I’ve been busy sewing again, trying to catch up on other projects for events coming up.
This morning, I decided to take a break and go for a little walk. I took our new camera with me (a Nikon Coolpix P7100). I thought you’d like to see some of my photos!
First, I love birds, and mockingbirds are my favorite. I barely went very far before I saw this pair:
And how about this adorable fluff-ball of cuteness? “I’m hungry!”
Obviously I love taking photos of mockingbirds, and they’re a little braver with letting me get close enough to take their photograph. This one happened to slip on the lamp post, and flapped its wings just as I took the photo. What luck!
I also saw a lot of flowers and butterflies:
Here’s one from last weekend when I was visiting my mother-in-law and her brother. I think this is a young robin (not totally sure, because it just had a bath). It was perched about 12 feet from me, but I had to take the photograph through glass so the birds would visit the yard.
And finally, here is the first photograph I ever took on our new camera. Such pretty colors!
Thanks for looking, and if you’d like to see more, I have them at my Flickr account.
