OK, so most of our pictures are from our back yard again – although I did switch it up by taking some in the front yard today. Ha!

A female goldfinch getting some lunch.
We have quite the eclectic backyard ground crew – squirrel, cardinal, redwing blackbird…

The pet hummingbird I mentioned in this post. It’s a ruby throated hummingbird. It’s interesting how the red only shows up from certain directions – in the picture on the wire his throat looks black.

New decorations in the back yard. Actually, we’ve had the butterflies a while, but decided to relocate them to the cairn. I love the gnome :)

Dr. M took some gorgeous flower pictures on his way home from school.

As I was getting ready to leave for work I saw this guy in the back yard - he was a big'un!
Zinnia & rose from the back yard, along with a couple of close-ups of shells in the cairn. If you look closely you can see that the creeping Charlie is doing its creeping thing (it’s the green plant in the bottom center picture).

The State of the Bug: TGIF!
Saturday, June 8th
Today Dr. M trimmed our hedges. I mowed the back yard & then I broke the mower (yes, I did think it was a creative way of getting out of mowing the front yard). Don’t worry, it’s fixable. Dr. M borrowed our neighbor’s mower to finish up.
I used the panorama feature on my camera to get a picture of the daisies. I think we’re going to have just a few this year. Yeah, a few dozen – ha!
One of our friends sent us this postcard that she designed herself using Zentangle. Thanks Kim – it’s gorgeous!
I am fascinated by the fact that each of our cameras “sees” things very differently. The picture on the left is using my little Nikon Coolpix. The one on the right is the Nikon DSLR. The picture on the left is closer to the right color but it’s still not exactly right. It’s really somewhere between the two. Interesting!
Go to Mamma Fran’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
