Sum-a-dis-n-sum-a-dat!

I am soooo bored! I can't find anything to photograph, as I am sure most of you feel the same. It's that time of year where everything is hiding among the overgrown everything.

Anyway, here are a few things that are at least something that triggered my shutter.



I happened to catch mom nurturing her young one. My lens was a bit too close, but who's complaining?








A curious Doe backlit in the evening sun.









Infestation!








A painted Prairie








The squirrel who keeps stealing the heads off of my sunflowers and eating them on top of my selfmade Owlbox. The quality of the box has been compromised by the squirrel over the years, and has never contained an owl. I wonder why, as I mumble grumble at that freekin squirrel...

I wish my "I can't find anything to photograph" photos looked half as good as yours. My favorite is the painted prarie.

Soon there will be amazing things out there for all of us to photograph and in the meantime you've done an excellent job of showing us some beautiful common animals! I always love the deer and that squirrel is cute up there with your stolen sunflower!! But the orange bugs??? I clicked on them and was taken by a chill imagining those things crawling on me!! Yikes..A little bigger than life that lens of yours produces. haha

Hannabel,
How I love your creative ploy to hide that box on the tree..very cool..Too bad the owls haven't tried it! Maybe this year!
Very nice pictures..esp the wild flower scene and of course the mama and her little one!
Yes, finding good subject matter right now is a challenge but I think you did quite well...here. Now, about those bugs!!

Similar feelings on this side of the pond! Despite your fears you still managed to provide us with exceptional images, especially the backlit Doe. Cheers FAB.
