Snorts. That gives me an idea. I wonder if daddy will give me a piggy back ride into the kitchen – the land of heaven here at the Hotel Thompson. But then again this makes me go hhmm – I wonder why they call it ‘piggy’back? XOXO – Bacon
I know, right? I was thinking u might know the answer to that…if anyone can find out, it’ll be you, Bacon!!!
aaww – and you know I just went and research this right? Snorts – Here you go – all you ever wanted to know about the term piggyback. It originated from the term pick a pack and slowly over the years became piggy back. Very interesting read 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
thx for doing the mouse work! 🙂 !
or leap frog! lol..great catch + very interesting–I still love bugs as I did when I was a kid…they stop me in my tracks..those are ones, I have never seen before. What are they? Mini-dragon fly???? or is it the angle that makes them look smaller:-)
I happened to have a telephoto lens for some other purpose when I saw these two taking a break on a wall. They are actually “full” size as best I could tell. Don’t expect to see any more now that the cold air finally arrived although I have seen ladybugs trying to escape by hiding in the crop covers. Even heard some bugs tentatively singing the other night, too. It’s just been weirdly warm around here. Actually looking forward to some cold and even maybe–dare I say it?–snow. Oops, I will probably regret that. 😉
lol:-) we had some flurries today:-)
I always want to capture dragon flies but they never stay put too long in my garden;-) Really neat you caught them!
It is not weirdly warm around here anymore-it was Monday + this past weekend- in the 60″s now it is getting in the teens!!!
Makes the carrots sweeter–according to my mom. Or turns them to mush– as happened to me last winter. (I waited too long, methinks.) Stay warm!!! 🙂
Very nice, you’ll have more dragonflies next year!
