After viewing a few pictures of a jumping spider crawling on an eggplant plant in the garden, I was reminded of a traveler venturing through wild and unfamiliar territory.
I was going to sit down in one of our patio chairs when I noticed a praying mantis had stolen my seat.
The sunflower was once a peaceful place of pollen and opportunity, but times have changed.
Occasionally plants develop in some funny ways.
Do you ever see the sunlight hitting an object a certain way and think, “wow, that looks really neat?” The object could be something completely nondescript but it suddenly looks like something inspiring out of a movie.
That’s no moon… Wait, false alarm.
I don’t actually know if everyone loves hummingbirds, but I’ve never met anyone who dislikes them. They are amazing creatures, so it’s neat that they are also common birds. This week I was able to photograph two hummingbirds (I’m not completely sure of the types, so don’t want to misidentify them). Here are the best of those photos.
Most of the grasshoppers I see around the house are gray, tan, or brown and not very colorful, so I was slightly excited to notice a green grasshopper munching on a basil plant in the garden.
This week, I’m outlining the process I go through that results in some of my best nature photographs.
Fluttering around the back yard last week was a yellow-orange dragonfly. I first noticed it in the evening because its wings sparkled and almost appeared to glow in the sunlight.
