A couple of years ago, I caught a cicada coming out of his shell. They even posted my pic on a local, news stand. I'm not sure where that picture is, but if I find it, I'll add it. I also have a picture of fireworks my brother was setting off one year. The picture was so cool I framed it with two others. I don't know where the files are now, but I'll put a picture of the framed piece and you'll be an idea how cool it was.

The top spiral fireworks was amazing. Not sure how my camera did that, except the setting was for fireworks. I just kept snapping hoping to capture something and I did.

Kathy, those are beautiful shots ad I'm so glad you can revisit the fireworks daily by looking at your wall.

Thank you. I have hundreds of hummingbirds here at a time, so pretty easy to catch them resting.

Cool fireworks pics! Do you set continuous mode and a tripod for them, I've never had luck with fireworks!

I love hummingbirds, we haven't seen too many around here the last few years.

Just curious if a video will come through. Done this one in my yard around September I think. I live in the area of last stops for the hummers as they fly to Central America for the winter, so our town is big on feeding them, and celebrating them.

I don't have to train them. they love my yard, as everything planted in it, is geared toward them and butterflies. The hummingbirds pay no attention to me out there. They are used to me being out there.

Very nice Kathy. We had a few patches of clear sky early in the morning and then suddenly, around 9:30 the skies were totally clear and we had beautiful sunshine. So welcome in February after a really dull and cloudy January.

Wow! Y'all have some AWESOME pics here! I haven't been by in awhile & I've missed seeing them until now. I had to run to the store just about sunset on Friday & we had the prettiest sunset. Had to take it quick at the stop sign using my cell phone..so it is what it is, lol. On the way back, the full moon was huge & surrounded by a misty haze. The pic of it isn't near as good as it was IRL.

Just got back from a short walk. The building is a one room schoolhouse that was also used as a Mennonite church. The owners have fixed it up for family reunions and picnics. The animals are from an Amish farm.

Kathy, all your photos are great! The sunsets have been gorgeous the past few days, and you really got a good picture.We still have a few one room schoolhouses (currently in use) in these parts. Lots of Mennonites within a short driving distance. That foal sticking his head out of the barn window is so cute.

A couple of photos I took last month on our vacation from Texas to New Mexico. The first one was en-route, at (you guessed it) Camel Mountain. The next two are taken from our cabin at the Taos Ski Resort. A sunset and an afternoon photo when the temperature was 66 F degrees and I opted not to ski because of the soft snow and warm temps.

A couple more:A magpie in Arroyo Seco, a small village about 5 miles from the ski resort (notice no snow)
A beaver dam, only 2 miles from the ski resort, also, no snow
The front of our cabin. Notice how deep the snow was! BTW, those are my son and his fiancee.

Lovely photos Ina, just been reading Barbara grays blog, she is there at the moment.

The first photo looks like our sandstone rocks near the beach, I will have to take a photo to show you, shame I didn't see these before as we've just been there today for lunch.

Jan, does Barbara gray still do videos? I used to watch her videos on YouTube but she quit doing them, or at least I hadn't seen aypny updates lately.

How lovely to see! I find the beaver's dam one fascinating. I also didn't realise that I need to add magpies to the list of birds that are different in North America to here!

Sabrina, we don't have magpies in our area either. Apparently there are a number of varieties of magpie, and the ones we saw in New Mexico, are not common in Texas either, at least not near Austin.

She shows stuff on her blog now instead but she's heavily into parchment craft, she still does stamping but not so much.

The magpies here are very different to the ones in the UK too.
