A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.
From somewhere deep in the archives. I just love the "look" on the face. I know, creatures really do not have "looks" or thoughts like we do, but, really, don't you see it?? He is asking, "Are you talking to me??"
This little guy or gal, whose photo is from the April 2009 archives, was not skittish. We were having a coffee and desert in a local park with our Son, his wife and the grandchildren, while this guy/gal skirted around us. Bet it was hoping we would feed it! We did not.
From the Archives, June, 2009, at the stickbuilt. The geese, along with several other families, waddle from our pond, up the hill, cross the street, and into the neighbor's acreage, ending up spending the day in his pond. Every evening, they reverse the route, crossing the neighbor's acreage, the street, down our hill, back into our pond and beyond into the swamp. We have seen 3 and 4 families lined up making this trip together.
For many years, well over 20, I had a Hoya growing in a pot at the house. It was quite a profuse bloomer. Just after this photo was taken in 2009, it was over taken by some nasty sticky white fuzzy goop, that eventually killed the plant. You can actually see that nasty sticky white fuzzy goop in the middle of this photo, on the stem. I was very sad to see it go, but, I still have a few nice photos of the blooms. I loved how it was a star in a star in a star in a star type bloom.
In December, I shared a photo of a cholla, the fruit, in yellow. At Boot Hill Cemetery, Tombstone, Arizona, I found this specimen, with a orange/red colored fruit. Due to the bright and totally abundant sunshine (which I just cannot stand - YA, who do I think I am kidding - I LOVE this abundant and totally bright sunshine), the color is not true, but you can get the idea.
At Monticello Virginia, home of Thomas Jefferson, there is a garden pavilion down by the vegetable gardens. In April of 2008 we visited Monticello, I snapped this shot through the windows, looking out at the spring foliage just starting to bud out.
I have found I am having so much fun with the camera that there are many more photos taken than will fit on my blog, Reflections From the Fence.
I post flora and fauna photos here. One subject a day, a flora and fauna 365 project. I managed to get past the first 365 and started the second year of this daily exercise. I made it till sometime in November of 2011. And, now, Flora and Fauna is just a regular ole blog, posting when I have something to share and the time to post it.
Some posts are wordy, some are wordless. My goal is to make them as wordless as possible. However, if I find something interesting during the posting/research process, I may share, ok, I will probably share. I hope you find the words and photos to be interesting.
Remember, by clicking on the photo, it will open in a new window, usually a larger view of the image, more detail, etc. Please use your back button to return here to Reflection's Flora and Fauna.
Thanks for stopping by.

I am all of these, so I write about them all, and more.
