Monday’s Treasures

I had my camera with me all day today, (like any day)

and I found quite a few things to photograph.

With the price of gas being so high, I don’t make

as many special trips to takes pics like I used to.

So, needless to say, a trip to run errands usually  takes

longer than normal because I end up stopping along the

way to photograph something that catches my eye.

I also spend much more time prowling the woods

around our house, looking for photo ops.

Here’s a few “treasures” from my day.

A field of dandelions.

An abundance of trilliums.  This picture doesn’t even do them justice.

There is a huge area that is as thick as this.  I just couldn’t get a

good shot to capture all of it.

Blue Cohosh blossoms

Ground Ivy  a.k.a. Creeping Charlie

Maidenhair Ferns

A Starflower

Yellow Violet

Jack in the Pulpit

Family Time

This nest of robins is hanging on the back of my brother-in-laws

garage.   Mama robin is sitting on 4 babies and she didn’t seem to

mind me being this close.  I was using a 200mm zoom lens, so I

was about 8 or 9 feet away.  Daddy robin was much more skittish

with us around and he wouldn’t come into the nest when I was this

close, so we had to stand back a bit when he wanted to come in

and feed the babies.  The 2 babies in the nest behind our garage

have flown away today.
