This week has kicked my butt. I've been sick, hubby has been sick and was out of town. Steroids, steroids, antibiotics, more steroids and a cough suppressant has consumed my life. Still not feeling close to 100%, but having kids keeps me alive and kicking and off the couch for most of the day. So, we got out a lot for their sanity, not sure if it was the right decision, but I at least got a few great photos.
April 17 - The Texas flag blowing in the wind.
April 18 - A yellow-crowned night heron hanging in a tree. The kids and I actually saw a pair of them. One was hanging out with freshly hatched chicks on a nest. The other one was flashing me a peace sign.
April 19 - I found a lady bug and decided to place it in the butterfly weed at Maben's school in hopes he would have a nice meal. All those little yellow dots are bugs...ewww!
April 20 - I have quite a few blue jays that frequent my back yard and have been trying hard to get a photo of one. They are very flighty and don't stick around long, which is disappointing because I think they are beautiful.
April 21 - The boys and I went for a walk after dinner at a new park that is still being built, but part of it is open. There is a walking/jogging trail around a pond and this great blue heron was hanging out. I can't believe I even got this photo. I was shooting into a sunset with the light bouncing off the water and managed to get some detail in the heron. Just awesome! I love experimenting with my camera.
April 22 - My hydrangea is starting to bloom! This is one of my favorite flowers.
April 23 - This is my very snuggly dog, Animal. He is definitely a lover and he totally thinks he is a lap dog. He is far too big for that, but how do you tell those eyes no?
