Day 1 - March 30, 2011 - THE BIRDS

Yes, I decided to go for it again.... another 365 days of posting something! So today I start out with BIRDS. And this post is for my friend P2.. more wildlife from my backyard P2.
Came home yesterday afternoon from work and spotted this really BIG bird in the backyard at the end of the drive. I only noticed him cause he was big and I knew he was not my regular visitor.
I ran in and got the camera and tried to get close but before moving in on him I got this shot...he was eating on what I think was a small bird cause I found the feathers. I know its not a great shot but I think it is a hawk?
Apparently Mr. I think he is a hawk has moved in around me somewhere cause this evening as I pulled into the drive again, I noticed him sitting in the tree over the drive. Went in for the camera but he got away.
Next I watched this Chickadee land on a branch so I went after him with my lens. Beautiful red bird just sitting pretty for me. And here is a male and female red bird....sitting in a tree, first come love, second c…

Day 364 - March 28, 2011 - Last Weeks Photo Shoot with Holly

First I want to say Happy Birthday to one of my oldest
and dearest friends, Barb. Hope you had a
great day. Barb and I have been friends since I
was about 12 years old, and anyone wanting
to do the math...I am now 51 yrs old.

Barb lived down the street from me
and I stayed there almost every Friday night.
I was the maid of honor in her wedding
and our kids are the same age. Her first son, Phil,
was born in Nov. and my daughter
was born in Dec. Six and a half years later,
my son Cory came along in July and
right behind him in August came her second
son Christopher. We may go
months without seeing or talking to each other
but I know that for me, her
and her husband Phil are always there...
I hope they realize that I would always
be there for them also.

Now on with the post......This is Holly, my niece, daughter of my
youngest brother Mark. Holly is one of those people that there
is not much she can't do....sing, act, play piano, sports and
grades. So I was not surprised at all …

Day 363 - March 27, 2011 - Marco Friday

I am playing along with another group today that I just found thanks to my friend Pam (P2)... so this will actually be my second post today for day 363 (almost there for my year).
So jump on over to blogging from Bolivia and check out some more great shots on Marco Friday.,....
I am a couple of days late on playing along but I hope that is not an issue.

This is my marco shot for today. Caught this beauty a couple of weeks ago when the magnolia trees were in bloom. Aren't they just such a perfect bloom?

Thanks for stopping in.....again!

Day 362 - March 26, 2011 - Fence Post

A shot I caught when I was out shooting with my niece last weekend. I am always scanning everywhere I go to see if there is something worth shooting. Might not always have my Nikon with me but alot of times I can catch it with the point and shoot..... or file it back to return to with the big camera for the best shot.

Day 361 - March 26, 2011 - Tuesday Mornings Sky

Tuesday morning while on my way to work I had a really nice view. It was a beautiful start to the day and the weather was so nice.
This is the view from the front of my car. This was what I saw coming up in my rear view mirror. Very, very pretty. Have a nice day.
