    Last Super Full Moon Of 2020: May Flower Moon

    While some may disagree if this is the last Super Full Moon of 2020, the May Flower Moon was big, bold, and beautiful! It’s name pretty much says it all. The flowers begin to bloom this time of the year in my area and they seem to be right on time! Here in Wisconsin, the Super May Flower moon peaked over the horizon in the southeast around 8:43 pm central time. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see much of the initial rise at the horizon of the last Super Full Moon of 2020. Only a very small section at the bottom was visible because there was a thick band of…

    Stay At Home Wisconsin: A Modern Ghost Town

    The order to stay at home in Wisconsin has turned my town into a modern ghost town. On Wednesday, March 25th, Wisconsin issued the “Safer At Home” order effective at 8 am through April 24th. We will see how far into the summer months this shall last. The photos that I’m sharing happened to be taken the day before the actual Safer At Home order was passed. It seems everyone had already begun sheltering themselves indoors. I have never seen our hustle bustle down town so quiet in all my years of living here. It’s definitely looking a bit like a modern day ghost town. Carry Out About the only…

    Spring is in the air and the turkeys are strutting their stuff. Like many areas around the country we have lots of turkeys. When it’s that time of the year for the males to start showing off their stuff for that special gal. Gobbler The male turkey or gobbler has a distinctive fleshy wattle or protuberance that hangs from the top of the beak ( called a snood). The length of the snood determines the male turkeys health. Female turkeys (hens) prefer males with long snoods. The snood length can also be used to predict the winner of a competition between males. So when spring is in the air the…

  • You are looking at a Lensball in front of a sheet of card stock with hearts all over it. The Lensball gives a nice artistic reflection of the hearts. The center heart is red, while the others around it are black. This is from my post, " Happy Valentine's Day: With a Lensball".

    Happy Valentine’s Day: With a Lensball

    Happy Valentine’s Day with a Lensball! What a fun way to say I love you from a photographer. Everyone has their own special way of celebrating Valentine’s Day, mine is a little different than most. I’m just not into all the commercial ways of spending the heart day. Don’t send me candy or flowers, those things just add unwanted calories and the beautiful flowers wither away. I prefer to get a new piece of camera gear (a Lensball in this case) or a Latte, or to just pamper myself a little extra that day. No matter how you like to enjoy the Day of Love, single or not, take some…
