Sky Watch Friday

This evening on our way home from town, the sun was setting and I was able to catch it just before it went behind the clouds. Just a few moments later, it was behind clouds! I was so glad I pulled over when I did and got the shot.

To join other SkyWatchers, head on over to SkyWatch Friday and link up with us!

The Longest Eyelashes

Cameron has the longest eyelashes! Any female would be thrilled to have these things. But he's been complimented on them his WHOLE life and he hates them. He's asked if he can please cut them shorter. Uhhh, no! I don't think so! Lucky little boy!

Flowers In My Yard

Just some different angles, lighting and focus... on flowers in our yard. I sure do enjoy the sharp focus and blurred backgrounds. These are all SOC (straight out of camera) shots. Click to enlarge. =0)

Wildflower on the Riverbank

I don't know the 'actual' name of these flowers. I only know what my Grandfather called them when I was growing up. They are not a "politically correct" term, and I will not be repeating it to you here. HOWEVER, I will forever remember what "Granddad" always called these babies.

Just a Leaf

It may just be a leaf, but I thought it had character!

Bell Flower

A beautiful bell flower found along the banks of the river at Zedlar Mill in Luling, Texas.

The Tamest Dragonfly

While the kids swam at Zedler Mill, I found this big dragonfly just as it settled down on a leaf. I crept up to it and slowly began taking pictures. Each time I'd get "the shot" I'd then risk moving slightly closer. No matter how close I got, he never flew away. Finally Cameron came out of the river and joined me. He was able to touch this fella...

And when Cameron extended his finger, the dragonfly climbed right on. Cameron walked everywhere with him for about 10 minutes before the dragonfly finally flew away into the bushes. But not before I'd gotten some pretty cool shots of them!

In this shot, Cameron is in focus....

And then in this shot, the dragonfly is in focus...
