i yelled to lars "hon, will you run out there and take a picture?" he didn't even hesitate before yelling back "no, i won't!!!" (guess i don't blame him, it was- might i remind you-poooouuuuring rain and he was all showered, dry and crawling into bed.)
*** and he doesn't even have a blog. what e-v-e-r!!!
well being the dedicated nature lover and blogger that i am, i didn't hesitate- time was running out-after all, the old crustacean was crawling steadily away from my house....i slammed my feet into my flip flops, grabbed the camera and went flying out the door thinking "this can't be good for my camera, or my hips and i hope i don't fall down and break one, how will i explain that to the paramedics" - (we have a big back yard and the water runs thru it like a creek during a good rain.) i got a few pictures and bid him ado- and booked it back to the house- sopping wet but happy.
man what i don't do for you people huh? i am willing to go out on a limb and up on a berm. : )
well take a look at the old girl (-i'm thinking it was a female who just crawled up outta the pond to lay her eggs.)
there were raindrops all over my lens-duh.
and then she was gone.
good luck crossing the road now buddy-and maybe we'll see you again some time~
5 inches of rain later,
