Cute as a button and so loving... Baby S.

I visited with Baby S. and her mom last week and (naturally) couldn't resist taking a few photos.

June 2009 Photo of the Month

The beautiful Miss E.

This guy crept up on me this morning...

I was working on the computer in my office when I sensed something to my right. I turned my head and there about five feet away from where I was sitting was this buck. Naturally, I keep my camera less than a foot away from me when in my office, but he was looking right at me, so any sudden move by me and he would be gone.

I very slowly made the move for my camera, but with a big heavy lens like my 70-200 f/2.8L he caught the movement and didn't take off, but started to walk away. My heart was beating pretty fast, because I've waited for him to come back since I got the grid-free windows in my office.

My choices, in a split second to mull it over were: grab the camera and have to fight with focusing as he took off, or opt for the slower movement and risk losing a great shot from the front. I chose the latter and here's the result.

Even with the sauntering steps he made, he was powerful! I once had five deer run past me in the yard and it sounded like a herd! He looks lanky, but he was quite large!

As he walked away, the thumping noise from his hooves was impressive!

My Beautiful Muse... Miss E.

Muse: The source of an artist's inspiration.

Her patience and willingness to work with me has made me a better photographer and for this I am so grateful!

Miss E is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. There are no boundaries for her, the sky is the limit and I look forward to seeing what life has in store for her.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The bobcat came around this morning

I was working in my office this morning and suddenly a bobcat jumps out of the bushes. I should have known something was up, since it was so quite outside my office window. When it's quiet like that; somethings up--either a coyote or bobcat are hovering nearby, or I see bunnies, chipmunks, voles, birds and squirrels--and none were out there, it was quiet; and now I know why.

A small sampling of my morning visitors

Below is a small sampling of the morning visitors I get right outside my office window--and I love it! I could do without the brown squirrels, because they are so aggressive, but they're entertaining too! (click photos to enlarge.)

And there's more...

Believe it or not, I have more, but will save them for another post.
