Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this very cool spider web hanging off the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. Click on it to see it in better detail. Thanks, Maryann!
I took this a month or two ago, but completely forgot it existed. I spotted these rocks which had been colored with sidewalk chalk along the edge of someone’s yard off of Wildflower Dr. I thought it was cute, so I took a picture.
Speaking of pictures…
A call for guest photographers!
I’ve been ill for the last handful of weeks, and have barely been able to use my camera. That means I’m short on photos, so if anyone has any photos of the area they have taken they would like to share here, I would love you so very much. Please see the Contribute a Photo page. Thank you!
When I was out a few mornings ago to get some frost images, I spotted this leaf with not only frost but also some broken up ice on it. The leaf was stuck to the ground, and I knew if I tried to pick it up, it would tear.
My version of a frosty leaf is nowhere near as pretty as guest photographer Maryann Nielson’s version I posted recently. She nailed that one.
Guest photographer Denny Barnes has the coolest house guests, and he certainly knows how to bring out the best in them with his camera. His description:
Last year I had just one female Anna’s Hummingbird that stayed all winter. This year I have several still here and a male showed up about a week ago. I have 3 feeders and he thinks they are all his. He spends so much time running the females off he doesn’t get much time to feed himself. I’ll send along several shots I took of him through our dinning room window.
Below are the other shots Denny sent. Thanks, Denny!
I decided to go outside yesterday to see if I could capture some frost with my camera, because capturing it with my hands would be a bit pointless (it melts, you see). The above image is a crop of a larger macro shot I took of some frost on blades of grass. I was surprised at how much detail I caught, since it was handheld and I was wobbling as I knelt down to take the photo. Click on the photo to see it larger.
