"Why Did I Take That shot?"

The theme this week is "Why Did I Take  Shot" by me.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Mondays and voting begins after that.  Lew is still missing in action.

Why did I take shot? 
Somethings on the window let's see what it is. Get your camera and take a photo.
 Oh that's a bad idea. You have reflections galore.
I am in the photo and my camera. What is it?
Well if I go outside I see it is a Tree Frog looking for some bugs.

The theme this week is "Something Blue" by Christine.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Mondays and voting begins after that. Christine is gone and Lew is missing in action.

These are some tiny blue flowers by a friends house. They are about a 1/4" across and put on a pretty Spring show.
They are almost all blue.
There are a few white mixed in.
My daughter's blue liner gives blue hue to the pool. It will be ready to use real soon.

Fun-Foto

The theme this week is "Fun-foto" by Mac.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Mondays and voting begins after that. Christine is gone and Lew is missing in action.

The Fun-Foto is of an unusual capture. An animal in action with a fly-by. Can you guess what it is.
 Here is another shot and you may have a guess.
This makes it look like a white face with black hair.
Why it is a Canada Goose feeding on the lake.
Here is one which I just missed.
It was a flight of Cormorants taking to wing.

"Something New"

The theme this week is "Something New" by me.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Mondays and voting begins after that. 

This week I thought I'd show some bird captures from last year. This is a hawk that came down to the lake for a quick bath. I was docking the boat but respected his space.
He would dip his wings in the water and splash around a bit.
I tried to get him as he took off but his wings were a little too fast.
Here are a group of geese headed into a culvert.
This is a Flight of Cormorants, that is what a group of Cormorants are called - a Flight. They were just taking to the air.

"Not What It Seems"

The theme this week is "Not What It Seems" by Kathy.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Mondays and voting begins after that. Mac is travelling around England and Lew is missing so only three of us.

There are three of these plants growing in my flower garden. They have 5 leaves as you can see. 
  I did not plant them and they are not what they seem.
They are a slow growing plant. Do you know what they are?
They were planted by the squirrels to save the nut until the next year. They forgot to come back so the seed turned into this plant.
They are baby Ohio Buckeye Trees that are growing. The tree is starting to bud and after pollination little buckeyes will start to grow.
