Photos from Email

Never, ever would I be lucky enough to get photos like this, let alone see the subject matter before the photo. I got these in email, and I just had to share with you.


Look at this cocky son-of-a-gun. I imagine that is his "threat" pose. I've never seen a praying mantis display like that. He's either telling us to back off or he's trying out for a Broadway show.


This looks more like a painting than a photo, but this guy gets similar photos all the time. If you like birds, go see him often.

How sweet. I've never spent a lot of time around horses, but they fascinate me (as long as I don't have to ride one).

Ladybug, ladybug.....fly away home.

Yikes! What a tongue. It looks more like a lasso.

Please tell me who has the time to crochet a coat for a tree. A "coat of many colors", at that!

And whoever stacked this woodpile is an artist!! I would not want to remove any wood from it, would you?

Whoever stacked that woodpile had more time on his hands than 95% of the population!

I don't know when Nyssa will come home. She went to Texas for spring break and since she got her dad to help out with her summer rent situation... I expect a return trip is expected. My brother will be here on April 11th for a couple of weeks though. We have much to do... he is doing an addition to the house.

The only one I had seen before was the wood pile. Great photos.

Amazing. The wood pile reminds me of a jazz player who went to buy a bottle of booze from his local selling out shop. The shop owner was coming round from behind the counter to hand him his chosen bottle from the stack but he said he'd help himself, pulled out a bottle from the middle of the stack and the whole lot crashed. Just thought you'd like to know that:)

My guess on the mantis would be that he is trying to attract a mate. These are some great photos. I'm with you on the horse business. I love to look at them, but the few times I've ridden, they horse has always tried to kill me. Now about those lady bugs -- wish there was a ruler of something near them to get an idea of their size because they look huge! We are terrorized by lady bugs right now and my chickens and guines fowl can bareley keep up.

Where do all those lady bugs come from? Do you have them in your house every Spring? I do ... and have no idea how they got in !

Palm Springs Savant said...

Love the woodpile! Great artist! But as far as the tree coat is concerned, one can only ask WHY???

Thumper said...

I feel pretty, oh so pretty...

Lisa said...

They are all amazing but that woodpile is crazy! Holy cow. I had to look closely because I thought you had just added a photo of a dead tree lying there. WOW

Grannymar said...

Some very interesting pics there Judy.

I never actually knew what a praying mantis looked like. I think they dance better than I do!

Loren said...

These photos were sent to me, too, Judy.

That Praying Mantis photo seems almost too fantastci to be real, doesn't it?

They're all great and show what's possible when you really pay attention to the moment and carry a camera with you.

Love all of them!!!! And re: the tree, the answer is someone with more time and ebergy than I do as we;; as a bigger basket of yarn scraps than I do!!!!

moon said...

I was totally amazed by these when I got them...and yeah, who crochets a coat for a tree?? but I have to admit its very artist lol...gotta wonder if its a canadian tree, gets cold enough here lmao!!

Peter said...

Certainly some interesting photos Judy, some people have time and talent to spare.

What is that the preying mantis is spreading out like wings?! Scary stuff. Wonderful woodpile. It had me fooled!

Buzzardbilly said...

OMG those are fantastic! It makes my whole preying mantis cacoon dealio a whole new kind of exciting. I'll be watching for displays. Oh, yes, I will!

Jamie Dawn said...

I chuckled over your saying that the mantis might be doing a Broadway show move. Funny!

That wood pile art is terrific.

The woodpile is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. However, come winter who would want to take even one log from it? I hope this person had a utility wood pile!
