Another Visitor!

We have a visitor in the small pond that Chris made for me this year. He is pretty shy. When we get close to the pond he jumps back in.

I was able to get a couple pictures of him before he realized I was there.

Happy Fall!

Since I have had a lot of time on my hands, I have been doing some stitcheries. I'm not sure what I am going to do with them yet. Hubby has to make some frames for them when he gets time.

I still have to tea dye them, but I figured I will be making more so I might as well do them all at once.

I like to do these while sitting in front of the TV. They are also easy to travel with since you don't need to bring much with you.

Almost Late!

While packing my lunch for work the other morning, I noticed this little guy out our kitchen window. I went and grabbed the camera off the dining room table to try to get a couple of pictures.

I took a few pictures through the window, then I opened our back door and propped the screen with my foot hoping she wouldn't fly away.

I guess she was too hungry to care that I was taking her picture. I am really enjoying our new camera and almost made myself late for work =)

Pearl Crescent

Chris and I went on a hike on Saturday to try out our new camera. We found a few things to take pictures of.

Band-Winged Meadowhawk ~ Male

We went for a hike where Chris and my brother do a lot of their hunting. It is such a pretty area. We went to both ponds. Let me tell you, one pond was easier to get to than the other.

Ruby Meadowhalk ~ Male

We didn't know that this is where we would end up. We both had shorts on, not too smart on our part. Our legs sure took a beating. Darn wild rose bushes.

Black Swallowtail Butterfly

We both enjoy going on these hikes. I just don't know why we don't do it more often.
