More this and that August Photos!
A pond of water lily pads:
A turtle caught on lens...they spook very easily, so I was glad to capture the shot!:
Waves and water lilies on a windy day:
White Musk Mallows:
Corn stalks with the promise of
melting butter on lucious cobs:
Driving through the woods, we spied a young doe peeking at us behind the trees.
We stopped the car
and she appeared even more curious.
After catching her on camera, she still watched us,
so we slowly pulled away.
I hope she becomes more afraid of humans as she ages, for her safety:
An immature sunflower pod:
While going for a walk the other day, we spied a Monarch flitting amongst the neighbor's flowers.
I must have stalked him for about 10 minutes to finally be able to catch a still photo of him.
But it was worth it!:
my next post will have more shots
I couldn't take my finger off the camera, he was SO breathtakingly beautiful!
- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
