Finishing up the Week.....
Living in suburbia north of the big city gives us new experiences. While watering flowers or mowing the yard I can look up and see the air traffic headed to, or leaving, the Des Moines Airport. I also can see the traffic of our local Ankeny Airport. The planes from the local airport are small planes and some biplanes. The sound of helicopters are not every day but it isn’t unusual for the life-flight kind and also the National Guard base near here. I took a wild shot and was surprise to pick out this plane with the camera.
This is not a butterfly but one of a mean looking flying insect. Our drought, I believe, has hastened the butterflies this year. I did see a wonderful swallowtail butterfly up at the old place two days ago.
We are getting ready for company from our son and his wife who live in Maine. They are headed to a vacation in Minnesota with Aunts and a cousin with family on Lake Pokegama. Our daughter-in-law is excited about visiting our downtown Farmers Market on Saturday. It is a very large venue and many people come from miles around to shop at it.
The weekend is almost here and I wish you all to have a great day today. Thanks for stopping by today.
