I Heart Macro 11-6-11

Lonely little pinecone on the end of a branch
I was within 2 feet of this Mourning Dove.
Some flowers in surprising condition for November.

Nuthatch so close I could almost touch him!
Fungus
Moss on a down tree

This week was a pretty busy week for me. My hubby was out of town deer-hunting all week, so I took advantage of it and spent a lot of time outside. We had some gorgeous weather for November, upper 50's to low 60's and a lot of sun. Kim (Jumbled Hutch) and I got together a few times during the week for coffee and breakfast/lunch followed by some time with nature. We always have the best time and share wonderment with our discoveries. It is so nice to have so much in common with someone, from art to nature. Both my girls and my grandbabies get in on the fun as well. The little ones have such a good time outside. Kileigh has really gotten in to photography as well. I will have to post a couple of her pictures one of these weeks. She has a great eye for 3!

Tracey, you take amazing photos. I can hardly believe how close you were able to get to the birds without spooking them.

Love the lonely pine cone shot, and the morning dove is great. One of my favorite birds.My 9-year-old is getting into photography too...it is really rewarding to see loved ones get into an art form as a result of your own work isn't it?
Cheers,
Leah
