11-22-10  Look... I asked nicely for some privacy and you just couldn't resist peeking on me you pervert !!    I hope no one is offended by this interpretation of what the hawk is doing.  EDIT: To answer Donna L's question, the bird bath is 19" across and holds 2 gal of water.   No pp was done to enhance this gesture.  It's 100% what the Coopers Hawk gave me.
March 1, 2011 "The Rose" this is SOOC using my new Sigma 50-500 lens, hand held and natural light through a window. I ordered it a week ago and all buyers remorse was gone after the first few shots.  The roses were sent to our office manager by her husband yesterday on their 35th ann..

WOW...I was shocked at all the comments on my bug picture! They were some very strange and cool looking bugs..I had never seen any like that before. Thanks so much..you all are the best!    This lady bug was on a weed right next to the strange looking bugs..I will have to go back and check those weeds out again!
Dog-Tired....Exactly how I'm feeling this morning! Had a busy day yesterday and was out late...will catch up with everyone tonight!
November 4th, 2010 - Pretty in Pink  For IndigoDreams:  This is for your “post pink” challenge and I sincerely apologize that it is so late! I had good intentions to do this earlier but you know what they say about those! However, they also say “better late than never”, right? No excuses – this should have been posted on Tuesday.  While I have not personally met or lost someone who has had breast cancer, I certainly feel that it deserves as much time and energy as any other ailment – even one death is too many. I lost my mother to Huntington's Disease a year ago and I can understand how the drive to make other people understand and support a cause comes about (and how trying it can be) - I applaud you for your compassion and your energy.  On Display: The Copper Kettle (Laramie, Wyoming)
For all of you that are getting snow...hope this adds a little brightness to your day! Sure wish I could get some of that snow!!

2009  OK everyone - I "bit the bullet" and bought my first macro lens - it's a Nikon 105 VR.  This is my daily today and it was shot hand held of the Texas Prickly Pear blooms.  Many of my shots with the new lens today weren't great - I guess I was shaking.  I didn't particularly like the comp, but loved the colors.  Still learning this new lens.  Anyway, I'm loving the experience.  Thanks for all your comments.  Have a wonderful day tomorrow.     Best viewed in Xlarge or 2X    Linda
Lower Antelope Canyon is a slot canyon, located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona.  Some have asked if you can see the saturated colors with the naked eye. The answer is "no."   Photos taken in this canyon, which is 50 feet or more below the surface, need to be captured with the camera on a tripod, ISO 400 and higher, and the lens stopped down to achieve as great a depth of field as possible.  Also, due to no direct light, exposures may vary from a second to over a minute. I had no idea of the proper settings but listened to the pros shooting around me.  I also had no idea of the beautiful colors in the canyon until after each photo was taken.   Another tip - if you want to get out of there alive, please do not use your flash. I didn't and I survived.  Best results are achieved when the sun is high in the sky, and from late Spring to early Fall.  Someone wanted to know if using a flash would stir up bats or some other form of wildlife.  I'm sure it could.  I was cautioned not to use a flash because of the wrath that could potentially rain down on me from other photographers.  The saturated colors that you see in photos like mine are only achieved by using time exposures.  A flash will only wash out the colors.
August 20, 2010    What the heck kind of bug is this???    Whatever it is, it's truly ugly in X3, but I couldn't help snapping, then posting this photo.    Spotted this really ugly fellow on my husband's 1981 Ford truck's window wipers.  I have no idea what this guy is, but he is really, really ugly.  Let me know if you know what this guy's  name is.  Hope he gives you a laugh today.    Thanks to everyone for your comments!!!    Linda    PS - see the comments below:  Pulsman's friend thinks it's a Dance Fly (that's pretty cool, he does seem to be dancing - sort of), and Macropixels agrees with Pulsman that it is the fly family Empididae, a Empis Tesselata.  Cool to know.
October 17, 2009 - "Color In The Fog"    This was shot at the top of the Mammoth Hot Springs Terraces.  As we descended to the bottom of the terraces, the cold, foggy and damp morning  turned to heavy sleet.  I was left alone as most people left to escape the sleet that was coming down almost horizontally.  My levi's were soaked when I got down but I ended up getting many beautiful photos to choose from!    It will probably take me 4 or 5 posts to attempt to convey the scope and beauty of the Mammoth Hots Springs Area.    from    http://www.nps.gov/yell/naturescience/mamterr.htm	  Mammoth Terraces - At Mammoth Hot Springs, a rarer kind of spring is born when the hot water ascends through the ancient limestone deposits of the area instead of the silica-rich lava flows of the hot springs common elsewhere in the park. The results are strikingly different and unique. They invoke a landscape that resembles a cave turned inside out, with its delicate features exposed for all to see. The flowing waters spill across the surface to sculpt magnificent travertine limestone terraces. As one early visitor described them, "No human architect ever designed such intricate fountains as these. The water trickles over the edges from one to another, blending them together with the effect of a frozen waterfall."
Blueberries  Driving down the road, I thought this was a pretty January scene.  Oregon is well known for its berries.  The lines running away from us are blueberries, and the bushes to the right of the farmhouse are more blueberries. I think the bushes in front of the house are, too, but the color is slightly different. We'll have to drive by in the summer and see for sure.   Yummy ~Deb 1/25/2010
Black sail in the moonset :-) - Nov 30 2009  Well didn't want to turn to the archives again... couldn't shoot new pictures... so fabricated this. A fake moon, fake ocean, fake stars, fake shadow... oh yes, the sailboat is real, but darkened... the whole picture is not a masterpiece, but hey... don't blame me, blame photoshop... in my head it was perfect ;-)  For yesterdays picture... the real Azur is the one in the middle.
