random lovelies from Flamingo Gardens, Davie, Florida

Nothing soothes my soul better than the sights, sounds, smells and sanguinary beauty of nature.  What could be more lovely than the varied colors of nature?   I feel these colors are so joyful they seem to dance with each other in perfect step and in perfect harmony.

    1. Hi Journey, Thanks so much! I have a thing with otters, too, but they are tough to pin down and shoot…they are always on the go! 🙂

  1. the bird that has the comment “Love the colours”. Do you know what kind of bird it is? That is just too amazing for words. I have never seen a picture like that!. Thanks for posting those.

    How you doing? Well all the leaves are pretty much on the ground now but there is still this lovely 12 degree weather still lurking with lots of sunshine. It is truly one of the better Fall climates that I can remember, way up here in Toronto. I guess all of you down there are getting ready for your Thanksgiving. My husband Peter always watches the football on that Thursday, and we try to cook a Turkey too.

  2. Hello Weezie! Oh, it’s always wonderful to hear from you! It just makes my day when i see you have left a note on here. 🙂

    Well, I must tell you, i can’t for the life of me remember what kind of bird it is….But, just loved it – glad that s/he was lovely enough to pose for me so nicely!

    I’ve been doing real well… busy as a bee at work – lots of projects and trainings that I am facilitating. So, when I get home, I’m just too tired to do much of anything on the ole blog, and I feel guilty about it. But, I am working on a story that I hope to post soon.

    The weather here in Florida is GRAND! We have cool mornings and nights though no real cold snaps to speak of yet… soon, I hope! I’ll be with family on Thanksgiving…. yeah, football seems to be our national pastime, too… it’s inevitable that a game goes on in the background on Thanksgiving day!

    All the best my dear… ❤

  3. I stumbled across your blog by accident; I really enjoy it, nice work. What program did you use for the slideshow of the birds? Thanks.

    1. Hi Pam, Thanks so much. The slideshow was created via wordpress’ widget for displaying images! It’s pretty easy – just a matter of loading the pictures in, clicking a button to publish, and that’s it!

  4. Andrea; Haven’t been here for a while. Can hardly wait for more of your creative dimensions. I need a favour. You sent me the name of your camera and I thought I had saved it in my address file. Could you possibly send it to me again. We are looking for a camera ( ha ha, this is a recording), and I think yours is so extreme and accurate but of course it’s the camera gal that is creating all this lovely photographic pleasure. I wonder who that is? Anyway when you have a free moment I would appreciate the name and model if you don’t mind. I bought a CANON printer so I am looking on their website at a few cameras, but I don’t know which one to research. Thanks friend. How’s the weather down there? I pity the poor people without air conditioning. I have never felt such heat in my life!!! and of course the meds I’m on, due to the cancer put me in menopause overload. In other words triple the side effects of the normal meno and that’s me. ON FIRE….. TTYL

    1. Hi there my friend! LOL, I haven’t posted any photos since forever! I must get back to it – it’s just so hot of late. When the weather cools down, I’ll be at it again!

      My camera is a Canon Rebel XX 1000D. The Rebel is Canon’s popular brand for professional photography, though my camera is really for pre-professional work, it sure works fine for me! If I were a rich girl, I’d buy a real fancy one! And I will do that – one of these days, I will!

  5. Thanks Andrea. It’s so hot up here I barely go out except to garden in the early morning before the rays beat down. I have never been so grateful to have air conditioning. I have to admit, I’m looking forward to FALL this year. Hope you are enjoying your weekend and I will be waiting for those photos…… lol

    1. Thank you very much, Frizztext! And, I apologize because your comment made it’s way into the SPAM folder and I didn’t realize it until just this moment. So sorry
