Pleasant Petals

A little something to help brighten your day I hope. Today’s post is a selection of recent floral shots I have taken that people have requested prints of. I figured if they wore good enough for some to hang on a wall, then they would serve worthy for a photo blog :) Hopefully you fins something worthy of bring a smile to your day.

All Birds – Bird-Watching Photographs

Back Bird-Watching Again with a range of lenses and several types of little feathered friends in this post from Eagles to Woodpeckers and more. With us spending some of this season in Minnesota, I’m hoping to have some new species soon to add to my list, I already found the Common Loon to photograph the other day, hopefully something new this coming week as well!

Watching Waterfowl

If you’re photographing ducks, you will need to keep the sun behind you. When the ducks jump off the water, the sun won’t only light them up, but it also will light the water to enable you to see the splashes. You will also want the wind at your back, so when the they come off the water, they will fly into the wind. Often, getting both the sun and the wind on your back flank can be difficult.

A Flower Garden Greeting

Morning Macros in the Flower Garden

Perfumes are the feelings of flowers, and as the human heart, imagining itself alone and unwatched, feels most deeply in the night-time, so seems it as if the flowers, in musing modesty, await the mantling eventide ere they give themselves up wholly to feeling, and breathe forth their sweetest odors. Flow forth, ye perfumes of my heart, and seek beyond these mountains the dear one of my dreams!

Geese, Goslings and Carp Entertainment at Maynards

My husband and I decided to have lunch at Maynard’s Restaurant on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota. This was our first time visiting the restaurant. We were completely surprised to see geese, gosling’s and carp swimming around each other fighting over bread that customers were trying to feed to the geese.

Quenching Your Thirst

All about the drinks! That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.

Birds Make My Camera Smile

Bird Watching is Your lifetime ticket to the theater of nature. Watch with your ears first, to find the good shots. An open window can be a revelation to a person who doesn’t get up at dawn. The birds sing like mad on a spring morning, but most of the music is over by the time the sun rises. But whatever the time of day, the idea is to tune in to the sounds the birds are making. Each species makes sounds that are unique to itself, and you can identify the birds by those sounds just as easily as you can by their shape or color.
