molting

I got some better pictures of a caterpillar molting.  This time it was hanging in a way that I was able to photograph it from behind instead of from the side, like the last time I got pics.

This is what the molted skin looks like after it has been shed.

faith

Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.

painted lady

I found this caterpillar in my flowerbed and I decided to put it in a jar and see what it would change into.

By the next day it had formed this cocoon.  About a week or so later, I discovered this…

a painted lady butterfly.  I tried to get a shot of it from the side, with it’s wings closed because the underside of the wings are as beautiful as the top side, but I couldn’t get a shot.  I do love my monarchs, but this was kind of a nice change.

something to think about

Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps, if you are not willing to move your feet.

Alfalfa

I found many different shades of alfalfa this summer.  My fave, of course, is purple.

washburn falls

We took a ride out to Washburn Falls recently and I took some HDR shots there.

My original plan was to do time value shots because it had been cloudy all morning.  That is, of course until we got out there, then the sun came out, and it was to bright to do time value, so I decided to do HDR because, with the sun out, is was very shadowy.

i’m looking ahead

For happy successful living, I’ll use this rule of thumb;

There are many good days behind me, but more are yet to come.

So I’ll travel down life’s highway and my road will be much clearer,

If I’m looking out the windshield and not the rearview mirror.
