I prefer this!

Winter is not far away.

Before we left, the trees on this mountainside had lost a lot of their leaves. More and more snow was accumulating on the taller mountain tops. It was raining more often. Thankfully the temperature warmed during the rain...but for how long? We did not know. Not wanting to get caught in a large snowfall, we came home. HOT! I prefer this.

Crisp and Clearing

We went to Silverton Colorado for our vacation.

This morning it had been raining. Just as we started on the downside of the pass the rain cleared up and presented us with this magnificent sight.

Itsy Bitsy Spider

Wise spiders will weave webs wonderfully well. I wonder if that is a yellow jacket? One can only hope.

Dragon of the Insect World

so called because they are such fierce hunters. This one rode into my computer room on my purse. What I want to know is, if it is so ferocious, why didn't it eat the yellow jacket.
