This mute swan spent time on home improvement while I watched it.  This consisted of reaching out with its elongated neck, picking up pieces of reeds and other muck at the base of the nest, and depositing them at the top.  Look closely and you'll see swan's down, which I assume the swans pluck from their own feathers and use to line their nests.  I don't believe the eggs are due to hatch for several weeks yet.

050211  Tree in Shohola Falls    Long week last week with the shutter failing on my Nikon D50 and computer problems at work. Took a drive to Delaware Water Gap over the weekend to get away. Trying to adjust to my D60 but I liked my older camera.
Dance on the beach.  Our small island "Fanoe" is a National park.  To celebrate this, 30 or more young people, all in white, arranged a happening on the beach. Now it is pronounced to be a World Heritage due to its unique nature. We are 3200 inhabitants and are all proud of this nomination.  Kresten Refslund

Nick and Deanna's patio. (7-21-08)  This in a friend's back yard. They have quite the yard with all kinds of plants, and decorations, and even a little pond with koi. While I don't think I would want all of the upkeep, it is pretty cool.
Prost!  Thu. March 26, 2009 (Day 345)    Went out for dinner at Rudi Lechner tonight.   Started with Spaten, then sausages & cabbage rolls...  Brought home some Apple Struddle...   I just ate it with vanilla ice cream.  YUM!    I just wished that I slide the beer glass a bit to the right; to get the best composition.
Hey all!  I didn't have much time to comment - nor take photos today.  It just seems like life sometimes gets in the way of our fun times more often than we'd like.  This is another shot of the prickly pear blooms in the back yard with my new macro lens.  Thanks to evryone for your comments and encouragement on my photos.    Hope you enjoy this shot - I personally love their flowers, buds and stalks and their beauiful colors.       Headed to 3 car shows on Saturday & Sunday - so look for more car photos in the coming days!.    Smug Muggers Rock!!    Linda Good (lgood @ smugmug)  personal email Noelxgood@sbcglobal.net    Thanks for all you kind comments on my dailies.    Have a fabulous evening.

11/23/10 - Tree in the Fog  I have been watching and studying this tree for a couple of years now.  Whenever there is fog, it seems to stand out from the backdrop...a solitary, lonely figure.  I finally made up  my mind yesterday to figure out where to park the car to get out to take a picture...not a small feat.  I do try to stay safe, but this location is more precarious than some.  Most days I am joyful as I spend time with the kids.  My life is full of laughter and color; it's vibrant and full of life like many of my pictures.  But some days at least deep inside it is like this too.  I guess a bit of that side is slipping through today.  I stopped to think about my mother for a few minutes when I took this.  She was involved in a horrible traffic accident with a tractor trailer on a foggy morning in November just before Thanksgiving in 1985.  For me, the fog will always be more than just the fog.  Back to bright and cheery tomorrow I promise...  Thanks for your comments on Johnny and the Jon boat.  It was as serene out there as you thought.  Little wind, warm sun on our skin, very few boats out on the lake...a calming hour without the chaos of life.  HAGD, Maryann

3rd year Pic 174 - Mar 03 2011 awaiting...  Mahabaleshwar Market  This is old lady was asking for alms at the weekly market.     Her belly looks big because poor women tend to keep their precious belongings or day's earnings in a small pouch tied to the waist and then covered by the saree.

Cotton-grass grows in wetlands. They are app. 30 cm (1 ft) high, so I got wet elbows and stomach to catch them at this angle
