I have been out of town for a few days so I have missed a lot I'm sure. Today I am putting up a shot from a few weeks ago. Made a quick pit stop to get this while on my way to have a beautiful lunch over looking Seneca Lake in upstate N.Y.
Either a green frog, (Lithobates clamitans, formerly Rana clamitans) or a bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus), probably female judging from the relative sizes of eye and tympanum.  The apparent absence of ridges along the back argues for an ID of bullfrog.  This one was petite, around two inches in length.  There were dozens of frogs I startled into jumping from the shore to the pond or from lily pad to water as I walked the perimeter of the pond.  I managed to catch sight of just one before it jumped.  You can see from the shadows of the tiny aquatic plants that the part of the lily pad bearing the frog is slightly submerged.  DP273-2014  Posted September 30; processed ditto from a shot taken September 29 Although the bulk of my photographic efforts these days is going into capturing the glories of fall foliage and the process of the change of seasons, I like to provide some variety in my DailyPhotos posts.  Since I almost never get clear shots of frogs, I decided to go with one of this cutie.  I love how she's decked out in the confetti-like plant stuff herself.  If you look closely, you'll see a tiny fly on the underside of her jaw, and another one in the lower left.  Pond, Hidden Lake Gardens, Michigan  Title:  The Joint Was Jumpin'

9/30/14 - Glass jar in front of handmade paper hanging screen, which was really  neat.  This looks better in the largest sizes.  I'm a bit ambivalent about this image; I like the detail in the glass jar and I like the light coming through the screen, but it is a bit busier than I usually like.  What do you think?  Thanks for your warm response to the shot of the tall Chihuly sculpture at the Denver Botanic Gardens.  Whereever you are, if you have an opportunity to go to one of the large botanic garden Chihuly exhibits, it would be well worth you while.
Young girl, Ulaanbaatar  I was walking along a street in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia yesterday when I felt a tug on my sleeve and this small girl, who seemed to be dressed up for a party, wanted me to take her picture. I was happy to oblige.  30/09/14 www.allenfotowild.com

29.09.14 - Bulrushes  I almost had to climb down into a drainage pond to get this shot. I was walking the dog along the edge and was struck by the fantastic colours in the late afternoon light. Luckily it was bone dry as we're having the driest September since records began, only about 20% of the usual rainfall for this time of year.
SHM was one of many groups represented at the Pro-Act march. This was taken as the group passed Independence Hall.
Sept 30 - Sunflower bloom  Saying good bye to summer - this was an image I used in my Sunflower Collage a few weeks back:

April 20, 2009 -  "Sign Of The Times" - This might be one way to use the remaining tangible assets of a failed bank.
February 21, 2011 - "Restoration Questionable"  This vehicle is on display in front of some Key West stores.  I did some research and believe that nameplate on the hood is part of the original vehicle.  Your response to my Key West sunset image was greatly appreciated.
