Monday Mellow Yellow – Cat Eyes

Jack the Cat’s eyes are very yellow, however he is far from mellow!
(These are IPhone photos, so not the best quality!)

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a function.
Garrison Keillor 

I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through.
Jules Verne 

“A cat’s eyes are windows enabling us to see into another world.” 
Irish Legend

Cats do not have to be shown how to have a good time, for they are unfailing ingenious in that respect.

Camera Critters – Black Point Wildlife Drive

Taking a journey back in time! Florida has way more interesting critters than PA!

Never insult an alligator until after you have crossed the river.
Patience young grasshopper!

Skywatch Friday – Canaveral National Seashore

One of my favorite Florida Beaches – Canaveral National Seashore, sand, surf and blue skies!

Sit in reverie and watch the changing color of the waves that break upon the idle seashore of the mind.

Alphabe-Thursday – Beaches

Jenny Matlock

At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.” – Unknown

Ocean City, NJ & Cocoa Beach, FL

Some beach somewhere
There’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair
Palm trees are growin’ and a warm breezes a blowing
I picture myself right there
On Some beach, somewhere

Flying “Flower”

The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.
~Ponce Denis Écouchard Lebrun

This little “fellow” was flitting around me the other day when I came home from work. I didn’t really have the right lens for photographing a butterfly, my 55-250mm lens was on my camera, but I made do!  I almost felt like it was trying to send me a message, sort of like Tinkerbelle flying around Peter Pan’s head! 
I have not had time to try and identify, so if any one has that answer, I would love to hear what it is!
EDITED TO ADD – Thanks to Misty Dawn, this has been identified as a a Red Spotted Purple.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.  ~Author Unknown

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”  ~Hans Christian Andersen

The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.  ~Rabindranath Tagore 

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun And find your shoulder to light on, To bring you luck, happiness and riches Today, tomorrow and beyond. ~Irish Blessing

Be Yourself!

It has been a month since I updated this blog! “My bad”. The weeks before and after the holiday’s were busy, tiring times for me (as well as every one I am sure!)

I’m joining in for Camera Critters. I miss visiting all the amazing photos. Some day maybe I will find time to visit blogs again!
