It’s that time of year where bugs are beginning to emerge from wherever it is they hide during the winter.
These are my favorite images from an afternoon drive to Succor Creek with my dad last weekend. It was a windy, dreary day, but there was an amazing sunset on the drive home.
I saw a stink bug on a pile of wood last week, minding its own business.
In November, I shared pictures of some mushrooms that were growing near the driveway. I noticed the mushrooms were still present last week, so I took more photos to make a comparison. Here are the fungi, exactly 62 days apart.
I went out in the desert this weekend to practice flying a drone, which, conveniently, isn’t too far away from home. I also brought my camera along in case anything interesting popped up. As expected, the winter desert was decidedly desolate, but the lighting was great and really enhanced the landscape.
Yesterday was a nice winter day, with the temperature approaching the 50s, so I stood out in the backyard for about forty minutes, looking for any birds that might happen to fly or land close enough to photograph with a 55-200mm lens.
There was some thick frost last week. Photographing it was a little challenging because I would occasionally bump or breathe on the subject, but luckily there was plenty around.
For the past 11 months, I have been taking monthly photographs of a tree in the backyard.
The weather has continued to be cold and overcast, making backyard photography a challenge, so I took on that challenge by doing some black and white photography.
There’s only one photo this week, but it’s a higher-resolution image than normal so you can zoom in to see the details. You can also suggest a macro subject for the next blog post!
