Wildlife and Dreamy Baby on the Riverwalk

Waterfall, Baby Dragonfly, Yellow Crowned Night Heron, Pink Crape Myrtle Flowers on the Riverwalk, Dreamy Baby, Sound Asleep Baby

Every morning I walked for four hours–or walked and stopped to take pictures. The baby’s pictures are a little dreamy, courtesy of the heavy humidity and my lens fogging up constantly. A little later in the morning, it wasn’t so bad. But first thing in the morning, it was a struggle to take a fog-free photo. I was thrilled when two baby dragonflies landed nearby, the one within inches of my camera. And the yellow crowned night heron juvenile gave me lots of photo ops too!

I finished 2 of the panda bear orders last night! And the edits on SEAL Wolf Surrender. Just need to read over the whole book today and then send it in. And I have another panda bear order to fill. Still have several more bears in process. But I also need to get started on the next wolf book–back in Silver Town! I’m working on Claiming the White Bear and Cougar Magic also. I’ve been trying to think of where I’m going to go with the Silver Town book before I really start it. And I need to write the synopsis for SEAL Wolf Surrender. I guess I’ll do that today too!

Off to work!! Have a super, picturesque day!!!

Baby Dragonfly and Wooly Bear Caterpillar

 


Wooly Yellow Bear Caterpillar that turns into a Virginian Tiger Moth, thought I had a picture of one, but I couldn’t find it. It’s all white.

And the baby dragonfly is visiting the winged fairy in the cowboy boot. The dragonfly is to the left and above my name on the leaf.

Love dragonflies. They eat bad bugs. If you see to the right and below the caterpillar, there is an assassin bug.

All kinds of little critters in the yard.

Have a lovely day!! 🙂 <3

I LOVE Dragonflies and Their Wings of Stained Glass

Blue Dasher baby

dragonfly 010 (640x570)A blue dasher female dragonfly. Isn’t she beautiful? She’s eating aphids on the snapdragon plant. The top three were taken at my home here. I’ve seen more, but not that have settled for me to take a picture. I saw another baby dasher, but so tiny and it was flying, it was barely visible.

Lightened up the background a little so the dragonfly is easier to see against the cement slab.

Common Whitetail Skimmer–Male

I caught a shot of this dragonfly, but the puppies kept chasing him off, not seeing him, but wondering what I was trying to photograph. Do you see where his wings appear to disappear? They were transparent and the moss covered cement showed right through them.

Dragonfly, Brown and Gold–Skimmer Female

On the brown and gold dragonfly, you can see the wood grain through her wings also. I caught this picture of her a couple of years ago.

And the brick through this dragonfly’s wings.

I thought this was the same dragonfly as I captured in the shot earlier. But the other has a blue tail.:)

Notice the shadow her wings create?

Whenever I see a dragonfly settle somewhere, I run in and hope by the time I retrieve my camera, he or she will still be waiting for me to have his or her picture taken. So the top female skinner was on a plant or rock, not sure, when I was watering my coneflowers and disturbed her. She settled on the rock nearby and I happily ran inside to get my camera (after I finished watering my plants), returned, and found she was still waiting patiently for me.

They are beautiful, eat the bad bugs, and are very much the part of a fairy garden. I keep seeing butterflies, but they won’t stop for pictures. *sigh*

Okay, I’ve written 10,000 words in the last couple of days, have 10,000 to go, and I need to proof A Very Jaguar Christmas, and write 3 promotional blogs. They’re due the 20th, the proof, the 29th, and the book, July 1st. So lots of deadlines, which means I shouldn’t be taking pictures of dragonflies, right? Nah….

Have a great dragonfly day!

Storms and 19″ of Rain!

Storm Total Rainfall and Flood Reports

storms between night (640x427)I thought I had left a light on outside because all of a sudden, it was really light out at 8:30 pm, and then it stormed again.

More thunderstorms possible this afternoon. But in the meantime, sunny skies and look what I captured when I took the puppies out for a walk? A baby dragonfly.

Oh, oh, just saw daddy cardinal with TWO baby cardinals feeding them! I wondered if there were two of them. But they were on the patio and by the time I noticed them, I missed getting a picture of all 3 of them together. More later.

Okay, off to write. Have a super great day!!!
