Lotus Carroll1,769,722This is the Event for our April Self Portrait Challenge: Personality! What is meant by this? It's time to show us some personality, baby. Capture a self portrait that conveys a lot of personality - an element of your true personality or some other one that you'd like to portray. When you submit your image, use the photo caption area to tell us what personality element you are portraying. Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Personality!" theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST April 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Inspiration* @111718830236077991058, one of our many talented moderators in The Art of Self Portraiture Community, wrote a great tutorial on shooting self portraits - check it out here: http://goo.gl/xaPva8 He is also the contributor of our theme photo on this event. Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we'll be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired. If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/M7XTQ and ask away!

Jeff Smith61,187Welcome to The Selfy Sunday Project for June 30/13. *Theme: The Headshot* This theme is a take on the classic portraiture pose, "the head shot". For some this may me a mug shot but what I am looking for is not a typical head shot but one with some style and flare would be great. Thanks +Kelli Seeger Kim for the great event cover photo. Like always everyone is looking forward to some great Selfies. We have 17 moderators who can help you along the way. ___________________________ UPLOADING The event will be open for uploading photos at 9:00 PM on the Saturday before.

"Peace Day" provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982........ Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense." *Join in shaPeace Day2012-09-26 09:30:00621

Gailen Mapes78,655Note: next month this circle will be split. *Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 30*Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-02-14 12:33:02215001

Gailen Mapes75,281Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to January 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-14 11:53:10204000

A female Red Winged Blackbird

We are minus 10 degrees F (-23 Celsius) for overnight lows tonight a record temperature for us here in the Washington DC region, which includes parts of Maryland and Northern Virginia. Stay warm to everyone affected by this Polar Vortex that is bringing the coldest weather in decades in the U.S.!
Hope to visit your pages this weekend and hope to slowly get back to curating and to my other commitments here in G+ in a few days as my eyes are getting better.
Goodnight and/or good day and Happy Friday all!

White Throated Sparrow....one of my favorite winter birds. 
We are still in the deep freeze here in the East Coast, so stay warm everyone!
For those of you that share with +Backyard Birding Monday #BackyardbirdingMonday I'm very sorry that I have been remiss in my curating duties but I have to rest my eyes after work due to a recurring eye condition of redness. I limit computer time at home to an hour or so these days as I already strain my eyes at work in front of the computer the whole day.

A European Starling in winter plumage, photographed a few days ago. The white spots in their feathers turn dark and glossy during summer.
All the European Starlings in North America descended from 100 birds set loose in New York's Central Park in the early 1890s. The birds were intentionally released by a group who wanted America to have all the birds that Shakespeare ever mentioned. It took several tries, but eventually the population took off. Today, more than 200 million European Starlings range from Alaska to Mexico, and many people consider them pests, especially that they overrun nesting cavities of native bird populations like the blue birds.

The trees at Skyline Drive in autumn colors! (Best viewed large!) Skyline Drive is a 105-mile road that runs the entire length of the Shenandoah National Park in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It is a must see this time of year.

Drinking up nectar with a floral straw!!!
Not the best hummer shot but so thrilled to have captured this hummingbird sucking up nectar from our Agastache blooms while perching! This was shot through our morning room glass window!
Do you also know that hummingbirds only spend 15% of any day in flight and the rest they spend perching, resting up and digesting?!
Since they are very tiny birds we notice them more in flight when they move and forage in short, sharp bursts around our feeders and in their favorite flowers.

Looking up!  There's always more nectar at the rosy Agastache!

So the hummingbirds are gone and all that's left are images of summer's past!
Taken a week from today with feelings of separation anxiety :(
Took down all the feeders except one, hoping there might be a migrant passing through and needing a drink or two.
Hope this image brings you cheer and happy weekend to you all!
