6/24/16 Perch Pond

Another pretty day  - sunny  - 57 when we started and 69 when we finished. Some deer flies but no mosquitoes or black flies. A little rain last night so there were still drops on the plants.

In the small pond - my pant legs were already very wet so I didn't go down through the grass for a clearer picture.

 There were dragonflies landing on the little bridge at the end of the pond - not the best shots but first this year

I seem to have somehow got some kind of multiple exposure here- not on purpose and don't know how it happened.

In Perch Pond

I didn't see the crab spider until I processed the picture

Kelley did well today and took the lead at times. She even got in the pond at a spot she usually doesn't, use because it's more difficult for her to get out.   2 hours


  1. Sounds like a nice outing.
    Don't you just love those little surprises like the spider. There's always something neat out in Nature.
    Enjoy the day

    1. Thanks Sue - yes, those surprises come more often as my eyes get older

  2. What great nature you captured, John. That little crab is just cute and the double exposure is definitely a head-scratcher! How great that Kelley did something different. I don't know what it means, but I'm sure it's a good thing!

    1. Thanks Betty - I'm hoping some of what we are doing is working.
