I thought I’d try to do something a little different… Here are the flowers that sprouted up this April. I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile to organize in my own mind what will sprout up when. I’m quite sure I did not get them all but this is what I did get. May […]


True story; No matter how hard I tried I could not find the identity of this flower. It came into bloom about two weeks ago and I faithfully took shot after shot of it. However… posting it was another story because I just could not find the species. I woke up this morning and I […]


When I posted the bird shots I was saddened that I had not seen in the last couple of days the cross bills however, they must have been hanging out at my feeder about the city equivalent of five blocks away. I keep one feeder far away from the house and hike the birdfeed in […]


Quick like a bunny I wanted to toss up a couple of wildflowers mostly because I was a little stunned myself. We have a pup that is visiting us this week and his name is Teddy. We call him Teddy Roosevelt so we, my pups and I, took him for a walk down by the […]

Hopefully this year is a bit better out on the water. … meanwhile,… back to the wildflowers. Tall Western Groundsel (Senecio integerrimus) And here is a telling shot of the plants design. […]

so much so I wish I had a bumblebee to post but sadly, I don’t. A couple things occupied my attention a local man who wanted me to get him some local photographs for a business trip. I also have had company as well. The good news I’ve had fun the bad news I feel […]


Tonight my son wrote a paper on procrastination and thinking of blogging I sure could relate. My excuses vary from planting trees to hiking and photographing more than tossing up a note or two. Instead of sharing the excuses with you I’ll share a few of the many photographs I’ve been gaining as of late. […]


I take a lot of shots and the key goal is to give them all time. From the small to the large. I keep avoiding waterbirds because when it comes to birding I am so weak at telling a mallard from a bufflehead. However, let’s see what we can do with all my endless shots […]
