  1. They do look strange in the landscape. First time I saw the miles of them it was strange as it is now.

  6. We have those first aliens all around us. There are 3 at the new football stadium at the University of North Texas. The second ones will be crossing our property soon. We're not happy about it, but have no choice.
    We found a Praying Mantis - common name, walking stick - last year. If I spent more time outside, I might see others, but when the temp. is 100+, I have not desire to be outside for any length of time.

  9. I spend a lot of time riding my motorcycle around Iowa, and I'm just enthralled every time I encounter those windmills. They do indeed look alien when seen from a distance... but up close, even moreso! You know what else is rather "other-worldly"? Seeing the blades, strapped to a trailer/truck and being transported... they are just so LARGE, it's hard to fathom. Alien indeed - great post!

  10. Funny, in Holland where there is much wind, we have many, many of such 'aliens'. Modern but als the old ones! See also my blog, regards,

  11. Your "aliens" look just like the ones I've passed in Indiana before! It's a pretty amazing thing the first time you ride by miles and miles of them!
