Scavenger Hunt...


It's been forever and a day since I've played over at Ashley's.
I literally decided an hr. ago to play you'll forgive me if I put on my cheater pants for one of the is freezing cold but it's helping the firemen with the fires to the East & West of us.

So without further interpretations of the prompts this week:


Here's a little secret I use for my background...I go to the craft stores and find scrapbook paper that resembles wood for my close up shots. Pretty cool idea huh?


One of my Monarchs from the fall. I never get tired of looking at these beauties. My i-phone has taken some amazing shots of my babies.


So yesterday, the WEATHER(here's where I'm wearing the cheater pants!) was perfect to snap a pic of  one of several hummers that went crazy protecting his territory. The skirmishes lasted all day. 


There's a small window when fruit is at it's sweetest peak...Now is that time.
Thanks for hanging out with me today.
Happy (weekend) Snapping!


  1. Thanks for the tip on the usage of paper for your background.... inexpensive and creative AND it looks gorgeous!

    1. Thank you! If you try it-let me know ok?

  2. Fantastic shots Sis .... but the hummingbird pic is my fave!!!! Wowza!!!! I have a hummingbird feeder .... put it out last year for the first time ... not one dang hummingbird came to visit. I think I'll put it out again this year and give it another try!
    Thanks for the scrapbook paper tip!!!!! :-D Love it!

  3. I love all of your shots, Kelly. The eggs may very well be my favorite for the day, but if I check back tomorrow, I'd probably choose the berries. And the next day... another one. I can't wait to try the scrapbook paper tip. Thanks!!

  4. Oh I love your speckled eggs and that hummingbird & butterfly are amazing!! Hmm, never thought of wood-looking scrapbook paper...great idea!!

  5. I'm in love with each one of these - the speckled eggs are awesome, catching the hummingbird in flight, amazing; and love the composition of your blueberries. Scrapbook paper that looks like wood. check.

  6. When I saw the Monarch as the thumbnail over at Ashley's, I just had to come check out your finds this week! We raise Monarchs every year. Love them!

    Your photos are all wonderful! Love the idea of wood-patterned scrapbook paper. And I love those spotted eggs! Your shot of the hummingbird is spectacular!

  7. Very nice photo set. Motion is a really good composition. Spotted with bokeh background may be my favorite. Have a blessed week.

  8. I love how you turned eggs into a beautiful piece of art. Very creative composition. All your shots are great!

  9. I love everyone of these!! Thanks for the tip on the background paper!
