I took this picture of a Magnolia bud from the tree in front of my house after the sun went down. I then adjusted the lighting and color to make the photo look more “low key.” I also used photoshop to remove the ant that was crawling up the largest petal.
I took this picture on Saturday of the Jackson County Court House located in Silva, NC. Each flag honors a specific veteran. Names of those being honored and how they served are listed at the site. Thank you!
Downtown Chicago taken from a river cruise. The Wrigley building is on the left. I like the cloud formations in the background.
I zoomed in on this Brown Pelican while visiting Tide Tables Restaurant and Marina for lunch yesterday.
Yesterday, my husband and I went to Tide Tables Restaurant and Marina for lunch in Cortez. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend it. I’ve only been there twice and both times had the Grouper sandwich. I do think their Grouper sandwich is the best I have ever had which echoes many other reviews. We figured it would be pretty busy and it was, the last time we went, we shared a table with strangers and this time around, we sat at the bar. I decided to step away from all the action and take some pictures of the beautiful scenery and birds that were all around the marina. This shot is one of my favorites from the afternoon.
I photographed this Red-bellied Woodpecker last Saturday on my weekend walk through Country Club East. While it is easy to spot woodpeckers due to the noise they make pecking away (and in this case, a bright red head), I find woodpeckers difficult to photograph, they move often and quickly!
I took this picture of the pond located at the end of my street this morning. I have a direct view of the golf course from my driveway. My favorite time to visit the pond to try to capture pictures of birds and critters is first thing in the morning before all the golfers arrive.
