More this and that August Photos!

A pond of water lily pads:

Wild roses:

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!:

Stay tuned,
my next post will have more shots
of him....
I couldn't take my finger off the camera, he was SO breathtakingly beautiful!

You fill the frame so well with these shots. Class images.

You always amaze me with nature shots and now I want the wild rose as my screen saver.
That deer sure it cute.

Love the lily pads in the first photo. Great shots once again!

Wow! Those mallows on a black background are awesome, as is the turtle and monarch. Can't wait to see more.

Great picture of the monarch. I look forward to more pictures of him.

I just popped in from my sister Cher's site. Your photography is AWESOME!!! I enjoyed my visit.

Linda Reeder said...

More amazing photos! I have stalked the illusive butterfly before, and yes, when you get one lanned, it's click, click, click.

Sharon Wagner said...

Spectacular photos. I took some photos of migrating monarchs grouped in a tree last weekend. Perfect for a future post.

Mellodee said...

Outstanding shots! Is it my imagination or did you also catch another turtle in that first picture? The bump sticking out of the water on the lower right sure looks like it could be one.

My favorites were the Wild Roses, the White Musk Mallows and the Deer. The young fawns here act like playful pups, almost like they want contact, but with age they become more and more cautious.

Jeanette said...

Your pictures are always so beatuiful! I love the turtle and the doe! And yes, she needs to be a little more scared of people by November!

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Hi Joan, Gorgeous as usual... The Monarch is awesome... But--I like them all.. Great picture of the Musk Mallows....

Hope you have had a great day.

Loree said...

You ar right - that monarch is just stunning.

Diane AZ said...

The butterfly is gorgeous and I love the turtle and the water lilies, but all the images are wonderful!

J.J. in L.A. said...

Gorgeous pics, as always! But that butterfly! WOW!

magical photos! I like animals caught on the instant, this is exeptional! The flowers are beautiful too, the turtle seems lost on his island! And the butterfly is really impressing meadows! Bye !! :)

SquirrelQueen said...

You got some great captures of the critters Joan, the monarch is beautiful. And a shy deer and jumpy turtle, well done. I'm with you in hoping the doe will develop a healthy fear of humans.
