Bugging Out

All photos taken during our July 5, 2021 walk in Tucker’s Field/Bunchberry Meadows.

Our bug jackets may make us seem like we are insectaphobes, but there are plenty of photogenic insects along the hike that add to our enjoyment.

Dragonflies hover,

Butterflies flitter.

Two nature Lovers,

Our time we fritter.

Sharing – 2 Northwestern Frittilary butterflies/1 flower
This dragonfly looks like a tiny helicopter hovering over the horse pasture

Can you spot the grasshopper in the grass?

We felt sad for this worker Bumblebee. She was obviously on her last legs (wings) so to speak, worn out from all the back and forth pollen gathering. All she could do was walk along the ground.

Regarding Week 4 of the Photo Challenge

Week #4 photo in the photo challenge was of a field of lupins at Nauthalsvik Geothermal Beach in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Here is the link to the original post.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.
