One On The Fly

The last two days have been an absolute blur! I could give you a punch-by-punch account but I will give you just today’s activities in the Reader Digest condensed version: Up at the butt-crack of dawn and on the road for  run to see my great nice graduate, back to the old hometown to pick up The Brides new peepers and cell phone shop, Lunch, power nap, graduation celebration for a very cool young man I know and love, off to a second celebration for another graduate and finally home. After being gone a total of about fifteen hours today and driving about two-hundred miles I am amazed I remembered to capture a few picks of some fleabane I came upon. So here is one on  the fly.

A Couple Of Crazy Days

I have had two of the craziest days this weekend.  The Bride is in school again and I am her lab partner or ” slave monkey and photo bug” if you wish. The great thing of on-line schooling is that which is also the worst thing: Technology!  We are having issues to say the least…uh not us but with the techno-stuff.

I also have had a mechanical issue with my ride and found out today I will have to get the last little part, to finish the job, from the dealer. Oh, I also got a foreign object stuck in my eye.( I seem have a gift for this but it still stinks when it happens.) After flushing my eye for at least a half an hour, and what seems to have been divine intervention, I am object free in the eye department.I have never felt pain like that before and I am gratefully for the gift of sight.

So what to do in such a frenzied mess?   Share some captures I grabbed in between the madness!

I used my SX260 on Live mode for this hand held shot last night of the Supermoon.

The Fleabane are back and I am glad. I grabbed this shot as they were closing for the evening. I used my SP-350 for this one.

This is a Buttonbush bud and when they bloom they are a great asset to nature. I used my SP-350 on this shot as well.

I love Damselflies and this one is really cool. I used my Powershot Sx10is in this capture.

I have a FujiFilm S700 my dad gave me and I used that for this shot. I by the way love taking pictures of rusty things!

I took this last night using a tripod and my Powershot SX10is on full manual. I was having a issue with it being to beige and set the white balance on "florescent" and this is the result.

More Tiny Treasures

The Fleabane is flourishing on our place and that is fine with me. I can count on them to be available for a photo-op now until the end of July. I needed that availability today since I could not find the new place on our face as I hoped. So I went took a few shots of my ever faithful Fleabane. So here is a Fleabane And A Long-Horned Grasshopper Nymph.
