We’re away this weekend, but on the off chance that someone might drop by on a Sunday (usually a quiet day in blogdom), I thought I’d post these pics from a walk with Nikki Dee on Thursday. I took her to McDonalds for my birthday, and after following up with an ice cream cone, which she thought she deserved, we went for a little walk in the little patch of woods on the other side of the river.
We noticed a bee on the goldenrod, and I tried desperately to get a well-focussed, sharp picture. I have tried several times this year, but the little blighters flit so quickly that I have yet to succeed. This effort was no exception; ironically, however, the wasp, which I didn’t even see when I was taking the picture, is fairly sharp.
A little later on the path, we spied the frantic hopping of many little frogs. All but this one darted right across the path and back into the bush, but this guy decided to rely on his camouflage, which didn’t quite work 🙂 . I think it’s a leopard frog or even a northern leopard frog, but I
stand sit to be corrected.
We’re not away for long and may return as soon as this evening.
Next week is a big one because Nikki Dee will begin what will likely be a minimum of 14 years in the education system.
