Around The House

Do you have an ipad?  If you do, be sure to download the free app ‘Flipboard‘.  I have several magazines I’ve curated on there, if you’d like to check them out.  I have a Wildlife And Nature flipboard where I ‘flip’ all of the awesome animal and landscape photos I find online.  Find it HERE.

I have several magazines on flipboard but one other I know you’ll like is my Photography Tips and Tutorials magazine HERE.

Don’t forget you can also download your free flickr cover photo template to spruce up your new flickr page HERE

…and ALL of my free downloads can be found HERE.

I haven’t gotten out to shoot much lately (but hoping to remedy that this weekend)…but I have been shooting here and there around my house.  We live on five acres so we get quite a bit of wildlife here in our own backyard.  I’ve put up bird feeders on pulley systems.  Why pulley systems?  Because we allow our two horses full access to all of our five acres and I need those bird feeders up high so the horses don’t ‘mug’ them (hit them with their noses, dumping out the seed and eating it).  The feeders haven’t attracted any rare birds but they are attracting the ‘usual suspects’ like Mockingbirds, Grackles, Doves, Cardinals and the occasional Blue Jay.  Oh, and squirrels…lots and lots of squirrels.

 

Here’s a few photos of the birds and other critters in our yard….
