Lions…Tigers…and Bears…OH MY!...

August 04, 2010
So I lied…there are no lions, tigers or bears in this post. But, there is as…gorilla, buffalo, panther (I think that’s what this is although it could be a lioness),flamingo, elephant, and ostrich butt!I just needed a good excuse to share some more of my photos from the zoo (that I promised I would share weeks ago). I also thought that considering this week’s In a Yellow House theme is “The Animal Kingdom,” that I could really pimp out all of my animal photos (and further increase your chances of submitting one of your photos into this week’s...

Why Can’t We Be Friends

June 29, 2010
I should warn you…this might be a stretch, but…I told you I would be sharing pictures from the zoo over the course of the week. I think this is a great illustration of friendship. I also think that nothing says “summer” like a couple of turtles at the zoo? Actually, I thought it’d be boring if I posted yet another flower or bug shot…and I’ve already posted a ton of summer rain shots…oh, I even posted the summer lovin’ shot. I’m getting a tad bit sleepy, so I’m posting a 2 for 1 special. So yeah, we saw some incredible...

June 28, 2010

It just so happens that my husband and I were at the zoo on Saturday, and we ran into Kitty Paw’s older brother. Don’t you just love that my macro lens can get so close that it looks as if I was right on top of him (I could have gotten this shot with a telephoto like the 55-250mm as well) – yeah, I’m not that crazy! It was so...

My Best Shot (this week)

June 10, 2010
The moment I walked in the door tonight, I felt like I was catching up…and I’m still not caught up. However, in the past few days, I have not had my camera on me (at least not my DSLR), so I was excited to snap away (meanwhile, I haven’t unpacked, started laundry, etc). I first started fulfilling my Scavenger Hunt Sunday items and then saw Kitty Paw mesmerized by a bug. I love the shot below…the look on her face…the concentration…the ambition. Of course, she didn’t get the bug (it was outside and she was clearly inside), but she made quite an effort...
