Striebel Pond Yesterday

I know I know. You're tired of seeing more Striebel Pond activity. But, in my defense, it is my journal and I'm powerless to quit. I just can't go out there with a camera and not take pictures. It seems like there's always something interesting to photograph. Certainly the aerobic integrity of my walk is compromised every time I stop to take a picture but I do it anyway. Ultimately, I'm still walking 3 1/2 miles, and except, for those moments when I stop to snap a pic, I walk pretty fast.

In Friday's post I said I would post pictures of other things I saw, today. Here they are.

Don't you just love that they have drinking fountains for dogs?

I thought there were some really beautiful growing things:

And some really interesting flying things:

Including this one. I know it sounds crazy but I've been trying for days to capture a flying dragonfly. It's very challenging because they zigzag all over the place. Finally I had some success. It's not the best picture ever but it's a double. I wonder how and why they were flying together like that. (You really might HAVE to click on this one to see it better. Then just hit the back arrow on your browser to return.)

And then there was this growing thing with a flying thing on it.

Okay, that's it. Didn't I capture a lot of fascinating things? They were to me anyway. And I know when Rhonda, Nancy and I walk out there, we won't see a thing worth photographing.

Isn't that just the way it goes?


  1. I still can't believe I've never been there or really even gotten a good look at it, but when I see all of your pictures, it really makes me want to go there. There are so many interesting things to see. The dragonfly picture is really cool. I can't believe you got it!

  2. qowow...that purple flower shot is amazing! keep them coming, one can never get enough pictures of nature

  3. WOW, what beautiful shots!! All of them! That 3rd one made me stop and scroll back up. It is so sharp! I love it! :-)


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
