Monday's photo of the week

I didn't get out to take as many photos as usual this week. Mostly all the same thing... birds. I've been a birdwatcher for many years and a nature photographer for almost as long. I love all nature, especially bugs. On my flickr you will see snakes, spiders, bugs, birds, and, well, anything that moves. I have sold many of my dragonfly photos and a few others. What a thrill when someone appreciates something you have done. Since we moved back to Florida I haven't been out as much as I was in Georgia. I will though as soon as it warms up.

Here is a baby quilt I'm making for my granddaughter, Anna Grace, who will be born in April. I can't wait to get it finished.

Here is the Painted Bunting again. Such a pretty bird. I hope he stays around for a while more. Sure wish I could get a decent photo before he leaves.

Pinkie is bored.

Star jasmine outside my bathroom window.

I'm not sure which post this is but it's close to 100. I'm going to have a give away but I'm not sure what yet. Probably a doll. If you are interested keep an eye out for the post. It won't be long now.
Edit: this is post 97. OH!! I forgot. Look what I won from Vickie! I'm so excited. It's so much fun to win things!

Congratulations of winning! Lucky you!

I love your braid quilt. I have been eyeing that pattern but I been brave enough to tackle it.

Your jasmine is lovely, as is your quilt. I'm sure Gracie will love it.

That quilt is going to be so special -- congratulations on the coming grandbaby! I have never seen a painted bunting before - I would say that you already have a decent photo of him. It doesn't seem that our birds here in Oregon are anywhere near as colorful. He's a showstopper!

Congratulations on your win....that knitted heart dishcloth look way too pretty to use.

Gorgeous Painted Bunting...
I must check out your Flickr album one day soon as I love nature pics!

The star jasmine looks so pretty!

The quilt is looking beautiful...a lot of work and effort. Well done!

Poor Pinkie....I'm sure her boredom didn't last too long though. :)

Congrats in your win and on your soon to arrive new grand!

Bet your kitty wouldn't have been bored if he had seen the bird! LOL!
