    June Strawberry Full Moon 2019

    The June Strawberry Full Moon 2019, rose from the 16th through 17th, what a beautiful sight it was! How fun to have the beginning of the Full Moon land on Fathers Day. I would say it was a special tribute to all the dads out there. Sunday Fathers Day Moon The photo above was taken Sunday June 16th around 8:30 pm, central time. The June Strawberry 2019 Full Moon was in the Waxing Gibbous 99.6% phase, near full. There happened to be a band of clouds along the base of the horizon, so I wasn’t able fully catch it coming up. Nonetheless, it was a beautiful sight! The the sky…

    Red Fox Pups, cups or kits

    Red Fox Pups, also known as cups or kits. Three of them in fact, with the mom not to far off. I happened to be taking a walk this afternoon and noticed an adult fox on the road side. As I walked closer she stopped and looked at me for quite sometime. She then ran off into the near by woods. I didn’t think to much about it, but was very happy to have seen her. As I walked along down the road getting closer to the area she had been standing, I noticed some movement in the bushes. I stopped and looked through my camera and zoomed in. To…

    Mays Moon: Waxing Crescent 12.2% If you look to the right of the moon. You’ll notice a faint white dot, that dot is Mars. That far off planet just happened to be bright enough, to be photographed with the moon Tuesday night. It’s been two months since I’ve seen the moon. It’s either been to cloudy, rainy or I was to busy. So it was nice to get to see my favorite photography subjects. The Mays Moon has several names.

    Birds of a Feather Who Flock Together

    Birds of a feather who flock together. Early spring is one of my favorite times of the year to watch and photograph the migrating birds. There are over 230 species of birds that migrate here every year. Many of them stop by at a corn field just up the hill from my property. This is where I spend hours watching and photographing these amazing birds. We are often visited by sandhill cranes, crows, ducks, geese, turkeys, and great blue herons. Sadly, they will move on to their nesting grounds in a few weeks and the fields will become empty. Rightfully so, as the farmers will need their fields back to…

    Beautiful blooms during winter

    Beautiful blooms during winter, what an extra special surprise! Even more special, because it has bloomed near my birthday. What a wonderful way to brighten up those dark dreary, cloudy, winter days. A sweet little reminder, that spring is on it’s way. Nothing more lovely than given the gift of your long-awaited plants, to burst open in gorgeous spring colors. My dad gifted me this very large looking lilly plant two years ago. He said it is a direct descendant from my Great Grandmothers plant. How amazing is that! How many people do you know, who have actual living plants from past generations. One day I will be dividing it…
