As I mentioned in today’s Weekly Photo Challenge, I bought a new camera and to become fully acquainted with all of its many functions and features I decided to spend the afternoon sitting the backyard under the shady trees just clicking away.
Here’s what I saw and photographed … if you run the cursor over the individual picture frames you’ll be able to read the captions. Click on the individual pictures for a bigger view.
My super-Tuff lawn chair
Unique weed seed pod
Cedar tree berries
Deck floor board design
Looking up to the heavens
Watching clouds fly over …
Dragon shaped cloud
Big fish – little fish clouds
Turkey shaped cloud – getting hungry
Plane on the flight path to airport that passes over my backyard
Renee scratching her back on the zoysia turf
Rare Eurasian Tree Sparrow and lazy Mourning Dove dropping by for lunch
Squire Squirrel dropping in
With the coast clear, he nibbles on a few sunflower seeds.
Cardinal drops in too
Mrs. Cardinal, too!
Barry the Bluejay dropped by too.
Everyone prefers the ground feeding dish to the hanging feeder.
Renee lifted my bottle of water while I was shooting photos.
Drought free lawn
And that’s how a spent the entire afternoon in back yard. Never did get to read my book. Hope you enjoyed the picture show though.
