Macro Monday

All 3 of these taken in my yard earlier in August

Didn't see the fly om this black-eyed susan until I put it on the computer!

Macro photography is a favorite of mine!

We have a hummingbird feeder outside our kitchen window that has a lot of activity on a sunny day.

Once it stopped rainy this afternoon one bird showed up & has been around for awhile.

Just sitting on the shepherds hook & flying to the feeder every so often.

Not the clearest photos ( taken through the kitchen window)

I took quite a few pictures to get these with the red throat showing

I love having a zoom lens!

Monochrome Monday--Ooops!

I changed the setting on my camera to take B & W photos & forgot to change it back!

So, I took a bunch of photos in that mode!

I uploaded them & saw my mistake, but I like them this way!

From the Garden

 These are the 2 varieties of cherry tomatoes that I am growng in my garden--Matt's Wild Cherry and Sungold
Getting lots of chumps of them--so easy to just pop them in my mouth right after I pick them!  Yum!

Friends & Bison

For about a week I had been chatting with my friend, Carol about her coming over to see the bison--she is a painter and wants to take some photos & then create paintings.  So I arranged with my neighbor Theresa to take us on the farm to see them.

Theresa & Carol walking down to the field where the mommas & new babies are.

One of the mommas & babies--there are at least 10 babies so far

And I couldn't pass up a photo of the Highland Cattle--the 2 females are expecting, too!

Go Fly a Kite!

Spent a fun Sunday afternoon on Isla with Gaby, Marilyn and Miguel ( Gaby's boyfriend)  he's very inventive.  he decided to make a kite--using a teeshirt fot the body and the tail of the kite.

Marilyn & Gaby on Playa Norte

Miguel with the kite


Tough to find the space to fly a kite on the crowded beach on a Sunday afternoon--but they did!



Now it's stuck in a palm tree!

Relaxing on the beach --- a fun afternoon!
