It's beginning to look a lot like...

I was in a festive mood today, so I decided to play with Christmas stuff. 
I love these Hershey's Cherry Cordial Candy Kisses.  I ate way too many today.

Light Writing

Brit and I tried our hand at light writing a few weeks ago.  We used small flashlights and it was so much fun!

I don't know why, but these bugs fascinate me.

I'm Hiding

This guy was trying to hide from me.  I guess he's camera shy.

A mini Lake Michigan trip

A mini vacation was taken this week.  And I've decided that I love the water more than the average person.

We had so much fun taking in the beauty and capturing some of it with our Nikons.
The next day, we found this extra large boat heading out to the lake.
And we even found a few butterflies!

Blue Damselfly

My sister is very good at capturing dragonflies out in Arizona and I've always wanted to get a shot of one.  Well, I finally found one in my yard today and was very excited that she sat there long enough for me to get her portrait.

Last week Brit and I ran into town.  Sitting at a stoplight, Brit noticed the beautiful color the sun was casting on the Brooklyn water tower.  I jumped out of the car and snapped a few shots.

Mister Turtle

This morning, I found a very large turtle in my driveway.  My husband quickly took him down to the water before I had a chance to photograph him.  Later, I went out in my kayak to grab a picture of a flower I had seen earlier, but came across this guy instead.  He looks better here than in my driveway.

You Light up my Life

I always find it amazing when I catch two bugs in the act.  But finding two lightening bugs going to town was a first.  I believe she is registered at "Bugs R Us".

Snack Time

A time to eat..

And a time to rest.

Rather than having fruit on my cereal, I decided to have cereal on my fruit.  And yogurt. 


I didn't have the new food in the feeder 5 minutes and this guy stopped by for a drink.

home sweet home

Someone is building a nest.

Big Blue Bird

No matter what I'm doing....  Even if I'm on long distance with my sister... When I see this Blue Heron arrive at the shore, I drop everything and grab my camera.  I just love these birds.

Another Beautiful Sky

This time of year I can get a great view of the Sunset from my dock.  There have been some nice ones this week.  Also, I hung my hummingbird feeder today.  Maybe they will find it tomorrow.  I hope.

Sunset 5-27-10

This is the time of year that the greatest sunsets can be seen from the end of my dock.  Tonights was probably the best I've ever seen.

A walk in the park

Going to the park is always fun.  But what's extra fun is when you can see beautiful creatures like these.
And this little guy was hiding, but we saw him!

Little butterfly

This guy was hanging around my yard this afternoon.  I have no idea what kind of butterfly it is.  I bet my sister would know.  She knows everything about butterflies.

Dandy Lions

Dandelions can be so pretty.  Why does everyone want them dead?

A "Great Blue" treat

As I looked up from weeding my garden, I saw this beauty at the end of the dock looking for an afternoon snack.

Spring Color

The Fiddle heads are a sure sign of spring. 
And Oh my Bleeding Heart!

I'm not sure if this is a real lady bug or not.  But she was visiting my porch today so I took her portrait.

Quote the Raven....

This large.... VERY large bird visited my yard today and brought along several friends.  What is it?

Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree

I found this little seedling today and figure that by December, Charlie Brown will love to decorate it with lights.

Signs of Spring

I have an indoor plant that knows when it's Spring because it blooms without fail.  And it's such a pretty color of pink.

And outside in the yard, there are dozens of these little yellow flowers that are the first to bloom in March.  Spring makes me happy.
