Cicada emerging

Here’s a sweet new photo of a cicada emerging from its shell.
It’s kind of symbolic of the emergence of Spring.

NORTHERN FENCE LIZARD

Their average total length is 5 inches so I had to get very close and be very patient to snap this lizards profile. They are grayish-brown with dark markings across the back and tail. This is a common forest-dwelling species that often lives around country homes and rock gardens. Their choice of split rail fences and stacks of firewood as places to live gave this species its name. They can escape capture by running up a tree.  I hope every one enjoys this weeks wildlife photo, stop by again real soon.

Black Rat Snake.

Black Rat Snake.

Black Rat Snake.

I found this Black Rat Snake making its way through the leaf cover on the forest floor. After I startled the snake it climbed a rather small nearby tree affording me an opportunity to take this photo . Black Rat Snakes are non-venomous but may bite if handled carelessly, however, the ones I have encountered took to handling quite well and did not bite. These snakes are relatively slow-moving and range in size from 32 to 72 inches, I have encountered specimens in excess of 6 feet. Rat snakes are our friends and help control the rodent populations.

These two Luna Moths were on the shed behind my house on two separate occasions during the summer of 2011. They were very cooperative subjects so I took many pictures of them. Years ago I collected moths like some people do butterflies. Now I just capture them on pixels. I believe it is a better way to enjoy their beauty. Here is a LINK to my store if you are interested in seeing more critters from my frog pond or perhaps buying a postcard to support the efforts here at Buckobecks..

And The Darkness Comes

AND THE DARKNESS COMES

 

The sun is stealing away with her riot of colors, the last traces of light bathing the clouds and the contrails of mighty metal birds in soft pastels.
Glowing gently as she slowly sinks into the earth.
Taking with her the promise of a new day and the explosion of activity that her coming brings.
Leaving the landscape featureless and black. Cold and still.  And with her departure, a certain sadness.
But the darkness has a purpose, and a beauty too.
The moon rises from the ebbing blues and pinks, bringing with her a billion points of flickering light that shine from the farthest reaches of heaven.  Shimmering, twinkling sisters of the sun that are never seen with her.
Bestowing upon you her quiet calmness, yet denying you the detail of a tree.
Pale and serene, distinctly different from her blazing opposite.
The quiet misunderstood one,  bathing the world in a her soft  reflection of  borrowed  light.
Alone, even though surrounded by a billion tiny suns.

Field Mouse.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D-50 and was armed with a Nikkor Micro 200mm lens.

He was an ornery little cuss and even bit me once while I was attempting to photograph him. I guess he didn’t like my company. Enjoy the fruits of my physical and mental suffering.
