Another gift from Angelica. It just takes my breath away to realize the great diversity that comes about by natural selection. No need for the god hypothesis.   Continue

Oh thanks Idaho Spud! Katydids are so cool!
Comment by Idaho Spud on September 10, 2012 at 12:09pm

I didn't remember what it was until I got on Google Image and Katydid popped into my head.  That's what it is.

How wonderful Idaho - a rainbow before the rain.
I like that cool picture you posted here. Looks like an insect that I need to look up the name of.

I've tried several more times to spot a hummingbird at the trumpet vine, but no luck.  However, I did see a rainbow this morning as the thunderstorm started.  By the time I retrieved my camera from the basement, the rainbow was gone, but I did capture this bird.  It's one I haven't seen in probably 30 years.

Hey Joan! Yes Cedar Waxwings are in my area and I saw them during winter migration. They are the most beautiful birds! (One of the most)

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 9, 2012 at 11:18pm

Steph, I had no idea Cedar Waxwings are so lovely. Are they in your area? 

Tony, your glass frog and Andean Cock-of-the Rock are most intriguing and exotic. What a wonderful diversity of living forms.

Weather forecast change. Seems an expected cold snap is diverted. Whew! It is 9 PM and 64 degrees. More ripe tomatoes ahead!

Wow! A glass frog! I love how you can see the organs Tony! I'll have to research that frog.
Melinda that is music to my ears. : )
Nature is diverse and wonderful!
Comment by Tony Carroll on September 9, 2012 at 8:47pm

Yes Melinda, it is just so amazing how evolution works. It is mind boggling. I know this isn't a bird, but here is something else I have that blows me away. A glass frog.
