Close Up






This bass is going to be a nice meal. It is amazing when snakes disjoint their mouths to swallow huge prey. The fish is about four inches long.
A smaller one watches


A relative identified this cup pattern as her mothers, passed down to a grand- daughter, probably from the 60's. We all laughed and wondered what box of laundry soap or grocery store passed these out for "free". The coffee tasted even better, out on the prairie.


Henry,

Looks so pale
Or is it me a little gray?

  1. Such lovely pics of flora and fauna.. yours always are. Those cups.. I think they were from a set of Corning ware. I have definitely seen that pattern in the long ago.

  2. The dragonfly shots are awesome and that snake eating the fish is just fascinating.
    I remember getting dishes from the gas station with a fill up.

  3. Your coffee cup? We bought the whole set in the seventies and are still using them. They didn't come out of a soap box.

  4. Hi There, Bet that coffee is better on the prairie.... We had some terrible coffee on our trip ---so that is another reason we had to hurry home to get some GOOD coffee. ha ha

    I think I recognize that coffee cup pattern... AND--it may have come out of detergent at one time... Wonder if my family also had them????? ha

    Great macro shots... I got a good one (which I will blog about sometime) on our trip of a HUGE dandelion-like wildflower going to seed... Have no idea what it was --but it is gorgeous up close and personal.

    Cute grandbaby.....
    Hugs,

  5. Dragonflies seem to be the theme of the day. I especially like the one with the square wings. Funny about the cups and detergent. Remember getting towels in detergent? The detergent clung to them and sometimes there was enough for a whole load of wash stuck to them.

  6. Lovely pictures.

    And the baby isn't so much pale as he is brand new. Probably still got that new baby smell. :-)

    I bet that coffee on the prairie is very relaxing.

    Sweet baby.

  10. great pictures. I found one of those dragonflies in the top few pictures on the driveway, already dead, being swarmed by ants. I shook them off and brought it in and now it sits on the shelf above my sink until it gradually disintegrates.
