Aww Thanks.  Such a nice thing to say.    :)

You take some great shots yourself.  I haven't had much time to get out to take photos in a while.  When I do have time the gas prices have been holding me back.  >:(

Wow! Way cool. Carlos & I have tried to get photos of hummers but can never get them right. This is one we got down in Puerto Rico (not too sure which one of us took this one)-but not as good as yours.

Same here.  Its not unusual to see me snooping around bushes and plants looking for interesting critters. 

Here is a little bug that was so tiny that I could only see a dark speck but the camera was able to capture it beautifully.  Gotta love cameras!

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk116/s_nanette/IMG_3182.jpg

Here are a couple of my favorite butterfly pictures.  The first one was easy because it was obviously a newly hatched butterfly and remained on that plant for a good 30 minutes before flying away.  I took full advantage of it.  So did my daughter, she was out there snapping away with her camera also.

http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk116/s_nanette/IMG_0293.jpg

This tiny yellow butterfly was pure luck.  I was only able to snap two shots before it flew away.  The first was blurry but this one turned out sharp.

It does take good macro shots.  Just have to stay steady and avoid the wind.  ;)

I may have exaggerated with the speck thing.  I was about 2 or 3 cm.

Great shot of a Dragonfly.  They are not an easy subject.  I have only managed to capture one dragonfly on camera and it was its underside.  Not the prettiest.

What if it wanted to GET IN MY HOUSE!?!?!?  :o


To be clear I didn't kill it... at least I don't think I did...

1) I gentlely took the broom end of the broom and slowly "sweeped" it in the air to get as much of the cobweb and that big ass spider on it.

2) notice the height of the fence? its not that high- maybe 3 or four feet... so I extended the broom so the spidery end was as far from me as possible.

3. I swung the broom like you would if  you were playing lacrosse (jai aliai)... 

4. The house sits on a hill above the street
http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa235/snozberries44/Santa%20Barbara/DSCF0100.jpg

so I flung the spider over the fence and he landed in the street or near the bottom of the hill.... I think he probably survived the fall I don't really care.... as long he was away from my front door!  ;D

The stores sell Snap Dragons as annuals here, but they survive as perennials in my garden and in the front yard.  I've planned the middle of my garden with a butterfly bush,passion vine lupine and poppies,  The area to the left of there doesn't get enough sun for a full shade plant in winter according to the guidelines (6-10 hours).  I was going to try and plant some torch lily seeds.  They are full sun plants but their zone for winter is 5-9 summer 9-1( I'm 9).  The right of my garden is the fry cooking section and not quite sure what to do with it.

All this yapping in a photo thread and no picture.  I'll Probably take one as soon as I get the butterfly bush and passion vine in.

^ I'm not sure why , but the genus name is  Lupinus.  Might just be an American spelling thing.  My dad wanted to know if the seeds were okay to eat.  I got one site that said some are and another that said they are.  I found out that the leaves on the variety of amaranth I have can be boiled and eaten, but they're to colorful.

I have a few teddy bear sunflowers that are starting to bud.  I can't wait to see their blooms.  Of course, I will have my camera handy.

They are amaranths and they are tropical.  Most are annuals andl just have to find out how well they do in my garden.

Frank, your pic is great!  Taken from a bridge?  While driving?  I do the same thing!  I guess I may have been over this bridge before myself when I was much younger, because I have been to both Vancouver and Whistler! I tried to talk my Dad into letting me try Heli-skiing with my cousins that went with us, but I needed to learn to ski first.  ::)

Beautiful photos Paco and Cat.

You both have much more talent then I do in taking photos.  Everything I do comes out blurry.   ::)



Thanks. Yeah, you have to learn to keep your hands steady. You may not realize it but sometimes when you push the button to take the pic, you are actually pushing the camera down-thus making the pic blurry. Can't tell you how many times I have done this. Why not practice and see how it goes. (With digital cameras it is easy to practice.)

...and cheap Patty, so keep on shooting, cause it's a matter of trying, remember : "  practice makes perfect".

I'm not as good as Cat do, so take into account her tips and soon you will do some good pics, too.

Take my word for it Patty.

I'ml ooking foward to see them  ;)

I always love your photos Cat, your bee one is amazing!

My hubby tries to show me how to keep my hands steady.  He likens it to using a "Weaver stance" which apparently is how you are supposed to hold a handgun to keep it steady or more likely how you hold your body to keep from shaking unintenionily. 

I do take lots of photos and most come out blurry.  I used to be alot better (not blurry) when I was a young girl.  Somewhere along the line I've developed the shakes.  http://www.inthe00s.com/smile/04/errrr.gif  I've thought about investing in a tripod, but I think that would be a pain to set up and take down as many times as I use my camera.  I will keep practicing though.  As you said, it's cheap enough with a digital camera.

The bee photo was basically a happy accident. I was trying to get a photo of the bee ON the flower. When I snapped the pic, he was gone and I thought that I totally missed the shot-until I brought the photos up on the computer. I was dancing around when I saw that pic. One of my best (IMO).


A tripod is a GREAT tool. I have one (actually two-one here & one in PR-but the one here is much better). I can't tell you how many of my photos come out blurry which is why I will always take about 5 (or more) shots of the same thing-just in case some don't come out.

Those are nice (I clicked on the link).

It is funny because RIGHT NOW at this very minute, I am working on my Vermont slide show. I didn't want it to be too long but I just have too many pics.  :-\\  I have cut it down to 11:30 minutes (3 songs). I had to scrounge for that third song because there aren't a lot of Vermont songs out there.

Unfortunately, I haven't been taking too many pics of Nature-mainly of the kids. I have also been working on several slideshows. (Not just the one of Vermont that I mentioned but also one of PR & one of our last trip to PR). But, I have been itchin' to get out and start taking pics again. (I was just telling Carlos that yesterday.)

They taste like strawberries but you have to peel them and sometimes the seeds are a little weird to get stuck in teeth, but usually aren't a problem.  The peel is fuzzy which is a little odd.  As far as I know, they are always green (so they don't look ripe.)

Well Howard, since I ain't got any ask Seamermar thread as you got, try dreaming it up by yourself.
But take good care, cause pine tree has only a kind of nuts ( simple, pure, modest, chaste pine nut ).
Any other nuts you see on its trunk ...
it's only given birth by and in your crooked brain.  8-P


Actually I have no idea what's or home come those balls under branch. Maybe a bee stung its rage on the bark.
And you know bees make swell with rage even peaceful stillstand trees. ;)

Well spotted, Patty.  8) Yes, that is corn (or maize, for those not from US). Not meant for human consumption, but to feed the animals.

Anyway I'm looking at these pictures and one of them are of the type of Macaws I use to feed at Marine World When I was a kid.  The thought going through my head was is this the first time you guys stopped looking at how the evolving works  and instead at what has evolved?  That's great if they are.  Sorry, here's what the macaw

When I took the photo, it actually looked more "orangier" to me as I snapped the pic, but in the camera it was darker and reddish. I zoomed into the max when I took it, so perhaps I got the closer surroundings to the sun, which was reddish, instead of what appeared to be more "orange" from the naked eye. I didn't complain.

Some cameras do alter color. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with your photo-on the contrary. I know that there are photographers who purposely alter the color-and again, there it is nothing wrong with that. It is literary license. I'm just inquiring about the artistic technique.

Maybe this camera alters color? Could be. As I said earlier, when I took the photo, the sky was quite orange in and around the sun, orange like this one below (which is not my photo, I copied from the net to prove an example)

But when I zoomed in closer to the sun, mine turned out darker.  No rocket science on my end. Just 1 click. A 7-year-old could have taken the same pic I did. And if the sky is clear I might take a similar one tonight.

I often thought about it but haven't as of yet.

I don't know if you know the story of that. I was trying to get the bee ON the flower. After I took the shot, I noticed the bee was gone and I thought that I totally missed the shot-until I uploaded all the pics to the computer. I was so excited when I saw it. That is what Bob Ross would call a "happy accident."

Those are pretty, warped.  Hubby and I were commenting on all the colors in the sunset just last night.  Didn't have my camera with me though.  :(

Thanks.

I wasn't really prepared for the shot. We stopped on our way back from seeing our new grandson. We were in the middle of the Green Mountains and it was snowing. It was almost dark and we weren't too sure if was too dark or not. And I didn't have boots on-in fact, I had on shoes that were not meant for walking through the snow. There were others who were there before we were so there was a bit of a path so it wasn't too bad.

Here you can see the path a bit (I will have more shots of the path but I just haven't uploaded them yet).

Very nice photos nally (love the palm trees!), amjikloviet, warped (pretty snow in the tree), snoz (you make me jealous with your sunshiney day and ocean-y stuff.) Cat (love the waterfall), and Chris.

Lovely pictures all.

We were told we got 29cm, (almost 12 inches). Seems more like 10 inches to me though. I tried to drive today  ;D  My car got stuck going up a hill. I eventually got out of it but turned straight home. I'll try grocery shopping tomorrow.

We're all waiting to clear out some of the snow so we can at least do some of our errands and other things we have to do today. It's really piled up though. There is A LOT of snow.

I'm just so thrilled to have found something that grows for me.  It gets as hot as 11 for me in the summer and I'm at 9 the rest of the year.  December looses sunlight and it doesn't come back until February.  I'll have to see how these do, but they do say they'll go up to 11.

The 2nd photo is a close-up of the main observation deck, at about 1,130 feet high off the ground.

You can do it two ways. If you do it as an attachment, it can't be too big. If that is the way you are trying and it is not working, it usually means that the pic is too big and you have resize before uploading it.

Second method is to upload it to another site like Photobucket or Flickr. Then you right click on the photo and you click on "Copy image location." Then you come here and click on the icon that looks like a photo frame which will come out like {img}{/img} only instead of {} it will be []. (I can't show you the actually code because it won't appear.) You put your curser in the middle and hit paste.


I hope this makes sense.

That's right, it has to be uploaded to a site before it can be displayed online. I even upload pictures to my Facebook account and share them here afterwards (with their URLS between "img" tags).

Really? I thought EVERYONE lived in an igloo-like Warped does.  ;) :D ;D ;D ;D

What???? We used color film too!  I had no flash (who in Canada does, anyway) so we had to set 200 tuques on fire so you could see the damn thing. Now we are gonna freeze our ears off next time we go ice fishing.

Here's a photo I took of Toronto's City Hall.  Interesting shape of the building. It was opened it 1965. Must have been very "modern art" back then.

thanks

a little something pretty to start with.  These ones aren't in a shadow from one of the picket fences I put in so they may get too hot on me, but there more that are in the shade that should grow.  Asters, swamp milkweed, and a passion vine to be added.

Thank you for your kind words.

Yes, it is a bluejay but no I don't do professional photography. But, I have had some recognition for a few of my photos. One was used in the UN presentation:


http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2181/2469470878_7dc42b1a08.jpg


Another one was used here: http://stlouis.schmap.com/attractions/gateway_arch 

On the side, there are 255 photos of the Arch. Mine is the 4th.

I have thought about printing some out, framing them and selling them as a "Cat" Original. The question is, would people buy them and if so, how much?  :-\\

I'll remove the pic if it offends anyone... I was trying to go with the visual & emotional impact of how nothing but the photographer and the fir trees in the distance were alive and the expanse of the land...

Actually, when I first started seeing the ravens, I thought they were crows, too. I made a comment about "Look how big that crow is?" but I was corrected. Ravens are basically big crows.

Oh man. You wouldn't believe how many of them were out there at that time. They were turning our weed garden into a Payton Place. Those pics were only a fraction at how many were actually out there.

Weed garden is now gone and so are the Japanese beetles-which is a good thing.

Thanks everyone.



Are those squirrels pesky sometimes?



I don't find them pesky. We don't mind feeding the squirrels along with the birds as long as they save some for others. Last year we had a chipmunk who filled his cheeks, took it to his lair, came back, filled his cheeks, etc. etc. He drained the entire feeder!  Greedy little thing. >:( >:( >:(  Haven't seen him around. I do see this little red one (or it could be more than one-they all look alike to me lol) frequently. He just eats his fill and then leaves. We also have a few gray ones, too. They usually eat what falls on the ground.


This morning alone, I saw tons of birds. The goldfinch pair, a woodpecker, the nuthatch, a pigeon, sparrows, a blue jay, and a gray squirrel. That was only this morning. I am amazed as how many birds we get at our feeder. Before we moved, we were only a block away and we didn't get too many-some sparrows, chickadees, dark-eyed junkos, blue jays, hummers, and an occasional woodpecker and of course the gray squirrels-and that was it. 

Yesterday, I saw a hummer. We need to change their feeder. Unlike the other feeder that you refill when empty, the hummer feeder you have to change frequently because it gets yucky-moldy, and a lot of times the ants get in it. But we have a feeder that keeps the ants out. I am waiting for the opportunity to shot a hummer.

The feeder is on the north backside of the house-away from the road. I was in the kitchen taking the pic with the zoom through the window. We purposely didn't put screens on those windows for that reason. If we had screens, the pics would all look grainy. We just have to make sure that the windows are clean. lol. It is an area of the kitchen we call "Cat T.V." because the cats love watching the birds as much as we do.

Yesterday, I was thinking that we should take a drive for last night's show. Carlos didn't want to do that. About a half hour before the show started, he suggested that we venture WAY, WAY up. Yeah, we have a copula. What would be a better place for the viewing of the show? I was afraid that the house next door would be in the way. As you can see from these pics, it was not. We only stayed for the first half. But, I got a bunch of cool pics.

Seriously Cat, those are nice pictures. I could only see it at times because it was overcast most of the night.
The eclipse did peek through the clouds every once in awhile though.

So I just got back from a 3 day road trip where I drove out and explored the Sandhills region of Nebraska and took a bunch of pictures.  I bought a new digital camera for the trip and after finally uploading them I'm really happy with how they came out. I'll try not to blow this thread up too much but I'll go ahead and post a few:

The Niobrara River is a popular tourist destination for canoe and float trips, and there are a lot of outfitters along the river who rent out canoes and inner tubes.

I definitely want to go back there and do another float trip, the last time I did that was a good 15 years ago.

I think they are all very nice.


Word of advice: Why not only have a few pics per post. You can make as many posts you want. It is just when there are fewer pics, it is easier to for us to comment on them.  ;)

I agree with the above. :)

If you're not completely satisfied with the way your pictures have come out: there's a plethora of software available to enhance them. I think they all come with a "quick fix" option that tackles most of the problems (like slightly out-of-focus, or overexposed/underexposed pictures) at once. I use them all the time! ;)

Some more random German landscape from southern Lower Saxony which I photographed during a motorcycle ride today (the camera had issues so I had to remove the battery and "reset" it, that's why the date is off).
It's quite a few pictures and I don't want to spam new posts so I put them all in this one.
I sometimes could only stop at less than ideal places and the colors are a bit off again but I think it's tolerable.

I love all the pics. But, it would have been better if you only did a few in each post. And don't worry about spamming. As long as the pics meet the criteria of the thread, it is fine. Personally, I would limit about 4 or 5 pics to each post-or less. It just makes it easier.

There's a funny story behind the phone booth. When David Letterman would do his Top Ten lists he would say it came from the "Home Office" from some Midwestern town (he'd change it up every few years), and for several years the fictional Home Office was located in Wahoo, Nebraska.

To go along with the joke, the city of Wahoo installed that phone booth along with a large billboard that read, "Home Office of the Late Show with David Letterman."

The billboard is no longer there and the phone booth has fallen into a state of disrepair, so I sent that pic to David Letterman on Twitter letting him know about the current condition of the Home Office.  :D

When I was in California in 2001 we also came across a valley full of turbines. I don't recall where it was but it's likely the same place (was that near Palm Springs?). From what I remember from back then is that the US versions were a lot smaller than ours though (hey, finally we've got something bigger here!!! :D). Some of ours are well over 300ft tall (though I don't know how tall the ones in my pictures are but I would estimate them around 300 ft)

Yes, likely so. My grandparents lived near there, which is why we've passed through the area. But recently we've had to go out there at least once every week or two to clear out their home because they've both passed on. :\'(

Yeah, so we gotta go out there every week or two and clear out their home, and decide what to do with some of the items in there. In fact, my dad has plans to go out there this Wednesday; not sure if I'll be going with him or not.

Could be a great titmouse (what an "awesome" name that bird has in English...o_O).

It looks like a cedar waxwing.

We had a bunch of them in our trees last year. I couldn't figure out what they were at first and I TRIED to shoot them but they didn't want to be shot. These are a couple of the best shots I could get-and you can see not great.

it does look like a titmouse in that the black is both the over the eye and on the head.  I notice the body shape of this bird is like a robin.  Well looked in my little bird book.  says this bird eats insects and likes oil sunflower seeds.  This bird eats peanuts too! my kind of bird.  Don't know if this is it, seems to be more of a northern CA bird, but my little book is old.

Titmice have a crest like cardinals and cedar waxwings do. Chickadees do not have a crest.

^ true,but from my picture, I cant really if there is a crest or not.  I think it could be a  waxwing, but the picture in my book shows an orange spot on the wing, so I'm not sure.  I matched the wing pattern as best I can.

thanks  there seem to be a bunch of things that have seeded around here probably from all this rain.  There is one other interesting plant I haven't taken a picture of and where it gets more sun then my garden right now, it seems the plant has some purple flowers.  Glad I have some in a pot now, it should look good with the violas.  Another plant I didn't take a picture of must be some sort of dandilion.  Yellow flower and seeds to blow everywhere. The one in my garden a foot tall and the leafs have some light purple color to them.

the ladybugs like collecting pollen off the dandelions.  I haven't read that dandelions are their most favorate flowers to get pollen from, but this is probably the best they can find.  Now that I've looked up some plants they might like more for pollen and plants that aphids like, I can start a ladybug garden.

sometimes they just come out blury like that on my camera.  When I try taking pictures with the phone outside, all I see is a black screen.
I don't know what the blue one is and am guessing the red one might be an amaranth. 

Not sure what this is either

Yeah the little bit I've taken pictures of but the rest of the area is empty.  I'd have to by some things as tall as fences to shade the ground so the sun doesn't fry the roots of what I'd try to plant.

not sure  I really didn't plant them.  I put the bird of parodice plant in and  after a few days of wattering, the mushrooms just popped up.  If they were with the bird of parodice plants, you'd think you'd see it at the store.  I wonder if it's in the potting soil that we used to help condition the soil.

2 days ago a (by German standards) nasty storm went over northern Germany. Our local forest has taken a massive beating in some areas.

This is what it should look like, a dense forest where you can't see 50 yards far:

I hate to see damage like that. (I have seen photos of Puerto Rico after Maria.) 

I know this is going off topic a bit but we are TRYING to do our part. Our car gets about 40 mpg (don't know the conversion to liters per kilometer-Sorry). We have a heat exchange so we don't burn "dead dinosaurs" in our house. We were looking into putting solar panels on our house but it is not feasible because of our roof & neighbor's trees. I wish we could do more.

40mpg = 5.88l/100km or 17 km/l (I've programmed a little conversion chart for all sorts of EU/US units for myself when I started motorcycling and had to find out that the best site about my bike was an American one :)). That's pretty good. My remark about climate change wasn't solely directed at Americans as SUVs become more and more popular here too. 8-P

It was -4°C. So it was bearable and looks colder than it was.
We didn't walk that much anyway, you can actually see the roof of the car in the last picture. :-\\

Over here it's still winter but hopefully next week it will be spring. I caught this on Friday, not the best pic since the falling snow was obstructing.  :-https://i.imgur.com/m2ALZuJ.jpg

And this picture isn't exactly nature but that was the greatest snow extent this winter in my neighbourhood. It was in mid-February. After that it was melting faster than it could pile on. It was -16c (3f) when I took this pic :P (it's going to delete itself in 24 hours for privacy reasons - it would be helpful if you don't quote it  :-https://lut.im/WMCi3mch7J/QIvYGVoImgqtiwSG.jpg

Another evening stroll through the forest.
The little flowers I spotted last time are now pretty much everywhere on the forest ground.

At least when there are foliage trees around. Here is a patch with conifers and the flowers seem to avoid them:

I know I shouldn't have done it but I actually used my brain... The conifers create shadow so the flowers can't grow while the foliage trees are bare during winter/ early spring and therefore the flowers get enough light to grow under them and it only took me one day to figure that out. I'm such a genius. :D ;D

nice pictures, where were they taken? :)
At a location called Lengeder Teiche (Ponds of Lengede).

Those ponds were man made to supply a mine with water. I didn't take any pictures of the ponds as they are almost all silt up by now and walking around them is like walking through a tunnel of trees without much to be seen.
It's a historic ground though. There was a big mining accident there in 1963 as one of the ponds broke through into the tunnel system killing several miners and trapping others in an air bubble for two weeks.

My grandfather was on site back then to assist the rescue teams (he was a firefighter).

It's a historic ground though. There was a big mining accident there in 1963 as one of the ponds broke through into the tunnel system killing several miners and trapping others in an air bubble for two weeks.

My grandfather was on sight back then to assist the rescue teams (he was a firefighter).
Karma to your grandfather too, interesting about this sad occasion being the inspiration for the 1960s television series "Thunderbirds".

You're a one of a one
A one of a kind
That you only find once in a lifetime
Made to fit
Like a fingerprint
A code that clicks open a gold mine

The say one's man's trash is another man's treasure
If it was up to me I would keep you forever

'Cause I understand you, we see eye to eye
Like a double rainbow in the sky
And wherever you go, so will I
Because a double rainbow
Is hard to find~

;D

https://i.imgur.com/FcR0jFt.jpg

Really pretty!



I, too shot a couple of double rainbows in the last week.

This one, you can see the second rainbow very faintly on the upper left of the pic (right under the clouds).
https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1754/41597752055_5a3d284269.jpg

This one was shot through a window that was very wet. We TRIED to open the window but it wouldn't go and didn't want to go downstairs because by the time I did, the rainbows would probably be gone. Not one of my best pics.

I didn't even know about that. :o


My grandfather (and I believe everyone else involved in the rescue operations) got a medal for his service at Lengede which I kept after his death:

https://s6.postimg.cc/j4dxwpald/WP_20180601_22_38_22_Pro.jpg
The box reads: We thank you for your selfless help during the heavy mine disaster in Lengede 10.24. - 11.7.1963
Ilseder smeltery
Illegible signatures
(Americans will notice that we write dates differently than you do by going in the order of day - months - year but I used the US variant in the translation to avoid confusion).

The medal's front side reads:
Ilseder smeltery

Thanks for help (rendered) in Lengede.
https://s6.postimg.cc/3x2jq0ftd/WP_20180601_22_54_54_Pro.jpg

The rear side shows a drill head carving the rescue shaft and the date again.

Why restricting it for the majority of people just because a handful could get hardware problems? This is a bit like putting a speed limit of 20mph on interstates because there might still be someone with a Ford T model out there.

I took this one yesterday, shortly before noon pacific time:

https://scontent-lax3-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/36578854_10214801439303353_3207729112797937664_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=f91ec87aa5f63585cb698a121ecc364b&oe=5BAE5B95

Right after I took it, I uploaded it to Facebook... and six hours later, it was later shared on the TV news! (The weather lady who usually does the weather at that time invites viewers to share weather photos on her FB fanpage; she usually picks the best ones to share on the air.)

(Warning: because this picture is on FB, it has a big long URL, so it's only going to be temporary. Enjoy the pic while you can!)

And last night, I took another picture of the great outdoors; this was a sunset in northeastern Ventura, CA. I shared this one on Facebook last night, and the KTLA-5 meteorologist (whose fanpage I shared it on) shared it on the air during her 11pm broadcast!

I had to look it up, too because I didn't know, either. I also learned that those are female or non-mating males. I suspect it is a mama & her chicks who are almost old enough to go out on their own. The mating male had a black head.

It is! It was such a beautiful and serene location. We took the train from Llanberis station up to Snowdown Mountain, that's where I took the second pic. You're lucky that you've been several times. :P

Wales in general was just breathtaking. Those mountains up against the sea, and the hillside towns and the castles. It was definitely worth the trip. :)

We had a big temperature drop over the last two days. We went straight from summer to autumn and only had 5°C this morning.... 8-P

Anyway, this tree was nicely illuminated by the setting sun this evening.

Great photo.

I was trying a similar picture last night at sundown, but the colour did not come out right for me.

Thank you my friend!

I love 'em too, and I definitely think this was worth sharing. This is my 4th pic that was shared on the air!

It is really beautiful. Unfortunately at my home we don't have a clear view of the sunset, I wanted to take a snap of the red sunset today but didn't get the chance.  :-\\

Nice shot! O0

It was the same over here. Last Friday it was 32°C and I enjoyed lunch outside at a park sitting under a tree. Then later in the day a tornado came by and it was 7°C the next morning.  :-\\

We did have a few cool days earlier in the month though, so a few trees were fooled into thinking it was autumn. I think this was one such tree. I took this on the Saturday when the autumn weather just started, but this one looks like it was a casualty of the "fake autumn" from a few weeks ago.

This is another I took on the same day. I wasn't sure whether to share it because I think it will look way better in about two weeks time, but maybe I'll post that when it happens.  :-X

^^ Please do post a pic in a couple of weeks if you can. I bet that is going to be so pretty with fall foliage!

I don't have a clear view of it from my house (since my front window is east-facing), so I have to go outside to a certain vantage point to get a good shot.

Like I said in a previous post, the TV meteorologist who does the evening news at that time invites viewers to share their weather photos on the air, and she picks the best ones. No other local TV weather reporter has done that. And I sometimes get inspiration from other submitters whose pics get shown. (And believe me, there are plenty of "regular contributors", some who post almost every day.)
