Sunday on the Patio

Sunday morning time was spent in the little garden area around our apartment patio.  Here are a few of the captures from this time spent working with the new camera using two different 39-year-old lenses from our first SLR camera.  Not much automation for these.  Hope you can enjoy this little bit of beauty I saw this morning.

Gossamer winged dragonfly viewed through our patio fence.


 Some nice grasses.


 Rose bushes and trumpet vines in bloom.


 There is a fence gate, just out of focus as the flowers were getting my attention.


 A white winged dove with a damaged foot/claw.  It limps around our place.  Wish I could help it.


Holding the foot/claw as it perches.


Another Google Awesome animation shows the limp.


At last my husband came to join me and brought press pot coffee!


Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may wish to leave.

    • Yes, old can be good! Though a little creaky and slower at times! I see a black spot on the foot of the dove so that may be part of the issue. Thanks for stopping by, Stewart.

    Oh, my favorite image among your wonderful pictures is the grass one as well♡♡♡ I’m so sorry for the sweet pigeon.

  2. Hope that wing heals. Sometimes it’s rather quick….and I’m hoping that this is the case. Love the video piece you have on the blog. And there’s nothing quite like french-pressed coffee:)


    • Thanks, Don. The bird just visited about an hour ago and seemed to not be quite as protective of the foot. And press coffee is even better when prepared by someone else!
