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...

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.
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.
I finally caught her at the flower...smile
Butterfly in the tree....Almost didn't get posted tonight..still having internet problems!!
April 14, 2011-Hiding out.  While, I was coming around the back of the house I saw 6 cats scatter. This guy is the littlest cat from the group. (Day 104:365 @sharkbayte)
July 5, 2006 - Self-portrait in the rain. I have done the other side in the rain , so I thought of looking in this time ! Tripod, interval timer set, jumped into the car, and made a sad face - I don't know which part was more difficult. Of course, now it all too much reminds me of Sebastian's self-portait, so my subconscious must have been influenced !S- I couldn't find yours to link !thanks  A closer crop without the sideview mirror here

April 20, 2009 -  "Sign Of The Times" - This might be one way to use the remaining tangible assets of a failed bank.
4-22: Taken from Running Deer natural area on Sunday.
24.12.09 - Christmas Eve  Fog was the order of the day today. We've had a slight thaw, but tonight it is back below freezing again. I had a wonderful photo walk round the Cathedral this evening. The combination of fog, floodlights and the golden limestone was magical as always. This will be a very familiar view to most of you by now, but each time I stand here I see something different. By the morning I'll have a whole gallery up so you can share tonight's walk with me.
17.04.10 - White Riot  Wood Anemones in Skellingthorpe Old Wood. On a beautiful sunny day I had my first proper wildflower walk of the year. The wood anemones formed a beautiful white carpet in many places, but the bluebells are late this year.
