I’ve been working hard on cleaning up my yard around the house all week. I am seeing a lot of plants poking up from the ground in all of my gardens, but in the middle of the lawn these beautiful blue crocus flowers bloom every spring. They must have been dropped there somewhere along the years by a bird or something, because they are no where near a garden, just sitting out in the middle of the lawn. I thought they were so pretty today, in full bloom and all, and I snapped this quick picture with my cell phone….I think the photo came out spectacular for a cell phone pic! This was taken pre-raking of the area, so you get the full natural effect of the leaves and a stick that needed to be picked up too. I actually left it and the area around it totally undisturbed, because it looked so beautiful in it’s natural setting.
So this is my photo of the day share with you.
There is a sort of “challenge” going around on WordPress right now where you post a photo a day for 5 days and write 5 stories/poems/paragraphs about the photo. I was inspired to join the challenge when I saw Cee’s Photography Blog and her post today of the sunset. She always has the best photography and photo type challenges on her blog, and it’s all quite inspiring to us amateur photographers.
I would like to see Butchcountry67 and Kris of Tangled Web both do this 5 day photo challenge too! 🙂 And anyone who is secretly wanting to also do the challenge is welcome to jump on board! I am going to actually take a fresh photo each day instead of using recycled or previously taken photos, but you can probably do it either way, use a photo you have that has an awesome story behind it or take a new photo of something you encounter during your day.
I’ve been seeing the Bald Eagles a LOT lately. I think they’e become my totem or something. They have evidently nested near the river between Maine and New Hampshire close to where I live. I travel that road every day and cross the river. Yesterday I saw one of them sitting on a stump IN the river fishing…He was just gorgeous and such a bright white head and tail, and such a HUGE bird. I would LOVE to get a photo of one or both of the Eagles, now THAT would be a great picture if I can get close enough. I tried yesterday, but I could only get on the bridge, and I only had my cell phone so the pictures didn’t come out very good. I will keep trying, over the summer I am bound to catch a good picture sometime!
