Creature Feature: Carolina Chameleon

We're minding the home front down on the Carolina coast for my daughter while she and hubby are away at a meeting.Other than two soccer games and one birthday party, we havent gotten far from the home base.One of these days I will have to come down with the intention of getting out to a seashore wildlife preserve with my camera.

Amazing!Mouse-over this thumbnail for the bigger image.

They remind us of Walnut Knob where we dug them up--my first Floyd County home out on the Parkway in 1997. And they are a symbol of spring. We have not arrived, so this image will have to suffice. Mouse-over the thumbnail for enlarged view.

A Matter of Perspective

I highly recommend this new look at Life, The Universe and Everything--at least to the extent that we have been able to extend our vision via the Hubble Space Telescope. … Continue Reading ››
