Let me tell you more about fire ants…if you look at the above photo you will notice bald spots in my coat…thanks to the fire ants. Fire ants are a serious problem in the low country…although some areas anywhere south of the Mason Dixon line suffer with the little Devils, though not to the extent the low country suffers.
Fire ants are not to be confused with red ants which are not as hazardous to ones health.
My Humans get our yard sprayed twice a year, spring and fall, to prevent the little critters. When they sprayed this year the wetland was underwater much higher than normal. The lower part of the lawn became wetland.
Since you were near the river I’m thinking either a mosquito or fly bite Hawk…Have to come back to see for sure…Love the colors and effects in the last photo…
Ah, Gizmo my friend, thank you. I asked my Human about that photo…she was playing with her camera focus and hasn’t been able to duplicate it…As for the mirror effect…that happened when I placed the photo into the “writer”…it just happened…So y’all, that photo was an accident and neither my Human nor can take credit.
I received lots of questions about my Wordless Wednesday post (here), or see photo below.
Hey Hawk have you been fishing?
Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Love your smile Hawk. Can’t help but wonder what is making you so happy.
You look so happy, did you just go for a swim or to fetch?
How was the water, Hawk? Is the water getting colder yet?
*high paws* for a Happy Wednesday!
Looking good Hawk – nice smile…like you’re up to something.
Any success on the fishing trip, Hawk?
Did you catch anything Hawk.
The truth be told I was just coming out after washing those nasty fire ants off my legs and belly. My Human sent be back out again to chase my ball. She said she wanted to be sure there weren’t any on the rest of me! So I got a nice swim.
No, the water hasn’t cooled much, but I haven’t seen the gator lately.
My Human said she’s going to take the flashlight down to the inlet that comes up into the lawn. If no eyes are lookin’ back, she’ll start lettin’ me fetch bumpers from the water again. YES!!!
I had a question about black n white Sunday’s post I’ll address tomorrow.
Got to go get some exercise now!
My Human is jogging with me twice a day again…early and late ‘cause it’s still too hot mid-day.
Y’all come back now!
