Skip if Squeamish- Live Crickets Containers at the Food Market in FL

Florida.  A couple of years ago.  I was shooting a friend’s daughter’s wedding. We stopped at the market to shop for supper.  Not for live crickets.  I just happened to see them there at the market.

 Remove bottom lid to fill?

This display was something I’d not seen before. Seemed an interesting offering in a food market. I have driven by signs for Live Bait over the years but never really thought about it as I’ve never gone fishing.  I didn’t pick a canister up to see if it was filled or empty.  There are no holes for air?  Maybe these are empty, waiting for you to fill them?  Maybe some of my friends and followers who fish or keep spiders will know.

I looked up Live Crickets and discovered there is a whole industry. Also read a lot about crickets being kept as pets.   People need them to feed their pet spiders and reptiles.  Never really thought about that either.

Maybe best not thought about.  The food chain.  These are for fishing?

Just a bit different photo to start off the week.  Once in second grade, a long time ago, we studied a unit on Grasshoppers and then the teacher opened a tuna size can of them and we all tried to eat a piece of grasshopper.  No kidding.  What I remember is that it was like the hull of a popcorn kernel and it was oily.  I can’t remember any taste to describe.  It did not taste like chicken.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

All lunging for the hard roll.

Inspired to post this shot after seeing the example of the Weekly Photo Challenge:  Unusual.  The largest lake in the Commonwealth-Pymatuning State Park.

I have never seen anything like this scene and it was much more dramatic in person. My friend Joan took me here when we went up to see the then abandoned Conneaut Amusement Park while staying with a friend of hers.  She had told me I wouldn’t believe it when I saw these fish. She was right! I have always wanted to post it but then it slipped my mind until I saw Sara Rosso’s email from WordPress today.

Perhaps a video would capture the effort of these creatures, desperate to get the Italian hard roll.  They are all on top of one another.  It seems a crowded existence.

The Most Creative Groom Thought of this Shot

Tuesday night I uploaded the final card of wedding photos from the weekend and found this image. It was Jesse’s idea.  I think it’s really creative. The Juniata River was high and was rushing by.  This river is well known for the fabulous trout fishing.  But the groom had the idea with the fishing pole and hook, and his bride, Lauren, landed her groom.  Honestly, to me it looks as if Jesse is standing in the river!  They were a lot of fun.  Photos on the track, in the dugout, on the mound, by the scoreboard- it was a fun shoot!  And ALL their idea.  But the fishing rod and line were all Jesse and I think he came up with a most creative shot for me to catch as he got caught.  I asked on Sunday at brunch if it would be okay to blog the fishing shot but then got taken with the  bridal party in the dugout. Found this one Tuesday night and hope they don’t mind my posting them again!  Way to go Jesse, and I know there has never ever been so beautiful a fisherbride ( what is the female for fisherman?)

On Walters’ Pond- They Had to Throw it Back

A cookout. Kids running around playing ball. Some on the swing set. Men teaming up to play cornhole. A group of kids on the dock.  Hamburegers hotdogs on the grill.  Salad and fruit.  Macaroni and cheese.  The kids actually caught a little fish and threw him back.  I photographed several of the families so they could have a family picture.   It was a beautiful summer night.
