This is one of the photos I took of the dastardly Yankee criminals as they attacked the 25th North Carolina Infantry in FrogTown near Franklin, NC on Saturday. I will have a full video and photo report of the battle later this morning.

This has been a cool summer for the most part. The nights have been cool in the valley, and the mornings have been refreshingly cooler.
This morning, I was reminded of a fall morning when I stepped out at 4 o’clock to listen to the birds cheerfully greet the dawn. It was one of those moments that I wanted to last forever, wishing that I could somehow save it for later recall.

Nothing could “Bee” finer than a diner in Caroliner.

I’ve never seen a Bumble Bee with green eyes before. Even though this fellow didn’t seem interested in stinging, it still looked mad to me with those eerie green eyes.

I’m beat. I spent all day in the sun (minus sunscreen), and have been up since 4 am…so this is the only photo I’m posting here tonight of the fireworks in Sylva.

Here is one of the exposures I took of the International Space Station and the space shuttle Discovery as they orbited over my house this evening.
The ISS keeps getting brighter and brighter as more modules keep getting added to the station. I was hoping I would catch a flare off one of the solar panels, but alas, not tonight. I hope to have more of these in the future, and possibly even snippets of video.
The squiggly line at the beginning was me taking a step back from the tripod, and the camera captured the ground vibration.
Tomorrow night, the station will pass in front of Mars, Saturn, and the Moon. I hope to be able to capture that if it is not cloudy.
