It's time for the Saturday Snapshot!
This week's assignment doesn't have a simple title, it has four steps:
1. Select something that is esthetically pleasing,
2. has unique lighting somehow,
3. something you have not photographed before,
4. and then I want you to greyscale it, and post both to show a contrast.
Flowers on the way to this cache.
I came around the corner on the way back to my car from this cache when I saw a duck.
Another picture I took while geocaching on Sunday.
This'll probably be the last Geocaching picture for the two of us for a while. Being that we don't live in the same city any more! We just had to visit our cache one last time together before I left.
Since massive amounts of Geocaching is going on while I'm home I needed to stock up on the little frogs I leave in caches. So a side trip to Michael's was included in today's searching (and finding!) of 5 caches.
Syn took this one, not me, being that I'm in the picture and everything.
Here's one that was left in a cache Saturday night.
I probably could have used this one for the "wrong" theme as well. Is it pure water? Or is it a dump station? It's both!
For Photo Friday.
The landscape of an ant!
I was in the middle of posting this when I realized it worked for today's Photo Friday! I thought it was really cool when I stumbled across these guys in the midst of enjoying themselves. ;) Although, I wonder if something with a brain as primative as a moth's would really have a concept of "enjoying" anything... Well, it was certainly cool to see at any rate! At least I thought so.
Just some tracks I was walking along while hunting for a cache on Thursday morning. It was all warm and misty and the tracks looked like they went on forever until disappearing into mist.
Found this little guy while geocaching today. Little bitty toads are cool!
Absolutely beautiful sunset last night at the last cache I hunted. I didn't find it, but that's ok. All part of the game!
I haven't the faintest idea what this is, Keva and I found it while out caching. I'm hoping someone at the Ark can help me out! There were a coupld of them that we saw. It was maybe an inch across. I'm assuming something was inside, but I wasn't about to break it open!
Update: Thanks to the extremely helpfull bug-dude at What's That Bug I now know it is a praying mantis egg case! How cool!
Believe it or not, those are Monk Parakeets. In Warwick, Rhode Island! All of my Ark entries this week are from geocaching trips. Heh. We were coming back towards the car after finding one and heard something scolding us from a tree. Keva saw them first and did the "What the...?" There aren't supposed to be green birds in Rhode Island! Somehow these little guys are able to survive the winters here and it totally made my day to see them!
Another geocaching discovery. It's an itty bitty jellyfish! There was a second one nearby that was bigger, but my pictures of it turned out like orange blobs so baby jellyfish pictures it is!
Here's the top view too:
And a bonus... jellyfish in action! (right click, save-target-as, please!)
