Anyway here is Rally’s back half in full jump toward a Miscanthus flower.
I have been trying to “catch” this Robin or its friends eating June berries all week! Each bird seems to know the moment I pick up my camera! Even here the cat is looking out the window with me, not helping my chances at all – yet in the end this very alert Robin is photographed among the overripe berries.
Third grade is nearly over for this homeschool mom and the closer we get to completing the more I – the teacher – look out the window. This day I glance at the Asclepias tuberosa just outside the “classroom” as he plays Ocean Waves on his keyboard. Listening only for a wrong note until I see this butterfly then all is lost. I jump up run for the camera – slide open the screen. Andre stops. The commotion behind him just too much even for Ocean Waves. Together we hang out the window in love with our butterfly friend. Playing a new song – click, click-click, click.
“Does the eagle soar at your command and build its nest on high?”
The day was dreary, we were tired of math and spelling, so we jumped in the car. A school day at the Toledo Zoo! As we stood in front of Marta, the Amur Tiger, Andre said, “Take a picture of her nose!” At midday she and her two tiger cubs were fast asleep. By 4 p.m. on our way out of the zoo, they were quite awake. More zoo pics to come!
