This rather large katydid stopped by for a visit one night. As you can see, unfortunately my camera skills were not up to the challenge of capturing an in-focus picture. Maybe one day!
I have an admitted fondness for taking off down the interstate, driving for miles and miles on smooth paved roads. But sometimes, it's taking the slow and bumpy dirt roads that get you to where you want to be.
Just the most fluffy and soft looking moss growing on a tree in a local campground. I did pause to get this picture, but we did not stay too long, because there was a growl that was probably not but possibly was a bear. (And the side of the campground we were on had absolutely nobody else there - so wonderful and peaceful, but presumably for animals as well as people. We decided caution was the better choice.)
Can you spot the grasshopper among the dirt and leaves? In late September, these guys were everywhere as we went on our walks!
Can you spot the grouse sitting in the tree? Cooed at us cutely for quite a little while before taking off into the sky!
