At least the water is still warm - unusually so for this time of year. But with a few more cold nights, it won't be swimming-temperature for long.

There was a large bass tournament on the lake this weekend, with lots of serious fisherman. But sometimes all the fancy equipment can't outdo a row boat and a fly rod!
On the nature front, I found quite a few of these bright green katydids over the past few weeks.
This guy had decided to take up a perch on a sponge right on our door step. Katydids are are also known as Bush-Crickets. If you want an easy way to differentiate a cricket from a grasshopper, just remember that crickets have long, thin antennae, while grasshoppers have short, thick ones.
If you've been outside at all, you've surely noticed all the mushrooms and fungi everywhere - here's a quite large one.
Just one week earlier this very same mushroom was a bright yellow.
