Explore #10..and Front Page...thanks everyone...I have been out most of the afternoon..buying new plants and even a Purple Leaf Plum Blossom Tree for my little patio of my condo..and got plants that attract the hummingbirds, bees, butterflies , etc.. So maybe they will start to visit my lil yard/patio soon..the Blossoms are almost over with for the season here..and the tree is a new one..thin, but pretty tall..estimate 10 ft maybe..so perhaps the birds will come and hang out at the top..fingers crossed!
Well, yesterday morning, I went over to Shipley Nature Center...to take some pics..and I was pretty excited to see some butterlies flitting around..and hummingbirds too. They have a section with special plants that butterflies and hummingbirds love to snack on..So I got some shots of b-flies on the flowers and was pretty excited about that...! And then this happened! I thought it looked pretty good on the LCD screen, but sometimes after you download to the PC, not always as good as I thought..Well, you cannot believe how excited I was when I saw how this came out...Woo-hoo...Shipley is only open Mondays-Saturdays 9-1pm..although, today they stayed open until 2pm..since it was so nice out and they had several visitors..I can't wait to find the time to go back for more..I got some pretty good hummingbird captures as well..I am in love with this place now..they have a gr8 display of poppies too..which I took a zillion shots of..;-D Have a Super Sunshine Sunday everyone! Yay! Was hoping for some red in here somewhere for Scarlet Sunday too..maybe next time!
