Very nice minniev, great use of light...sure seems blue under the house though..
Glad you liked it. Actually they were purple when I first raised the black areas. I got them as far as blue but might can do a bit more. Those harsh shadows drive me nuts.

Re: Feather in the shower

I shot this feather stuck to the wall of our outdoor shower. It was about 2 inches long; I have no idea which type of bird had lost it.

I am proud of finding out exactly who this is: she's a red-banded hairstreak! What a name! She is attracted to 3 plants primarily and this one is dogbane. I hope you're impressed! Here is a great resource for butterflies and their favorite restaurants. Just in case you've snapped a photo of a butter...

Could not be more perfect. Marvelous. Matt
Glad you liked her, Matt.

I made a little video of her spinning out the web, but it is shaky so not much good. She works so quickly! And I love how they look in the morning when the dew is still on them and the early sun reflecting.

very cool - it is good to see them when wandering in the woods. Not too good to not see them and walk right into them, so in the woods, almost always have a walking stick.

Not sure I'm happy with this just yet so any comment or nit-pic is welcomed......
Nice for a grab shot.Good management of skin and eyes. There's something about the way that shadow on her chin lies that bothers me but I don't exactly know how to explain or what to suggest about it.

Re: my place

Thank you for this nice series of windows into your gentle world. The threat these ever-worsening storms pose to beautiful places like yours is pretty scary stuff. I know you and all the creatures you share it with breathed a sigh of relief that you had no worse troubles than a mouse picnic. We are ...
