February 25...  Beach #7.  Hope you are not getting tired of pictures from my beach. If not I have a few more to come. I am proud that a TV station has shown 2 of the previous beach-pictures at prime time.
August 27, 2011-Caught another Promachus - Giant Robber Fly in the field by some power line towers. I was actually looking for some dragon flies but never saw any. The winds started picking up over night. So I am going to post early while I still have power. Stay safe everyone.  (239:365)
5-24: We were trying to find a place called Butterfly Woods natural area and this very friendly horse ran over to the fence and let us pet her and feed her some grass. There were some cool patterns in the sky above so I decided to get a shot.
2-05: Another from Monday evening. I was actually hurrying to get to another location and kinda liked the look here so I snapped off a few shots. I think it sorta looks like fall colors on the trees
May 2:  Leaf: It was windy here last evening when I was doing the POD and we found this bunch of leaves on the back deck when we out to get something.  THought I could make something of this so I brought it in to try.  Very late last night I had an idea when taking shots and this the result.   This is not a crop, but a full shot with my macro.  I lit the leave with one SB200 flash (small) from the rear at a 45 degree angle to the leave to get this effect.  The veining on the rear popped with this lighting. EXIF: D200 on a tripod ISO 125 1/160 sec, f/9.0 +1/3 EV single R1 SB200 flash
A beautiful monarch butterfly .  I photographed this colorful creature before he headed out on the long journey south.   Have a great day all...

October 10, 2009 - "Majestic Yellowstone Morning "    This two stitch image was shot our first full morning in Yellowstone.  The mountain splendor was highlighted in the early morning light.  Yellowstone is not a place for sleeping in!  We were on the road at 730am each morning we were in the park.
August 28, 2010 update - "Clouds Over Grapevine"  An 8x10 version of this photo won Best Of Show and 1st Place in the City Views category for the annual "What's Great In Grapevine" photo contest.  There were 106 amateur entries in the juried contest.  January 31, 2010 - "Last Train To Ft. Worth"  This was shot last Sunday at the historic Grapevine, Texas railroad station.  I was checking out a Lake Grapevine marina for photo ops but did not see anything I liked.  On the way home I noticed there were not many cars parked at the railroad station, so took the opportunity to shoot.That makes two Sundays in a row that my alternate venue has worked out :)  Tourist trains run from Grapvine to the historic Ft. Worth Stockyards.  footnote to Ed's comment - was shot HDR

December 5, 2009 Daily Photo.  The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.   It was supposed to snow but it was raining. I took lots of close-ups but I think this best shows the scale. I'll make a "Christmas In New York" gallery when I get a chance.
Pour Dominique - Jun 5 2009  An agility friend left us today... quite suddenly. We will remember her as a good person who had an incredible will to overcome the setbacks life threw at her health wise. She loved her dogs and our sport tremendously and will be missed... it's so strange and beyond comprehension to realize that someone you saw last week isn't there anymore.  In her spirit I choose for a white rose... have a safe journey Dominique.
05/24/10 - Sitting Pretty I took this butterfly shot at the Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh yesterday.  In conversation, I always refer to this place as The Dinosaur Museum.  They boast Willow the dinosaur with a heart, a giant ground sloth, a T-Rex skull, and the best Acrocanthosaurus specimen found to date.  Started in 1851, this 'new' version free to the public makes for a great place to spend some time on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  Although much smaller that the Butterfly House at the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, their butterfly display is also very enjoyable, and that's where I took this picture.  Ya gotta know that I would have given anything back at home to somehow remove that man out of my shot!  But the clarity of the butterfly and especially his eye which can be best appreciated at larger sizes made this my POTD anyway.    In other news at the museum, we saw the sloth climb his rope!  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Marbles-Kids-Museum/Marbles-Kids-Museum-052310/12288787_HT48s#876709398_j7Quc You know, about every 4th or 5th visit he might actually open an eye or move a few inches, but yesterday he traveled 10 feet!  The gallery with all the pictures from yesterday's trip to the Natural Sciences museum and Marbles Kids Museum (yes, I was there too!) are here:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Marbles-Kids-Museum/Marbles-Kids-Museum-052310/12288787_HT48s#876670249_jbVVX  Thank you all for your comments yesterday especially the really nice ones about Johnny's portrait...  HAGD, Maryann
