I'm not a good photographer. I take tons of photos and most of them are just plain awful. Here are a couple I took of my cat Eddie I don't think are too bad. Got lucky I guess. The sun and shadows on his fur make them kinda interesting. He is a pretty boy and such a loving little guy.

these little rascals are usually hard to photograph, but this guy was on his/her nest in a bush right next to the sidewalk.

Ronoc, those are simply amazing. Ah, for the gift. Thanks very much for sharing.

And I love the tiny bird IP!

Good Job! I know how tiny and fidgety those vireos are!

i was gone for a week on business and was doing some work in the yard after i got home. i found a worm and i thought i would show my wife and maybe throw it on her. she came to the front door and after seeing the worm said, "oooohh, is it show and tell?! i'll be right back." this is what she came back with. apparently she doesn't get the vacuum out to clean the rugs often enough...

These are great (I love the peacocks!) and you've all inspired me to find out when the next classes start at the local Center for Photography. I am finally going to learn how to use my Sony DSLR.

He is gorgeous. He looks so happy and calm. These are wonderful photos.

That is a Comanche Skimmer - just in case you wanted your dragonfly identified. DH said the white stigma (the area at the outer leading edge of each wing) is a key mark.
