I got to this dandelion puff before Bazinga could make a snack of it.
Bazinga enjoyed climbing on the rocks. He tried to get a little over adventurous and thought he should be able climb down the rocks and take a swim in the lake. Thank goodness for his purple (yes, it embarrasses him to have a girly one) harness. At least he didn't strangle when he tried to dive into the water.
Does anyone know what tree this is from. There were all sorts of them on a trail we hiked. I have never seen one of these before. The tree is very tall, but not very full. There were these flowers(?) all over them. Bazinga thought I spent waaaayyy too much time photographing it. He had much better things to do.
For instance chasing these two fellows. Again, thank goodness for purple harnesses. Bazinga, however was cussing it. He saw those two heads pop up and thought "TOY!!!! Damm, that girly harness anyway!"
We also saw this seagull. SEAgull, in Iowa, always makes me laugh. I do often wonder what they are doing here.
Bazinga didn't see him, he was still busy trying to get the geese.
SEAgulls, (hehe) just aren't quite the same. Why are they in land locked Iowa anyway?
I did have to stop and think a little about how bees seem to be in trouble. This little guy seemed to be about the only to be found. Yet there was an entire row of blooming lilacs. Shouldn't it have been full of bees buzzing around. Shouldn't there have been many hard working bees gathering pollen? It just didn't seem right.
