Even I can find the beauty in a weed and it’s flowers.
I love taking pictures of flowers but especially using my macro lens because it shows all the little details we might not see otherwise.
These are some of my favorite weeds to take pictures of. They are called ” Daisy Fleabane” but the flowers are truly amazing when you look at them up close.
I truly love the springtime when the flowers start to bloom and everything turns green again.
Our wisteria is on the back fence and it always puts on a show. This year was no exception.
This sunrise today in Manvel, Texas was exploding with colors.
The colors were shining through the clouds.
Today is a beautiful day.
Every time after a rain we have mushrooms pop up and it is always in the same spots in the yard.
Sometimes it is those little tiny ones and sometimes it is these. Since I am not a mushroom expert I have no idea what kind they are.
They say if you pull them up by the root they will not come back this is NOT true I have done that numerous times.
I love trying to photograph them at different angles but it is honestly hard to capture their true beauty.
Pelicans are so amazing they fly with such grace as they glide in for a landing.
Here are a few pictures of some brown Pelicans.
They seem to spend a lot of times floating around in the water in between fishing for their food.
I took these pictures near Galveston and the Pelicans were everywhere.
At our daughter and son in laws house in the pond, there are quite a few bullfrogs.
Jeanelle had told me to try and get close enough to take a picture because they seem to be fairly friendly. I was using my 400mm lens and was able to get this shot.
I call it “Eye of the Frogs” because all you see are the eyes.
Nature is all around us just waiting to be photographed at the perfect moment.
We have always had cardinals in our yard but this year we have a lot.
There are so many juveniles going through so many different stages you have to laugh about it.
The males especially seem to get the worst of it and tend to look so awkward during this stage.
In the pictures, below the males are in the first two pics you can tell their feathers are changing colors so they have two colors of feathers right now.
The females are the last two pictures but all these birds are juveniles.
