friday the 13th full moon

My 1st post after a long pause is of a moon I saw early this morning. 

       FULL MOON 
(I believe specifically it's the day after, but what a beauty!)
and it's on FRIDAY THE 13TH!

Wilkes-Barre area looking west toward the Back Mountain, NEPA, where the local highway cuts through the mountains.
MY mountain ;-)

There's also a female cardinal photo pecking at seeds after a recent snowfall below.

Some Spring Summer blossoms

My, it's been a while! 
I've been busy... chasing butterflies, birds, clouds in the sky...
Hope you've enjoyed Spring.              Now it's summer.

1st 2 photos are of a tiny purple flower growing in the bushes. I never saw all that detail before!! COOL!
((There's a link below to a flowers page where my photography is included  & for sale))


You see part of my thumbnail in the next photo. 

May rhododendron blossoms opening. PRETTY! 

this bee is too busy eating pollen to enjoy the beauty of the blossoms. 


I used a dramatic setting on my camera to achieve this interesting effect.

Weather drama

After missing most of the snow and stormy weather this winter season, we're getting some snow now that is actually sticking to the ground, here in NE PA, USA.

BEAUTIFUL!

Stay safe out there! The photo is a different day,, still as exhilarating as any beautiful wonder of nature!

RAINBOWS!

A few days ago we had warmer than normal temps, with rain.
just before a cold front moved in.

I saw TWO BEAUTIFUL RAINBOWS, one late morning:



 Then we got back on the road. Dramatic clearing clouds in the sky while passing Wilkes-Barre.


 Early afternoon, here's ANOTHER rainbow!
Views from our backyard. 





The entire arch touches down in front of the mountains on the west side of the Susquehanna River.

PUMPKIN FLOWERS

PUMPKIN FLOWER BLOSSOMS,
growing, unfurling their petals late Summer

... and a little spider, trying to get away from my camera
squeezing through the narrow gorge,
to the safety beneath the broad leaves.

 Imagine- tiny corkscrews,,,   PRETTY!
First the bud opening up, then it's almost open, with tendrils curling all around.

the sky tonight!

It was a tremendously humid day.

We've had record-breaking temperatures here in the NE of PA.

then.... AHHHHHH!

A beautiful sunset, with everchanging patterns and color combinations,
ending with purple accents on bluish-turning grey clouds.


Then the moon, almost full,
peeks out from behind the clouds.
hanging low in the sky.

  
good night moon!
GOOD NIGHT ALL! Sleep well.
