Longhorns

I just downloaded these from my camera and I just had to share at least one of them!!

We went to the Wildlife Refuge after the rains. It was amazing to see everything to alive and bright since we’ve had a drought the past couple of years. There were huge herds of longhorns enjoying the green grass. Some were grazing and some were just laying around.

Today, I just had to post this cute little prairie dog that we saw.  My parents were here visiting and we couldn’t miss an opportunity to head out to the Wildlife Refuge.  As we were leaving, I stopped to get some photos of some geese that were nearby.  However, this friendly little prairie dog spotted my dad watching him out the window and he couldn’t help but to pose for us.

Isn’t he just adorable!?!?  We had so much fun getting shots of him and my dad couldn’t resist talking to him and getting the little guy to show off.

This shot for Macro Monday and I Heart Macro.  I’ve missed doing these memes the past couple weeks.  Life just tends to happen!!  Anyway, this beautiful soft purple wildflower was captured out on the Wildlife Refuge.  There was a field of them and it was a fairly windy day, but when isn’t it in OK!?! ?  I think it’s just one of the prettiest things blowing in the wind!!

Here’s my Macro Monday and I Heart Macro (click to enlarge)…..

I hope that you enjoy my Macro Monday and I Heart Macro!! If you do, please check out this week’s Macro Monday and I Heart Macro participants for more great photography!!

Foto Finish: Look Up

Foto Finish

For today’s Foto Finish, the theme is “look up”.  I didn’t want to do the typical birds or trees….or even a flag.  That would just be too predictable.  Then I remembered these birds that were circling while we were on the Wildlife Refuge during the huge wildfire there.  They were very eery to say the least!!

I decided to use one of those images for my Foto Finish.  Unfortunately, the quality is very low on this one. Here’s my subject for “look up”….


For an update on the wildfire, they estimate that over 20,000 acres burned.  There’s still no cause for the fire, except for extreme heat with no rain, dry, and windy.  The only animal loss was 1 old elf found dead.  It seems that all the other animals remained safe.  With recent sprinkles and even a little rain in the area, there’s already tiny green sprouts of grass coming up through the burned land.  Life does go on!!

Do you “look up” very often??  If so, If you do, just post your photos and click the button above to join in on Foto Finish !!
