Strike A Pose

The squirrels are becoming some of my favorite models. I love their cute poses and silly facial expressions.

Another One Of Nature’s Gifts

20130918-170238.jpg

With all of the shots of nature that I take you would think that I live out in the country on a farm with woods surrounding me, not even close. I am very blessed that my parents have always been Mr. and Mrs. DoLittle. Nature, except snakes, have always been welcomed and found safe a safe haven in our yard.

Thinking of Daddy’s Dr. DoLittle qualities, when we were young, my Daddy taught one of our dogs to play baseball. He watches Westerns with his Chihuahua Heidi now, and he will pretend shoot her with his finger “POW” and she will dramatically roll over and play dead.

They both taught me to love and respect Heavenly Father’s treaures.

If I Am Really Still

I walked over where we put Tender’s corn on Saturday, and when I looked up I saw this cute guy enjoying a kernel on the pecan tree. His coat made him almost camouflaged. Quite a stealthy little guy.

Shrimp Anyone?

We Call Her Tender, As In Tender Mercy

Tender mercies come in all shapes and sizes. Several months ago my Mother was going through a particularly difficult time and while she was in her yard as therapy Heavenly Father sent the sweetest tender mercy to her. They are now dear friends, no pun intended.

She follows Mother along the chain link fence, comes to Mother’s voice and her name, “Tender” or “Baby”. She will stand and watch you as you watch her. She has a gentle wisdom in her eyes. She is so beautiful. My camera battery went dead so I did not get too many good shots, but there are a couple. I hope to get more soon.

I mentioned to Mother, “Tender is ruining my love of deer sausage and deer meat.”

Just look at her. (I am shooting through the fence, so that’s the blur. The last, I thought was just a neat picture.)

Sometimes You Feel Like A Nut

Working with telephoto today. It was the only way I could get the squirrels at play and eating.

I Call It Spike

I should probably learn the name of things. Please if you ever see a flower, insect, mushroom, or anything I post and know the real name share it. 🙂

Bringing Home A Baby Bumble Bee

I am having a ball with the Macro lens.  WOW!  Just WOW!  I cannot wait to try out the telephoto, too.

The next was a pretty large bumble bee.  I didn’t realize bees were so fast or so hairy.

Bumble Bee on Petunia  Clear 6-27This is the stuff my nightmares are made of.  I tell you what.  I do not know why I sneeze like crazy when I get in from taking pictures.

I found Smurf Village.  Couldn’t find the little blue guys though. They must have been somewhere else.

This is what Bec’s nightmares are made of.  No Bec,  I did not kill it.  It hopped flower to flower.

The Frog and the Dragon Fly

I was excited to capture these two shots.  It is like they knew I was having a rotten day yesterday and so they posed for me.  Thanks little creatures, you make my day.

I went to natures inch worm curvy body and the beautiful curves of the magnolia pedals. I also borrowed a beautiful curves my husband took of copper wire, and then the contrast of the rusty curves of the chains.
