Happy New Year!!


Happy New Year!!

Most people are probably happy to see the end of 2020, and I am one of them.  We left home in early February to spend a month in Florida, then take a transatlantic cruise to Barcelona, Spain where we planned to stay a few days before heading to Lisbon and spending a couple of weeks in Portugal.  It was a great trip that we had planned for nearly a year.  However, with the spread of the coronavirus in February, especially on cruise ships, we were too stressed out to go on the trip.  We cancelled everything and headed home in early March and except for a few trips for groceries, medications and haircuts, we haven't been out much at all.  

Hopefully, 2021 will see the world vaccinated and life can get back to normal!

American Robins










American Robins

It is interesting that I don't have a lot of photos of American robins because they are very common around here all summer long.  They are very skittish and tend to fly away as soon as I have a camera in hand.  I think they are OK as long as you are not observing them from a fairly close range.  To get the photos I am sharing today, I lay on the ground and stayed still until a couple of robins got used to me and I was able to get a few shots.

Miles Cove









Miles Cove

Miles Cove is a tiny community in Green Bay and the photos I am sharing today were taken during a trip in 2003.  It was a beautiful summer evening as we drove through the town.  Since I only took a dozen photos, I assume that it was a very tiny place.

I will create an album later.

Honeybees









Honeybees

Believe it or not, the first time I saw a honeybee was in Florida.  Recently, I have photographed a few in Holyrood near Woodford's Station/Skibbereen.  I have a couple of Honeybees Albums and 99% of the photos were taken at Mike's U-Pick in Bonita Springs.  The photos I am sharing today were taken in Bonita Terra, located next to the farm.

Partridgeberries










Partridgeberries

This morning, I landed on my Partridgeberries folder and, even though it isn't the right season, I decided to share anyway.  To be honest, it is a very warm day here on the island of Newfoundland - 12°C at 6:00 AM. It is warmer here than in Bonita Terra this morning.  Highly unusual!

Snowy Egrets










Snowy Egrets

Today, I have returned to my Random Photo of the Day, and I landed on my Snowy Egrets folder.  

I was driving along in my golf cart in Bonita Terra (formerly Citrus Park) when I spotted a white bird on a fence post.  I slowed down and was excited to see that it was a snowy egret, but I was disappointed that it was standing on top of the fence.  However, when I zoomed in and noticed the dark background, I was excited.  And, birds don't seem to notice me as much if they are preening.  I was able to get a few beautiful shots before it flew off!

Merry Christmas!

For the past 10+ years, I have been sharing photos of Nativity Scenes from around the world and I always end up with this image for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  The artist, by having Santa show reverence to a Nativity Scene, wanted to show the real meaning behind Christmas.
