Nature Nearby...

So far this week, I've been staying closer to home during the day. On Tuesday, after Memorial Day weekend I drove to Port A and walked, and enjoyed the day 'til it got too hot for me. I took photos of birds, of course, and ships on the channel. Also I was able to capture some dolphins in the channel guiding the cargo ship out to sea.  Those photos are not off the camera card yet, so it'll be a few days before I get them posted. Wednesday, I cleaned house and did a long time coming job...dusting and waxing furniture and window sills.  Thursday, we stayed home throughout the day; I mowed and  Bud edged the yards.  So, for this post I just picked random photos from my monthly folders of the more general of nature's finest to share...


Sunrise at the Audubon Sanctuary [same day, different locale]


Water Lily at the Wetlands


Park Trail


Tree fungus...I thought it was beautiful!


Mexican Bird of Paradise in our back yard --with a wasp.  I hate wasps.  Got stung by one as a kid [when I was five and I can remember it like it was yesterday], and for two days vomited green slime---bet you really didn't wanna know that, did you?


White Tailed deer at the Seashore


Wildflower along Pollywog Pond Trail

Nature Friday


...and PS, Andrea, if you're here [and didn't read my response to your comment on my post of musicals Cats], I just wanted to tell you that your words 'sounded' like Bud so much.  Yet, he'd take his hatred of musicals one step further...I won't reiterate tho.  But it really made me laugh, out loud, literally!

    1. Lol...dusting is not something I like doing. The last time I waxed was just after Christmas. Seriously.

  3. *LOL* Now I don't feel so alone, knowing that Bud is in the anti-musical trench with me. Sometime, when you two are sitting by yourselves & it's kind of quiet, start humming "Singing in the Rain" to him... and tell him it's a tune from his buddy, Andrea. *haha* :-)

  5. I hate wasps also, one dropped down the back of my dress when i was 15, just outside of the door to our church, mother rushed me in a SS room and i jerked my dress over my head and she beat it off, it stung me several times. i hate all sting bugs.. most of all the wasp. the flower the wasp is on, we had 3 bushes of them and the drought killed them and I had mailed off all the seeds a few years ago.
    all your photos are gorgesous and i am picking that stunning piece of art, the fungus as my favorite today

  14. These are all just glorious, and really showcase your talent at photography! The sunrise is wonderful, it even shows the different levels of heat. I am starting to feel hot! and the fungus is very pretty and fancy. Your Bird Of Paradise is gorgeous, but I hate wasps. I hope you were using a very long zoom!

  17. These are beautiful sunrise photos. And that deer! I have always thought it's a gift to see a deer. You know, I'm a morning person, and I often see the sunrises more than the sunsets. This one is surely pretty. That looks like a black-eyed Susan at the end.

    Have a lovely Sunday and thank you for stopping by on my china cabinet post. It's been a treasure of mine for many years. Can't seem to part with it. : )
