Weather report: It’s amazing how different everything looks after a good night’s sleep, facing two whole days without work, and seeing the sun instead of another day of rain.
Despite the sun, the high’s today will only be in the mid 50’s with a chance of frost tonight. Clear skies means cold nights.
Last month I spent the whole day at our local nature center participating in Bioblitz . One of the programs offered was Photoblitz, a photo competition where participants used the nature center as the subject. I thought it would be fun to participate. I took pictures from 7:00 in the morning to 10:00 at night. I had a blast! Of all the 100s of photos that I took that day, I had seven that I thought were the best. It was very difficult to narrow it down to the 2 I was allowed to enter.
Here are the seven that I liked the best. Be sure to click on the photo to get a clearer view.
seeing the steam rise from the river – 7:30am
mushrooms growing from the root system of a downed tree, looking like a fairy highrise.
The sun burns away the morning fog – 9:00am
A pastoral scene on the trail
A garden spider covered in dew
Goldenrod in the Tall Prairie grasses – 5:00pm
spider web in the evening sun – 7:45 pm
Can you guess which two I ended up entering into the competition?
