Mine are previously shot photos cause I do not like getting in the cold wind to take photos of winter dead things : )  We in the Northern hemisphere are ready for some sun and color!
I will be submitting to Skywatch Friday, Saturday Critters, Macro Monday II, and I Heart Macro.  Please, take a few minutes to visit the meme sites for wonderful photos.  You’ll be glad you did.

Wild Bird Wednesday

Wild Bird Wednesday has so many folks the are true birders.  Make sure you grab the connection below to see all the wonderful birds.

My submission is an update on our friend, Skip.  Skip showed up and has sort of made our patio its property.  Skip is doing much better with the left foot.  The black spot is gone and only a slight limp remains.  It was looking good then it showed up yesterday looking like this.

Thursday Challenge – Water and Good Fences

Sometimes in the world of photo memes a single photo can hold the images for many subjects.  This photo taken at the sight of the Marconi transatlantic transmission within the National Seashore Park on Cape Cod seems to be a good take for both memes. (Have added a third!) Hope you enjoy visiting both all of the photo theme host sites by clicking the buttons at the bottom of this post!

Monday Musings

Silence fills the room as we await a call to join our son and grandsons for a belated birthday celebration for Middle Grandson.  Ten years old.  As I wait I catch up on some blogs and look at the new postings on I Heart Macro 65.  Laura’s poetry/prayer for peace is so relevant for this time.  And there are beautiful photos to enjoy by many other folks who have linked with the macro photography meme.  Magical Mystical Teacher of Macro Monday 2 has a series of thought provoking haiku.

Skywatch and Critters

Thursday I took my morning stroll around the newly discovered small pond.  My camera had one of the old manual lens on it.  The lens was more for closeup shots so my turtle hardly shows there on the rock.   Back home I tried for some ant shots.  Gonna get the hang of these lens yet!  Just so glad I am not having to endure the cost and time for film developing!
