Morning Photos:
A Weird Fly, Fuzzy Goldfinches and a copper colored Spider

I went out this morning to stalk some Goldfinches that had been eluding me, and didn't quite get close enough to take a good photo of them, but did get some photos of a weird fly that had a translucent abdomen (first two photos), a copper-colored spider on a fence rail, and my American Goldfinches were very wary of me, so I was only able to get these two shots at extreme range (for my Kodak Z710, anyway) before calling it an expedition and heading back.

I plan on trying for some bees this afternoon...

I had the flash on, and had to play with the brightness and contrast to get the last photo to come out close to right...

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
