Trying to decide

I took this a few weeks ago and have never decided if I thought it blog-worthy or not.  It seems so cluttered, but then it seems sort of natural.  And I like the way it is looking at me.  This photo has been slightly cropped.

EDited to add....does the leg look funny to you guys?  I did not notice this until I posted it.  It looks like a 'ghost' leg that belongs to another bird.  I went back and looked.  In reality, it is the leg on the side that is towards the camera.  The feeder between the the camera and woodpecker has 'post' to stick fruit on.

Small picture show....

I hate to do this to you, but then I hate for you to miss the show.
So here is tonight's sunset
as seen out at the strip pit/mining area.

I suggest clicking on the first one to expand the view...

I hope you enjoy these...seems like I don't take as many sunset photos as I used to.  I guess I am making up for lost time.

Baby Blue....

I went for years, and seldom got a chance to get a good photo of a damselfly, and then had a day that made up for all the others.   This one, too, was taken on July 29th.

And just for the heck of it, does anyone besides me remember this song:

Early road grader





Another item from Patton's Corner...there is just so much stuff there, it is hard to remember what I have shown and what I haven't.
Just a bit more of the hyacinth bean plant....I am so loving vine!

Pretty on pink

Not only is pink pretty to wear, it is pretty as a background.  This is a cropped portion of a pic taken yesterday morn in my backyard.

Baby Blues...

On our way to Goose pond at the end of last month, we stopped at this one river and got out and walked around a little.  There were these damselflies....and there was a lot of them.  I think this is my favorite pic I took of them.

It's time for Good Fences

We ran across these fence posts a few weeks back...seemed like no matter how I tried, the pictures were just sort of blah.  But still I find them interesting so am going to show one.
Another that is not so great, but at least I have the excuse of it is a drive-by.  I took it for the sunflower, but then noticed the fence and thought it was a good excuse to put it here.

Barns for Rubbish Tuesday

Am joining with a few barns...some have been posted before.  I know the one above was posted before, but that was back in 2011 and it is 2014 now.
I had to include this, even though if you click to expand the view, you would have clearly seen that this is the e-i-e-i-o farm!
and to close out the post, the one above and the one below are from Tennessee.

From earlier this year...

This was taken back in June...I take pictures very similar to this each and every year...every time I am given the opportunity, in fact.

Notice the fly in the one above!
These are all cropped a bit..

Monarch


I forget where I was at when I got to photograph this monarch.  And that was just a week or two ago!

Name this insect!

I have not tried to identify it yet myself and I took this over a week ago.  I don't think I have ever seen a bug more beautiful than this one. 

Notice that it's feet seem to be edged with gold...that is how it actually looked.
