JT with a stick not so easy to throw and capture
JT with a stick not so easy to throw and capture
You already know that if you are a friend and follower. I wanted to do a post as this year comes to an end. Yes not a Re-Blog though I love sharing cool stuff others spend the time to add to WordPress.
So this one will be of a Happy Dog. You see when the weather is warm you will never see her do this the flying disc will get all the play time but let a few inches of snow fall and you knows right where she has tucked her winter toy away. I have told you she is smart a time or two right.
Here is a series I shot of her and her winter toy. I kick then snap photo, this time with a bulky Nikon not as easy to capture her as I did with my Kodak so excuse the faults in the photos and just try to see the Joy as I witnessed.
Quit taking photos and kick my ball!
She hates when I say last one. She will play till she drops in this kind of weather. As she ages the summer heat takes it’s toll on her but winter no way. She watches the squirrels play and eat in the yard as I do my beading and every now and then she will turn her head and look at me with those beautiful eyes begging to go back out. You see she knows me after almost 8 years Last One really are just for a minute or two. I get dressed again and open the door and off she goes to where she left her ball. No wonder the heating bill is so high in and out like your children see she is my little girl.
Happy New Year from our home up here in New Hampshire to yours. May this year coming be a beautiful one with peace and harmony for all mankind.
No not really a competition for photographers, this day was all about the dogs but him with his BIG CAMERA, didn’t capture THIS FACE! I was far away using zoom on a day it was pouring out too boot. While waiting for my little girl to compete, in her very first Toss and Catch competition I filled in hours of waiting with taking photos of the most expert of dogs doing their thing but JT won 1st and 4th on her two tries, yes we were so proud of her and the patience she showed that day was amazing! She laid and watched all that went before her. What a special dog she is but have you ever heard of a Border Collie who sits still, lol we still smile at the very thought of that rainy day.
Take your dog out sun or rain they don’t mind honest, they just want to play with you.
Hummingbirds and me go back a long way.
I love the little jewels who make this long
journey here each spring.
They arrive just about the time my Apple tree blooms.
It is one reason the tree is still here how would I know when to get their sugar-water
ready and hang out the feeders. I always have the place ready for them to rest, fuel up
and build their nests and raise their young.
The photos here are taken with an Kodak Easy Share , no tripod and some just in the wrong light
for such an inexpensive camera but I wanted you to see some of them who call this
place their 2nd home.
Salvia is always here waiting for them too.
She is so tiny and beautiful as she sits and watches me
She will soon have her strength back from her long trip
and ready her nest and raise her little ones.
A young male sits on a Lilac branch.
I always keep feeders close enough to a bush, for them to take cover in.
I wonder how I will capture them on a tripod
as they dart to and from flower to feeders
must learn to use flash to stop their action!
I use a variety of feeders for their nectar.
Always near plantings or real flowers they love.
As you can see the sugar trumps the Petunia this time.
Always waits for its turn at one of the open spots in the feeder.
Right now the bees and this female are sharing nicely
Hoped you liked my Hummingbirds
27 years ago when I had to pick a CB Handle this
was it, Hummingbird is what the truckers knew me by
coast to coast.
I have just one tattoo and it is a life-size one, yes
Born to be Wild!
Have a nice day
Don’t forget to plant or place a feeder out for these little ones.
We had taken a trip to the shore to detect the beach, the waves were rough and the winds brisk.
We found a ring and change but once again, I captured on my Easy Share, a few interesting
photos on the way home.
These were Sail Boats that had been knocked over by the winds.
As we came along this curvy section of shore road I see this young man suiting up to catch the AIR. I pulled over and caught some action shots like I said I am ALWAYS READY!
I really wanted to just watch as I had never seen this done, close up in a marsh no less.
His Kite goes up in the wind with no problem.
Looks like he is also enjoying the day much differently from how we had but isn’t that what life is about, doing things you enjoy.
See what I mean about a brisk wind, man and I thought racing cars years ago was a RUSH
He and his buddy just jumped out of their cars, suited up, dragged their gear to the edge of the marsh and took off ! They must do this in a lot of places maybe safer than here .lol
We are along a very busy coastal route in NH.
Then the ride ends and thankfully on a cold and raw windy day.
In the middle of the ROADWAY!
I had my photos of this day safely on my SD Card and they were safe and would now pack up to maybe go for a beer and talk about the AIR they had Grabbed!
You just never know what you will find, during the course of a regular, plain old day .
Hope you enjoyed our day too
She Loves being in mid-air, I am the one with her toy so after I toss it I quickly bring the camera up and try to capture her catches we work good together
I always let her have her rest.
I am sure you can tell she is loved and cared for.
Yesterday we took her for a long ride, in the new truck.
We timed it so we could hit a local beach that would allow her to play, as long as she was on a leash, I must remember to buy one of those long leads. I had her leash that goes out and winds back up but it was so hard to play in the surf with her on it. I was afraid I would be brought down by her doing her BC moves, All was good she was so happy and so many made comments about what a joy it was to watch such a happy dog. That she is ,as long as she is with us and PLAYING ,lol. Thanks for checking out my photos of her.
