July 13, 2011-These are two of the kittens from a few days ago. Their mother moved all of them to the neighbor's house. Well that night we had a lot of rain, the next morning I found all four of the kittens back in my yard, inside a huge planter that was on it's side and off the ground, they are protected from the rain and the sun. The mother cat just amazes me.  Jasper my pup is not happy with the situation. (194:365)  Thank you all so much for all the wonderful comments and response to my picture yesterday, it was overwhelming!
June 22, 2011-This is a Paper Wasp, Polistes fuscatus (Fabricius, 1793). I believe I have the correct species as there are many color variations. Found him sitting on the fence post as I was checking the garden out. First time I had one sit long enough for me to take it's picture and without me getting chased off. (What that translates to is: I had the chair in reverse and took off like a scaredy-cat) (Day 173:365 @sharkbayte)  thank you for all the wonderful comments on my Flesh Fly shot yesterday, I truly appreciate it. For those that asked the lens I used yesterday as well as today is my favorite, it hardly leaves my camera it's the canon "EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM MACRO"

1/1/13 - Sunset in Arches National Park, Utah; best viewed in the larger sizes.  I thought this might be a nice way to start off the New Year.  Happy 2013, everyone!  Thanks for your comments on the face painting pic.  Much appreciated!
Tuesday, July 17, 2012     "AFFECTION"  "Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people."  ~ W.C. Fields  Update: After reading Wilma's comment, I changed the caption from "Bonding" to "Affection." Thanks for the inspiration, Wilma!  I am told that horses are extrememly affectionate and that when a horse gently brings its head even slightly in your direction, it is a sign of affection and acknowledgement.........such was the case here. You all know that I rarerly post "people shots," but I was walking by and spotted this scene and thought, "photo opp and future daily post." I was hoping she wouldn't leave before I was able to get my camera out of its bag and capture the moment.   Thanks for your comments and have a terrific Tuesday.

Thursday, July 12, 2012  "CARNIVAL BOAT" with REEDS, MARLINS, and NIIJIMA FLOATS by Dale Chihuly  "The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most." ~ John Ruskin  Color my world - the sheer exuberance of a boat full of party balloons!! Here's a closeup of the boat that was in yesterday's photo. I like fab, but not drab. I LOVE color, and apparently, so does Dale Chihuly. If art is the expression of imagination, then Dale and I both dream in very vivid colors. An encounter with Dale Chihuly's works is always a spectacular reminder that glass is not just something to see through or drink out of.   "Chihuly first filled boats wit his glass elements in Nuutajarvi, Finland during the Chihuly Over Venice project in June 1995. After several days of glassblowing in the hotshop, the team made temporary installations along the Nuutajoki, the river nearby. Chihuly then filled it with Chandelier parts and other glass forms that were blown during the Finland trip." ~ Reprinted text from DA&BG's brochure  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Hang in there; tomorrow is Friday!  "GARDENS OF GLASS: DALE CHIHULY" 2012  @ A Woman's Garden Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens  Dallas, TX  http://www.dallasarboretum.org/   ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken June 29, 2012)
Step by step tutorial on eating an apple

Clown   Thanks for your comments on my rodeo steer wrangling shot.  Hope everyone is hanging in there with all the bitter winter weather and storms.  It was cold even in the house today; the heat has trouble keeping up when the temps are so frigid.
Monkey with baby (Pic 187 2nd year)  D300 17-55 2.8 at ISO400 f9 1/100    There were quite a few monkeys at Dambulla (Sri Lanka) rock temple. This mother was eating from a mango peel. In between she would feed the baby too. It's always a risk to go close to any animal who has a younger one nearby so I had to keep a bit of a distance and grab a few shots in a rush.     www.javeri.net

Sep.18,2006  An apple a day..  Getting closer to what I want. Thus far I thought the apple being soft was due to water distortion and I kept increasing the f-stops to get it all in focus. Turns out it's plain old motion blur. The moment I upped the shutter speed to 1/1250s it came nicely into focus.
Sunday, June 17, 2012  "NECKTIES"  "Neckties satisfy modern man's desire to dress in art." ~ Harry Anderson  "Fathers are the biggest source of strength for a child. The innocent eyes of a child perceive father as the all-powerful, most knowledge, truly affectionate and the most important person in the family. For daughters, fathers are the first men they adore and fall in love with. While for sons, their fathers are the strongest person they know and someone they aspire to emulate. Even for the grownups, fathers are someone whom they look up to for the most experienced and honest advice that is always in the best of our interest. For this great figure in our life that we know as father - it becomes our utmost duty to pay our humblest tribute on the occasion of Father's Day." ~ Reprinted text from here: http://www.fathersdaycelebration.com/tribute-to-father.html  Happy Father's Day to biological and surrogate (one who takes the place of another) fathers, father-figures, Godfathers, and mentors - both natural and spiritual.  SPEAKING OF SPORTS: Miami Heat will host Oklahoma City Thunder in game 3 of the NBA Finals tonight. The series is now 1 - 1. Go "young guns" of OKC!  I'm appreciative of your comments on yesterday's "Cherry Blossoms" (remix) photo.   Be blessed and share the rest!  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  (photo taken 4/4/2012)
