A bird shot! - Nov 24 2010  I must admit... I'm jealous... when I see all those great bird shots on the dailies. Last saturday in the woods I was also on the lookout for birds. I had just taken a few shots of a fungus species when I got a glimpse of these two here. Immediately I hit the deck... yes, it was wet and dirty... but I was determent to get my bird shot! I crawled slowly towards them making good use of the terrain to stay out of sight. The wind was coming towards me... good, they wouldn't smell me. Darn, suddenly a shallow puddle was blocking my way... should I give up... no way, not this time! I grab my camera between my teeth (for once it payed of to have a big mouth) and in commando style I crossed the muddy puddle. Finally there was just one dig tree between us... the were still there... so into each other that I stayed unnoticed. I took a deep breath... and rolled like Rambo from behind the tree shooting away at maximum speed. GOTCHA!!! In my enthusiasm I couldn't stop shooting... until I realized that they still weren't moving... when I looked up from the camera it became clear why... statues don't move, don't they!   Have a nice 'dry' day!

May 25, 2011-Happy Pancho came running to greet me. He was out running on the path and I was trying to find some dragonflies. I can hear Pancho whining before I actually see him. Once he starts coming towards you: hold on to your camera and anything else you have on you. His owner told me he really isn't a people person? Really?? I get swamped with kisses and serenaded until I give him my undivided attention. I love this teddy bear. Thank you so much for all the comments on my photo yesterday, I still don't have a clue what it's called. I like starfish as a reference.  (Day 145:365 @sharkbayte)
It's my birthday today! And for my day I would like to be home in NB and having Shediac lobster!! Thus the two posts on the same day but both have pink in them!!     Happy Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oct.21/12  OK birthday hint . I;m already my new age for 35 minutes and the best thing about the number is it gets me discounts.
11-7-10  End of a tough day.  Had to pull this out of the old archive in remembrance of spring. This fledgling was worn out, and patiently waiting for the next tidbit from it's parents. It's amazing how trusting they are at this age. I was approx 6 yds away and it would open it's eye every now and then to make sure I had not moved any closer. I felt sorry for the little guy because it had been struggling all afternoon trying to get to this top branch, vantage point. Love those little nails.  EDIT: The little miracles we all tend to rush by without noticing. Feed them this winter, that is when they need the most help regardless of hassle and bad weather.. The slow realization that they are all gone will be way too late. They are so very fragile and are at our, and our pets thoughtless mercy.
The Gathering - Nov 2 2010  This one is for Indigodreams... My friends the Ladybugs held a meeting for Breast Cancer Awareness. It was a bit cold outsides so they had to keep each other warm.  The last few days two walls of our house (east- and south side) are populated with many many Ladybugs... so I gently picked some of them off the wall and placed them on a soft tissue. They really seemed to enjoy the softness and the warmth of the morning sun because they were in no hurry to leave.  PS Not one Ladybug got hurt in the process ;-)
On the grounds of the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs; best viewed in the larger sizes.  We took my sister and her hubby out here, so I was able to capture a few shots.  Thanks so much for your warm response to my most recent hummingbird shot!  Really made my day!  Hope you are having a good week!

Finally there was just one dig tree between us... the were still there... so into each other that I stayed unnoticed. I took a deep breath... and rolled like Rambo from behind the tree shooting away at maximum speed. GOTCHA!!! In my enthusiasm I couldn't stop shooting... until I realized that they still weren't moving... when I looked up from the camera it became clear why... statues don't move, don't they!

Have a nice 'dry' day!
