Our church had it's 4th annual 'Day of Thunder' event on Sunday. There were dozens of cars, both old and new, which hundreds of people enjoyed seeing. We had a church service, a free barbecue and entertainment, trophy prizes for different categories of vehicles, and bouncy castles, face painting and cotton candy for the kids. It was a wonderful day with lots of sunshine and just right temperature. I love vintage cars I guess because I'm a vintage person. :-}
There was this turquoise beauty from the 40's too.
And this '74 Dodge Charger. I bet it can almost fly!!
There were motor cycles and hot rods too.
This old Cadillac is from the 1950's. Just look at the bumper on that!! One wouldn't want to be rear ended by it that's for sure. It could do some serious damage.
This is my dream car. A '67 Mustang convertible. Isn't she a beauty? I've always wanted a Mustang.
Now, a change of topic. Here is a strange bug I saw the other day. I've seen them before along the roadside but never on one of my own plants. They 'hum' along like a hummingbird (only quietly) and hover over flower blossoms to drink their nectar. Do you know what it is?
This Hummingbird Moth almost stopped fluttering long enough for me to capture a good shot of it. Have you seen one this close before? I know someone shared one on their blog recently.
Here you can see the vibration of it's wings. Isn't God's creation amazing?
I captured this Swallowtail Butterfly the other day drinking at the Lantana on the deck. They are so pretty.
Then when it came on top I noticed it was missing one of it's 'tails'. It didn't seem to hinder it's abilities to get around though.
And lastly, I captured this bee right in the centre of a Rhododendron bloom. Isn't that a beauty?
Well, that's it for today. Thank you for stopping by and leaving comments about the larger font I'm using. It's a hit! :-}
If you're like me, a bit on the mature side, larger type is so much easier to read. Thanks again for your input! I appreciate it.
This is what it looked like before. See what I mean?
It's raining here today and a bit chilly with the wind so I guess I'll visit some blogs in between loads of laundry and maybe bake some chocolate chip cookies. Mm Mmm. I hope you have a beautiful day! Enjoy!
