When Mother Nature gives you lemons...

I was hoping to get outside to take some photos today, unfortunately, Mother Nature had other ideas.  Heavy fog blanketed out county this morning preceding the heavy rain that will move in later.  Yuck. 

My hopes faded.  I even had my camera in hand.  Something about the light coming through my living room window caught my eye and when I walked in and looked through I saw this:

I'm linking the photo above to Favorite Photo of the Week

My title for these two is "Lemonade".
I desaturated and adjusted hue/satuturation in both.  I think these are in the running for my favorites of the month.

Linking up with This and That Thursday

Attack of the Orb Weavers

Last fall we didn't have one orb weaving spider near the house.

We had plenty of stink bugs though, ew.

But this year is different, we have four!

And, AND, I've caught them munching on stink bugs, YES!
The balance has been restored.  I'm happy, 
at least until I forget where they are and walk through their web.

Beautiful Morning

We had quite a rockin' storm last night with heavy rain and hail.  Our reward came this morning with cooler temps, lower humidity and sunshine.  I woke up early and took my camera outside.  It's mornings like this that remind me why fall is my favorite season.
