Bird Weekly – Birds in B/W or Sepia

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus with posting. We just received a contract on our house so we’ve been preoccupied with all that goes with those activities. I’m sure I’ll have some additional times where I am in and out. Anyway, for this week’s challenge I decided to post this photo of a mockingbird. They are not very colorful so I think the b/w lends itself nicely to these birds.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Sense of Seeing

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.

Lens-Artists #91 – Simplicity

This week we are looking at simplicity through our photos. Here are a few that I feel represent this weeks topic.

Simple pleasures (and not terribly high in calories)

A walk on the beach which I could do everyday if I lived closer to one

Watching the birds in our yard. We are soooo excited because this year we finally have bluebirds in one of our bird houses

Spring blossoms always bring a smile
