Wouldn’t it be nice if you could go no further than just a few steps outside your front door to see beautiful creatures such as these white-tailed deer? Well maybe not, if you’re a gardener. As a photographer though, I was happy to see these young bucks and does deer roaming nearby on a beautiful autumn day in Montana, just off the shore of Flathead Lake where I was visiting family.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
When the world feels upside down, I like to look up. The sky is an ever changing canvas, from night to day, from season to season. A multi-colored canvas painted with dramatic compositions and vistas as a constant reminder of the glory of God, the creator.
Meet Mr. Snakefly. He showed up in my flowerbed of pink dianthus the other day, and very kindly posed for my camera for quite some time. If you see one of these guys in your yard or garden, treat him kindly, as he is one of the “good guys” in the world of bugs. He is predatory in the larvae and in the adult stages, which means he likes to eat aphids and other destructive insects in your garden. Here’s some more interesting information with facts you may not have known about this interesting little creature.
