The Tree of Life -Gulf Fritterary

Above is our Dwarf Powder puff bush, we had a bad storm last Thursday and the wind blew it over and the top fell into the pool. It is in a pot, and is alive, but the leaves all turned brown. UPDATE: I created the post a week ago, the tree is now dead.

Late in the afternoon, I stood looking at the leaves, and broke a piece to see if it is green inside. A gulf Fritterary almost sat on my camera a couple of times, then landed and just hung there.

Soon there were three of them hanging and settling in for the night. My friend told me several years ago to watch where they land at night because that is their roost and they will return again and again.

Standing 10 feet away with wings closed, they were perfectly camouflaged. The one below kept beating its wings and I managed one decent shot of them open. With the small camera I had to get to close and it upset them.

Come Home to Mama Rebel  DSLR.. I am waiting. (waiting two weeks now)

Jurassic Wal-Mart

Bob went with me to Wal-Mart at 5 AM Sunday because he needed Pool chemicals that are to heavy for me to pick up. I patiently led him to the  Windshield  Washer Fluid, The Pool Chemicals, The lawn mower spark plugs and last but not least the Windshield wiper blade for my Kia.

He impatiently waited at the end of the aisle while I madly snapped the 4 inch Jurassic Park figures.  He actually shook his head in amazement when he walked down to where I was and saw the object of my camera lens.

NOTE: When we entered the store, I said you go get your items and I will get the canned air I need and come meet you in automotive. He said no, I need you to read the tiny print for me. (He never remembers his reading glasses)

The good news is.... I would have missed Jurassic if I had not followed him to automotive.. and YOU would have missed this POST...
