So much time has passed since my last post.  I think it is time I began to post again, so here goes.   The best thing that has happened is the birth of my first grandbaby, Nick, in July of 2011.  He is absolutely the light of my life!  Sweet, rambunctious, happy, loud, loving, tender, smart, and I could go on and on!  And if Nick isn't special enough, we have just announced that our family will be growing again in January of 2015.  Nick will soon have a baby brother or sister!

I have been busy with my photography, but never busy enough!  I will try over the next few weeks to put together some albums of the work I have done and try to give you an idea of what I have been doing and where I have been.  

One thing I have discovered is that I don't have to leave my yard to find plenty of photography subjects.  Depending on the time of year, there are many kinds of birds and insects along with flowers and garden plants.  By now I think my neighbors must be used to the "crazy lady" who walks around with a camera in her hand all the time.  No one has reported me for spying (that I know of) when I'm hiding in my blind in the backyard snapping shots at the birds.  The two photos above were taken in my yard.  Patience is the key when working with wildlife.  I often set up what I think will be the perfect setting for a shot only to sit in the blind for hours getting nothing.  That's when I regroup and try something new.  Often more than once.  I will try to get some shots of a few of my set-ups and post them for you to see.  I'd also love to hear about any ideas you might want to share.
