|This yarn breaks all the rules of light and color manipulation. Sorry, I am unable to get a true picture of their color, it's that damn yellow that just refuses to play nice.|
|This picture is a bit more color true but still not good.|
So, let's discuss Michigan. It got hot the other day. Crazy hot. It went form 50's to 80's. Just for a day though. That was between thunderstorms (which I'm loving). One woke me up with the lightening. It was great!
But before we got there we saw lot's of green and other colors.
I do have to apologize, being in the rain I didn't want to take the good camera out and it's becoming more and more apparent that the little one is dying. Fewer and fewer shots are in good sharp focus. I'm going to have to give it up at some point and replace it, but it's so nice and small and fits in my pocket so nicely.
Who doesn't love dandelions?!? They're so cheerful when they're not in your own yard.
Speaking of the little camera, we caught sight of a heron out there but I didn't have the big camera with me so this is as good as it gets.
Look close and you can see how hard it was raining on us.
Several times I tried to catch the sounds that are out there on a rainy day and despite not being able to capture the sound of the spring peepers, here is what I did get.
Here that constant trilling sound in the background, that's frogs! I was trying to get this quick before another jet went over our heads towards the airport.
Just after I was able to get that little clip is when the wind came up and the next squall line hit us and we hoofed it back to the car. On the way though I stopped to snap a photo of this little guy as he crossed the trail ahead of us. I'm sure I will hair these guys when I get a garden going but I like seeing them down by the river. Means things are in good shape, and the shrikes like to eat them.
Okay everyone, have a good Saturday. I need to head out.
