The sky was cloudy, but the weather report said it wouldn’t rain until tomorrow. This time I set up four cameras to record the fire flies. Let me know which ones you like/dislike. It took a lot longer to process the images than the time I slept while the pictures were being taken.
Backyard (and Indoor) Early Spring Nature in New Jersey.
The snow had stopped by the time I woke up. It looked like 6-8 inches. It was fluffy and light, not like the wet & heavy stuff we got with the 2nd Nor’easter. Some images of the snow-covered patio, with a charcoal grill waiting for real spring weather. Then the trees damaged by the previous storm. As for indoor nature, I am still finding some stink bugs (but not the green ones). By the afternoon, the snow slid off the solar panels, and I was generating electricity. The snow on the driveway and front entry was melting fast so I didn’t need to get the shovel out. As fast as the snow is melting, I wouldn’t be surprised if there is some local flooding over the next couple of days. Hopefully, this will be the last Nor’easter this spring.
Individual images from the slide-shows can be viewed here.
Indoor Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Mutant Green Cricket
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???
