Week 22. 16. Macro

I’m going out on a limb here (pun – sort of) – guessing this is a Longhorn Crazy Ant!  It looked like it had 8 legs which couldn’t be right, and then I found that two of the legs were actually it’s antennae.  I think.  Anyway – he and his friends were very busy checking out the flowers at Selby Gardens!

Week 18. 45. Underneath

Took this Geckos photo at the Cincinnati Zoo … such a beautiful color.  I googled them for a quick bit of info – well there is SO much but this bit I found particularly interesting …. I find it fascinating that nature can teach us SO much.

“Geckos can quickly turn the stickiness of their feet on and off, a new study finds.Gecko toes are well-studied and their sticky properties have inspired some incredible technology, such as stitch-free ways to seal wounds and sticky handheld paddles that may help soldiers scale walls someday. For the past decade, researchers have been developing synthetic adhesives with nanoscale fibers designed to mimic bristly gecko toes.”

Week 17. 47. Waiting

I fear I have got too far behind to catch up but when I look back to my posts from almost 5 years ago when this all started, it’s just such fun to look back – I know I was pretty “chuffed” with my first photo!

Well this is our lovely fur grandson Wembley … he was patiently waiting for his “dad” to come back into the house. He’s a beautiful, sweet, kind dog.
