The other morning I woke up early and decided that
I would take a little walk down to the lake and see
what I could find.
As I left the campground this is this is what I saw..
In my opinion not too pretty of a site. The wide open desert.
And then I made my way down to the lake.
When I was young my sister and I would always come out to this
part of the lake. Its called Boulder Beach. We always thought it
was named that because... just look at all the rocks!
But they say it's called Boulder Beach because it is close to
Boulder City. I'm still not buying it.
As I was walking along by the lake I spotted these
tree branches full of these weird barnacles.
They kinda look like tiny little shells.
They looked so cool.
If you look close you can see all types of different
little flowers. But from far away they just look like weeds.
See what I mean..
The little flower above looks so pretty close up.
But take about 5 steps away and you can't see them.
The Grasshoppers are everywhere out here. I have
been trying all week to catch a photo of one.
They are not those great big green Grasshoppers.
These are tiny brown grasshoppers that blend
in with the dirt. As I was trying to snap off a
shot of one, this little guy came running by.
He froze just for a moment for me to catch this shot.
And of course there is never a shortage of these little guys
Well yesterday I finally got a photo of this little grasshopper.
They really are so hard to spot. They blend right in with the dirt.
I am pretty sure I will continue to chase these little critters
to see if I can get a better shot.
Thanks for taking a peek at my photos from my
morning walk.. It's amazing the beauty you can find through
the lens of a camera.
I do hope you take time to see
beauty in the little things.
Oh yes and Happy Turkey day to all
my US Friends.
