Polyphemus Moth and Others

The Polyphemus moth is a very large and beautiful silk moth-named after Polyphemus, the giant cyclops in Greek mythology. Snapped this picture at work on Friday. It’s the second one I’ve seen this month at work.

The Beautiful Imperial Moth

And my favorite, The Lovely Luna Moth

Bee on a Sunflower

This little bee wasn’t interest in me. He was too busy getting the nectar from this beauty at the sunflower field–Patoka Lake.

Osprey Nest

Took this picture with my phone at work last week. It’s an Osprey nest. One of the Osprey flew off right as I snapped the photo. You can see him to the bottom left of the nest. The Osprey or fish hawk as they are sometimes called can have a wing span of 71 inches. They’re pretty awesome. My phone has a pretty bad zoom on it, but wanted to share the picture with you even though it’s a little fuzzy. 🙂 You can click the photo, then click again to enlarge for a little better look.

A Walk in the Sun

We were in the deep freeze last week with -5 F temps and -25 wind chill. Then Saturday we had a lovely warm up. It got up to 55 degrees. I thought that was fantastic, but then yesterday it made it to 65 degrees with sunny skies. So I had to take advantage and take a long, lovely walk. Spent two hours walking in nature and found this beautiful little gem. A lovely and unexpected surprise. I love covered bridges.

Heavenly Scented Gardenia

Update: I was told these were gardenias, but I kept thinking they look more like the magnolias I grew up with in Florida. I still think they’re white magnolias. If anyone knows for sure, let me know in the comments. Thanks.

I have four good size Gardenia trees on one side of my house and they are beginning to bloom. So beautiful and the scent is like heaven. One of my favorite flowers.
