Photography:  Backyard Visitors, Mariam My Feline Friend (#1)

We have a cat that has been visiting us almost daily.  She has been in our neighborhood for over a year now.  From what we can tell, she is a homeless cat that was abandoned.  She visits us almost daily if we are home and somehow, if she smells that we are cooking chicken –…

Photography: Crazy About Bunnies (#2)

We went to the park again last week to enjoy the weather, rabbits, birds, flowers, and bugs.  Nothing was more relaxing.  I got plenty more photos of rabbits to share with you.  This time, they have grown since I last saw them (two weeks ago).  They have a richer color fur growing in and they…

Photography: I Don’t Want To Bug You (#3)

I know that it has been a while since I have posted an all bugs post, so I decided to do another one.  With summer officially here, I have found that there are fewer bugs to find – especially in the heat of the day.  Now, that may be me being more restless because I…

Photography: Breathtaking Landscapes

I am not normally one to take landscape pictures, but recently, there has been so much beauty around that I couldn’t help myself.  My camera isn’t very good at taking landscapes, but I was surprised to find that some of them did turn out really nice.  Half of these photos are from a boating trip…

Photography: The Better To See You With

While we were at the park this week, there were many interesting bugs flying around.  They were really fast, but I was lucky enough to get a few photos of a fly that was running around on the leaves.  He was really fast, so I had a hard time getting a lot of good ones….

Photography: Crazy About Bunnies! (#1)

  This week we decided to take a break from going to the gardens and go to a park instead.  There were so many bunnies there, it was crazy.  We saw at least twenty in one visit.  Mostly, there were young ones, but occasionally, you would find the bigger, older bunnies that were watching over…

Photography: I Don’t Want To Bug You (Post #2)

With spring now here, there are bugs everywhere I look.  So, when I went to the botanic gardens last week, I was excited about which bugs I was going to see.  There were so many to photograph that if I wanted to, I could have stayed in one place during the whole visit and gotten…

Photography: Garden Views on a Beautiful Day (Post 01)

This past week we have gone to the gardens several times and I really enjoyed it.  I don’t think I could ever get bored there.  There is just so much to see!  There were many bugs and plenty of flowers to take photos of.  Below are a few of my favorite pictures that I took…

Daily Post Photography Challenge: Evanescent Sunsets

This week’s photo challenge is evanescent.  Whenever I pick up my camera it reminds me of the evanescent nature of all things, but especially sunsets.  You have to take a picture quick or it will fade away and you will miss the opportunity.   I used to struggle with taking pictures of sunsets, not really…

Photography: I Don’t Want To Bug You (Part 1)

We went to the gardens again yesterday.  It was extremely hot and sunny, but I managed to get a few photos.  They didn’t turn out all that well, so I decided to share some of my old bug photos.  I am always trying to get as close to bugs as possible hoping to get a…

Photography: First Day at the Gardens

Yesterday was our first day out to the gardens.  School is finally out so it was cause for celebration.  I was glad to finally have my camera in hand and I could finally take as many pictures as I wanted without worrying about the time.  We are so crazy, we are going back today to…
