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 […]


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 […]


Yesterday I ran into an odd woodpecker. I thought I’d highlight him here – he struck me funny the minute I saw him; the most interesting aspect was his size. He was very large and looked quite chubby for a woodpecker. I definitely had to pull out Mr. Sibley’s book for this one… I identified […]


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 […]


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 […]

I’ve heard it said another way; the devils in the details. I’ve […]


Today was much too rainy to be out and about. I made a few attempts to wander the backyard but the birds were hiding from the incoming storm. Not that I blame them; my children were too and it is very rare to see them watching television. One a trip we made today I ran […]


Before I start babbling I’d like to first post a link to Montucky’s in the field woodland star – he did a fabulous job of capturing it and it’s completely worth a peek. Honestly I would have attempted to capture this in field however, there was just one flower and it was bitter cold outside! It […]


…and today is one of them. Yesterday I was running a 102 degree temp because my kiddo’s brought an illness from Orient school and the fever finally broke late last night. So I went back to the buttercups and took a shot at about six o’clock in the evening. The sun had not completely set […]
