The Misfits

Today’s post is about those pictures that don’t really fit with anything else.  The varied subjects that I photograph and think worthy of sharing.

I took these pictures the evening of Sunday July 1st.  J was sitting on a hill, in the fire truck, watching the lightning.  No rain from this storm, but the clouds were amazing.  The collage pictures are of the southern sky and the picture below the western view.

The majority of cattle around these parts are black, but not all.  One neighbor has a handful of British White Parks and another has a few Scottish Highlanders.

I saw this Lady last Saturday.  I have always like ladybugs and was excited to see a few while J and I were out and about.

If I were tiny just like you
I’d creep among the flowers too!

As we were moving cows I spotted this feather.  I stopped to take a picture of a cow when I looked down and saw it.  I found it interesting and wondered where it came from.

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.

    I love the storm photos. I’m sorry you didn’t get any rain out of them. We didn’t get any either. My parents and brother, who farm in a neighboring county, got between 1.40 and 1.78. I’m trying not to be jealous!

    I’m not sure, but the feather looks like a hawk feather to me.
