Scavenger Hunt Sunday 09.16.12

Nothing like showing up late to your own party!  This week's Scavenger Hunt items are sponsored by me, so I better play along, don'tcha think?  :)
My husband was off work this week so we spent Tuesday together.  We went to Living Treasures, went for a ride on a different bike trail, and then had lunch together.  While at Living Treasures the tigers weren't exactly kissing, but they did share a tender moment together.  As tender as tigers get, I guess, considering they were growling at each other while they nuzzled.

Most of you know that we raise Monarch caterpillars into butterflies.  Well, this week we got our hands on a Tiger Swallowtail caterpillar.  He was already an adult and ready to pupate.  I got to watch him weave this little harness onto the stick and was hoping to see him build his chrysalis, but he was sneaky and did it while I was gone on Thursday.  He'll be in chrysalis over the winter and we'll, hopefully, have a beautiful butterfly next Spring!

I don't know if our dahlias are fragrant or not but they certainly are beautiful!

Something as simple as getting to see the baby leopards at the zoo makes me so happy!

Doug found this stick bug the other day.  If he hadn't been moving around, I would have thought he was part of a plant.  He was really cool to watch!

My thanks to Ashley for using my suggestions for this week's hunt!  Be sure to stop by and see all the great photos!  If you want to play along this week, the items to hunt down are:

1) Cracked
2) Fallen
3) Ordinary Color
4) Bokeh
5) Fence 
Have a great week!
