04/23/10 - Blue Beauty
As I was coming home from work yesterday, I passed my neighbor's yard where there is a small, ornamental wood fence along their road front and about 50 bearded iris plants. The late day light was coming through the trees hitting just a few of the flowers. I passed the house but turned around and went back to take some pics. I liked how this one turned out best. I fixed 2 distracting spots and adjusted the contrast and color a tad.
Joey and I had a great time at Take Your Child to Work day. Not only were there planned educational activities with building circuits, Lego Mindstorm robot programming, and program a robot to make a PB&J sandwich, etc. there were quite a few fun activities too like face painting, tricycle obstacle course, and ice cream. He was tracked out of school (goes back this coming Monday), so it definitely made sense for us to go.
Very glad you all enjoyed the bluebird shots from yesterday. Thank you for your comments. I will do my absolute best to get pics again next week when the babies are bigger and cuter. The nest is in a cardboard nesting cup, so that's how I was able to get such a good shot of the babies.
