Sunny exits stage right



I realized, as I pushed the appropriate button in the bank of door uppers and downers, I’ve never taken a picture of the sunflower with our town hall as a backdrop.  It is a wonderful building, wonderfully conserved.


Sunny was a little chewed up today.  Someone’s buffet.  I expect next week there will just be a hole in the pavement.


I looked under at the flower, and found a fat grasshopper.  He probably has not read Aesop’s Fables.


And on the sidewalk into the office, a dragon fly.  He was hard to snap.  When I moved, he moved.  So, we danced a little on the sidewalk in the sun before I went into work.

  11. Wonderful, wonderful shot of the dragonfly. The murdering grasshopper - and it is amazing how much one hopper can eat did indeed look quite plump.

  14. Interesting finds you've got :D

    I read somewhere that a sunflower's life only lasts for a month... and the seed falls down on the ground to produce new seedlings.
