Birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it…

With apologies to Cole Porter…..Let's fall in Love…..

I love this time of year. There are so many neat insects to look at.

And a lot of them are busy doing what the song says they should be doing.

I spent twenty minutes recently just looking at all of the varieties of bugs hanging out in a batch of blooming milkweed.

Oh that's funny Rachel.
It made me lol and clap my little hands....


Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Maria.
Nature is just so cool.
I try to take a camera with me at all times.
Last friday I was walking without a camera and saw a MINK!!!

note to self: carry camera even when it's hot and you don't want to lug it around.....

As long as you're busy getting published and becoming a household name and all, you should submit some of your photos to... wherever one submits photos to. Speaking as one who is not, you are a talented photographer!

(Tattoo Highway takes photos...)

Karen from Mentor said...

Thanks Judy,
I'll look into submitting photos to tattoo highway. I love the short stories that you have published with them.

I'm discovering new things about you every day. Your Complete Profile doesn't do you justice. You really should list all your talents ... with photos of your trophies and ribbons.

Hey, aren't you the one who loves to "shamelessly self-promote"? :-) (sly reference to my own blog)

Karen from Mentor said...

That's me Linda, lol, shameless self promotion thy name is Karen.
I enjoyed quoting myself today at your place.

No ribbons, but I am working on hanging a show.

woo hoo, that'll be fun. I'll wear all black and try to look haughty and artsy.....yeah, that'll work what with the big grin I'd be sporting. Hard to look aloof when you're smiling like a goof....
