    Thumbs up It's photo sharing time!

    Today was hot but I got so many interesting pictures today...I haven't even been able to sort through them all, edit, and upload them yet. Here are the ones I have so far:

    More water pics since the last one was so popular. What do you see in the water splashes?







    Two amazing water lilies:




    Squirrel eating:


    Dragonfly that was perched perfectly:


    This HAS to be the cutest pic ever...it's like he's looking at me going, "What are you looking at?" LOL:


    Sunning his tattered lil' wings:


    More to come later on!

    The water things...is that like a Rorshack ink blot test?? The first pic looks like a poodle, the second a melted snowman....and i'm not sure on the third. The flowers after the water are very nice. You are good at pics....you should have a job at this!!

    The water pics remind me of ice formations. They would be very cool to have as full sized pics to gaze upon an allow one's mind to seek patterns/shapes within.

    Both waterlilies are neat. The first doesn't even look natural. LOL

    #1 bottom - an greek ancient face ( like socrates or Platon - LOL)

    #2 - don't see any specific form, but it seems to be made of silver

    # 3 - bottom at left - you can see an eye - just one looking at us, as the #8 - that is really the cutest one

    LOL...I love all the observations on the water pics. Here are some more photos as promised. I still haven't gotten to them all (lots of flower pics to come)!

    This guy has an odd habit of rubbing his wings together:






    This guy was super tiny and really cute...and he has a buddy:




    Another Gulf Fritillary:




    Lots of pollen:


    This Oleander Moth revisited today:


    A many legged creature:


    I....I have no earthly idea what this is:


    And another water pic for you all to ponder over:

    I just love all your pics Shann, thanks for sharing them with us. My imagination just run wild on the water pics, I can see a lot of distorted faces coming out from the first one. I like the way how they seem to freeze.
    I like the first set of butterfly on daisy pics as well, very nice colour combination.

    Those are awesome, Shann. I love the water photos too. They do look like ice sculptures. All are really crisp and nice. I think my favorite in this bunch is the Gulf Fritillary (second one)

    Cheers,
