Il capolino fiorale di un cardo non è cosa semplice. Si tratta, in realtà, di parecchie decine di fiori, collocati in strette sequenze concentriche. Questo significa che visitarli tutti e dunque inserire la spiritromba in ciascuno, alla ricerca del nettare, divine una missione impegnativa per una farfalla. Missione a cui la stessa farfalla, in questo caso un Macaone, si dedica comunque con ammirabile solerzia ..... ..
Il fior di loto è sbocciato e sta esponendo al sole la sua magnificenza. E' gigantesco, ma un piccolo sirfide sembra non scoraggiarsi e si accinge ad esplorare le riserve di nettare e di polline del fiore. La sua è una missione impegnativa e probabilmente, nel continente asiatico, in cui la pianta è autoctona, i pronubi sono di specie e dimensioni diverse. In questo caso, però, il Sistema Naturale ha trovato questa soluzione ..... ..

These are bells at Mission San Juan Capistrano. The mission dates back to 1776, founded by Catholic priests, but I don't know when these bells were cast. They are huge - wish I had a daughter standing by them but she hid.

En 2017, j'ai visité cette mission espagnole en Californie.
La Purísima Mission State Historic Park is a state park unit of California, United States, containing La Purisima Mission, considered to be the most completely restored Spanish mission in California.
A wet soggy fall day up Mission Creek. I didn't quite make it to the falls, but I did manage to get soaked. :-) All good!
Happy Sunday all!
To Group: Maine, Montana and Wisconsin Theme: I can't believe I got this shot! :-)
Every year it's the same. A single week of beautiful sunny autumn weather with trees in unbelievable full color and the trouble to hit a free day to be able to chase it with the camera. Too early or too late means much less or no color at all in trees and a year to be wasted. Luckily I've made it again, phew! Mission accomplished...

The Mission Point Lighthouse is located at the tip of the Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, Michigan. This Lake Michigan lighthouse was built in 1870.
By the mid 1850s, shipping on Grand Traverse Bay had grown substantially. A lighthouse on the northern tip of Old Mission Peninsula was needed to warn of the rocky shallow point. In 1859 Congress appropriated the funds, however the light was not completed until 1870.
The first lighthouse keeper was Jerome M. Pratt, who kept a detailed journal of passing ships. On the first day he noted 5 vessels- 2 schooners, 2 steamers and one bark. An entry in 1875, only 5 years later, listed 101 steamers and 75 sailing ships.
Mission Point Lighthouse had only 7 keepers in the 63 years it was in service. In 1933 the old lamp was decommissioned and eventually replaced by an offshore buoy light.
The Mission Point Lighthouse is located exactly on the 45th parallel or halfway between the North Pole and the Equator.

Mission San Juan Capistrano , located in Orange County, California, is commonly referred as “Jewel of the Missions" due to its rustic beauty. Founded in 1776, this Spanish mission has the distinction of being home to the oldest building in California still in use, its chapel. The mission originally had six buildings, including the grand church which was destroyed in an earthquake and never rebuilt. The remaining walls act as background to the mission's lush gardens, boasting adobe bricks and tiles, prominent arches, and a bell tower.

Here is the story behind this picture when I was participating in a group called Macro Mondays (MM).
The picture came about because of MM GMT 27 June 2016 with the theme "bubbles". I tried creating soap bubbles and letting them stay or float on top of leaves of plants at the balcony of my apartment. I was not good at making bubbles. Somehow I managed to have a few bubbles on the leaves, but not enough time to take a decent picture before the bubbles burst or quickly shrunk in size. I nearly gave up on what appeared to be a mission impossible (to me at least).
Then I thought it may be necessary to pay a visit to a nearby shop that sold fanciful stuffs to see if I could come up with some ideas. The shop had small transparent capsule spheres (about 10mm diameter) which may be circulated in water to look like bubbles. Fake bubbles! I bought some of them to do first what was possible.
At first, I just placed one of the spherical capsules on the leaves. It was light enough to stay on them. I took a few macro shots using an extension tube. They did not turn out nice. Then I thought of dipping the spherical capsule in soap water to give its surface a slippery look, to create a more realistic appearance of a bubble. I placed the capsule soaked with soap water on the leaves and was a bit excited to see a few tiny but real bubbles forming beside the capsule. I started taking pictures, but I could not successfully capture the real bubbles on the side of the capsule. I tried various settings on my camera but still to no avail. I kept trying. But now with only three hours of GMT Monday left, I still have not achieved the "impossible" yet.
I decided to give up now and post in MM the best picture (sans real bubbles) I took yesterday (that is, this picture). Since the "bubble" in the picture was not a real bubble, I don't mind if the moderators of MM decide to disqualify my picture and pull it out of the group. It will still remain in my photostream as a record of my experience of this MM.
But I believe that if I keeps on doing what is possible, I will find myself doing the impossible. For now, there is still one possible thing for me to do. To have a few hours of sleep before going to work!
P.S. The first thing I did when I woke up this morning, before getting ready to go to work, was to check if this picture had already been banished from the posting of the MM group. Instead of seeing the picture expelled, I saw a comment by the administrator of the group that the picture stays "even if it is a fake bubble." A fake bubble is a bubble after all! The impossible has become possible.
Mission Sonoma, the northernmost of twenty one missions, marks the end of California's Mission Trail.
Founded by Father Jose Altimira on July 4, 1823, it was the only mission established after Mexico's independence from Spain and the only one not to receive prior approval from the Church.
The official name is Mission San Francisco Solano, so named in honor of St. Francis of Solano, a 17th century missionary to the Peruvian Indians.
Damaged by the 1906 earthquake, Mission Sonoma was reconstructed by the Historic Landmarks League.

Mission Sonoma was founded in 1823.. the last and northernmost of the 21 missions in California.
Happy Bench Monday
I have been trying forever to figure out how to use these cats in a pic :)

This is the backside of the Mission on the hill in Winterhaven, California at sunset. The most colorfull part of the sunset was in the opposite direction, but I liked this way too.
Well my dear MM-friends, I really tried to make a macro of this wonderful cheese inside of the trap, but only a second later
- I swear - I only was able to photograph those crumbs of it. So it was truly not my default .. the mouse must be an „Ethan Hunt“ of the mice .. or something like that 😉
Oh, I hear something?

One of my Flickr friends and I went for a photo shoot to Goliad TX... found the most beautiful buildings, and missions there. The small town, has around 1000 population, and has houses like you stepped back into history. Wanted to show more sides at one time, and tried this one, the really nice thing at that day was, that we had plenty of cloud cover...
Thank you all for looking at my stream, and your lovely comments. I do appreciate all of your loyalty.
Mission Beach had lovely hues of orange and peach and the wind this day swayed through the coconut palms. Another wonderful Queensland Beach.
