Here’s a little Eastern Blue-eyed Grass-Sisyrinchium atlanticum to get the weekend started.
It’s “eye” is not blue, the petals are not blue but purple toned, and the plant isn’t a grass at all but a member of the iris family. For a more erudite discussion of iris relatives, click here to see Linda’s (Lagniappe/Shoreacres) post of this and a few others.
I already posted a Friday frog, but this morning was Frog Friday at Poor Farm Swamp. They are really out there now and the place was echoing croaks all morning. I’ve a few for future FFs.
I also saw one other critter across the swamp while at the Rail Trail. As with the moose I posted a few years ago, I was not at all prepared for an animal in motion so just barely got my lens pointed upwards for one not very good frame before I had a chance to boost the ISO. But at least it is recognizable.
It apparently got employment inspecting the railroad tracks and was moving right along. Wish I had a second chance.
And with that my vacation is over. I still have Saturday and Sunday but I would have anyway. The weather this past week has been disappointing. Not a sunrise to be seen and breezy almost everyday as well. But to adapt a fisherman’s phrase, a bad day of photography is still better than a good day at work. 🙂
