Grounded  Apr 22 Since the birdfeeder is occupied by a squirrel, a cardinal resorts to picking up seeds off the ground.
04/22/14 - What a Catch! My Blog  Track out for the kids is winding down.  They go back to school tomorrow.  On the one hand, I could use a break, but on the other hand I am already missing these fun times.  I'm a little weepy since our beloved Blaze passed last week, and seeing the kids growing up so quick isn't helping.  Thankfully, as some of the activities that we used to do fade away new ones engage us.   Yesterday the kids and I went to Pullen Park where we rode the carousel and train and played on the playground.  We intended to get on the pedal boats there, but they weren't open.  We headed over to Lake Johnson and went on the pedal boats there...for an hour.  Let me tell you, that is a lot of pedaling.  The kids took turns, but I stayed in my spot the entire time.  Fortunately, my leg muscles don't seem any worse for wear today.  We were treated to some interesting wildlife while we were out on the water.  We watched a great blue heron fly past us gliding over the water.  We saw several cormorants gathering on a log in shallow water.  We saw barn swallows and their nests under the road bridge.  We even saw two Canada Goose nests and had a goose follow us and beg us for food.  Near the end, I took my daily shot.  One of the cormoants was wrestling a huge fish.  I couldn't tell what he had as I took the shot just tried to focus as best as I could as the boat swayed on the water and the kids had a water fight.  Ah the things a photographer has to work through:-)  It is extremely cropped, but I thought it was the most interesting shot that I took yesterday.  Here are our best pics from Pullen Park.  If you look closely, you'll see that I took another shot of the kids on the big M at the playground.

April 18, 2014  I can't imagine why anyone would want to shoot an elephant.  But some do.  This is a taxidermy display at the SCI show.  The elephant was huge.  It made me sad, but I thought it worthy of showing you.  As I mentioned several years ago.........I don't post photos from SCI to offend you, but it's a reality for many people, so I show you the results and my experiences.  Neither Bill nor I shoot animals, we only shoot clay pigeons, but this is part of his world, and you'd be amazed at the 10's of thousands of people who attend this show and pay big bucks to get admission tickets.  Thank your for your comments on my "Big Cat" photo from yesterday.  "Women are like elephants. I like to look at 'em, but I wouldn't want to own one."  ~ W.C. Fields  I hope you have a big & successful day today my friends.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

Happy Easter!  The Resurrection  But very early on Sunday morning[a] the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance.  So they went in, but they didn’t find the body of the Lord Jesus. As they stood there puzzled, two men suddenly appeared to them, clothed in dazzling robes. The women were terrified and bowed with their faces to the ground. Then the men asked, “Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn't here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day." Luke 24:1-7 NLT www.biblegateway.com  Easter 20 April 2014  Note: I'll post my letter shape challenge tomorrow : )
April 22, 2014  The Samara of the Japanese Maple tree.   A samara is a winged achene, a type of fruit in which a flattened wing of fibrous, papery tissue develops from the ovary wall. A samara is a simple dry fruit and indehiscent (not opening along a seam). The shape of a samara enables the wind to carry the seed farther away than regular seeds from the parent tree: (Wikipedia) When we were children we called these whirlygigs.  They provided hours of fun in the fall when they were dry.    Happy  Earth Day! Jeanne
April 22, 2014 post  and we went to Hutch's on the beach today. It was chilly but lots of people out. Some were fishing , roller blading, children playing ,long lines for  fish and chips and ice cream, teens on skateboards, and there was a gaiety about the sunshine and warmth. I got lots of shots that I like so I'm going to flood SM with a few more ! YAY Summer is coming!
