28 May, 2010 -- Almost

Painted some more photos this evening, down around the pond.
Took these with cell phone, with flash. Had to Photoshop them.
They are so horrible, they are almost good. Almost.

27 May, 2010 -- More flying "what's it" things

Fireflies again tonight. These are all after dark, time exposures, by moonlight.
Should have done a "What's-it", huh?
Some of these are on KY3 TV Younews

26 May, 2010 -- Fireflies

There was lightning storm to the west, and to the north, and the fireflies were dancing out in the hay field. They are those little green specks in the foreground. The sky was clear with Venus in the western sky. Couldn't fit in the almost-full moon. These were time exposures, 30 to 40 seconds, that's why they are a little blurry. Didn't use a tripod, just braced the camera on the deck railing and guessed at the focus. Then kitty kept bumping into me, meeeooow, pay attention to meeee.

25 May, 2010 -- Rained again today, took a painting of it

Afternoon shower, it almost looks like a painting.

This is my bowling buddy Mickey. She's been chumming
a baby raccoon all spring. Mickey and Rickey seem to be
getting along fine. Don't run out of snacks!

24 May, 2010 -- Rained a year ago, too

My yard ornaments... LAD has a bumblebee, I've got a ladybug.

After a brief thunderstorm this afternoon, there was a partial rainbow. I tried to get it to flow into my potato garden but it didn't reach. Oh, well, it was pretty, anyway.

23 May, 2010 -- Eye see you

Stinker, the stray... he's growing fast, like the weeds around the house!

Eye see you!
Fonda and LAD and friend Janice were heading home from a weekend in Branson, Randy and I drove to Springfield to meet up for breakfast. Our stray kitty Stinker romped just before dark. Those would be good eyes to magnify!
