Around the House & an Event

Here are some recent photos taken in and around our yard.

A tulip-tree beauty on our front door. Thanks again to Vernon Antoine Brou for the ID!

Mama raccoon has taken (as she always does this time of year,) to coming around in the afternoon again.

Female carpenterworm moth (about 2" long.) Despite its excellent camouflage, my eagle-eyed husband spotted it.

If you're in the area on Apr. 17th, I'll be vending at the Abita Springs Trailhead Art and Music Festival. Hope to see you there!

The Mothman cometh!

Seriously, these are amazing close-ups.

Lana Gramlich said...

Charles; Aw shucks, hon. You're too kind (as usual!) *hugs*

Cloudia; Thanks. :)

eileeninmd; Thank you. She's familiar with us now, so she's very tolerant.

bernie kasper; Anytime, bernie! Thanks for the comment. :)

PhotoDiction; Thank you. We love the coonies around here. :)

Erik Donald France; Thanks, hon! We've been pretty lucky lately for patient, wild critters!

The raccoon shot is amazing! It's another one where you captured the personality of an animal. Really wonderful shot! I can't believe you found all of these around your house. I have to practice keeping my eyes open a bit more!

Lana Gramlich said...

Heather; Glad you like the raccoon. She's really very sweet. We live out in the country, so I'm sure that helps with sightings. I also have an eagle-eyed husband (despite his protestations that he's actually old and decrepit, the big silly head!)

How in the world did you get the picture of the moth? It looks like you snapped it when it was in mid-flap.

Lana Gramlich said...

Rico; The moth was standing on the glass of our storm door. ;) It was still a challenge to get the shot without the flash reflecting off the glass, though!
