Photo Of The Week: BENNI
Hi Randall!! Fabulous shots for this week's theme. That one of the crawdad facing off the cat always makes me laugh. The caption for the second shot should be "one day I'm going to be a toadstool, just like dad!!". LOL. Great shots of the bugs, even if they are pests!! Gonna be a small bowl of soup, methinks!!
What great pictures, Randall. Spunky crawdad with the cat! The small mushroom picture is marvelous, both in color and texture. The little one is so cute. Tiny bugs can indeed to big damage; I love the yellows and dark greens. I have never seen a yellow lady bug and I like the detail in that one. And perfect little cherry tomato (and nice ring).
Actually, the ring is quite intriguing. Copper and silver? Are those stones in it? It looks like a one-of-a kind hand made ring.
It is. It is made of gold and the diamonds are from Thailand back in the early 80s. I designed the ring and had it made for me. The diamonds where from my mother. and the ring was made to be my wedding ring.
It was a wax casting. and I designed it to protect the diamonds with the raised edges. It has lasted as I had hoped. I use to do silversmithing, and kind of knew what I wanted. I didn't have the equipment anymore so I had to design it and have someone else cast it for me.
The diamonds are special in another way as they are cut in an older form of Baguette shape that you don't see anymore. At least that is what I am told by some of the gem dealers 20 years ago. Ha ha wow how time flies.
Thank you so much!! It's a great ring.
Hi Randall! Amazing shots, as always! The mushroom is my favorite, but the ring and the tomato are so artistic!
oh, and the cat and the crawdad!!! what a cool capture!
Interesting photos. the meeting of a cat and a crawdad (never heard of them before) very interesting. Lovely colourful mushroom and like your striped beetles which don't seem to be living in Switzerland. Yellow ladybirds are also not common here, but the tiny tomatoes are - all great photos.
Te felicito por estas maravillosas imágenes!Saludos
A standoff!Beautiful shroom"Well, fellas, its time I headed for home.""And here we have Deirdre the Amazing Ladyblug doing her intrepid death-defying twigclambering trick. We request the utmost silence."Cool art
the yellow ladybugs are sort of new. Not sure if they are infact lady bugs. The eat the leaves with astounding speed. Lady bugs do more good with the aphids. I loved the cat with the crayfish, Or as we called them down south Crawdads. Little lobsters. He he. Thank you for all your kind compliments. Gracias por el complemento Isabela usted.
Oh and by the way, the crawdad won this one.
You're welcome, Randall. I see - maybe the cat will have a chance a rematch.
