Foto Finish - Look Down

What a week!  I've been away from the computer most of the week, so my apologies to those who I owe emails and for not being up to date on what's going on with you.  It's always a mad house when My Guy is on the road and I'm left to hold down the fort.  Monday was a zoo and my hopes for a slower paced Tuesday didn't happen.  Wednesday was the only night we didn't have something going on and I was asleep in the recliner by 7:00 PM that night.  Thankfully Drama Teen and I have nothing on the schedule this weekend.  That's doubly good as poor DT caught the stomach bug making the rounds at school and spent her Friday morning either in the bathroom throwing up or in bed asleep.  She managed a little dinner last night, so I'm hopeful she's over the worst. 

It was nice to just sit back this morning and search the photo files for something that fit Barbara's theme of "look down".  Some Saturdays I know just what I want to post, others I have to really do some searching.  I remembered that we had taken some walks at Easter this year and thought there might be something in that set of photographs. 


I'd completely forgotten about this photo.  This little guy was taking advantage of some of the early spring wildflowers.  The shot was taken at My Guy's family farm.  Things were just starting to green up.  We all spent a lot of time looking down that weekend as the snakes were also starting to wake up.  Copperheads are common in the area and my brother-in-law had found one by the tree not far from where this was taken just the week before.  I've never seen one close to the house, but many in the family have. 

Check out Cat Patches to see what else is down with the world this week.

  1. I remember the copperheads when we lived back east. Nice shot. These are hard to get with their wings so nicely spread.

  2. Ah! Yeah, I'd be looking down for snakes! Cute little bug, though. I hope DT is feeling better - stomach bugs are never fun.

  8. The picture is great with the different textures and colours. I'm so pleased I live in England. We only have one poisonous snake(the adder) and two other snakes because the climate is too cold and damp.

  9. Very cute butterfly.

    Hope DT is feeling better soon. Sounds like a quiet weekend is exactly what you both need!

    Im with Marg - we all look down here all the time. Except when we're looking around in the water avoiding sharks.
