The Wonders Of Nature

For the last month Mother nature has been giving me so many photo opportunities. Along with natures amazing canvas comes a lot of spring cleaning and yard work. I have been posting many shots of my yard, I hope I an offering enough variety to keep people interested.   
Perfectly framed 

Pedals of life 
It looks like a birds nest full of babies 

Ready to burst open any day  

So soft and smells so good.

An Accidental Capture

I was on my way outside to take photos when I found this little beetle crawling on my house.

Most people spend their lunch hour with friends, running errands etc. Dave goes home and takes photos!

Our friendly insects create very elaborate mansions

The Life & Death Of A Tulip

Everyday at lunch time for 12 consecutive days I photographed the same Tulip. Notice day 4, it was cold & raining, the flower closed.

I will give an unmarked copy of the collage, or the 12 individual images to educators for classroom use. All I ask in return is credit to be given to me.

Yesterday a co-worker of mine said he had a gift for me. He knows I am into photography, so he gave me an old 35MM camera that belonged to his father.  
 Plus side - you can take a photo with one hand, and it has a dual view finder. One on the back & one on the top. They made a macro add-on lens, but the only tripod was this mini-one. It was in the accessory box.   
Down side- according to the internet it is a battery hog, and the motors are noisy relative for an expensive camera.
 Nice, big LCD screen with auto zoom.  

 Miniature tripod for self portraits 

  This is the built-in flash on the left. 

 The label below lists the features that were ahead of their time. 

It is an odd looking thing, from what I can find on the internet. It could have been a great camera at the right time, but was basically a failure.  He included the original box and a accessory kit in the box. The original receipt was included. The camera was purchased in Medford, Oregon September 18th, 1990 for $373.89. I was able to find a battery for it and I plan to buy a roll of film and try it out.

Nectarines in August  
And Apples in September.

April Flowers

 This little critter was having lunch.

Just a few of the early risers in my front yard. 
The very morning this tulip was wide open.
