7-19: Saturday morning, while out shopping at garage sales, we happend upon a place called the Gardens at Spring Creek. It's a pretty little place and they have a pond with water lilies. This dragon fly (cross my fingers that it really is) was very cooperative (compared to others that I also thought were dragon flies). I took several pictures of it. This is one of my favorites - the color in the bg courtesy of some water lilies.
April 17, 2008    Looking for a handout.
PollenMaker-3503    Shot this today while on a break from mowing the yard.  I hate mowing so I keep the camera handy as a diversion just in case I run across anything interesting.  And, as luck would have it, I did.  I ran across a really cool looking grasshopper.  Unfortunately, he was a little too disfigured from the mower to be a much of a macro model - poor guy.  : (        Then I saw this pine flower on a low hanging branch and thought it might be an interesting subject for a closeup.    Shot handheld with the 70-200 and 36mm extension tube.  I'll likely try this again with the tripod, on a day with no wind, for a little more sharpness and DOF.
This guy was very in-tuned with my camera, every time he heard the shutter he looked and came a bit closer....last time he moved. my chair was in reverse!

1/19/09  AMERICAN GOLDFINCH (of course, details are better larger :-))  I'm still loving capturing birds on my little tree.  It's quite a challenge to get one sitting still long enough to capture it.  This was taken through the open kitchen window, leaning over the sink...freezing my fingers off...but well worth the pain and suffering. ;-)
June 11, 2008    Reflections of my world.     I was taking pictures of Gabe and his brother Gregory and this was the only one in the shot and the reflections I thought were kinda cool.    Just a note to all of you for your constant up lifting on my dailies. This is such a nice place to be everyday. I try to get something worthy everyday but just end putting up the best of what I took even if it isn't great technically it might be something special or meaningful. Oh well...I'll shut up now. Just wanted to say thanks.
Rufous Treepie  No PP except for a bit of a crop.     Shot at Ranthambhore national park     The Rufous Treepie (Dendrocitta vagabunda) is an Asian treepie, a member of the Corvidae (crow) family. It is long tailed and has loud musical calls making it very conspicuous. It is found commonly in open scrub, agricultural areas, forests as well as urban gardens. Like other corvids it is very adaptable, omnivorous and opportunistic in feeding.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranthambhore_National_Park    http://www.tigerwatch.net/    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rufous_Treepie    www.javeri.net
April 8, 2011-This large Eastern Carpenter bee and company have set up house on the ramp, right outside my door. Whenever I come out there they hover on either side of me and then start to chase each other and sometimes me off the ramp. I have been trying to capture them but the minute I focus on them they fly off. Not today! (Day 98:365 @sharkbayte)
8/19/12 - Black bear; best viewed in the largest sizes.  Photographed at Bear Country, SD.  When I took this shot, there were probably about forty bears within the range of my camera.  They were all moving around.  It was a hot day; this one has just gotten himself wet down by a hose. I found the bears to be difficult to shoot, as their faces were so dark.  I had to use the exposure compensation to lighten the face enough to pull out the detail there.  Thanks for the comments on my daughter's cat.  Much appreciated.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.
Ok, I will tell you all how I came about this shot.  While in Maui I was in a gallery and saw these amazing wave pictures by Clark Little(his shots are amazing).  I borrowed a cannon Powershot with an underwater housing from a friend for my trip, so that was step one.  Then while my wife lounged on the beach I spent several hours playing in the waves trying to get a decent shot.  So step two was just spending a lot of time getting bashed around by waves trying to get the timing just right.  And I did get a lot of wierd looks from people wondering what I was doing, but it was all worth it.  I am looking forward to going back again this time with my G11 and housing to try for some more shots.
011911  Pelican Landing    I went on a fishing trip with my son Matthew yesterday and pelicans followed the boat back into the marina. I thought this picture was fitting today since our trip has come to an end and we are flying back home late this afternoon.
August 8, 2011-Mug Shot. I swear he has lips and mustache. This is handheld, and could be a lot better, but thought the face was interesting even with the five o'clock shadow/stubble. (220:365)  thanks for all the comments on my shot yesterday!
20.03.10 - Spring is Springing  I actually took this on St Patrick's Day, but I've been working on it this evening in honour of the first day of Spring tomorrow. My last few Dailies have been a bit monochrome in different ways, so this is a good antidote to them too.  There are a few more photos of these spectacular crocuses here;   http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/Nature/THE-DAWBER-GARDEN/5370737_F9Haj#812707739_Qe7zv
January 17   In memory of "Vaks" who passed quietly away yesterday. He was for us a good, loyal  friend for 12 years, but as a Fox Terrier also setting his own priorities. He was our ship dog for 6 years when we were yachting in the summertime. When we moved to Fanoe his favorite  occupation was hunting rabbits. Until two year ago he caught at least one a day, and was so proud, when he returned home with his catch. This picture was taken in 2002 with my analog Leica M6 camera and later digitalized. Thank you for your comforting comments yesterday .
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
