For anyone that wants to play along, my only suggestions (suggestions, not rules!) are: The color is the dominate focus in the image as opposed to a small spot in a lot of other colors. Drop a comment so I can follow along on your color journey. That's it! I hope you play along and… Continue reading Color Series: Blue Day 7
I was kneeling on the ground working on getting some photos of my autumn sedum when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. I fully expected to see a fly or a bee as they love the sedum. Instead, I get this intense looking guy hanging out on the hinge of my… Continue reading Eeep! No Thanks!
This is one not so brilliant, but phenomenally determined bird. They started building this nest above our garage earlier in the spring. Sadly, the location is horrible and catches the wind all the time. The nest got blown off at least 4 different times, but they were back within a day and building again. It… Continue reading New Neighbor
This little guy has been hanging out in our front flower beds. There may be several, but I haven't been able to get a good look before now, so I don't know if what I've seen scurrying across the sidewalk is the same one or different ones. Now that I've seen this one up close,… Continue reading Scaly Visitor
I'm going to admit that taking the photos of this made me really jumpy. Especially when I wanted to get this closer shot and I've got my camera up in this thing's face. When my flash pops up on the top of my camera, I jumped and maybe squealed a little bit because I thought… Continue reading Look Into My Eyes
For some reason, we are getting overrun with snails this year. There are very few times that you can walk outside a not see either the full snail or the shell they've left behind. I'm thrilled for the photo opportunities, but I just don't remember ever seeing so many of them before. The few minutes… Continue reading Snail Pace
Though missing part of its wing, this little butterfly (moth, not sure which) was still flying around and doing its thing. It is a reminder I think I need every once in a while.
This is an old one, but I shared it in another place recently and it reminded me of how much I love this picture, so I thought I'd share it here as well.
This was a quick shot taken as it was starting to get dark, but it was still a cool shot.
I was walking around in the yard the other day taking pictures. I have no clue why I decided to look down at that exact moment, but if I hadn't, I would have stepped on this little guy. I almost didn't even notice him when I looked. He was just hanging out in the grass,… Continue reading Yard Friend
Hubby came across this little guy huddled in the grass the other day when he was mowing and had to be careful. There was actually a second one, but ran into some bushes to hide. This one was still out there when he finished and I was able get really close and grab several shots.… Continue reading Today’s Cuteness: Baby Bunny!
