Flowers, critters and ‘shrooms!
My favorite place to sit.
Just hanging out.
Got the bee’s hiney. LOL!
Another shot of the Bumble I chased all over the yard.
Happy ‘shrooms on the hill.
Flowers for everyone!
That is one happy grasshopper.
I see you!
A cheery Rose of Sharon bush bloom.
Isolated pair of Black-Eyed Susans just hanging out.
This was a BIG, happy Hibiscus.
I followed that Bumblebee all over the place. It was hopping from Liriope to Liriope. I finally caught it in flight. You can just see its wings.
I wander all over my neighborhood snapping pictures with my Samsung stupidphone. The Bumble and the Liriope are in my yard.
The Sturgeon is a big, prehistoric fish that is rather common to the Great Lakes. Native American fishing tribes, like the Algonquin, are credited with naming August’s full moon. It is also known as a Red Moon due to August heat and hazy days, giving the moon a red tint.
Green Corn Moon
100% full illumination occurred at 07:56am EDT.
Howl for me…
We have several neighborhood cats. Some are really, really nice and just want to be petted. Others…well, let’s just say I have a healthy respect for them. ~Victoria
Not a care in the world, this one.
“I’m watching you…”
Sweet, sweet baby, missing a foot.
“How dare you pet that other kitty!”
And, my Oliver. He watches the world happen through the windows.
I snapped these yesterday evening. I was stunned at how clear and brilliant this rainbow was. The companion rainbow above is harder to see.
It is a shame that my cell phone cannot truly capture what I see. The beauty is breathtaking.
It’s summertime and we’re getting the hot weather storms in the afternoons. I heard the thunder as the system rolled in and the sunlight dimmed. I didn’t really think much about it. I just happened to step outside to our recyclables bin and…wow. I ran back inside and grabbed my phone. I wandered up and down the street trying to get good shots.
Damn power lines. *sigh*
They have a “national day” for nearly everything. Some of them are very tongue-in-cheek, if not down-right ridiculous. Did you know there is a Ding-a-Ling Day? Yeah. I didn’t either. Apparently, it’s for dialing up friends, not pointing out stupid people. Who knew.
I wander around and take pictures of everything. I see so much I want to capture. My Samsung stupidphone gets a lot of use. I would really like to get a genuine camera but, I can’t decide what to get and cost is an issue. Expensive cameras don’t have payment plans like, say, a stupidphone.
So, anyway, enjoy National Camera Day…or, what is left of it. Take pix of your family. Take pix of your friends. Take pix of nature. Take pix of critters. Let your imagination wander. There is always something in a photograph that surprises.
Cheers and enjoy!
