Day 261/365

Day 261- Swamp Fun
Spent the weekend away from civilization/technology and enjoyed the quiet of the swamp life! Though... some of the birds and feral cats weren't that quiet... and neither were my wild Kids! The Kids didn't really pose for me during the weekend. Oh well. I got a few "princess" shots of The Girl, but The Boy kind of avoided the camera... hmpf! =P

I always enjoy the birds! Not 100%, but I think these are gulls.
Random shells on the docks. Perfect decor!
Even random rope piles look beautiful!
Found these barnacles on a recently pulled pylon.
BIRDS! Lots of birds! Most are too small and fast for me to capture... one day I'll get them!! =)
AND finally there were butterflies... pretty butterflies!
Monarchs included!!

All in all... this shows our good start to a BEAUTIFUL weekend!

Looks like a very pleasant change to everyday life. You caught some nice macros and details as well as the broad sweep.

Just discovered you chose my entry in the top three in last week's LEM challenge. Thank you, I'm pleased you enjoyed my photo. It must be really hard to have to judge from so many entries.
