When I go out to take pictures I will probably take thirty to fifty photos depending on location, time, and my mood. By mood I mean that sometimes when I go out explicitly to take photos the lighting or my perceived notion of available subjects may dampen my enthusiasm and I basically give up; turn my camera off, reverse the lens hood on the lens, put the lens cap back on, and head home.
Anyway, out of all the shots I take I’m lucky if half are keepers based on in camera review. Then I may cull out a few may after I look at them on the desktop. Once I start processing the files I might delete a few more that no amount of processing is going to save. (I should still be deleting more than I do.) Not always, but often enough to be embarrassing, I might be down to ten or twenty-five percent, or even less, of the original number of photos taken. What all this means is that sometimes I don’t have enough photos from a shoot for a blog post, and this has been a long winded explanation of why I call this post Odds ‘n’ Ends. It’s a compilation of some of the onesies and twosies from multiple photo shoots.
I’m not positive but I’m thinking this probably a flesh fly. I say that because about the only two flies I ever see are flesh flies and bottle flies and I’m pretty sure it’s not the latter. As I drill down my thought process I see that I really just don’t know for sure and I’m pretty sure of that.
I’ve no idea what this is but I was intrigued by the little blue “nest” going on inside.
Just your typical photo of a sparrow sitting on a Siecor Optical Cable.
Looking down on the top of an unknown fungus that kind of looks like the sawed off end of a log.
Another fungus, this time a stinkhorn. I believe it is a Clathrus columnatus, also called a common stinkhorn. See my post Stinkhorn from May 2018 for a different stinkhorn. Oh yeah, I did see the ant while I was taking the photo.
Honeysuckle; not the bad kind.
Thank you for stopping by.
