A bug was trapped on our screened porch.

So was a butterfly.

At the fair

I love the dreamy quality of this one.

That Princess Attitude

I took this at the Orange County Fair last month. The 4H Goat Club sponsored a costume parade and all the entries were cute. This girl definitely was letting her power get to her head.

What Would Jesus Drive?

Seen in Nags Head, NC. He works at a souvenir shop!

So much for New Year's Resolutions. I haven't had time to post any photos lately, although I am making an effort to take them. This is one of the cherry trees in our yard. The other day it was alive with bumblebees, and when the cherries come, so will the cedar waxwings. They appear in great flocks for a day or two, and then they're gone. That's Spring for ya.

Frosty cow

I took this photo last month, when an overnight frost was actually unusual. Now we've had two measurable snowfalls, but today's melted before I got any photos. I'm just glad that my internets is back!

Well this is fun!

Taken with our MacBook using Photobooth and the thermal camera effect. I can see I will be playing with this program a lot.

And the walls...

...come tumbling down. They are demolishing the building between our lab (on left) and the bank (with columns) on West Main Street. I am itching to salvage some of those bricks for use around my house.

Buzzard Tree

One day I came home and found all these turkey vultures sitting on my roof. It was creepy; kind of like finding the Dark Mark over one's house. Thankfully, they decided to move into this tall tree and have been living there ever since.

New Year's Project

In an effort to take more photos in 2007, I am going to attempt to post a photo a week (at least) for the new year. I just got a Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Elph, which so far I really like. It's tiny, so hopefully I will always have it handy to document what's going on at our farm and in our lives. I expect that there will lots of animal photos as well as pictures of the beautiful scenery we have here in central Virginia. Most of the photos will be directly out of the camera; if I do any editing I will be sure to note it.

We also have a Nikon D70, which is primarily my husband's camera. I'm sure he will make a few guest appearances here.
