Striving for Normal

No need for words - everyone else is saying it all. I'm an emotional person, and I am easily overwhelmed by events on the order of magnitude of the past week. Today, at last, I feel as though my own life is getting back to something resembling normal, even though we all know that our world has once again changed forever.

Here are some sights from the few outings that Gryphon and I took in the vicinity this weekend.

Grand Piano Skeleton
This was leaning against the rocks under one end of an abandoned auto bridge that we visited. No telling how long it's been there, but it's obviously decades old.

Itty-Bitty Fishies
Fim! Fim if you can! And they fam and they fam all over the dam. Or in this case, the rocks under another bridge.

Butterflies Don't Pose Well
I followed this winged whippet all over the garden in this little park for quite a while, and this was the best shot I was able to get.

Amazing Color, From Light...

...To Dark
It never ceases to amaze me the colors you find in nature. In person, these looked like a metallic-finish or galvanized purple bead.

See the Bump on the Log?
Right there, in the center. Really, it's there. Look closely. That's a turtle, sunning itself. Honest, it is.

Orange Beauty
This gorgeous lady had set up housekeeping next to the Souhegan River. It took us a good ten minutes to get this one picture - it's notoriously hard to get an auto-focus camera to focus on a spiderweb.

False Solomon's Seal, Part II
Remember the great brown-speckled berries a few weeks ago in my foto blog, with the green/chartreuse/brown leaves? This is what they look like now.

Bees Make Better Models Than Butterflies
They're generally so focused on their job that they sit still for some time, and don't even notice that big, one-eyed monster leaning in close to them.
