POTD: Examiner Encounters #2

Posted on

When I posted my first Examiner Encounter, I should have numbered it. I have a few of these things.

I climbed into a guy’s car for a road test and met his little friend. I asked him if he minded me taking a picture of it. He posed her a little bit for me. Then, I asked him “Favorite past-time?” “Nah.” was his response. “It was gift from a friend…a female friend, no less.”

This comes under the heading of “Things You Don’t See Everyday.” I DO miss this job sometimes. ~Vic

Shutterbug Saturday: Critter Collections Part III

Posted on

All photos and video are my personal collection. I'm surprised some of these turned out as well as they did. The first six were taken with a Samsung Alias II…an old flip phone. ~Vic

These long-legged things freak me out.

YUCK.

I had forgotten that I had some videos of critters, too. I was trying to sing like a child, just being silly.
Clark was not impressed.

POTD: Wash Me

Posted on

Well…I had intended to post about the 1959/1960 Payola Scandal that involved Dick Clark but, apparently, The History Channel can’t make up its mind which day it happened on. *sigh*

So, instead, Photo of the Day. ~Vic

Gassing up my truck, saw this and started to giggle.

Butterfly Image Three
Walking around town.
Poor focus but, still beautiful.
07-31-2016
Spider Image Four
This was a huge web with an equally huge spider.
Also a poor focus. I was keeping some distance.
My phone didn’t want to coöperate.
The tan blur in the center is said spider.

Spider Image Five
Another huge spider, hanging from the eave over the front porch.
A light rain highlighted the web.

Mole Image Eight
I believe this cute, deceased, furry thing is a mole but, I’m not totally sure.
The neighbor’s cat brought me a present.
10-21-2016
Preying Mantis Image Six
I nearly missed seeing this after finding the mole.
She is almost the same color as the table.
Preying Mantis Image Seven
This is the first Preying Mantis I’ve seen that was brown.
Most of the ones I have encountered, before, were green.

More to come…
