More about SkyWatch, and Fornicating Bugs Photos

I should have put a link in my SkyWatch Friday post to tell others how to join in the fun but I reckon I was so excited about it being my first time, and anxious about if I was doing it right, that I forgot.

All ya gotta do is take your photo, or use one you've previously taken, and then click on the link and add the url to your photo on the SkyWatch blog. You can read all about it over there and also view some, or all, of the WONDERFUL shots that others have already submitted for this week. I'm still working on seeing them all and I plan to be done before the next SkyWatch, I hope!

I used the url that takes the viewer directly to my skywatch post (click on Links to this Post which is right after your comments link on your post), that way, they go to that post rather than having to scroll through other posts I've done since to get to it.

Lordy I'm horrible at trying to explain these things that rattle around in my head, y'all forgive me please.







Now, on to those fornicating bugs that were using one of the sunflowers as a buggy motel. Aren't they Ugly? You can click the photos to make them larger but that also makes them uglier. I have no idea what they are except that they're BIG, almost as big as a half dollar. I sure hope these were adult critters and not teenagers who still have some growing to do.

Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes! I had a really nice day and received the most wonderful presents, James made the most delicious grilled dinner and some of our babies came to have dinner and eat cake with Nanaw. Thank you Miz Donna for the great book and sweet cards, and Miz Phyllis for the wonderful e-card!

Tomorrow's Saturday, James and Zach are leaving early to go fishing, Nanaw's sleeping late. Yeah!!!!

Hi Brenda. Sorry I miss your birthday but I hope it was a great one. Those bugs sure are ugly and I have no idea what they are but it's a great shot!

My word these are horny pics of these bug creatures - I'm hopeless at macros so most of my pics are of bigger things.

If skywatch has you confused it ain't surprising - the rule is there is no rule which is what makes it so challenging - you have to choose to follow your own rule.

good to find your blog - will be back.

Hmmmm...SkyWatch Friday, huh? I may have to join that one. I love taking pictures of pretty skys! I'm glad your birthday was a good one. Thanks for the fornicating bug pictures. What's unreal is that I actually clicked on one to make it bigger! Gah!! My eyes!!!

Karen M said...

I've been meaning to tell you that I really like your sunflower picture in your header. Looks really good.

Sally said...

So glad you had a good birthday!!

As for Skywatch; it looks like you've got it all figured out now. I'm still pondering the Brenda Photo Challenge link and wondering how that works better than before. Seems like more trouble to me; but then I was born blonde also, Ms. Brenda. :)

Donna said...

PS- Come pick up Your copy of "A Beautiful Site" award!!! It's for photography!!! Love you!hughugs

Yo, cyber sister, happy birthday, even if I am a day late and a dollar short.

Do y'all have those little black and orange bugs that we very casually refer to as F**kbugs because they are always joined with another during their short life cycle? They get as thick as fog in s.e. Tex and s.w. La. and have ruined many a paint job. You know the ones.

Happy birthday, sugah.

April said...

They're not the sweetest looking bugs. Happy Belated Birthday!

hi brenda, if you enjoy taking photos of bigs, etc (like i do), you also join in to 'camera critters', a sunday meme (in the same way that sky watch is a friday meme).
have fun, that's what it's all about!
