All my life, I have always enjoyed taking pictures. Around 2008 is when I became more serious about it. I have found that through photography I notice things more such as the details of a flower, a little insect or the beautiful markings on what might be considered a “plain” bird.
Here is a macro of a flower where you can see the bits of pollen and dirt as well as the shades of yellow and green.
This little bug is a soldier beetle – kinda cute I think.
This is a common grackle. These birds can empty a feeder in no time but if the sun hits their feathers just right, you can see beautiful rainbow colors and their eyes are a pretty golden color.
I don’t rise as early most days as I have in the past. I’m sure this is due to working much less and having the liberty to stay up later at night. On a recent mid-morning walk, we had the opportunity to see this cormorant with a couple of turtles. They seemed to be enjoying the warm sun.
Cee provided a picture this week in which we had several topics to choose from. I decided to go with birds because we are seeing a lot of activity now and we just had some baby woodpeckers show up recently. Here’s one of the parents and a baby.
