Blue Skies

There's not a cloud in the sky..
...but I did find the moon...

 ...and the sun...
 ...and more blue sky...
 ...and a Red Flat Bark Beetle...a pretty and useful creature--"their larvae produce glycerol, an anti-freeze protein, that enables them to survive to temperatures as low as -100C and scientists say knowledge of glycerol could be used to create a solution to cool human organs in order to preserve them, to create a non-toxic de-icing solution for aircraft, or a concrete that will set in colder temperatures."

Gorgeous day! And I learned something new:)

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
Lise

That Beatle looks like something my kids made with rubber beads and a silly little oven they had years ago.

I've never heard or seen them.

He's a cute critter...I believe that God has provided us a solution for everything, and a cure for every disease in nature. He can do his part! :-) Nice blue skies. Enjoyed the post!
