Red-winged Blackbird

I saw this Red-winged Blackbird in a "marshy" area at the 
Izaak Walton Park in Christiansburg, Virginia

I like the way his tail fans out in this one :)

Squirrel Portraits

These little guys really seem to like to pose for me!


Saturday Dragons......Sort of

Well, not actually a dragon, but my first dragonfly
of 2008!
I think that means Spring is really here!!

He looks metallic green with light blue on his tail.
This is the same shot as above, I just rotated it to the right so you
could seem him horizontally. He actually landed vertically, as the
first shot shows. I was so excited that these shots turned out.
This guy was really TINY!
(click on the last pic to really makes a difference)
Happy Saturday Everyone!
PS - If anyone can identify this guy, please leave a comment! It would
be VERY much appreciated!!


Sunset Through The Branches

Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under!

We Remember - April 16th

One year ago today, the campus of Virginia Tech and
our small town of Blacksburg, Virginia was turned upside down.
Take time today to remember all of those that were lost....
and don't forget to say "I love you" to those special people in your lives.


A Glimpse Into Their Life

There is Just Something About Yellow

Yellow Wildflowers Make Me Happy :)

Sun on a Hazy August Evening 

There is JUST something about Yellow that puts me in a Good Mood!


Bird in a Bush

 Not to waste the spring I threw down everything, 
And ran into the open world 
To sing what I could sing... 
To dance what I could dance! 
And join with everyone! 
I wandered with a reckless heart beneath the newborn sun. 
— Roman Payne 



The Day is Done

Sunset from my front porch

My day is done, and I am like a boat drawn on the beach,  listening to the dance-music of the tide in the evening.
~ Rabindranath Tagore


Spring Daffodil

The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.

Tree Reflections

The original image - trees reflected in the pond 

Now it is rotated - and it looks like a a foggy tree pic.
But no, it is a reflection :) 


Fire in the Sky - Sunset

May I never miss a sunset or a rainbow because I am looking down.

A Visit to The Cascades
