Predator and Prey

Lantern Festival MoBot 2015-08-28 6

BUT FIRST, WE INTERRUPT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING to announce the arrival of Ms. Audrey Crowe in Chicago yesterday afternoon, first child of our son, Andy, and his wife, Claire, and our second grandchild. All doing well. Pix to come.

So, where were we? Beginning a walk along the route of the Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden from beginning to end. It starts with some amphibians. Who's lunch for whom?

Lots more of this. And I did a lot of shooting at our Festival of Nations on Saturday and Sunday. And next weekend it's the big Japanese Festival back at the Garden. (Konichiwa!) Vast amounts of material.

Really nice made. Very appropriated in more dark circumstances.

Funny stuff.

Congratulations, and Audrey... ahhhh what a name!

Is 2015 going to be a baby year? :-)

Those are lovely critters. A photographer's delight.

Congratulations on your newest grandchild. Audrey is fortunate to have a rabid photographer for her grandfather. Her life is going to be well documented.
