Some Great Shots on My Walk Today

I got a couple of great shots on my walk today and one of the moon last night that I'm really proud of. I think I'm getting the hang of this! I only wish I could manually focus then it would be perfect.

A big ant was being attacked on my porch as I was leaving. I took some shots then rescued her on a leaf.

She was kicking but and had killed 3 so far.

I saw a doves nest in a tree.

I think this shot looks better.

A neat fern like plant.

My usuall flower shots are improving!

Short tree in an alley. I think it's a rogue olive. I want an olive tree but they're illegal to plant here and the pits from jars don't grow anyway.

I took some of the seeds so I can try to grow my own fuzzy ball plant.

You can see stars and the rest of the moon behind the glow!


  1. Isn't it amazing how much beauty surrounds us...

  2. Very nice!

    Why is it illegal to grow olives?

    1. It's illegal to plant them because of the pollen and the mess. In the 80's they passed a law that no new olive trees could be planted or sold. I only know of 3 trees in town and they are all too big for me to borrow.
