Flickr changed formats recently and wiped out all my photos. a friend wanted to see some, and the most convenient way was to upload some from an existing folder that had the cropped versions i use on my greeting cards. i spent a bit of time digging through more folders this morning, and uploaded more.
This should be the link to the birds and critters; this one should take you to a few flowers, butterflies and bees I grabbed, both of which have been rare enough the past few summers, tragically. there’s a way to rearrange them, but i haven’t found it yet. ;) a couple I should doctor; in the light boxes they need some exposure tweaking. anyway… I love birrrds. And critters. And flowers and butterflies and bees.
We homesteaded our place, and planted over two hundred trees and shrubs that would be a bit of a wildlife preserve for critters. These photos are from the several acres around our house, as in: front and back yards. To say we are blessed would be putting it mildly, but a whole lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this place. Built our own passive solar 12-sided hogan, to boot. ;)
