Day 641 Fred and Smoky

My favorite subject, Fred in the sprinkler. I was taking Fred's picture when he left both the sprinkler and the ball, Smoky not wasting a second, ran in to lay claim to the ball. So I have his picture too!

Day 640 Disney a Half Moon Conure

I spent the day photographing Disney. We had such fun! I have better pictures than this one, but am posting it because I love the expression on his face.

Day 636 Sunflower and Praying Mantis

I was playing with my dogs out back and took a look at one of the sunflowers I planted earlier this summer, when I noticed a baby praying mantis sitting on the head of one of them. Of course I had to take it's picture, but the lighting conditions were horrendous! I took a picture also of one of the smaller sunflowers just to get a good look at it. I am surprised to find out that all the ruffly stuff I never really paid attention to, were tiny little flowers in the shape of a five point stars. How cool is that! a hundred tiny flowers in the head of one big flower. I can't wait until the head of the largest sunflower is ready to seed so I can bring it inside to photograph with lights.

Day 635 Disney a Half Moon Conure

I bought great stuff today at a farmers market to photograph, but once I got home I decided to photograph Disney. My favorite portrait of him so far.
