Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Colorful Clouds at Dawn
I looked outside just after waking up to see the eastern sky starting to explode with colors. I ran outside with the first camera I could find with a wide-angle lens to capture the moment. The display didn’t last that long. I was so absorbed viewing the display, and taking pictures that I didn’t notice that an inquisitive young doe walked right up to me. When I finally noticed the deer, I think I was more startled than she was.
The statue for my bird bath is finally back in place. I tested the solar powered pump, but had to drain everything because of a hard freeze (16 °F/-9 °C) predicted for tonight. I don’t know if I will be able to use the bird bath again until next spring?
USPS 2006 X-Plane Express Mail Stamp (Canceled). I had never seen this stamp before. It was the postage on the express mail envelope that contained my renewed passport. Image taken with a Nikon D2xs and 105 mm f/2.8 mm macro lens (ISO 800, f/10, 1/60 sec, flash).
Tipsy Nisse Viking Warior wanabe in the late afternoon sun asking the question “Do I eat the magic mushroom, or watch the election results tonight?” Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 100-400 mm OIS lens (ISO 320, 400 mm, f/5.6, 1/200 sec).
But one has to ask the question — did he vote? One-year later he woke up wishing that it was all a dream…
I had been hearing loud noises in my basement. When I went down to investigate, found this mutant giant camel cricket. I don’t know what it has been eating to get this big, and cause it to glow in the dark. Maybe the radon seeping up from the Reading Prong???
