This catbird decided to pose for my camera.  They are good singers as well; all night long.

I found this cardinal on my way home Saturday morning.  It was missing its head feathers, which gave it the appearance of a skeksis from the movie The Dark Crystal.

Photo Friday: Nature’s Canvas

Every time I go out with my camera, I see the world like a canvas that nature is constantly painting on.  I found this scene the other day after a night of showers.

We have a few chipmunks living in the rocks in the gazeebo out side our building.  I found this one watching me come home from work.

There are no paintings, sculptures, or pieces of music that can compare to the beauty nature itself provides.

First Look Photo: Hay Fever Nightmare

July 12, 2017

Early in the morning, on my way home from work, I stopped at a bench to take a drink, and noticed what looked like a strange mist coming off some weeds.  Upon closer inspection, I discovered it wasn’t a mist, it was pollen being kicked up by the bumble bees landing on them.  Hay fever sufferers beware!

The good thing about cityscapes is the different angles, and lighting makes each shot unique.

I love photographing firework shows, and July 4th is the ideal day.  In the past I have been scheduled to work, or weather conditions weren’t accommodating, but this year was perfect, so I headed out.
