Feeling spiritual today. Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, and Taoism have always enthralled me. Something about the artwork just calms the senses. I love the bright colors of the Indian artistry and how it makes you feel happy just looking at it. The calming serene landscapes of the Asian portraits do much to ease away stress. I wish I knew more about them, especially from someone who knows about them first hand. I do miss that about Houston. There were so many people from so many parts of the globe there, especially India. :-/
WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
Well automated Tumblrbot, Id have to say that sleep does!
Luna Moth (Actias luna) Female 11:40pm on 8/12/13 in Fayetteville NC
Found a couple of Barn Orb Weavers tonight, decided to shoot em as I can never get enough spider photos! I also found this odd unknown insect tonight. Turns out to be a Pickleworm Moth (Diaphania nitidalis).
Shepherd was jealous from all the attention the new kitty was getting…so I took his pics to make him happy. LOL
Our newest addition to our family. He doesnt have a name yet. He was sadly already 100% de-clawed and I just felt horrible about not giving him a home. Hes a pretty chatty cathy, and has a monster set of lungs on him that he loved demonstrating to me during his bath.
This is the same Orange Tipped Oakworm individual from last night, only shot in the morning light. I thought the morning light really brought out its true colors. He hadnt moved at all since I had last shot him.
1. Scudderia furcata - Fork-tailed Bush Katydid
2. Anisota senatoria - Orange-tipped Oakworm
3. Corydalus cornutus - Dobsonfly (Eastern)
4. Epimecis hortaria - Tulip-tree Beauty
On our way home from the Estate, John decided to take me to a place he used to go as a kid to swim. Im glad he did, but I wasnt happy about the mosquitoes that inhabited the place!
Just like Overhills, there were TONS upon TONS of butterflies. Majority being Spicebush Swallowtails (Papilio troilus). All swirling around me while I tried in vain to take their photo. It was possibly the most girly and majestic feeling Ive felt in awhile.
On our way back to the Trailblazer I found this cool mossy stump. Upon closer inspection I noticed two slugs just hanging out, you know, doing slug stuff. They were gorgeous.
