… a few days ago I was enjoying watching One in full predator mode … nothing was safe! In this sequence of shots there is a grasshopper on top of the barbeque and if you look closely you can see the grasshopper beginning a leap to avoid the rapidly approaching predator named One … the second shot taken 1/12th of a second later shows One cresting the ledge and reaching for the grasshopper and also the grasshopper happily making its  escape flying up and to the right with wings fully spread and going on to perhaps a gourmet food company where he can be canned and presented to us via Amazon.com at https://www.amazon.com/Newport-Jerky-Company-Edible-Grasshoppers/dp/B01D9452U6/ref=sr_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1502783626&sr=8-5&keywords=chocolate%2Bcovered%2Bgrasshoppers&th=1 … DOUBLE DARE YOU :+)

Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: The journey

… I had a wonderful time in San Diego this weekend and made the trip home Saturdayafternoon. After crossing back into Arizona late afternoon I could see the clouds building and lightning beginning to flash all along the northern part of I-10. I made my usual turn onto US 60, heading along a sparsely traveled road into mounting storm clouds. Before Hope, the sky opened up and I was in one the heaviest downpours I have been in for quite a while. The desert gave the appearance of a shallow lake and my windshield wipers were not keeping up with the rain … then a magnificent rainbow appeared … out came my trusty Samsung Galaxy S-5 and here is the view at about 50 mph between wiper strokes.

William Andrews Clark, who operated the United Verde Copper Mine in Jerome, shrewdly saw the advantage of water power instead of hauling fuel more than 1500 miles over mountains and slippery road beds. The Childs and Irving Hydro Plants would never be able to produce the electricity needed and a large steam generating plant was built 3 miles north of Clarkdale to help meet this need. Read More→
