Pretty Yellow Flowers

Yellow Flowers

These beautiful yellow flowers were found along a wooden fence along the sidewalk, and I just took a couple shots while waiting at the traffic light. I have no idea what they are called. They looked like roses, but the leaves and stem are not.

Pretty Yellow Flowers
I would have loved to have macro shots, but it never seemed to work out, and by the time I came back the flowers were already went doorman. Maybe next year I can find the time to make a closer examination.

Day and Night Moon Shots

Day Shot of the Moon
I'm doing what I think I was put on this earth to do. And I'm really grateful to have something that I'm passionate about and that I think is profoundly important.
- Marian Wright Edelman

Night Shot Of the Moon
One needs something to believe in, something for which one can have whole-hearted enthusiasm. One needs to feel that one's life has meaning, that one is needed in this world.
- Hannah Senesh

White Butterfly On Marigold

White Butterfly On Marigold
It is not true that marigold will deter critters away. I am telling you, I have planted marigold as border around my little garden, and still found critters of all sort coming to visit. I have seen birds hiding among the flowers trying to find something to eat, squirrels digging holes, and wings friend like this white butterfly loving marigold.

Closer to Butterfly
She was a great teaser! Flickering around as us blinking our eyes every second, but she did stop for a little nectar, and I got my snaps! They are not at all what I had hope to get, but still beautiful for what I could do. I am grateful for the opportunity to say the least.

Menace Squirrel

Squirrel

Squirrels are fun to watch, and make a great subject to photograph. They are cute but very menace at the same time. They eat anything, from flower bulbs to flowers, and they dig holes all over the yard to bury their treasures.

Squirrel Eating
Everyone seems to go "goo goo ga ga" when they see squirrels, but not for me! I've lost too many flower bulbs to welcome them in my yard. They ate my tulips, daffodils, lily plants, sunflowers, and gladiola bulbs to name just a few. What about you? Do you like squirrels?

Yellow Baby Sunflower

Baby Sunflower

A tiny little yellow sunflower came up after waiting for months. Nothing seems to grow well this year but some were patience enough to make an entrance to the earth. Small and all, this yellow sunflower grew, bloomed, and very beautiful.

Yellow Baby Sunflower
This sunflower was about 2 feet off the ground, but it had flower, which is amazing to see that though small, the beauty and joy that it brought to us is the same. Grow, baby, grow!

Pretty Purple Weed Flowers

Purple Weed Flowers

Growing among the hostas plants are these purple weed flowers. They come back every year, and despite being pulled by the root, they still survived. Yes, they are very pretty to see, but if not controlled they can be very invasive.

Pretty Purple Weed Flowers
Since they grow on this side of my house, and turning my driveway into a jungle, I had to pull them after taking a few pictures. Sure, I feel bad, but if you've heard "growing like weed", you would have no choice but to do the same.

Cabbage White Butterfly

Cabbage White Butterfly
This cabbage white butterfly has to be one of the most popular butterflies to see. They are everywhere, and in plenty, but they rarely landed at one spot for long. I am not sure what this white butterfly is eating from this mint leaf, but I was happy that she stopped for a few second.

Close Up Shot Of White Butterfly
I swear I saw her head turning around to look at me! Her eyes were glue on me for a while as if she was curious about me as much as I was of her. She was small and beautiful, and the sun on that day gave me such assistance on some clear photos.

Beautiful Hostas

Hostas

I found that hostas flowers are hard to photograph as it grows vertically and the flowers spread out. Often I like to do macro shooting of just one single flower, but with hostas it doesn't show how pretty this flower really is.

Beautiful Hostas
Thus, I settled for the whole view, and to my surprise, it turned out beautiful. An entire side of my neighbor's house, these hostas flowers bloomed, and multiplied thicker each year. If they are not taking care of by thinning out, my driveway would be overwhelmed.

Pretty Birdie

Pretty Bird

Spotting this bird in the shaded area on my walk, but not quite know the name. It was so pretty to see and very shy. I wanted a close up shot, and the bird didn't allow that to happen.

Pretty Mourning Dove 
After searching the web, describing it in every which way that I could think of, I found out that this is a mourning dove. The name is quite peculiar to me, but the explanation was when they are calling for each other, their sound is sad..Hmm, I wish I could have heard their voice!

Red Gerbera Daisy

Red Gerbera

Yes, it is this red. It is this vibrant out in the middle of a very day. The color almost blinds me to see while trying to snap a few shots. In fact, I really didn't see much of what I was snapping due to the glare!

The Simple Beauty Of Clover

Clover
We can't help it most of the time when we stepped on this beautiful clover. It is because of their abundance, uncultivated, and free that we miss seeing how beautiful clover flowers are.

Gorgeous Question Mark Butterfly

Question Mark Butterfly

Presenting to me one morning was this beautiful butterfly. She was in perfect shape and friendly. Landing right in front of my eyes, and allowed me to come very close for a photo session. I was told she is known as a question mark butterfly because of that white dot and a curve on her wings. Can you spot it?

Reaching For the Moon

Trying to Reach

With my point and shoot camera, I zoomed all the way to the moon! I want that one perfect shot. The moon is fascinating to see, and that sets my mind on its highest curiosity level. Will my camera deliver a photo that mind sees, or will it turn out better?

Deep Pink Peony Flower

Peony Bud

This peony bud was at my brother's house, and taken sometime in late May. I love the smell of peony flowers, and always felt bad for them as there were ants everywhere eating this plant.

The Loveliness of Lady Cardinal

Lady Cardinal

I have noticed something from this lady cardinal and her mate the cardinal, and that is they won't eat from the feeder, but prefer the seeds on the ground. They both came to where the feeders are, stayed on the fence, and made the calling noise, but wouldn't eat.

The Gentle Cardinal

Collage of Cardinal

Chasing after backyard birds can be lot of fun, and challenging! With a point and shoot camera, I don't have the option to change lens or settings. By the time I selected what I wanted, the bird would be no longer in sight.
