Shuffle. The picture was taken in response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt last Monday but I didn’t get around to writing a post. Playing pinochle with my parents was more fun than blogging.

Upside Down Umbrella. It’s a picture from a few years ago that I didn’t use for one of Dutch Goes the Photo! Tuesday Photo Challenges. (Frank, if you see this, know that you are missed.)

Tulips. All kinds of colors – a departure from my usual “one flower” approach.

Morning Walk

My initial intent was simply to go for a walk this morning.  But I grabbed our Sony Cyber-shot camera as I headed out the door.  Two miles, 45 minutes, and 118 pictures later I made it back home.  About half the photos were deleted after being downloaded – a great bonus of digital photography.

More than once I wished I’d had my Canon EOS Rebel XTi.  Nevertheless the zoom feature on Sony means I have pictures of geese, ducks and a cardinal!

The ducklings had been following the adults but decided a swim would be easier than hopping over the rocks.  I was surprised to see I’d captured an adult male jumping in.

The cardinals are very vocal this time of year so they’re often heard even if not so often seen.
