  • showing off a little wood photography

    Took this photo today nice cool dry sunny day in Houston (what a rare combination) with my macro lens...
    Some faux birdhouses (decorative) made for the wife quite a few years ago showing their character achieved over time.

    And one of those noisy cicada, or at least his exoskeleton he left behind... fresh, he left as I was getting the camera, too slow again. Clinging to a well weathered cedar fence, love that deep weathered grain.

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.

    Good photo work.
    Interesting photo of a cicada, scary looking critter. I can’t remember ever seeing one of these in the wild, except when they were crawling up a tree to do their exeoskeleton shed. Maybe I didn’t not realize what they were in the soil, maybe they were the thumb size butt ugly grub at the time. Today I noticed 25 on the east facing side of a pine tree. They like to climb up objects early in the morning in full sun to dry out for their shed. The west side of the tree only had 5-6.

      They are not too graceful. One flew into the shop and was crashing off the walls and mostly off my shop lights making a metallic clang on the sheet metal.
      The other night I noticed a neighborhood cat stalking on our patio... eventually he was climbing on the workbench a the shelves trying to catch a cicada.
      We also have cicada killer wasps stinging the emerging Cicadas and dragging the bodies back into their thumb-sized holes in dirt where they feed their babies.
