OLD LADY LINCOLN
Sorry I didn't post last night. Fell asleep at my computer again! I was up editing pictures. This bug is a Cicada(not sure of spelling). We always used to call them katydids. I was sitting outside Monday night playing with Mouse, one of the neighborhood cats, and she started playing with this bug. Michael went in and got a dish and caught it and put it in the maple tree. I think Mouse got it anyway.
This pic is one of my white hibiscus. I was playing around in Photoshop last night. This effect is neon glow blue.
This is Charcoal and Chalk. The yellow came into play because I had chosen that color for a different project and it stayed in this one.
This one drove me crazy! I was playing around with all the different filters to see what the effects would be. I got this effect from a single filter, but for the life of me, I have no idea which filter is was. I even tried them all again, never got the same effect! Just my luck!
These are two Cicada shells. One was on the trunk of the tree and the other was on the handle of a shovel propped against the fire pit in the neighbor's yard. I put them on the low branch to take the pic. I would have used more, but they were all out of my reach. I'm a little on the vertically challenged side. In other words, SHORT! That about does it for now. I may see you again tonight.
