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.
This pink bush has given me fits for a couple of years, photography fits that is. When I shoot, I get lots of red and glare and little contrast. A Google+ friend, Dawn, posted a photo taken late in the day with a flash, next night I was out trying it. First attempt:
A little place for the hummers. I have one particular male that comes to visit and stands on top of one of the shepherd hooks between drinks. It is amazing to see him stand so still for so long, no wings moving. How DOES he hold on, that hook is good size diameter and his little feet are so, well, little!
I hate thistle, really hate it. And, my yard has a lot of thistle, a LOT! I was about to remove (again) some thistle that has invaded my flower beds and just will NOT go away when I looked down and saw this fella (or gal, or whatever!) guarding my thistle.
As much as I hate thistle, I hate snakes more. The snake, he (she or it) won, and the thistle is still there.
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.

Things I love: Family, Grandchildren, Rving, computers (sometimes, but not when they are being bad), family history, yorkies, techy toys like my iToys, photography.
I am all of these, so I write about them all, and more.
