It's been a while since I posted anything. The camera's been sitting idle too long, so I decided to see what I could find in the yard. Not much, but a few I thought I'd post for comments, critiques, etc.

#1 - A Fly. I think I have more pictures of flies than I do of my family.

#2 - A Hopper or Cricket of some sort. Don't see this type much, and he didn't stay in one place long.

#3 - Bird poop disguised as a caterpillar... or the other way around.
I think it's a giant swallowtail caterpillar. They love my citrus trees!

#4 - A Crepemyrtle seed pod. I saw it sitting like this on the patio and thought it looked neat. I told you I was bored!

#5 - She who will not be ignored. She completely ignores me until I get down on the ground to photograph something. THEN she rubs up on me and the camera. (I know the picture is crooked, but for some reason I like it better that way)

You may have been bored, but those are some very nice photos of everyday things. Like you, I have to really look to find something to shoot. I do have the doves, cardinals, sparrows, hummers, etc., but I definitely have more photos of the birds than family.

For a "bored" man you've done a nice job. Nothing "boring" about your photography!

Jerry, Emmanuel & Donna -
Thanks for viewing and the nice comments.

Until I get off my butt and take the camera somewhere scenic, these types of shots will keep me busy enough. It's also good practice for when that bald eagle lands on my back fence, or a bigfoot scurries across my lawn.

It could happen!

Very good shots one and all but I must admit to enjoying the bird poo/caterpillar more than I most likely should.[img]images/emoticons/laughing-smiley-002.gif[/img]
Just something about animals that mimic other things and critters that I find to offer a lesson seen and missed often.Great shooting.
