THERE IS A CREATOR

TLTR
SECOND SNAKE OF THE SEASON--WATER SNAKE--THE FIRST WAS THE BLACK SNAKE PIC. I KNOW KNOW WHERE HE LIVES AND WILL TRY TO GET JEANNIE'S PIC OF HIM SWALLOWING ONE OF THE MANY FROGS! (SORRY--NOT RATS JEANNIE!)
YES--I WAS THIS CLOSE (2-3 FEET MAX), MY OPTICS ONLY GO TO 5X TOTAL!!!!


DO MY KNEES MAKE MY BUTT LOOK BIG? (Notice the QUALITY 12 y/o computer desk!)

CRASH LANDING = DEATH BY WATER. IT'S VERY LIFE SOURCE AND IT ENDS UP DEAD IN IT. CIRCLE OF LIFE.

DRAGONFLY laying eggs-She did this in 3 different areas for about 5 minutes!
The Beginning.
DRAGONFLY EMERGES FROM HOUSE!

LEAVES HOME FOR COLLEGE AND LIFE. JUST A SHELL OF IT'S FORMER SELF


Yep-another one and a story!!! THE MIDDLE

COLORIZED VERSION- (SEE the Little Blue Dude at the top of the pick?
That is what landed on me! ( Didn't know he was there did you?) Me neither till I downloaded the pic!!)

THE STORY

I TOOK HOPE OUT TO MAKE MORE WHITE DOO-DOO FOR AMMUNITION AGAINST HEFF. I CLEAN HERS UP--SO THAT WON'T HAPPEN...BUT OF COURSE I DIGRESS.

I WALKED TO THE FENCE (CHAIN LINK), AND OUTSIDE THIS FENCE, UP AGAINST IT, IS AN OLD GALVANIZED WASHTUB. I HAD 5 GENERATIONS OF BEAUTIFUL JAPANESE IRIS'...THAT FINALLY DIED. I HAD THEM FOR 18 PLUS YEARS (10 HERE), AND THEY WERE GIVEN TO ME WITH A HISTORY GOING BACK WHO KNOWS HOW LONG, BUT 4 GENERATIONS AT LEAST!

You can see the caps lock affliction is permanent!

Anyway, there is mostly mud in this with about 3-4 inches of water depending on the rainfall---IT IS FILLED!!!

It is rife- with MALARIA and WEST NILE MOSQUITO'S & LARVAE. So,- why don't you move it John.  Shut up!

I keep hoping against hope that after 3 years my Iris will magically return--(I'M LAZY)

I leave it out for all the critters, Bee's, Wasp's, Lizards, Birds--to DRINK. (I'M LAZY)

This is Nirvana for two of the Little Blue Mosquito Hawks--In FL, we called them Mosquito Hawks, because it sounds less threatening and more environmentally friendly, than DRAGONFLY'S...

SO THIS BLUE DUDE IS FLYING AROUND, AND IS LITTLE LEARY OF THIS GIANT THING THAT WALKS UP. BUT THEN HE STARTS LANDING ON TOP OF THE FENCE WITHING ARMS LENGTH.  

SWAT- KILLED HIM FIRST SLAP!!!! THE END!

OK, SO THAT'S BS!

What I did do- was observe in awe, at how He adjusted his wings on the fence post. He'd land, lower both pairs a little and settle down, perfectly still. Then the wind picked up. HE DID NOT BUDGE.....He simply evened out his top pair, rotated and lowered, his shorter bottom pair to compensate for the change......the wind blew right through him!

And he called the wind- MARIAH! .....this will hit later!

I know we got our Helicopter tech from this dude. So I started fu...messing with him. I would take my finger,  slowly get it closer to him, move it up, down....all around (did the Hokey Pokey and I..  into his complete field of view, inches from him and right in front of his face. NO REACTION!!!! He finally took off to hunt so I put my finger where he had last landed. He came back and landed on the next loop of the Fence....

GRAB--SQUASH--I GOT HIS BUTT- SO MUCH FOR TRUST IN THE ANIMAL KINGDOM AND THAT'S WHY WE ARE AT THE TOP OF THE FOOD CHAIN..AS I LOOKED AT HIS CRUSHED BODY....

OK-OK- SO IT ISN'T FUNNY ANYMORE.  BUT,

HE AGAIN TOOK OFF, CAME BACK AND LANDED ON MY FINGERTIP----THE BIG "O!!  IT WAS AWESOME!

I MOVED MY HAND AND HE STAYED THERE WITH NO FEAR!!! I MOVED HIM TO WITHIN INCHES OF MY FACE AND STUDIED HIM. I COULDN'T SEE HIM AT ALL, BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE MY READING GLASSES ON, BUT I STUDIED HIM CLOSELY!

ONCE AGAIN I MOVED MY FINGER, AFTER HE TOOK OFF TO HUNT, TO A DIFFERENT PLACE 4 OR 5 HOLES IN THE FENCE, DOWN AWAY FROM THE TOP....... AND STUCK IT THROUGH TO SEE WHAT WOULD HAPPEN. 

THAT'S WHEN THE SNAKE STRUCK-----

NO IT DIDN'T..... THERE WAS NO SNAKE....

YES!!!!- HE CAME BACK AND LANDED ON MY FINGER AGAIN--NOT, THE FENCE! 

THIS  SEEMED TO GIVE HIM A BETTER ADVANTAGE OVER HIS HUNTING GROUNDS.

Caps- lock affliction and font color change, not intended...... it takes me hours to type out a post!
MY WIFE CAME OUT, HE LIT ON MY FINGER...I MOVED IT TO HER FACE, SO COULD ENJOY THE CREATION!  SHE LOOKED INTENTLY INTO HIS EYES, AND IT DIED.

We both enjoyed the experience very much and were left KNOWING that there HAS to be a MASTER CREATOR. I call HIM GOD!

Even nature it's self is proof to those that haven't heard the Word, so there is no excuse....
..to paraphrase the Bible.

It's my blog and I can Preach if I want to,

NO--SHE DID NOT UGLY IT TO DEATH--SHE IS BEAUTIFUL....AND MY WIFE AIN'T BAD NEITHER!!
