3/52 Birds, birds, birds....

Lots of pretty and unusual (to me) birds in my yards these days.
Thanks to my friend Frank for identifying this Pine Grosbeak for me. From the link he provided I discovered another site which lead to the identification of several other birds I've recently seen in my yards.
Another great wildlife site is Doug Gardener's site at
You can catch Doug on Wild Life Photo Adventures on PBS, Sunday Evenings at 7:30 EST.


Northern Cardinal
 At the Fountain
 These shots of the Cardinal and the Robin at the Fountain were shot through double paned glass.

Homemade Coconut Macaroons


These tree trunks really are this white, with a slight blue tinge.
I had to over expose the shot to bring them out.
 I added a light vignette to add some depth to the white sky.

Here they are slightly darkened.


Any id on this tree? The leaves, trunk and shape mimics a crepe myrtle,
but these berries are not crepe myrtle.

2/52 ♥ Florida, USA

I took a quick trip with two of my sisters to Florida, to visit our Uncle.
It was beautiful there, and the weather was sublime.
 Balmy  and 73ยบ.
It reminded me a lot of California... Though in the Summer; it's NOTHING like California.
The Florida humidity in the Summer is excruciatingly brutal.

Too bad we came home to more snow and ice...

White Ibis


This lake outing was the only chance I got to shoot pictures.

These Swans are Magnificent...
...this one was doing about 5 mph across the lake. Check out that wake...
 Glorious Beauty and Power

Florida Bluebill


Can You Believe that Hairdo?


White Ibis

Showing Off..
 We had intended to go out shooting again the next day, but decided to leave a day early to try and get home before the Monday morning snowfall turned to dangerous ice on the roads.
There were white Pelicans on the other side of the lake, that I didn't get to shoot. That made me very sad :(

This is my Uncle Alar, Mama's only surviving brother.

Twenty Eleven...

Wow..another year has come and gone. Where on Earth, did it go?
The 21st Century is speeding along. Hopefully with no speeding tickets ;)
..........................................................................................
No 365 Project for me this year.
The posting is, for me, too constrictive,
and is my least favorite aspect of journaling with my photographs.
I am however, trying a 52 weeks project.
It probably won't be a traditional 'one picture a week' project,
rather as few as one, or as many as four or five or more, per week.

My year started out kind of slow, with snow and ice and a few birds...and a quick trip to Florida,
that didn't yeild anywhere near as many pictures as I'd hoped for.
It was a super QUICK trip.

The days are getting longer and longer,
 I'm excited to see what Amazing Thing(s) God will do in this year,
Twenty Eleven.

The End of the 365...

Well, It's cold in January... and I'm rockin into a 52 weeks project...
However, before I can start that, I still have several more leftovers from the 2010 ...365. Plus one extra.. because of a miscalculation waaaay back in the beginning.
So here are the last vestiges of my ThreeSixtyFive for Oh Ten.
