even though it was “pink”, you still got a blue guy in there. I love you catching the dragonfly on the rose, though!

WOW! I LOVE this photos. Flowers are one of my favorite things to photograph, so I found great joy in comparing the lighting and shadows in your pictures. However, the pink of the first photograph (with the dragonfly) immediately caught my attention. Lovely. Happy WW!

I was inspired to take some macro shots this weekend…and they didn’t turn out very well. Your shots are my inspiration to try again.

TRY again! Half the time my shots don’t come out. So out of 100 photos perhaps… 10-30 are decent.

However did you attain that photo? I couldn’t get the dragonflies to slow down to look at them let alone get a pic?

Keith pointed the dragonfly out to me, it was only there for maybe 30 seconds before it flew away, that was the ONLY photo I have of it!

Fantastic photo of the blue jays! We had a fantastic group of cardinals on our feeder a few weeks ago but lately all we’ve seen are the neighborhood bullies of the bird world: the crows. I’m not refilling our feeder for a few weeks – hopefully the crows will forget about us and the beautiful cardinals, finches and doves will come back.

I’ve only seen maybe 1 or 2 crows, usually the bluejays fight them out lol. We have 2-3 cardinals right now and 5-6 bluejays. It’s AWESOME.

I found you through the #31DBBB challenge and saw your comments on plugins on BlogFrog and honestly..you and your blog and your tips might be the best thing I’ve discovered doing this challenge so far! I feel like I have so much to learn and I’m checking out your plugin posts and blog design info, etc. I cannot thank you so much for sharing this information – and in such a clear fashion! thank you, thank you, thank you!

Love the photographs above too! The bird shots are amazing! I’m good at never having my camera readily available when I see a bird in our feeders.

my favorites are the old world roses. Non hybrids because of the fragrances. I have a collection of about 125 roses. Strangely enough. No Double Delight. I do have a lot of David Austin’s roses.
