Hanging Out in the Sun

image

I have learned to take my camera with me when I walk around the yard. Sometimes I have to just sit quietly until pond denizens surface. The big goldfish was lazily floating next to the frog on his branch when Two-Tone swam into the picture. He is less and less black and more orange, leaving me to think he is really a goldfish and not a pond fish. I don’t know when he was hatched or whatever it is called, but he appeared this Spring and was already pretty large. There is a lot I don’t know about fish.

This is a Biokovo Geranium blossom with a teeny tiny grasshopper on its leaf. I didn’t even see him until I downloaded the images.

Same thing with this teeny spider on the Mock Orange. Maybe it’s my mature eyesight, but I don’t see them when I shoot the picture. I am just lucky to see them now. The last few days of sun brings everyone out for their shot of Vitamin D.

  1. I was hoping to get some of that D just by looking at these photos. I sure could use some. I love the little extra characters that show up when you "develop" the photos. Loving that sunshine!
    I see the geranium in the leaves, but the flower itself is quite different. Neat!

    What a treat to have two fish and that amazing frog in the picture. I bet his picture would look great cropped.
    By the way, I love the river series.

  4. Don't ya just love the "country"??? Yesterday while DH and I were having lunch on our enclosed patio we saw 2 doe running across our back field. We think they got chased out because it is turkey season here. I wouldn't want to live in the "city" ever again!

    Could you sent some of the vitamin D here????

  8. I swore I saw a fish that looked alot like a bass or perch in one of your pictures a while back. It was pretty big. Who knows. Those channel cats are great fish, too. Tasty!! They are blue and beautiful.
    Great photos - each morning I try to check your blog to get inspiration. Thanks for that!!
