From Spectacular Fireworks To The Lowly Fungi, There Is Something For Everybody In The Summer.
Sorry I missed a few days without a new blog posts but I have been too busy enjoying the Summer. It is so short here in the mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania that I try and do as much as I can while it last.
And there is so much to do this time of year. This past weekend I enjoyed a couple of nice fireworks shows. No better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than watching the fireworks on a warm night. The photo above is from the great show at the Valley Country Club had on Sunday. This is a link to some more photographs from the show. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/photographs-5/nggallery/blog-photos/fireworks-valley-country-club-july-5-2015
We have been getting a lot of rain in our area and it rained most of the day on the Fourth of July. Unfortunately it ruined many a picnic and fireworks display, but the rain is good for the mushroom and they sure are sprouting up everywhere. And, being a fan of the edible wild mushrooms that is not a bad thing. They are very early this year. This is a link to some more mushrooms photographs I took on my hike on the Fourth. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/mushrooms/nggallery/mushrooms/mushrooms-july-4-2015
This is a link to some more photographs of this delicate and beautiful creature. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/pennsylvania-amphibians-and-reptiles/nggallery/pennsylvania-amphibians-and-reptiles/eastern-or-red-spotted-newt
And so much having in the insect world with dragonflies,moths, butterflies, wasps and bees of all types filling the air and all sort of insect on the ground. This is a link to some more photographs i took of the insect world with my macro lens last week. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/pennsylvania-insects-butterflies-bees-ants-and-spiders-dragonflies/nggallery/pennsylvania-insects-butterflies-bees-ants-and-spiders/insects-june-28-2015
And a lot of larger critters running around too, like this deer and the raccoon above that have been visiting my yard. It is always a wonderful sight to see a buck with it’s developing antlers covered in velvet. These are links to more photos of the deer and raccoons. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/mammals-of-pennsylvania/nggallery/mammals-of-pennsylvania/raccoon/page/4
So much to do this time of year, and so much to see, I wish I had more time to share more of my hikes and walks with you, but maybe it’s better I’m not able to, it ma y make you get out there and have a look for yourself, and if you do, remember to keep your eyes peeled.
