Apple Time

Above almost everything, I absolutely love apples. And apple blossoms. And apple pie. And goodness, it  goes on and on. So here's the latest byproduct of our lovely fantastic horizontally parallel apple tree. 

Annnnnnmd, a couple of pretties located directly below said tree. :)

A Study in Nude (Color, Mind You)

I'm honestly flabbergasted. Goodness, I never thought people would really LOOK at this thing. As maybe one or two of you know, I'm not in this for crowd pleasing. This is me trying to improve, bit by bit. But on the other hand, my face has been an awful lot like THIS lately...

Model: Phish <3

So, in payment for the few brief moments of bliss I receive from you guys, I'll try to post more artistic stuff. It seems I live in flower country at the moment though, but I'll do my best.

Little Wonders

This is my single good shot of this guy before he skedaddled back into his hidey-hole. Look at those mandibles! Goodness!

Here's one of several gorgeous moths pressed against our worn out little door. 

We Be Bloomin'

All pictures taken with my trusty Nikon D5000, using a 60 mm micro lens. 

A bit on the abstract side- it's disorienting, but I like it. It's actually a rather bulbous leaf.

The underside of a rather fascinating little mushroom.

Getting Sporty Now

I think I slaughtered my camera with all the running around I did at the latest track meet. The poor thing didn't focus for me about half the time. Here, however, are the survivors. 

And, as usual, a couple of much more successful portraits to make the world go round.
