About Me

This is a blog of my photos. Birds, bugs, lizards, frogs, turtles, snakes, & flowers. The camera strap is always around my neck to capture all the wonders of my Florida backyard!

After a week long rain in my Florida backyard, my brother and my niece and nephew traveled to Bermuda. At least the sun was shining in Bermuda and they were able to enjoy the beach. My brother sent me photos of a Kiskadee Flycatcher and a Jamaican Turquoise Anole he saw while he was there. They are both so pretty!!

Flowers in my garden

I took these photos in my garden and then changed them with my ipad Apps...fun! I used Photogene and Mobile Monet for these.


This hummingbird does not share well with others! The other hummingbirds have to get a drink quick before getting chased off.

Gigantic Butterfly!

I have never seen a butterfly this big before!

Baby Cardinal

This cutie was trying to escape from the garage today. I put on a glove and helped. He stuck around afterward just long enough for me to go get my camera and take a couple of photos.

Mad Mama & Flying Lessons

 Mama Bluebird was not happy with me laying in the hammock. Her eggs were hatching very soon and I was way too close to her house.

Here is one of her babies on flying day. He was not allowed back in the box, despite his effort to do so.

This Flycatcher took the fur I had tossed in the yard just after brushing our cat to build her nest!
