Green Darner


I was in the right place at the right time to quickly capture this beautiful dragonfly as it paused on a cone flower.


Busy Bee

BeeConeHere is another Cinemagraph I just created. I think I may start to get addicted to doing these. My mind is swimming with ideas!

In this one I also had the foreground flowers move with the bee. I like the effect it gives.

I wish the quality was a little better, but since I am working with a GIF, I can’t expect much. It’s still fun though!

Summer Blooms

We had a nice visit at the Botanical Gardens this morning. The flowers are just gorgeous and I decided it would be a good day to bring my camera and take some pictures of the boys. I feel like summer is literally flying by and I’ve missed so many opportunities to take pictures. I’m always taking pictures with my phone, but it’s just not the same. The sun was a little higher than I would have liked, so it was hard to get some shots because of the harsh light. But I’m happy with how these turned out. I used my Nikon D5000 and 5omm f/1.8 lens.

I have some stories and more pictures to share. But I have to admit I haven’t been the best at posting for the past few months.

I’ll have to work on that. Thanks for stopping by.. and check back soon. There will be more, I promise. 🙂
