Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of our local fair. Entry was only $0.75 per person. All rides were $0.75 and a multiple ride ticket was only $7.50.
It was crammed with people …. eating and riding those thrill giving rides. I was not one of those riding. Way too chicken. And the food is way to greasy for my taste. I did enjoy the exhibits, though. I even won a few blue ribbons in my categories. I’ll post pics of them later.
Here’s one of those rides that scare me (I’m more a merry go round person).
Yesterday, I heard a tapping at my kitchen window. So I went to investigate. One of my cats had the same idea. He was up there staring fixedly at something, his tail twitching wildly. When I got closer I noticed a bird pecking at the window. Don’t ask me why, I have no clue.
I grabbed my camera and ran outside to get a shot of this bird, but he flew off before I could even get him in focus. I stayed out there hoping he would come back, but he didn’t. I guess he had other plans.
I noticed something fluttering around out of the corner of my eye. I turned and walked toward the flutter and caught this critter when he landed.
I have been trying to get a descent photo of a butterfly all summer. Luck was with me.
