Friday Morning FYI – 9/30/2016

Welcome to your Friday Morning FYI – my chance to share observations/wisdom/rants in short, easily consumed form.

Autumn is here, and that means apple picking, long walks in cool night air, and camping/hiking among the fall foliage (maybe that last one is just a few of us). Hitting a local orchard with my girlfriend last weekend (seriously people, come out to west NJ) I happened upon a gorgeous monarch butterfly down on the grass. I took a few pics, and then not wanting him to get trampled, decided to see if he’d climb onto my hand so I could put him up on a tree. The result was three very cool minutes of communing with that little guy. I think I’ll make that this week’s FYI (yup, no lecture, no wisdom, just some pics):

  1. Thanks for sharing your experience, Ron. My husband and I had a similar moment in time but with a baby snapping turtle. We encountered it on a trail a couple of days ago. It was on the path so my husband moved it to safer grounds.

    1. Hi Patricia,

      I came across a turtle sitting in the middle of the road a few months back. Got out of my jeep and walked behind him to make him scurry for the side. Silly guy, hehe.

      Thanks for commenting!
