Scenes from the River-Side;

*Ducks and Butterflies from the nearby River-Side*
These scenes are from late last month on our way home from shopping. My husband's kind detour gave me a lucky surprise♪   Some different kinds (colors) of ducks were in the river.  And I enjoyed seeing thier poses on PC.  The train line is at the other side of the river. It's a Back Scene of them for "GoodFences".


"Sympetrum eroticum”   my husband found
While I was busy taking pictures of the ducks, my husband found this 'Sympetrum eroticum' at the river-side bush.  They were the last butterflies we caught this fall.

*White Sasanqua for flower links*
This white Sasanqua is early bloomer from neighbor's garden several days ago.

*Lovely traffic corn for two links *
In this post, I wrote about the trafic corn substitutionof pink rabbit. Here is another animal version I found a couple days ago.
Another one for "GoodFences" and for "Fridays Hunt", (my Week's Favorite)

So sorry for my early posting.  Tomorrow, I'll visit my cousin who has 'Orange Orchard' (I wrote in this post)  This year, we had about 20 boxes of orders from our friend to bring back directly. Taking about 2 and a half hour drive and expecting another errand on Thursday.  My next post will be about a week later.  Try Hard Vising You till then♪

Still works if you mention it in this post’s comment form (linked)

Your husband is always so kind! The ducks are very pretty floating on the river :-) And such beautiful captures of dragonfly! I didn't realize サザンカ was English "sasanqua," haha. Those are gorgeous blossoms and looks like the butterfly is enjoying it :-)
Have a fun time at the orchard! Twenty boxes are a lot to handle, but your frined sure appreciates it :-) Have a great day, Miyako san xoxo

You and your husband make a great nature photography team -- you find the ducks, he finds the butterflies and dragonflies -- and all of your pictures are wonderful.

I remember your cousn's Orange orchard and am glad you get to go again. We will be seeing some starting next month, when we will be going to Florida.

Beautiful ducks - we do not have that species here so I enjoy seeing them because they are so different! I love the traffic cone like a panda bear! Good luck with all the oranges!

Ida said...

What cute ducks, pretty flowers, butterflies and dragonflies. Those traffic fences are so adorable.

What a lovely collection of mosaics you've created this week, Orchid, I love the way that ducks tuck their heads under their wings when they sleep.
Have a wonderful time with your cousin, I look forward to seeing the mosaics you'll create after your visit.

Enjoy the orchard! I love the traffic cones. If we had cones like those, at least they would make us smile! I love to see ducks ... I love to watch them. Very entertaining! Beautiful dragonfly. Happy Monday!

The beautiful dragonflies are so fragile looking. The white flowers so pretty, and the cute road blocks (wish they would do that here!)
Hope you had lovely visits with the people you met:) Many thanks for sharing these with SEASONS, and have a lovely week!

Hello Orchid,
Ducks are always so much fun to watch with their diving under the water and washing themselves. Beautiful flowers, too. The traffic cones are so cute! I hope you had a good visit to your cousin's orchard.
