In addition to reading, taking photographs of the wildlife is a way I refill my muse.  I look forward to summer and taking photos of flowers and newborn animals and birds.

One of my favorite things to see are the turtles.  Locally, I’ve seen diamondback terrapins, snapping turtles, and box turtles.

It’s wonderful seeing fawns with their mothers; truly, a special moment.

Hummingbirds are interesting to watch.  They’re extremely territorial, and I’ve seen them confront numerous birds, and even squirrels.

Dragonflies are beautiful, and they have such a wide assortment of colors.  So far, I’ve seen green, blue, yellow, orange, gold, brown, and red dragonflies.

One of my favorite flowers is the coneflower.  Not only is it beautiful to photograph, but coneflowers make a stunning backdrop in photographs for bees, hummingbirds, and the other wildlife they attract.  Enjoy your summer and the beauty of nature around you.

    ~Sounds like you’re in a location with a lot of wildlife. Not sure of what experience you have with a camera, but I use a Canon PowerShot SX60HS. For a point and shoot, I’m continually amazed at the quality of photos it takes. *The upgrade, SX70HS, is now out. Take care, and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

    The photos brightened my day. I love the hummingbird. I have five kinds that use my feeder, but have never seen one like this one because it’s not native. Thank you for sharing.
