Please use the search function ( upper left) to find older posts which have more detailed trail descriptions and pictures. You can also use this to find specific hikes either by trail or mountain.

Last few days

have been on and off rainy ( with brief shows from the sun) and we have limited ourselves to short walks around the neighborhood with me slipping out between showers for a few shots.

This little guy kept landing on busy backgrounds

and then landed on my foot

The garden is winding down but there are still some nice flowers


  1. What lens are you using for the closeups?

  2. Those dragonflies seem to get along with you. :)

  3. Hi John--some don't-there are some large ones with striped wings I have been trying to get all summer but they never let me get close enough.

  4. That's not just a 100mm's a macro 100mm which allows John to stand off from his subject a bit and still get fantastic detail. I would say he has his technique down pat.

  5. John is correct. I should have specified 'Macro'
    Thanks for the compliment John- I'm trying to get ti right
