Finally!!! Time out to play!!

It's been ages since I got out and played with my camera. Between the HOT and HUMID weather...or the pouring down rain it has just not been good shooting weather. Went out for a couple walks this week and got a few pix that I like.

Took this one today along the edge of one of our local lakes...

Here's a couple from last weekend's outing:

My little girl is growing up....

Can't believe she is in High School already. We spent the day yesterday shopping for some cute teen clothes. This is her first year not wearing school uniforms and we had so much fun shopping. She got contacts this summer...so glasses are a thing of the past too. So many changes this year and it is so good to see her growing up and handling them so well. Have a GREAT YEAR, my (still) baby girl!!!

More Butterflies!!!

Another trip to the Lukas Butterfly Encounter today, and it was a HOT one. I may just have to wait until Fall or Winter before I go again.

I got a new lens, a Canon 100mm 2.8 macro and was itching to try it out. It's going to take a bit of getting used to as the DOF is so shallow when working with macro, but it is VERY sharp and I think I am going to LOVE it!

Fireworks!!!!

Hope everyone had a fun-filled 4th of July! Here's just a few of the fireworks shots that I got last night. Spent the day with friends and family, and although I took the camera, I didn't even take it out once. Just spent the time enjoying the moment!

Lukas Butterfly Encounter

Took a trip to Oviedo today to the Lukas Butterfly Encounter. We saw lots of beautiful butterflies and flowers. It was very hot and humid and the butterflies were quite active. We got to see newly hatched butterflies and lots of caterpillars. It as a fun place, easy to get to, and one that we will surely go to again.

Osprey


We have a pair of Ospreys that like to sit in a tree outside our 5th story windows. Today one of them decided to have lunch. He must have been MIGHTY hungry as the fish was almost bigger than he was...and it definitely had to have weighed more!
