Snapshots - I Braved the August Heat

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. Kudos to me. I braved the brutal Florida-August heat today to bring you some river photos. (In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to my heat stroke recovery fund)

You see the red dragonfly?


  1. I know that mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. Which category are you claiming?
    Beautiful pictures though - thank you.

  2. I saw on another blog you asked about hummingbirds. It is pretty easy and the birds remember from year to year. All you need is a feeder, sugar and water. One part white sugar to four parts water. No boiling necessary. I like the saucer feeders as they are easy to clean and clean is every 3 to 4 days in the summer. Check out for more information...

    1. Michelle...I'd be afraid to kill 'em with some fungus/bacteria. I'm not very good about venturing into the backyard during the week. I know I wouldn't get out there to clean the maybe I should stick with titmouse, wrens, and cardinals.

  3. Lily pads are popping up all over the place at the shore right now. Beautiful images!!

  4. An hour or two of it would be good it's getting cool here.

  5. We had a heatwave recently - I had to take my jacket off ;-)
