…Stick Bug!…

A summer adventure brought us to discover this little guy!!

It was amazing how when he was, safely, moved from the tire back to his home on ground level he was camouflaged so well with the fallen leaves and twigs on the ground!

Remembering the outdoors…

So maybe it hasn’t been all that cold in New York City this past week. And as I leave work and it isn’t pitch black out … I start to think of summer … and one of my favorite places – YOSEMITE.

Here are few shots from Yosemite in the summertime… that I’ve taken in the recent past. Looking at them makes me want to go back… even if right now it is a snow covered landscape!
