Today I took pictures in the morning while The Girl rode her tricycle... in her dress-up wedding veil... with her wonderfully clashing clothes on!! How wonderful is that?!
We spent MOST of the day outside today since it was BEAUTIFUL! This morning we needed jackets, by lunch time we were in t-shirts, and by late afternoon we could've worn shorts. LOVELY! Anyway, I just had to share The Girl's morning adventures. She went bike riding and butterfly hunting. I wasn't going to share any other pictures besides those... I promise! BUT then I ran into this guy...
AND how could I not share him too?! He let me get SO CLOSE (I'm used my 55-250 mm lens, but I wasn't extended all the way... I forgot to check what it was set at)! I love the details I was able to capture. What's amazing? I had The Kids with me. Crazy bird.
When I was finally getting ready to leave, he started diving for food. I was caught off guard since I was chatting with a neighbor (yes, this guy was visiting the neighborhood)... so this feeding/drying off sequence is a little blurry. But you get the point. Very cool!
AND... this might be my favorite color-wise. I think the sun was in the right position... this is SOOC. He's a little further from me in this shot, but I like it! So... all in all... I had a great picture day today! It helps that the weather took a rain break!!! Tomorrow should be good too I think! =D
