More Summer Memories from Jake's Camera

I will not try to identify these insects.
Jake and I hope these pictures will stir pleasant memories in your heart.
Great are the works of the Lord. Psalm 111:2

Dear Ruth, Beautiful summer memories. I know how long you have to sit and wait for the insect, butterfly, or dragonfly to show up and what infinite patience you it takes. But how wonderful when you get a good picture. Well done.

Thanks for giving us that warm, summer feeling even as the snow is falling. I love the red tractor scene with the puffy clouds.

Oh, Jake & Ruth - how nice to feel the warmth once more from your summer memories! Such a contrast from our present conditions ;-)
My favorite is that peaceful farm scene - outstanding! Should be on a calendar!

Pleasant memories indeed ! I love looking at summer photos in the gloomy winter. That red tractor, the hay, and the clouds make for a perfect picture.

Lovely picures from Jake. So desr to my heart is the haymaking scene as all around me is dry grass, the temp. is 30C+ and there is a sweltering, dessicationg wind houwling from the inland desert.

The insests are a bumble bee, Dragonfly and moth.

I like the look of round hay bales in the field. Beautiful warm pictures. Your dragonfly is a 12 spotted skimmer, one of the few I can ID because the name makes sense.

The next to the last is a dragonfly, can't go any further than that though. Am sure you knew that much. Like the bee with the lupine, like them all. But my favorite is the old tractor and new type of hay bale.

Thanks for visiting my new blog and setting to follow.
