The Hummingbird Duo


The Hummingbird duo, scoping out where to buzz off to next. These birds are quite difficult to photograph as they’re constantly moving! Fortunately, sometimes they stop for a millisecond or so. ;-)

Photograph taken at La Paz Waterfall Gardens, located on the slopes of the Poas volcano in Costa Rica.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin’


Ah, the splendid sunsets, trips to the coast, boats in the water, the gentle sway of the palm trees, that says Summer Lovin’ to me!

Here Come the Hummingbirds

I just finished going through the Hummingbird photographs I took at La Paz Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica. Here’s a sneak peak, I’ve saved the best for later. Gosh, these are some beautiful birds!

What Is It?!? – Week 29/52

Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one. – Dr. Seuss

Well, I finally did it, I missed an entire week of posting. Somehow Week 28 disappeared in my world – as we were on a fun-filled vacation in Costa Rica. But now I’m trying to get back on track. So let’s pick up and forget last week. Here is your 29th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!? Week 29/52


What Was That?!? Week 27/52

Tracey guessed it immediately, “So this weeks pic … fireworks?” Dang. Ding ding ding! Yep, fireworks, taken as I was zooming in and out. Great guess! “Yay! But I have to admit, on July 4th I got a lot of photos like this, so this was kid of easy for me.”



Maybe this week’s will be just a tad harder? :D


A Walk in the Rainforest

My family took a trip/tour of Costa Rica with 28 other people. By the end of the trip we were all good friends. I even got a new “bestie!” Here is a sampling of our first trek around the Arenal Volcano in La Fortuna. This was also our first taste of what happens in a rainforest: yes, it rains! I wrapped my beloved Canon 5D Mark II in a Target bag (made a hole in the bottom for the lens and somehow made a toga for the camera). I called this my “redneck camera cover.” It worked somewhat, but a later trip showed it certainly wasn’t airtight. (no worries, all is good!) I was awed by the beauty a volcano thrusts forth, emerging from the Earth and embracing the land.

Pura Vida!

Mommy and Daddy Cardinal

We have a mommy and daddy Cardinal with a family of two babies in a nest resting just about eye level in our Bradford Pear tree. I just happened to be around, armed with camera, when daddy Cardinal arrived with food and cautiously made his way, branch to branch, to the nest to feed his babies. This series of pictures, by the way, justifies my entire purchase on that new Canon 70-300mm L lens – you can see the food in the Cardinal’s mouth!

Fireworks, Oh My!

The 4th of July is wildly celebrated here in America. I always enjoy photographing fireworks, you never know what you’re going to end up with! Taken at Southwood in Tallahassee, Florida.

P.S. Notice the moon appearing in some of these shots!

What Is It?!? – Week 27/52

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls. – Anais Nin

My mind has already left for our upcoming trip to Costa Rica. I guess I better do laundry to pack so my body can join up soon! In the meantime, here is your 27th weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!? – Week 27/52


What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture – Week 26/52

Kayla started off the guessing game with “Rosemary.” Not Rosemary. Jude mused, “Darn! I should have come back to you on the car. I meant to but Wimbledon is on now so I have been distracted from blogging! … Stamens from a lily?” Not stamens from a lily. “Is it a plant?” Yes. Well, kind of. Ding ding ding! So exactly what was it? What you saw was a very tiny weed (zoomed in very close), which looked so interesting with these spike-looking protrusions.


P.S. My family will be traveling next week, and I’m leaving the computer behind, which means your week 28 mystery picture will be late, maybe just in time for week 29. But who knows! If I can find a way, I will make a post.
