Lizard Looking In

Walking out the front door,
I noticed a peeping-tom...of sorts.

At first, I just laughed... then I grabbed the
camera once I noticed that he WAS
looking indoors!

What a CREEP...
I mean, what a creepy-crawly!

Once he figured out there would be
no show to see, he moved on.

Lil Ladybug


On the same day that I was taking
photos of bluebonnets,
I began watching this lil ladybug.

It was crawling back and forth on the same leaf.
Once it got to the leaf's point (again),
it took off... a little tiny dot in the sky.
After a second or so, I couldn't see it anymore.

Getting a photo of insects and animals in nature
is hard to do, since you can't direct them,
or tell them to hold still for just one more shot....

So, sometimes, you just gotta click
otherwise the moment (or the bug) is gone.

Spring Bluebonnets

Texas Bluebonnets

Since it hasn't rained much, I wasn't expecting
to see many wildflowers, but to my surprise,
the bluebonnets did appear...
Not many, but at least we were able to spot a few.

Those blue petals stand out in the sea of green.
Capturing them in a photo is my way of
"picking" them so that others can still enjoy them, too.

And, by taking a photo of them, they'll last longer
than if I dug them up and re-planted them....
so go ahead -
Take a picture, it'll last longer.
