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.
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.
Sometimes when we go to Galveston we take a ferry ride and you always see some neat things along the way.
Bolivar is the opposite of Galveston there is hardly any traffic and no shopping there except a little store here and there. Life seems to move at a much slower pace.
On this ferry ride, we saw a few shrimp boats and a few birds catching a free ride. You know those shrimpers have to get annoyed with the birds swarming the boat all the time.
The Gulf of Mexico was quite busy this last weekend.
I had read that ducks love watermelon rind so I had been putting some out for the ducks and other wildlife.
The other day I noticed about 4 butterflies on the old rind I am guessing they are drinking the juice.
We have had some watermelons we picked that looked good but they were not very sweet. Instead of just throwing them away we share with the wildlife.
Give it a try and see if you can get a few butterflies feeding on your watermelon.
