Hiding In The Peppers

Hiding In The Peppers

We’ve been enjoying a bumper crop of sweet peppers this summer. Today when grabbing a few more, this little guy appeared. We’re not the only ones enjoying those green globes of goodness.

This little guy, unlike others of the species around here, is not bashful at all. It sits atop one of the stakes in our greenhouse, keeping those marvelous eyes on our tomatoes, peppers, etc. One of many critters that co-habitate with us in there.

We have many insect friends here on The Orchard Compound, especially dragonflies. I’m always trying to snap photos of them but they usually fly off. This little guy perched on a thin piece of metal on our old tractor and stayed still long enough for me to get a shot. But when opened in my photo editor, I found this bug was smiling at me! Weird.

Good Morning!

Good Morning!

This big guy wandered through this morning just after sunrise. Never tire of watching them, especially this time of year. Svelt coats, fuzzy antlers, rippling muscles. Amazing, fascinating creatures.
