:: Perspective::

From this view everything still looks pretty green and full... I took this picture with my *new to me* FujiFilm camera I bought from the pawn shop in June. 

I like it...because it shows the depth of our property...right up to the abandoned house and shared property line ...with their pile of rubbish and broken down boat. 


It's funny how a picture can show something that looks so pretty but if you look closely... you might get a different idea of what's going on there. 

I call this one 
"Shadow or Stopping Point?"

It's both. 

Which reminds me... I need to finish painting. 

I'm trying to get a good picture of the hummingbirds that are coming up on my porch... 

I call this pair... 

"Luring a Hummingbird and


Catching Flies" 

*notice the fly strip

"Tiny Things" 


1 inch long Praying Mantis 



Humming bird...and that little blip on the right?  GRASSHOPPER on a power line. 

This is how I feel about grasshoppers... 


"GrassHOPPERS!!!!"

And the last one

appropriately named...

"Birdbath"

And that is a trip around my yard in pictures. 



And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we will reap, if we faint not.~Galatians 6:9

fun pics! I was taking some pics in the kitchen tonight... a project I'm working on. It was very difficult to get a picture without all the mess in the background.

I see the grasshoppers are still there.

Grasshoppers are trying to take us over as well. I saw them all over the south side of the house today. And when I walk down the fence row, they hop in front of me by the hundreds. I think they have almost done away with my one rose bush. Anyway,I enjoyed your tour. :)

Fun photos! Love the chicken "spa." And a grasshopper way up on a powerline? Never saw that before!

I hate grasshoppers, they creep me out! I do like the praying mantis though. We had a mama and all her teeny tiny babies were following her in a line as they walked across the deck rail. So cute.

Thanks for taking us around your yard. That camera is coming in handy and you are getting some great shots. Love seeing the hummingbird in action!
