Arkansas August

We have seen several of these fellas in the yard this year but so far no harmful ones. Maybe the bad ones are searching for a cool wet spot which are few and far between around here this summer.

This critter (shiver,,,) wasn't very big but in macro mode he looks horribly gigantic, doesn't he?

This young fella was really doing some singing the other evening.  I'm sure he had a young lady friend that he was trying to impress somewhere within his sight.  Or maybe he was just happy enough to sing.

I can't remember the last time we've had such a drought. The few rain drops that we've gotten this Summer have done little or nothing to quench the thirst of the gardens and crops.  Luckily most of the farmers have ways of irrigating but it sure takes a lot of their budget to do that.

I hope things are cooler and not so dry where you are!

Later gators.

Photo Challenge: B & W Self-portraits

This is probably not the most favorable time in my life to be taking pictures of myself but it seemed like a good idea for a challenge so I went with it.  I hope everyone who decided to do the challenge this time had a good time doing and and learning from it. There is still time until mid-night Saturday night (Aug. 11th), so if you haven't signed up, go on over to our Challenge Blog  and feel free to. We would love it!

This is me. This is something I love to do. I never go anywhere without a camera, I might miss THE shot!

This is how I'm working very hard to be.  I want to feel happy.
I am missing part of me,,,,,
I feel as though the best part of me is gone.
