It's A Big World Out There!

This is one of the little guys I prayed for and was brought to me this particular day.  I saw him a little earlier, but I had to let him go so I could show a group of kids the hummers fluttering in the garden.  Later, I prayed again and asked the Lord to help me find him.  The frog did not know he was going to be in my photo shoot. 

I love this shot of him in the middle of the bark; he seems so small immersed in the huge world around him.

Are You Really Kidding Me?

The elusive male Ruby-throated hummingbird has tormented me by not letting me photograph him.  Rarely do I get to see him, let alone see him feeding on a flower.  Last year, I did not see one at all.

It has been a quest for me to photograph him at The State Botanical Garden of Georgia, and I got very excited when I spotted one yesterday.  Camera and tripod ready.....I waited and found a place on a tree where he likes to perch.

Then out of nowhere, he landed FIFTEEN feet away on a tree!  I took a lot of photos and after he flew away I said, "Are you really kidding me?"  I had again prayed before I set out that day and asked the Lord to show me or bring to me what He wanted me to photograph.  I was totally amazed at the answered prayer!  But no one told the hummer not to sit in direct sunlight while I photographed him!

I Get It

As I was photographing an egret on the beach, I noticed the egret was very close to a few people and not flying away.  After observing awhile longer, I said, "I get it."


A father and son had a cast net, and the son was trying to catch fish.  The egret was waiting patiently in hopes of getting an easy meal.  I introduced myself to Anthony, Gavin's father, and I told Gavin to toss the egret a fish.
 

  The egret would cautiously creep up and get the fish because Gavin was standing very close.


I had a delightful time watching this story unfold before my eyes.  The egret was happy because he enjoyed an effortless breakfast, and you can see the smile on Gavin's face:)

I love the "feel" of this photograph.  The petals look at soft as silk.

I was so excited to watch these Roseate Spoonbills flying in to met the Wood Storks.  It looked like Bird Heaven, but I thought I was in Heaven:)

This driftwood is usually dressed up with holiday decorations.  It is eclectic and has various items on it this particluar holiday.  I found a fishing bobber, hat, necklaces, wreath, and flags.  I don't know how the tradition got started, but it is interesting nonetheless.

HAPPY 4th!
