FRIDAY NIGHT DISTRACTIONS

(midnight. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

I`m a little early today.

I have to go to a beach ceremony for the passing of a friend.

These images are my distracting offerings this weekend.

I do have to thank all those who do comment or ask questions.

The wood carvings of the ladies are those bequeathed to me by a neighbor who took her life.

I put necklaces on them to photograph.

I think I`ll start with an Emerald Scarab.

I found this one a few miles from home, but due to unusual circumstances I did not have one of my cameras.

I put it inside my hat & was bugged all the way home with it wandering around on my head inside my hat.

  1. Please remember I post these for you.

    They may be a gentle reminder that we can`t be too serious about what we read & hear in the news that is not always news, but mostly disappointing fear.

    I will answer all comments or queries, about anything including these images.

    I post these for you & don`t need points, mojo, nor karma.

    It`s way too late for that.

    Use your time well, & have a great week end.

    awesome distractions…. as always!

    how do you capture the hummers so well?

    it’s probably that i don’t have a very good camera but…..

    i can’t ever get shots like yours.

    here is my latest hummer attempt:

    i yearn for pictures like yours.

    …only time to complete the graphic for tonight’s poem.

  2. I’m in love — with each of these photos of yours — how diverse, how beautiful and wonderful.  

    Like RiaD, I’ve been on a mission with “hummers” for a couple of months — yep, been “stalkin'” them!  

    They’ve gotten considerably braver as time goes on, once one was kinda’ dancin’ in front of the window that I was looking out of.  I thought it was just a “fluke” until it happened several more times.  Now, I’ve even had some flying overhead and “humming” and within 3 feet of me.

    I’ve been noting their activities as well!  Very interesting!  Sometimes, while one hummer is taking the nectar, another will come along and shag him/her away.  Happens a lot.  I note, too, that each of them take a little and then go for a “rest” only to return soon thereafter to the nectar.  Aw, nature — our blessing!

    My thanks to you, as always, for sharing the nature and so much with us.

    P.S.  Think I’ll post a couple of hummers up by RiaD’s comment — she was brave enough, so I should be brave enough! 🙂

    P.S.S.  The “bad hair day” photo is that of bee balm — hummingbirds and butterflies adore it!  

  3. ….for the lovely distractions tonight. The emerald scarab is such an amazing color. The image of it walking on your head inside your hat makes me smile.

    I’ve been watching so much coverage of the ceremonies for Senator Kennedy. I am very sad for the loss of my Senator, but seeing your pictures lifted my spirits.

    My “point and shoot” camera has never gotten pictures of this quality. Would you mind sharing the name and model of your favorite camera?

    My condolences to you on the death of your friend. And thanks again for the distractions tonight.

  4. Creativity and imagination.  I just realized this is one of the characteristics I enjoy most about your work — viewing a fish rhrough a magnifying glass, a tree through a horseshoe mirror, and putting necklaces on statues—these are the whimsical, magical quirkinesses I enjoy.

    Thanks again, Knuck!
