Random Five Friday

Actually, my thoughts today aren’t really random. Today’s post is all about nature.

1.)  I’ve posted recently about the huge zinnia plant we have (currently up to 6 feet), but I also have a few miniature zinnias, compliments of seeds from my friend, Donna. Isn’t this precious? It’s the only way I had to show the size of this sweet little bloom when I discovered it.

2.) And  now, a few duck randoms.  They were here for dinner on a recent evening during golden hour: my favorite time for photos. I’m sharing this one although it isn’t perfect.  Our little dock is all cattywampus from recent high tides. But I loved the one duck strolling on the dock and the fact that I caught another one taking flight.

3.)  The two babies are still visiting.  They’ve really grown, but still so cute.

4.) I submitted this next photo to our local paper and was honored that it was chosen to be printed in Wednesday’s paper. Mama Duck: “Does this golden hour light make my tailfeathers look big?

5.) And lastly, I captured this video (also on Wednesday) of a species of butterfly that I really don’t recall ever seeing before. Based on my online research, I believe it to be a Great Spangled Fritillary.  I find this little video rather relaxing.

And we certainly need a little relaxation right now. Praying for safety for those in Irma’s path as well as those dealing with the wildfires in the west.
