Take, for instance, this peculiar plant that I noticed for the first time a couple years ago. I have no idea what it is, but it is suddenly prolific in this area.
I photographed it before it had fully "bloomed," or whatever it is it's doing.
Now, to illustrate Sandra Adam's point, take a look at this photo of a neighbor's fireworks on New Year's Eve.
Yesterday, I was taking pictures of the pink ribbons across the sky...
|That's a half moon up there.|
and a pink sunset,
|I intentionally framed this photo with the icicles in it.|
when I happened to glance at the bird feeder on my front deck. It's difficult to get a crisp shot of a woodpecker through two layers of glass with film in between, and avoid the reflections in the glass. Also because the bird rarely stopped moving.
|First time ever for a woodpecker at the feeder.|
|It was after the layer of suet that covered this suet/seed block.|
