Mountain Dew

I’m back!

Oh, Happy Day.

Sort of. I mean, really, I didn’t go anywhere. I just took a break.

I didn’t get a whole lot done either.

Work has been crazy busy. Plus, we decided to hang out at the WV place all last week. So, no progress on projects at the MD house.

It was a great week in WV, though. We didn’t really want to come back. But now that we’re here, it’s good to be home.

I don’t have a whole lot to say, really.

But I took quite a few pictures last week.And if I don’t share them here, they’ll just be stuck in my computer, unseen, forever.

So here goes…

If you’re not really interested in looking at pics, you might want to stop reading now. Because there’s lots of ’em.

Now, to really appreciate these pics, you should click on each for a larger view so you can see the detail. They’re cool, if I do say so myself.


Snake! Not a great picture, but one I had to share. It was about 6 feet / 2 meters long.
Ladybug (in bright morning sun).
Another ladybug. (Diffuse, soft morning light.)
Small butterfly on thistle.
Butterfly or moth? You tell me. I have no clue.
Slightly larger butterfly.


On a Dewy Mountain Morning

Drippy leaf.
Another drippy leaf.
Wet grass.
Wet pine.
Big drip.

Interestingly colored berries.
My favorite dew shot.


I love how the sun makes the berries translucent.

These berries are some of the few bits of color currently in the forest other than green.
Drippy berries.
Not sure if this is a diseased version of the same tree that has the red berries, but I love the color of these particular berries.

The plants weren’t the only things covered by dew…

  1. I’ve missed your wonderful photography skills. My favorite dewy pictures is the same as yours. And your ladybug pictures should be in National Geographic. Great pics! Welcome back!
