The Stopping of Wings—Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Onefly sent me two photos!

BetterThey are amazingly ‘cool’ because he was actually able to snap the photos fast enough to have the wings stopped.  I’ve tried and tried and tried and all I ever get is a blur.


Really neat photos, don’t you think?

It froze last night.  Our first heavy frost of the year.  Now I have a whole set of ‘other jobs’ to do in the yard.  They will have to wait as we are still at the other house. Hopefully by the end of this week we will have everything inside done.  All that will be left is the furnace.  That is going to be a HUGE job…of course it is either under the house or in the attic.  We are looking at a high efficiency (propane) furnace to replace the one that is there.

Our daughter and the two granddaughters are coming this weekend.  YAY!!! Grandpa and I can hardly wait!

Anyway, we are getting closer…those words are always nice to say.

Your friend,

  1. Amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever seen wings that weren’t a blur,
    Are you going to do the furnace by yourselves? That seems like an enormous undertaking,


  2. Beautiful pictures! We have these lovely moths here, too. It got to 25 degrees night before last…brrrrrrr. I am soooo not ready for winter. Today we are having an alkali dust storm because there is no water in Goose Lake.


  3. Those hummingbird moths are so cool. We have them here, and I love them.
    We are slowly cooling. Sweatshirt weather. It does feel nice. I hate to admit! Lol!


  4. Those ARE amazing photos – the moths really seem to hover over the flowers. I like gas heating myself, not that we need it here, but when I lived in the UK it was my favourite; instant heat, very efficient and cost effective, and it uses less space inside the house.


  5. Thanks Linda and it needs to be said wings of this insect do not beat anywhere close to the speed of a hummingbird that you are having problems with. When I get a hummingbird’s wings to stop you will be the first to know. Season’s over and there weren’t many around.


  6. Love One Fly’s picture of the hummingbird moths. They are fun to watch, but I do hate the tomato worm that makes into the moth!! They can ruin a tomato plant in no time. I’ve had several of the moths around to watch this Summer/Fall. Did you notice the little lizard in the picture, too?!

    Love your header! So glad to hear that you get to see your daughter and granddaughters!!



  7. You really work Very Hard, Linda, and particularly because of that, am Very Glad that Your family will be with You for the hols. …Of course the photographs are amazing, for the reason You state. And to have a lizard in that as well! (At first I thought it was a croc!). 🙂
