...but it's not my front yard either!
We spent a couple of days in the Colorado mountains this past weekend and I finally got a chance to take a few photos.
I also learned that spending a lot of time at high elevations requires patience and moving slower than usual, something along the pace of a government employee I think. LOL

Just down the street from the Hawaii Civil Marriage Office from yesterday's post I came across this... Obviously the City has had problems with pressure reducers and water meters going missing in the past and was taking no chances with this one!
I'm thinking this would be a fun challenge for someone who fancied themselves an amateur Houdini or Chris Angel wanna be!

According to my "sources" Q has been getting in some good photo time while on vacation. And by sources I mean Val of course!
I received this photo from Val just about an hour ago, sent from her phone, and if she sent it the same time she took it then it had to be around 6:45 a.m. Kaua'i time. Q will make you work for those good photos!
This one Val shot using her i-pad. I sure hope Q shows her how to use a real camera. LOL
I worked on both photos "just a little" in photoshop before posting them.

At least I'm assuming it's a juvenile...
The other weekend we were having a hot dog roast up at the lake, I got up from my camp chair to get something and when I returned this little guy was sitting on my chair. I almost didn't see him and would have squished him had I sat down.
After taking a number of pictures of the little fellow I set the camera aside and went to sit down but he still wouldn't move! So I reached down with my right hand and he climbed right onto my finger, no fear! I got to get a picture of this I thought to myself. One little problem, ever try to run a full size DSLR camera with your left hand? Wasn't going to happen so no picture of a dragonfly perched neatly on the tip of my finger but a funny story to go with the picture I did get!

Unlike the not so common Indian Paintbrush I posted yesterday, the Devils Paintbrush flowers are showing up in numerous places, especially along roadsides and unkempt lawns.
Thank you to TexWisGirl for helping me figure out the name of this flower around this time last year!
