08/23/11 - Flutterby  On the way in from picking up the kids at school yesterday, I swung into the local produce stand, Porters, to pick up some onions and fresh yellow squash. I love having veggies so easily accessible. I also love having such great photo ops there too. There are 6 or more of these huge light orange/yellow butterfly bushes, and they are always covered in some kind of butterfly. Today, this bush had 3 swallowtails zooming all over it, and I spent several minutes snapping away. This is my favorite of the bunch although there were a few close seconds.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/August-2011/18330920_7pCmrW#1443260783_ZzC2dDs http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/August-2011/18330920_7pCmrW#1443256037_FDRBBH8 http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/August-2011/18330920_7pCmrW#1443261106_kcxFVnK  The boys were pretty content...fresh lemonade with maraschino cherries and a slice of orange:-)   Thanks for all your comments on my car show pics...

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"

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.
05/10/11 - Nimue the Barred Owl  Another rescue bird from the Wildlife Rescue Center in Sanford that we saw at Noah's Landing  in Coats, NC on Sunday.  Last year I took pictures of Ophelia the Barred Owl, but this year Nimue was onsite instead.  LOVE those eyes!    Link to the Noah's Landing gallery:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Noahs-Landing/Noahs-Landing-050811/16970760_jTvbsT#1283151623_d2tLKHr  Thank you so much for your reception to the red-tailed hawk shot from yesterday.  It's such a privilege to get to see and take pics of the rescue birds.
