Default A couple of my recent pictures

My camera is a simple digital, these were taken hand held, I suffer from a
neurological condition which makes my hands tremble AND it was breezy but I
hoped to capture the rain on the petals of this volunteer poppy in my
asparagus patch.

The golden marjoram falls over the ceramic sink it's taken over and can be
seen from my kitchen window, it lights up the dreariest of days - and we've
had plenty of those recently.

Just to prove to Omelet that I do take pictures and I haven't pro
equipment - and I don't want any tips on enhancement from anyone but Padraig
or Marutchi!

You did not have to prove anything to me!
Now you have challenged me to pull the pics off my camera and post them.
;-) Gotta shrink them first and hope that spiderweb turns out.

In the meantime, attached is one of my favorites from last year that
never elicited any comments. During the Skipper swarm.

Oh, and the third is a lesson to myself, again I don't need anyone to point
out the glaring error which I should have seen. It was simply a record of a
window box on the side of Spouse's workshop, not meant for anyone else's
eyes, but I made the cardinal error of not looking for a reflection in the
window - thus the tartan wool hanging on the washing line and, if you look
carefully enough, me :-)

Probably all too big too ... they've already lost a lot by reducing the size

Pretty. I like the rain splashes!

The one problem I have right now is taking the camera from the AC in the
house to hot humid outdoors. Takes a bit for me to get it to stop

Missed a good cicada pic this morning. ;-( The bugger spooked.
Peace, Om
