pros, I will never reach that point, but I am so excited for the eyes that I see through now.

Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me

I remember when as a child swimming and one of these horse flies would come around, we would scream “Horse Fly”!  and everyone would splash and dive under the water.

One landed on the truck today and was able to get a picture close up.
