8-28-14. Giant Water Bug. San Felasco State Preserve, Gainesville, Florida. 2014.  Giant Water Bug, Toe Biter, Alligator Tick--all names for this true bug. They are big and can grow to 3 inches long! Their piercing, sucking mouthpart can cause a painful bite and they can pinch with their front legs. They eat fish or even baby turtles and snakes! Luckily for me, this one was dead.
8-30-14. Florida Toothache Grass (Ctenium floridanum). Poaceae (Grass Family). Morningside Nature Center, Gainesville, Florida. 2014.  I think this grass is so pretty and interesting. Initially, the seed spikelets grow straight, looking like a long, thin comb. And then when they dry, they twist, shooting their seeds all over. This is an endangered grass that is endemic to Florida.

February 10...  Beach #4.  Almost every day I take Blif for a walk along the beach. Especially in autumn and winter the sky puts up magnificent shows. The other day this sky came up covering most colors even a bit of green at the left. The show went on for app. 10 minutes, and then it was all over.

For Sept.2,2014  Confederation Park in the evening. She was dancing toward me and I smiled but her sister said,"she wants you to take her picture". The front shot was blurry but I know she'd appreciate even this after shot! She was cute and maybe 14 or 15.    Lots of go cart, pool, sea do, boats , and swimmer pictures but I will torture you all week with them! It will keep summer here for awhile !!!   Go Tigers!! They won!

Day 240: NY Skyline Pastel Rainbow - Sept 1.  A heavy-duty thunder and lightning stormed moved through the area late yesterday afternoon.  As it moved eastward over NYC, I managed to get out in time to catch a rainbow over the city.  I took about 6 shots but this was the only one where the Empire State Building was not obscured by the storm.  The rainbow created amazing light and color in the brief seconds before it dissapeared.
