Picture This #402 ~ Dealer's Choice

Many thanks to Benni for hosting this week  (even though she nearly forgot to post the theme!! LOL!!). I'm just coming to the end of a very restful two week holiday from work. I spent a few days visiting mom and then a few more days visiting Baz, before returning home for the second week. During this time I finally managed to get my photographic year started and managed to get quite a few photos taken. All my shots this week were taken in the last few days.

1) This cheeky little chappie was following me around Colby Woodland Gardens.

2) Photographing Japanese Red Maple backlit is a particular favourite of mine, here's one I took this week.

3) Here's a pair of very happy-looking Phlox flowers.

  1. Pretty little bird and beautiful leaves and flowers.

  2. glad you had a nice restful 2 weeks
    love your shots

  3. Hi Mitch, welcome back from your travels. Great picture of the wren (maybe wren) type bird. The greens in the background make her perch look like paradise. Love the Japanese maple, incredible detail and wonderful light and shadows. The phlox are so sharp and have wonderful colors. I like the composition too.

  4. Glad to had a good holiday. I do not know what the bird is, but he is really a charmer. Good catch of the chadows on the red maple. I have one in my garden, so I should look a bit closer. I have a phlox in my garden, but they arrive in all sizes and colours and only begins to flower in June and July. This is a very beautiful example.
