Nighthawk Stealth of the Bug World

I was outside this early morning sitting in my garden with my cup of coffee just minding my own business looking around at all of the plants and bugs flying around. I didn’t notice this little black fly resting on top of this flower head.

But, after returning inside I took the picture off of the camera and into my trusty computer. There it was as proud as can be sitting as still as a mouse… Caught on digital camera for all of time, because as we all know these creatures don’t have a long existence.

I had to smile at this picture as it reminded me of the Military base we live on for eleven years. It was a Canadian Air Force Base where on any given day you could see planes of all types zooming across the sky. It was an amazing time spent on this base where it was a pleasure to live and begin raising our two children.

The base was also located along side of the airport for our town, and with the long runway here we would get to see the very large planes that glide through the skies.

What an amazing time that part of my life was with all of the Canadian Military men and women who flew over the rooftops of our houses on the base. Now that I live off the base after my husband passed away I still get to see those planes flying around in the skies over my house in town. I am proud to have been a part of the Military base as the wife of a Canadian Air Force man who served this beautiful country of Canada so proudly, with honor and pride to wear the uniform.

While writing this post for tomorrow’s blog I heard a loud rumble outside. Upon heading outside my pup scooted right in front of me to get through the door first, as always…Where ever I go so does she, and this is what I captured through the digital lens.

Thunder in the sky

Will the sun still shine, or will it rain?

My pup & I wish a marvelous day and evening for you all…

  1. In this part of England, we are surrounded by military and air force bases, both British and American. Many local people have a connection to one or other of those bases, and we see the fighter planes and helicopters flying over all the time.
    Not sure that I like the look of that bug though!
    best wishes, Pete.

    1. Pete, I think you either have to love the planes or hate them. The noise can be deafening to the ears, especially when they are in training mode. The fly was amazing to me after I was able to get a closer look at it. Thank you so much for your comments on Nighthawk Stealth & the Fly.. What did you think of yesterdays post? I drew the picture of Dorothy from Gone with the Wind on the Pen Tablet. I’m loving this new way of drawing outside of pen to paper and can do so much with it… I just hope I can finish all of the illustrations needed for my short story to come out in the Fall.. Wish me luck as I might need it… days go into each illustration for the story, until I can get better at it and move a tad faster… I should have begun them in the Fall instead when I’m indoors more due to the snow.. Take care, Laura


      1. I did comment on that post, but it didn’t appear for some reason.
        I thought that your rendition of Dorothy was first class! I also hoped that you avoided the worst of that storm.
        Best wishes, Pete.

      2. Pete, whew.. I was wondering if you missed that post of mine, but so happy that you didn’t and was able to see it .. The storm passed by us thankfully without very much rain, until the evening where we got a little shower.. still cloudy out there today, but not predicted to rain again, oh well.. we’ll see if they are right or not… My pup sure did hear the thunder in the far off distance though… she hid underneath the coffee table.. Perhaps, I should go into my admin and see if your other comment wound up in there for some strange reason.. any way all good in the end.. Thanking you kindly my friend..

        Take care, and enjoy your Saturday.. Laura
