Flora and Fauna

I also love taking photos from nature, the flora and the fauna.
If you click on any of the pictures, you can go
through them all on a larger scale.
Seagulls are abundant in our area,
 as we are on the shores of Lake Huron, and the St. Clair River.
My sister Wendy has some gorgeous flowers in her back yard,
This one in a friends yard.
I enjoy my flowers, and have grown many different species.
What can I say, I love chipmunks!  When my sisters and I go camping
I always take along a bag on nuts to feed my fury friends
that at times have followed me around the campground!

Apple blossom time in our yard.

Flowers and one of my gardens.  I really need to plant that one again!
 I love bumble bees.  They're so pretty, and to me add beauty to my gardens.

 Queen Anne's Lace.  It reminds me of sparklers.  So dainty!
 I really thought these guys were pretty when I first saw them, till I realized
these Japanese beetles were killing my plants.  Don't like them anymore!
 Dragon flies are in plenty at my brother's house,
 so many different varieties.  
Another insect that fascinates me.
 It looks larger in the picture, but this little
 hummingbird nest was in his maple tree.
 My morning glory's from a couple years ago.  They loaded my arbor!
 Love this little beetle!

Well Mr. Snapper that lives in the front yard drain, says greetings, 
while I say I hope you enjoy these pictures!

Some great captures, Laurie. The little chipmunk is so sleek and beautiful and I love the bugs, too. Diane

Hi Laurie! Oh, what a sweet seagull! I kinda miss them form the Texas Gulf Coast! We had the laughing ones. Your sis's flowers are very nice. Hope you're enjoying your summer.
be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
