August 14th. - One of the newest members of Collin Dance Ensemble!  ...  On Friday, Emily, my youngest daughter auditioned for Collin Dance Ensemble.  All of the dancers were told the new company list would be posted on Monday afternoon.  She didn't have to wait that long.  This evening when she was out with a friend she got a text from the dance director congratulating her for making the company.  She immediately called me.  Fifteen years of classes, thousands and thousand of dollars for tuition, leotards, tights, shoes, costumes, competition fees and gas..... all worth it!  Congratulations Emily.  Live your dream.  I am soooo happy for you.  ....... I have been wanting to do shots like this ever since I saw a fellow smugmugger and daily photographer (Thanks Shelly) do this.  I sent her a message on FB and asked if she minded if I borrowed her idea.  She is an incredible sweetie and said "of course not".  Finally talked my favorite model and dancer ;) into posing for me again and out we headed to the pool.  This is just one of quite a few I got of her this afternoon.  As I said earlier she had "plans" to go to dinner with a guy friend she went to high school with so I couldn't wait until the lighting was better.  Had to strike while I could. She is a busy young woman (young woman...  WOW...  my baby is a young woman!).  We may try to get some more later this week in the early evening when the lighting is better.  IF she has time.

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.
