Going, going …

Look!  Up in the sky.  It’s a bird.  It’s a plane.  No, it’s … oh yeah, it is a plane.


Rudbeckia Bud

Green Bottle Fly


These utility wires and cables that run behind all houses in all the older suburbs of St. Louis are basically the equivalent of an interstate highway system for squirrels.


One more dahlia.


Thanks for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and, excepted where noted otherwise, a Nikkor 80-400mm telephoto zoom lens.
