Or (what my mind thought): trunk-ated. 🙂

Sometimes these things just pop into my head.  🙂

“The door’s always open” certainly applies to this residence.  The door to the home of this gilded flicker woodpecker, though, might not seem friendly to most, guarded as it is by the long spines of the saguaro cactus.  This particular cactus doesn’t appear particularly happy with the occupancy or perhaps it’s just seen something shocking.  Whatever it is, the home owner seems quite unfazed.

Sunday afternoon, we drove to Whalen Lake, part of an extensive park system in the Chicago metropolitan area.  The heat and humidity were beating down, but my husband had mentioned that there were lots of egrets the last time he rode his bike there.  Although we did spot some, most were too far away, probably due to the noise of a large group of picnickers under the shelter.  However, we did spot a number of birds and butterflies in the area, including a rare miniature dragon sighting.

I do not care what comes after; I have seen the dragons on the wind of morning.
~Ursula K. Le Guin, The Farthest Shore

I desired dragons with a profound desire. Of course, I in my timid body did not wish to have them in the neighborhood. But the world that contained even the imagination of Fáfnir was richer and more beautiful, at whatever the cost of peril.
~J.R.R. Tolkien

If the sky could dream, it would dream of dragons.
~Ilona Andrews, Fate’s Edge

Dragons and legends…It would have been difficult for any man not to want to fight beside a dragon.
~Patricia Briggs, Dragon Blood

Seen in Prescott, Arizona, this rubber ducky would require an enormous bathtub or jacuzzi!  I especially like his “hat.”  Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge 2015 week 23 are everywhere; you just have to be ready!

Yes, once again I’m unconnected for a long weekend, part of it where I probably won’t even get cell phone coverage.  Ain’t life grand?  🙂

(more…)

When cooking or baking, I often grab my phone to take a photo of some interesting sight or creature created by mixing, melting, adding, or other kitchen process.  This one caught my attention and then I tarted it up a bit just for fun.  I hope you enjoy it.
