Sometimes I wonder where that girl goes. I usually hunt around the house for a while and when I can’t find her, I immediately look toward the pond. That’s usually where she is, all dressed up in her “outback” outfit. Big rubber boots for the high grass, outdoors hat for the sun, long sleeves for the insects. All that makes her look like she’s on safari from the window. She’s out there for hours sometimes, taking was is actually hundreds of photos. Not seems like hundreds, but actually hundreds.
Many times I take what I like off her camera and save them in my little “pictures” folder, giving them time to rest before I post them here. Sometimes I lose motivation and delete a whole bunch of them. This time, I kept a lot and I’ve been posting all afternoon.
What I’m going to show you below is what I’ve taken from Laura’s camera this week. This is her pond visit. I like to let her go off on her own (without my nagging) so she can take the remarkable pictures she takes. Mine are my style and hers are hers. Enjoy.
First off, we’ve got some sort of a bee that was taking a break on the bench I dragged out to the pond.
Next, we’ve got a small sampling of nature at its finest. Just some lazy twigs hanging out over the water.
Remember the time I told you about the tadpoles? Well, they’re getting bigger. I just checked on them this morning and they have legs. And I swear I saw one jump in the water and swim away.
And let’s not forget about our modeling salamanders. As I always say, these guys are hilarious. The way they float around is too funny.
Lastly, we’ve got some sort of a dragonfly orgy. I’m not sure what’s going on here, but they seem to really be into what they’re doing. Mating, I’m sure.
