Water Lily

Lots of frogs, lilypads and many water lilies in the pond. It was difficult to take pictures in the kayak because I kept floating by the flowers.

Maine Mushrooms

The mushrooms grow pretty good on the pond. I like how the little mushrooms are seeking shelter under the big one.

Loon

Yes, persistance pays off! On my last morning in Maine, we saw one of the loons in the pond (similar spot as yesterdays shots) and I figured I’d…

This is Bruin. He is two years old and a sweet, lovable, dog. A BIG sweet, lovable, dog. I don’t think he has any idea how big he…

Frogs, Frogs and More Frogs

There were many, many, frogs in the brook. I think they enjoyed it more than we did. Click here to listen to the call of the frogs.

Vacation Food

We ate well up in Maine. My sister-in-law is a very good cook (and baker). The first night we had a nice healthy meal with lots of veggies…

R&R

Spent the last four days unplugged in Maine (no reception at my brother’s cabin). It’s nice not being tempted by Facebook, email, and everything else online. We relaxed…

Brothers

My uncle on the left and his brother on the right. The older they get the more they look alike, even from the back.

Slanted Sail

The winds left over from tropical storm Arthur were still pretty strong over the 4th of July weekend. You can really tell from slant of this sailboat.

Arthur Takes Over the 4th of July

Hurricane Arthur has created a lot of havoc for the 4th of July festivites. Boston moved it’s fireworks up a day (last night) and Plymouth has postponed the…

Funky Flower

I asked but forgot to write down what this flower was called. Funky Flower works for me.

Eye

This is the eye of a 6 year old boy. One of the cool things you can do with a macro lens and a child willing to let…

Feed Me!

Chris and Karen have a birds nest in a bush that is planted in the middle of their garden. At first it was hard to get a shot…
