Green Tree Frog

Found this guy while walking the dog today.

I didn’t have the good camera and the crappy camera was having trouble telling all the greens apart, so I had him climb my hand. As you can tell, he was really really thrilled.

He didn’t like this one because it makes him look fat. […]

Restaurant

Ah, small towns. This was taken in Center City, Minnesota.

I thought it was a bit odd, but then I noticed that this guy was right next door.

Random Park

Yup, just what it says on the tin.

Yellow

I know I already have a pretty nice picture of this one flower here, but hey, I like it.

So here’s a few more I got today.

Painting

In honour of World Turtle Day, and because I luckily stumbled on him while walking the dog, here is a photo of a painted turtle:

There are tons of these guys at the park we walk […]

Gigi’s Birthday

I had a different photo planned for Gigi’s 9th birthday, but sadly we had no sun that day. So I snapped this on my phone.

Water

Blackbird

While taking the swan pics I posted earlier (as in, 30 seconds ago) I got this nice shot of lens flare a red-winged blackbird, which is one of my favourite birds.

Swan Song

I’ve been seeing these swans around here for a while now. Never when I have the camera, naturally. One time I rushed home and got the camera but by the time I got back, they were gone. Apparently they can fly away or something. I was starting to think that maybe I was imagining them.

Tomatoes

I started about 40 tomato plants in a mini-greenhouse in my basement.

This one is a Black Cherry.
