DW brought it home from the farmers market. From what I gather, it's a cross between cauliflower and broccoli. Very strange looking, but very tasty. 🙂(1 comments)See this image larger@KOSHIE1 'Scuse the noisy pic, but it's enlarged beyond where it should be in order to just get a look at the bird. It's the best shot I've been able to come up with as they are uncommon around here. Aside from the tuft and mask, the waxwing is pretty easy to tell from the cardinal, and yes, cardinal males are distinctly more colorful than females.(1 comments)See this image larger(2 comments)See this image largerSalamander eggs anyone? Went on a vernal pool hike today. Not very strenuous, but good activity and very interesting.(2 comments)See this image largerThese little Narcissus are only about an inch across. Everything is blooming here in Southern Pa which makes it a pleasure to take the camera for a long walk.See this image largerThere's a branch in the way, but still a good enough shot to identify the Eastern (Rufous) Towhee.See this image largerAzaleas abloom!See this image largerDogwoods in bloom on the Mason Dixon Line...

Forty five minute walk.(1 comments)See this image largerPhoto walk cut short today due to raindrops fallin' on my head. Love the color of this tulip:(1 comments)See this image largerRediscovered a walking spot. They have several walks from a half to a mile and a half, but also outdoor workout stations like this:(1 comments)See this image largerSpotted on a walk, tulips along a church wall: (1 comments)See this image largerToday's walk... pink snow? ... or where cherry blossoms go when it's over.See this image largerSpotted a different kind of tulip on today's walk:(1 comments)See this image largerA tiny mushroom forest spotted on the walk today:See this image largerAzalea spotted on the walk today:(1 comments)See this image largerDuring a hike around the Mont Alto campus of Penn State last week, we spotted this lion lurking about. He roars after the campus clock sounds the hour and it scared the crap out of both of us the first time we heard it.See this image largerSeen on yesterday's walk. Anybody have an idea what they are? They're about an inch and a half to two inches across.(1 comments)See this image largerOutdoor walk got rained out today, but here's an Iris from yesterday: (1 comments)See this image largerSlow walking today, but quite a few pix. Why they call it a 'Bleeding Heart'.See this image largerFrom yesterday's walk because we had rain today. Don't know what this one is? See this image largerKind of stark looking from one of the graveyards we pass through on some of our walks(1 comments)See this image largerI thought my walk would get rained out today, but I made it almost two miles and it was very comfortable walking at about 50°. Here's an Iris all huddled up after the rain:(1 comments)See this image largerGot my walk in between the rain drops yesterday. The locusts are starting to blossom: (1 comments)See this image largerToo windy for flower pix on my walk today, but fortunately caught some wildlife. I interrupted his dinner: (1 comments)See this image largerRevisited an old walking trail and it was a great day for it. The 'Dames Rocket' is in full bloom and we spotted a Kingbird which is kind of unusual for this area:See this image largerWe seem to have fewer ducks this year and this was the first clutch of babies I've seen this year. I spotted these on Monday's walk. I count eleven: See this image largerWent to the mountains for today's walk. Found these tiny mushrooms in a stump. They're only about 3/4 of an inch in diameter: See this image largerAnother flower discovered on yesterday's hike. Anenome? See this image largerFifty minute walk today. Saw this on the way: (1 comments)See this image largerDidn't get to walk today, but the Gazelle got a workout. Here's a walk pic from a couple of days ago. The variety of Iris we've seen this year is stunning!See this image largerWe've been visiting all the local parks we can think of for walking and many have large open area surrounded by trees which is ideal Robin habitat. This was the first juvenile I spotted this year. Although I took it with a long telephoto, I think I could have walked right up to him as he showed no signs of flying away. I think that flying thing is a little new to him? See this image largerZigzagged through the raindrops on my walk today. Lots of tiny roses in this one: See this image largerI was Micky Mouse today on my walk, do you see him? Somebody put a bug in his ear. See this image largerOur walk ended at a small car show today: See this image largerChoke Cherry? See this image largerToured the yard when we finished our walk and the ants have abandoned the peonies for the milkweed. Now we're waiting for Monarchs.See this image largerLong walk tonight. Got over an hour in. White Campion Flower? See this image largerDid some greenhouse shopping and walking today. One had it's own pest control system: See this image largerThe walk was cut short by rain and I had to do most of it on the Gazelle. I did stay out long enough to play with my new macro lens a little bit and I learned that insects are not anxious to pose for you. I think you can tell what this one is. I does keep me watching the milkweed for butterfly eggs, but so far, only ants: See this image largerLast evening was beautiful walking weather. Saw this new flower along the way. Anybody know what it is? See this image largerA pleasant spot for hiking and a picnic: See this image largerSpent extra time on the step glider today to make up for the walk getting rained out. Here's a flower from yesterday that I really liked the color of: See this image largerGot a walk in without getting wet last evening. I found this one growing in a new storm water runoff system installed by our municipality. Very pretty but I can't identify it: (1 comments)See this image largerWell, photography has forced me to learn a lot and this year is no different. I have noticed the ants running on the peony buds since I was a child and earlier this month I discovered them on buds of the milkweed flower as well. I've also noticed them on the trumpet vine but for whatever reason this is the first I've ever noticed them on the buds? Camera walks are fun and educational in addition to being good exercise: (5 comments)See this image largerFound the Bluebird of Happiness on our walk this evening. It's not the sharpest due to long zoom and low light, but thanks to DW's sharp eye I got a shot: See this image largerExercised indoors last night, but did get out in the yard for some pics. From one of the hanging baskets: (1 comments)See this image largerFound on a recent walk, they might not be the biggest Hydrangea I ever saw, but they're in the top ten: See this image largerThe walk got a little sweaty this evening as it was still in the mid-eighties, but we got nearly two miles in. Spotted this odd lily along the way: See this image largerIt rained pretty heavily from about noon till two today and we thought we would end up exercising indoors. Well, the rain stopped and DW wanted to visit a greenhouse we had heard about but never visited. It was huge. We got our outdoor mile in by just walking around the perimeter twice. They even had an orchid room: (1 comments)See this image largerDid our exercise indoors today, but took a walk in the yard. I have a whole new source of pics after our trip to the greenhouse on Saturday.See this image largerI only did a mike outdoors today and took no pics, but still shooting the backyard. We don't know if this one is a weed or what. We'll see when it blooms: See this image largerAnother orchid from Saturday's greenhouse trip: See this image largerWe kept the exercise indoors today due to t-storms and temps, but I still played in the yard a bit. The Pollinator Box is being overrun by Sunflowers and Squash: See this image largerThe unidentified hairy lily has developed some kind of berries or seeds? See this image largerWent to a State Park for our walk this afternoon and found this guy among the wildflowers outside the Ranger Station. We actually saw two about the same size. They must be fairly new to the world as they were only about an inch and a half long. This shot isn't perfect as I had to use manual focus, but I was tickled with it: See this image largerFrom yesterday's hike, I see the Teasel will soon be blooming and the butterflies love them. We only got a one mile walk done, but then spent another two hours wandering around at a car show. Very warm both yesterday and today.See this image largerHere's a common one from a previous walk that I've know for most of my life... Chicory. My great uncle was a coffee salesman back in the day when there was such a thing and his main brand was Luzianne, which bragged that it contained Chicory.(1 comments)See this image largerThe threat of rain kept us from our photo walk today, but I still played in the yard. The person who answered "Tiger Lily" to that unknown plant last week was correct as it bloomed today: See this image largerDidn't spend much time outdoors due to temps in mid-nineties, but I did get a few pics while I was out. We've lived here for over twenty years and have never seen ants in the house, yet every year they're all over the peonies then move to the trumpet vine and now the milkweed. They have a nectar route:See this image largerI've only been visiting the outdoors for periods and most of my exercise has been confined to the indoors, but I still get my vitamin D and and a few pictures. DW found what I beleive to be a cicada 4th instar nymph exoskeleton. Prehistoric looking: See this image larger"Tiger Tiger burning bright, In the forests of the night:" Tried the onboard flash on a new small camera that arrived Saturday. We just had some storms and I think the temp is finally headed down a little, but it's still quite humid: See this image largerCompleted my first outdoor walk in a couple weeks and then got rained on. Temps were actually below eighty. Caught this bee having lunch and what I thought was interesting was the shadows on the petal: See this image largerWalking was sweaty work today, but got a couple good pics. I liked the sun coming through this Canna leaf:See this image largerStayed indoors yesterday as the temp neared ninety and stuck to the Gazelle, stretching, and resistance. This one is from Friday, by any other name:(1 comments)See this image largerToo hot to hike so I stuck to the backyard again for pictures and to get my vitamin D. This petunia is called Paint Splatter. With the pollen dust and the white dots it kinda looks like a night sky to me:See this image largerBetter weather today, so we got a walk completed outdoors and took a new route where we ran into this bush/tree. I never saw one before (that I can remember) and thought is was stunning. I believe it's a Scarlet Crepe Myrtle, but I could be wrong: See this image largerWent to a different park today and got a walk in spite of the heat. Glad I dis as I found this guy waiting to pose for me: See this image largerMade it to the yard for a pic or two and some vitamin D, but too hot and too buggy for an outdoor walk. Here's a bug with a full load of pollen: See this image larger...and a really colorful flower(1 comments)See this image largerStill hot in the valley (90°) so I headed for the mountains and found a swarm of butterflies on my hike: See this image largerLake scene from yesterday's hike... the reflected clouds look like ice floating in the lake. No danger of that as it was in the mid-eighties even in the mountains:See this image largerSpent the day at home and exercised indoors Tuesday, but here's a pic from my trip to the reservoir on Monday. As nearly as I can determine it's a Calico Pennant (Celithemis Elisa) DragonflySee this image largerSeen on this afternoon's walk. (Silver Spotted Skipper?)See this image largerWe found a great new place to walk today and our butts are draggin', but well worth the effort. Many new plants, bugs, and birds. I swear this guy said, "what you lookin' at?": See this image largerNo pictures on my walk today since it was around the perimeter of a local shopping center, but I did find Jeff Goldblum in my garden when I got home:See this image largerPetunias in the yard since it's too hot to walk:See this image largerHad company today so all my walking was on a machine, but I did forget to post a pic of rainbow from Saturday. It was a double one, but the second one was almost gone by the time I got the camera. You can just barely see it coming into the top of the smokestack: See this image largerAre your children eating my kale? See this image largerGot a walk around the Master Gardener Exhibition area this afternoon and encountered this guy: Worm delivery?See this image largerAnother from today's walk. Passion Flower:See this image largerAnother one from the Master Gardeners plot: See this image largerWent back to the Master Gardener's plot today and checked on the nest box. Turns out there are at least two of them (Sparrows, I think?) I wonder if they'll make it this late in the Summer? See this image largerVisited City Park in a nearby town where they have a nice county Fine Arts Museum. We got our walk done in very pleasant surroundings today. I imagine it was no picnic setting these sculptures in the lake. What a beautiful day here on the Mason-Dixon Line!See this image largerWe didn't see as many Monarchs this summer but starting to see both adults and caterpillars on our milkweed now. Saw this lady on my walk today. Very pleasant at 75°:See this image largerLooks like he's been rolling in the pollen: See this image largerStayed indoors on the step glider today since it was pushing ninety again. Here's one from a previous walk. He may not be the prettiest bird, but it must be important one because it's got a band on each leg and struts when it walks. Top of the pecking order? See this image largerHere's one from last month that I forgot to put up that I wanted to share: See this image largerIt was the first day of nice walking weather in a while. About fifteen degrees lower temps and overcast skies and I got close to an hour. As the days grow shorter new flowers grow scarce: See this image largerGot nearly an hour of walking in today. Beautiful weather for it. Saw this guy along the way (Muddy Turtle):See this image largerGot nearly an hour of walking in today. Beautiful weather for it. Saw this guy along the way (Muddy Turtle):See this image largerSunflower seeds in the original packaging:See this image larger@CECELW - You'd love it here then, sunflowers everywhere:See this image largerMy walk took me to a college campus today where I found this fat little fellow getting ready for hibernation:See this image largerAnother shot from my campus walk yesterday. I was tickled with this one because I thought he was moving too fast and that I had missed the shot:See this image largerUp the crick without a paddle.See this image largerGot forty minutes of walking in between rain showers. The leaves are coming down:See this image largerOur walk today was productive for pics, both flora and fauna. Identified this guy pretty fast as a 'Locust Borer' using the Bing visual search (doesn't always work, but it's great when it does).(1 comments)See this image largerOne from yesterday's walk, I think it's called "Fried Egg Plant" or "Gordonia"? Whatever it's name, it's another one the ants like:See this image largerStayed near home for my walk today as it was back into the high eighties. Saw this little lady flitting about and and accused her children of eating my cabbage. She ignored me.See this image largerVisited a historic site for my walk today and found more teasel with added color around it:(1 comments)See this image largerI took the new camera for a walk today and tricked myself into some 'extra' exercise. Part of it was in escaping this highly trained attack duck. Okay, not really. He was just mooching food: See this image largerHike around the Penn State and Master Gardener's display area again. Still some butterflies and many flowers. Aster?See this image largerSee this image largerHere's a Bee and Butterfly from Friday's visit to the greenhouse. We got out today, but not much over a mile as it was pretty hot again. Made up for it on the step glider:See this image largerAll my exercise was indoors, but I did get my vitamin D doing some errands. It's mum time:See this image largerAll my exercise was indoors today because the plumbers were here all day. I had do dig up some busy work and decided to do some housekeeping on my picture files. Found this one of some white stuff laying on a dead Queen Anne's Lace from about fifteen years ago in the dark ('cause it was getting dark around 5pm). Coming soon for a neighborhood near you!See this image largerStretched the walk to over an hour today while playing with a different lens on my camera. Here's some fall bird food that I imagine will fast disappear so it will soon be time to start feeding them again.(1 comments)See this image largerNo hike today but the Gazelle got an extra workout. The garden is still popping out flowers: (1 comments)See this image largerKept the exercise indoors today as it was 90° and sunny. Call this a 'warm' Autumn day:See this image largerTook our daily hike in a small memorial park with lots of trees. Less about flowers and much more about leaves and seeds today:See this image largerI get kind of stuck on a theme, but I really liked this one from today. My walk to the Post Office stretched into forty five minutes, so I did a little sweating too.See this image largerSpotted on today's walk. Seeds of the Evodia or 'Bee Tree', I think.See this image largerWhat a beautiful day for walking... 64° and sunny. Kept me going almost an hour. I'm still finding flowers to shoot. I didn't have to go far for these, in the backyard:See this image largerSpotted on yesterday's walk. Changing: See this image largerBeautiful walking weather today. Still some balloon flowers blooming:See this image largerEach day I begin my walk thinking the flowers are about over and yet, they keep popping up:See this image largerVisited an old church, an Autumn Color Festival, and a car show. I might hit 18k steps! Here's something different. I forgot to look at the window tag, but my guess is a 1947 Diamond T: See this image largerEnding a day at the lake, plenty of steps:See this image largerBack to a different lake today and we got lots of steps. My first eagle pic in the wild that you can tell it's an eagle. Many nice scenic shots. Here's one that shows the colors are changing, but not at peak yet in south central PA: See this image largerFrom Tuesday's walk as Wednesday was rainy. An overlook I've been visiting for decades affords a beautiful view of our side of the Tuscarora Mountain and has as long as I can remember. Some time since I was last there they've done some logging and now I can see the other direction for the first time in all those years:(2 comments)See this image largerMet on my walk today. It turned into a run!See this image largerWe're having beautiful weather and I couldn't pass up the opportunity for a short walk this afternoon. On the way back into the house I noticed one of our Gerbera Daisies has decided to bloom again:See this image largerMy walk often takes me to a nearby church and every time I walk through this churchyard I expect that all the flower beds will be cleaned out and finally most of them are except for a couple of tiny tea roses. This about an inch in diameter:See this image largerStationary bike? See this image largerI don't know what kind, but I noticed the leaves on this tree while walking this afternoon. I thought the changing colors mixed with the sun and shadow made an interesting shot:See this image largerHad a nice walk yesterday. Still finding flowers here and there:See this image largerBeautiful walk today in near perfect weather, but that will end late Thursday when the cold reaches Pennsylvania. Just short of two miles today and another forty five minutes on the Gazelle. Roses spotted on the walk, they just keep blooming:See this image largerEver have one of those days when you just can't get all your ducks in a row? I did manage a forty-five minute walk and forty-five on the Gazelle.See this image largerFrom Friday's walk, I think an Eastern Phoebe?See this image largerPerfect weather for a walk today and I got in over an hour, but no real photo ops so I'll give you a shot of something that can empty a bird feeder in mere hours... the flying pigs: See this image largerFinished about a forty-five minute walk and when I passed the feeders on the way into the house I thought I spotted something different, so I went in and waited and sure enough, a Carolina Wren showed up.See this image largerSince I did all my exercise indoors yesterday (no walk due to pretty heavy rain) I'm posting one I forgot from Monday. This guy was hiding from me. He eventually figured it out: See this image largerDaily reflection from our walk:See this image largerLazy day for me today. I just barely hit 10k steps. With the leaves gone, you can now see the nasty thorns on the locust trees again:
