On the Kancamangus Highway

 Here's a TON of picture's I took on our trip to Franconia Notch, These ones are all on the highway.

 Mom said we look like mermaids! 

 None of the pictures properly show the beauty of it all...

 Little tadpoles in the river! 

Evening in the Barn

 I was Milking Matilda and I turned my head and  something about the way my new couple bales of hay looked caught my eye...I hollered to Mary who was playing with her chick and asked her if she'd get me the camera. I took the picture using a lot of different settings. I think they came out nicely but they are dark (it was late in the evening as I was milking).

 I did some with flashes because of how dark the others were but I really don't like the look the flash gives to pictures

 The babies were watching me through their stall door (you can see one of them in the middle dark one) and wanted attention so I messed around with my camera some more and took some pictures of them through the wire.

Tuck Everlasing

We watched the movie Tuck Everlasting the day before I took this picture on the Kancamagus highway.  Mom said it reminds her of one of Tucks lines...

What we Tucks have, you can't call it livin', we just are. 
We're like rocks stuck on the side of a stream... 

Of course you have to hear it with the accent...He does such a good job with that line! 
If you haven's seen the movie you should watch it, it's very good.

Would you have drank from the spring?

Carnivorous Bumble

 LOOK AT THAT! I painted my milking stand bright green-yellow and insects and bugs like it because of the color, This bumble bee alighted on it while Larissa and I were at the Farmer's museum. It was holding a dead beetle with what looked like a thorn coming out of it's mouth area. I'd never seen any thing like it. The bee kept flying away and coming back all the time holding this beetle, I for one had no idea that bees ate beetles! I held the bumble bee many time (I do that a lot with my fuzzy friends and they usually fly right off) and he didn't seem to care, he would just stand on me not seeming to notice that he was in my hand. He was the weirdest bumble bee I've ever seen. I think I got pretty good pictures of it too.
