The moon man has been at it again – but I “only” included four pictures of the moon this week. He also got some other great pictures that I’m not using – you’ll have to check out his blog here to see them (go over there – you need to see the dove!).

Our next door neighbor gave us this tiny little cypress tree. I think it has a way to go before it gets as big as its mom!

This was the day that I got up around 1:45 to see if I could see the Perseid Meteor Shower without any success. Dr. M got up around 4:00 & was able to get a few pictures. No meteors though :(
Pictures from the yard.

Tiny little hummer!

I found a new sheep farm on my commute to work – score!
Critters who love our marigolds…
I asked Dr. M to take a picture of the tomato-scape he had created. When I checked out the pictures on my camera I saw this – yikes!
And here are the tomatoes.

A coworker gave me some stale popcorn to give the birds. It was so funny watching them fly to the roof next door & try to wrangle the popcorn. It would start rolling down the roof & they would go hopping after it. Hilarious!
On his way back in from taking moon pictures Dr. M saw this little toad. We love our toads around here :)

I took a day off from work just because & decided to check an item off of my 50x50 list. I visited the local fen (my list says I have to visit during each season – I’ve been there in winter, spring & summer so far). The State of the Bug – happy!
Dr. M got out his toys to play with the cairn – ha!

We used to see hot air balloons all the time where we used to live, but now it’s a novelty. I like this one – it has Ohio themes (Wright Flyer, Dayton skyline, barn).
Dr. M sneaked & took this picture of me while I was looking at the balloon.
Wondering about the pirate flag? At that time of day the sun sneaks below the canopy of our swing so he decided to put up a barrier. Made me laugh when I saw it. He always likes to get this flag out when school starts. Wonder why? Ha!
|In case you can't read it - the flag says, "The beatings will continue until morale improves."|
Go to Mamma Fran’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
