Today, tomorrow and beyond

"May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond."  ~Irish Blessing

I've been trying to get a good photo of a butterfly for a week or so now but this is the best I've gotten.  I like the subtle difference in its color from one photo to the next.  That's a leaf in the background but it looks like something else or at least it does to me.  What do you think?

Happy blogging

I ❤ Woodpeckers

"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."  ~E. E. Cummings

I took these early evening yesterday while sitting in the backyard.  I love the bokeh effect.  I used the iPad app PhotoToaster to add the white vignette and the soft white frame.  

Happy Tuesday everyone and happy blogging.

Palm Warbler

Palm Warbler

"It is not half so important to know as to feel."  ~Rachel Carson

I discovered this little guy/gal flitting between two trees one evening this past weekend.  As far as I can tell it's a Palm Warbler.  I used my iPad app PhotoToaster to add the stone texture, a white vignette and a soft white frame.  

Have a great week everyone.  Until next time happy blogging.

Northern Cardinal

"Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself.
Go forward and make your dreams come true."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I had no idea I had gotten this shot.  Unfortunately, it's not very clear and sharp.  I used an iPad app called PhotoToaster to add a texture to help hide some of the flaws.  

Until next time happy blogging.
