Sunday was one more bleak day. Since we got home early this morning, we slept late. The joys of not having small children. Then we decorated. A new wallpaper did wonders to this room. I don’t know if I am trendy or not, but it is new and different. Our cats enjoy the flowers I bought
This quote came to mind when I saw these photos of this Smiling (?) Alligator I took when visiting Florida in January.

One more day of grayness at home, it is wonderful to look at the colorful parrots we saw on our last trip to Florida.
It it is worth to look over the edge, even if not all that comfortable doing so- These lizards, were rather striking.
As we walked around the island, we came across this swan nesting her eggs. We made sure we did not go too close as they might leave the nest if you go too near the nest.
The female swan nests alone. The male is guarding the nest or is eating somewhere further away. The female rarely leaves the eggs during this month’s nesting time. So it’s virtually not eating of for four weeks. Even when the female leaves for a small distance to get something from the edible from the bottom of the sea it covers its eggs so they do not cool too much.
This snowy egret was enjoying the breeze at Naples pier.
I know these do not really qualify as macro shots- more like close-ups. Topic is love, I thought of wedding rings, a kiss…I chose these photos because one of my cats, Sisko, was run over by a car past winter, and I can clearly see that she is also missed by her brother, Veikka and by us. She was dearly loved.

This was hard, I do not often photograph creepy things,
The first is a bird skull found at our summer-house, a bird somehow gotten into our roof and died trying to get out – creepy..
A small mouse or some other rodent , well creepy?… aah!
But as a women I have to say I do not find them delightful 🙂 I nearly stepped on this when working in the field, cute here, but when in the house
The challenge was to photograph your morning. It was hard to come up with shot that would give an inkling of what my morning is like…here are shots I took, the top one is the one I admitted to the challenge…coffee, daily paper – breakfast.
The hardest part is to leave the warmth of the bed… slowly adjusting, pull a socks on, look out the window to see the weather – breakfast – enjoy the company of my pets, and finally its time to paint my face on…
What a good day
