9.16.2021: Stopped by "Field of Flags" at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park today. A misty rain was falling and low clouds engulfed the mountain top. Very few people were there. It was a very peaceful feeling. Thanks again to the Kiwanis Club of Marietta for making this possible.

9.14.2021: Many people believe when a cardinal lands in your yard, an angel is near. Cardinals can remind you of a departed loved one and are known as the most notable spiritual messenger. To others the sighting of a cardinal can be a sign of good luck and loyalty. Native American lore states if a cardinal is seen, it is believed that individual will have good luck within 12 days of the sighting. To Braves fans, Cardinals often bring despair and reminds them of how the "infield fly rule" can be a nightmare.

9.7.2021: Meet Atlanta Firefighter Chris Peringer. Each September Chris wears well over 50 pounds of bunker gear and climbs Kennesaw Mountain twice in succession to honor the firefighters who entered and climbed the stairs in the Twin Towers on 9/11/2001. It was our honor to meet him today. If you get a chance, visit the Field of Flags at Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield Park. I’ll post more Field of Flag photos later.

08.29.2021: Okay, so I stumbled upon this "kill" today while hiking #kennesawmountainnbp. Something buzzed by my head and I saw it pounce on a very unlucky yellow jacket on the side of a tree. The "creature" then carried the yellow jacket to a small branch of a nearby tree where it appeared to enjoy lunch. Two questions. Does anyone know what type of "creature" this is? And, does this foreshadow bad luck for the Georgia Tech football team?

UPDATE: Thanks to Jason Lesley and John Cown, the creature has been identified as a Robber Fly or Promachus.

You've got a friend in me 
You got troubles, I've got 'em too 
There isn't anything I wouldn't do for you 
We stick together and see it through 
'Cause you've got a friend in me 
You've got a friend in me"
