This year was a bit different since, I hardly took any photographs of insects! In the past, my camera is pointed at lots of the six-legged creatures, but this year in Connecticut the focus was on plants, fungi, amphibians and summer campers. I guess that is what happens when you are in a cooler climate instead of hot Austin.
Here are my favorite photos from 2014! Happy New Year, Everybody! I hope this is a great one for you all! It's so hard to choose only a few pictures, but here are 14 for you to enjoy.
Amphibians- very orange wood frog, and a red-back salamander guarding eggs.
|Tiny brown mushrooms photographed in a way that they look big.|
|A sunset colored amanita mushroom|
with the tiny brown mushrooms to the left
|The tastiest mushroom found in our yard, chicken-of-the-woods|
|A very New England view with birch tree, mushrooms, and woodpecker holes.|
Snow-scapes- I had many more snow pictures from last winter, but I chose these two because I love how the sunset colored the snow and cast long shadows across the white and blue ground.
A few more favorites!
|Jacob at the coast|
|Summer campers with Secret Oak, I love this picture. |
The kids lined up on the tree as you see them.
This group was the first and most challenging of the entire summer!
|I love the colors and action in this picture. |
Cici's jumped into several of my pictures this year.
She is much more photogenic than my other two dogs.
