This week, Ann-Christine, invites us to share images that are weird and wonderful. The first one I am sharing was taken at a Botanical Gardens in Asheville, NC. If you have watched “Stranger Things” on Netflix, maybe this reminds you of the “upside down”. That’s what I saw in the image. Also – it shows that nature will thrive anywhere.
The next photo is a wonderful piece of art seen at the Cherokee museum.
Pelicans are strange looking birds to begin with – but this is the first one I have captured in full dive position.
Last are two photos of an imperial moth. The caterpillars are abundant but the moths are rarely seen since the birds find the caterpillars delicious.
This week we are sharing photos of things that are old, dilapidated or vintage. I have three examples. The first one is from last year that I took while on a boat ride in Florida on the Homosassa River. This house has definitely seen better days.
The next photo is from a recent trip to Alligator River Wildlife Refuge on Roanoke Island in North Carolina. This place has a lot of bear that can be seen on a regular basis in the spring and fall. We didn’t see any this trip but saw evidence of them.
The last image is one on a bike trail we frequent. It is a house built in the late 1700’s – early 1800’s. It first served as the Dismal Swamp Canal’s lock keeper’s house, then as a store for a lumber company, a commission booster for a pioneer telegraph line through this part of the state, a tea room and a private home. I love stopping at the site every time we go by it.
