2014 Photo Journal - Day 210 - "Light"

Sitting on my bench in the garden playing with the camera. Is this shot considered "backlight"? Whatever, I love how the light shines through the petals and leaves!

2014 Photo Journal - Day 208 - Whit our new pup. We're not sure if he is purebred Border Collie as some friends found him and then we decided to take him and give him a try. He is about 4 months old, and as you can see, he is getting his first long line lesson while Mike is riding horseback. Whit did very well! He is showing good promise as a working dog, so we're excited to see how he matures.

2014 Photo Journal - Day 207 - Bee Brush...

...with a bee to boot!

I was riding horseback checking the fence for goats and snapping shots as I rode along. These blooms smell so sweet and it is unusual to have them in July, but with the recent rains, the brush bloomed again. I was surprised when I uploaded the photo and saw that I captured a bee in the photo!

2014 Photo Journal - Day 190 - Bracted Dayflower

One of my favorite wild flowers - though this one is growing in a flower bed in my garden - it is also encroaching upon the green beans. But as you can see, it is much too pretty to pull!!
The bloom is about the size of your thumbnail - aren't they so delicate and lovely?

2014 Photo Journal - Day 188 - Look Who I Got to Hold!!

It's a little fuzzy - but right after I snapped this one, he started wiggling - so no more sleeping snapshots.
We got to see them for a couple of hours to day! Can't believe he is 6 weeks old!!

This time a Swallowtail!

I really had taken my camera to the garden for a photo shoot of a small quilt that I finished - but alas, the butterfly photo wins!! They just make me smile!

2014 Photo Journal - Day 183 - Ring Neck Dove

I posted here a photo of a ring neck dove. I commented that it was very difficult to get close enough for my camera to take a very good shot. But look at this one - same camera - it flew right over my head and landed on the fence near where I was sitting on the ground. I was so excited that I nearly didn't get a photo!
