So since i've been at this new place i decided to set up the white board and snap a few indoor shots and i absolutely love the lighting in this house. They came out so bright! It is so nice not to have really dark SOOC pictures to work with. Editing these was quick and and fun.

Sleeping beauty

So when i went in to grab serene from her nap for supper she was still out cold. I never get to take pictures of her sleeping.

My snapping pictures made her pop up pretty fast though.

Beautiful Curiosity

Adorable spider

This little jumping spider i happened to see on my window. I put him on my counter to take a couple snap shots of him. Isn't he just adorable?

Fishcreek Park

Some more pictures of my day at fish creek park.

This little frog was blended in so well in the pond i'm surprised i managed to notice him. I was trying to take a picture of the water reflections when i noticed him nestled in the grass.

This little robin was only here for a moment before he flew away. I would have loved to get closer, but i guess i need to practice swift, quiet walking.

Ants are such fascinating little creatures to me. Take note to the ant closet to the top, it is carrying a baby ant in it's mouth. I have no idea what they were doing, i think possibly transporting the babies to a different section. These pictures were the most incredibly hard pictures i've ever had to take, their nest was in a tree and they covered the ground where i had to stand to get in close enough to photograph them. They did not appreciate me trying to get in close. I kept getting attacked. I would have to jump back and shake my feet and run back in and then run away. I gave up, but i was happy to get these few shots

This ant was a pleasure to photograph, I had noticed a couple ants by a different tree a little later in the day not near a nest, they must have been out looking for food.

Water Reflections

I heart faces "Faces and Flowers" Photo challenge

This is my entry for "Faces and Flowers" Photo challenge this week.

This picture was taken at a gardens by an old symmetry, it was the only flower in site, nothing else was planted or in bloom yet. She enjoyed smelling it.

The Nature of things

I'm sure you are looking at this picture wondering what it is. It's moss, i think. It was growing on a tree anyways so i would assume that is what it is.

A crow, gracefully swooping through the air.

A bush, budding in the spring time.

Creepy crawlers

This is my tarantula cupid, isn't she adorable?

Can you guess what part of her body this is?

Give up? It's her fangs.

My favorite part of her....her little feet
The hooks you see are so tiny you can barely feel them as she uses them to grip on to your hand so she doesn't fall.

What a beautiful hairy leg

Oh look, she's waving hello

A fly that was in my backyard, i wish i could have snapped more but he flew away quickly.
