The bite is healing decently today. Around noon it started getting a bit more irritated looking so we gave it another dose of triple antibiotic. In a few minutes it started getting dimmer and behaving. Not it just itches now and then. We still wish we knew what bit/stung the OFM.



A couple of days ago during a walk, the OFM noticed a single spider web strand going between two branches. He thought it was neat. Therefore it needed to be photographed. We know the Team $100 Camera was likely in over the OFM's head trying to get that photograph. But Mr. Hardhead went on with the folly at hand.



When we checked the fantastic cheap camera memory that night we had a picture of the web strand! After a little editing for size of image we saved it for our readers to enjoy.





We think it is a pretty neat picture to have.



Then today on the morning walk, the daylight was a lot different than yesterday and this bloom going to seed looked a lot different today. Today the light hitting the old blossom made it look like it had multicolored lights on it. We checked out several of the old blooms and each one seemed to be reflection a different hue of color. When we started on the blog tonight, a choice was made to show this sparking bloom.



We had never seen this phenomenon before and really enjoyed it.

Several more neat things happened today and that made for a great day of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  1. Whatever that was, I don't want to run into it. Glad you are better. Sheesh. Interesting phenomenon for sure with that seed head or whatever it is. Hm. Second time I've said "whatever."

    1. I plan to keep track of that seed head for a few days.

  2. Might your bite be a chigger? If so, the best way to treat it is to cover it with nail polish which smothers it. I use clear polish since I'm not fond of pink polka dots. :)

    1. Thank you for the suggestion. Not likely from the style of it. I have been chigger fodder all my life and am very familiar with them. Since I got up this morning I can clearly see the puncture hole in my chest like one of those huge marsh mosquitoes down on the Gulf of Mexico leave behind..
