. . . and some of the weirdest are found in my neighborhood!
Yesterday when Mike and I went for our morning walk, he took his camera along. He doesn't usually bring it, and just the day before, he was grumbling because he'd missed a chance to get some pictures of a raccoon that was sitting in somebody's driveway. Not that raccoons are particularly strange around here. I've seen lots of them back in my wandering days, though actually you see them mostly at night. But I digress.
So anyway, M grabbed the camera as we headed out yesterday, and I'm glad he did, because we saw something that was a first for me, and he was able to snap this picture of it before it disappeared over some trees:
M says the contraption is called a powered paraglider, or PPG for short, and that the guy flying it is called an accident looking for a place to happen.
A few days earlier we came across this flamingo flash mob. Once again Matthew Brady was sans camera, but close enough to home that he could run get it. (He didn't really have to run; I don't think those flamingos were going anywhere!)
I just love to discover the unusual, don't you?
