Gailen Mapes66,095Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30Note: 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-07-14 10:42:14187449CC G+

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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-06-14 11:12:201974111CC G+

Graeme McRae26,639Graeme's Circle of Active GooglePlussers! . . . This is a curated circle of active people on Google+ If you add this circle, you will see hundreds of new posts per day in your stream from this circle alone. If you’re in the circle (you’ll know ‘cause I notified you) then please reshare it! It's a circle of people I started following a few months ago, and who have consistently posted something at least once a week during all of weeks since then. If you want an interesting stream, you should add this circle. If you're interested in how I curated this circle, and why I think it makes for a really great stream, read on. . .How did these people get in the circle?. . . They must have posted something interesting, at least once, because I don't follow people unless they post something interesting. By now, you're probably not surprised by the number of people on G+ whose pages are full of repeated posts, videos without comments, "what's up" and other uninteresting things. I don't follow those people.How did they stay in the circle since they were added?. . . After I add someone, I keep them in the circle of people I added around the same time. Then, several times a week, I go through all my circles and delete people who haven't posted (something visible to me) in the last 7 days. So the people who are left in the circle are consistent posters. That says something important about them, because consistency is a proxy for quality.Wait. What? Why is consistency is a proxy for quality?. . . I'll admit it: I don't have the science to back up that wild statement, but I'll tell you why I believe it to be true. People who post crap don't get a lot of followers, and the few followers they have don't bother to engage. After a while, the crappy-posting people start to think G+ is a ghost town, and they lose interest (or funding). On the other hand, the people who share (or re-share) interesting things get followers and engagement, slowly at first, but ever increasing, and this outpouring of love is what keeps them going. That's what I think anyway, and I'm sticking to it.People who share interesting things get lots of followers. . . This is another half-baked theory of mine, but hear me out. You might think this makes sense: Google+ offers suggestions of people to follow, especially to new users. Google+'s only source of names to suggest are other G+ers like yourself. The G+ers who have the most engagement are the ones Google+ knows will be good to follow, so these people get put out as suggestions more often, and some percentage of those suggestions are taken up. So the more engagement you have, the more Google+ will suggest you as a person to follow, and so the more followers you'll get. Completing the theory: the more interesting the stuff you share (or reshare), the more engagement you'll get, and hence the more followers you'll get.Do you punish people for unfollowing you by unfollowing them back?. . . No. Well, not directly. I only unfollow people who haven’t posted in the past 7 days. If you posted privately to your circles or your extended circles, and then you unfollow me, then I won’t see those posts any more, and I’ll assume you haven’t posted in the past 7 days, and, yes, I will unfollow you in that case. But if your posts are public, my methodology doesn’t care whether you follow me.How can I get in your circle?. . . Don't bother trying to "get into" this circle. This circle isn't for you to get into. Think of it the other way around. This circle is for you to add, so you can follow a bunch of interesting and consistent people. The stream from this one circle will be chock-full of fascinating content for you to reshare. People will star2014-06-02 08:37:424398612CC G+

White Bleeding Hearts
May peace, love and compassion reign in our hearts in these difficult times of tragedy, sorrow and conflict!
I will be on very limited G+ time in the next 2 months due to an ongoing mentorship training, but will continue to post but with lesser interactions. I will try to visit your wonderful posts when I get the chance.
Goodnight G+ and wish you all the best this week!

(Please also note that Buddleia is a non native bush in the US and very invasive so I suggest you plant these in containers and not on the ground)

I think I'm getting too heavy for this leaf! .........

A seven spotted ladybug or ladybird on our Joe Pye weed leaf! Ladybugs are beneficial insects as they consume aphids (as much as 50 to 60 a day or 5,000 in its lifetime) and other harmful plant insects like mealy bugs and mites. They are a natural pest control to our gardens and very pretty for pictures too!

#googlehelp   #googlefail   #missingposts  !!!!! I can't find my current posts again after June 05, 2014. I've logged off many times, refreshed and plussed those photos from my albums to bring back the posts and still I can't find them. I am only seeing my posts on June 05 and earlier. This is such an intermittent problem for me and it's happening on my Android phone too! It seems to be happening more often than before!
I use Google Chrome. If you are reading this message can you please click on my profile page and let me know what date is the latest post you see? Any suggestions on how to bring back missing posts if you know any?

Summertime is also butterfly time! This is a Spicebush Swallowtail (Papilio troilus) captured this weekend on our blooming milkweed  (Asclepias tuberosa)! Milkweeds are very vital to the existence of the Monarch butterfly whose numbers are dwindling each year. So I decided to plant them this year. If you garden or have a yard, I encourage you to plant some.  Milkweed are host plants to the Monarch (They lay eggs only on Milkweed and the Monarch caterpillars feed on their leaves). Milkweed blooms are also nectar food to other adult butterflies like this spicebush swallowtail and other pollinators!

The Virginia Spiderwort (Tradescantia virginiana) photographed last week at the Winkler Botanical Gardens in Alexandria, Virginia. This garden preserve is home to so many wildflowers. The spiderwort was chosen as the wildflower of the year for 2008 by the Virginia Native Plant Society. See more in this link http://vnps.org/wildflowers-of-the-year/2008-virginia-spiderwort-tradescantia-virginiana/
Hope to find more wildflowers to capture especially those chosen for a particular year and share it every Wednesday here in G+!

Day 5 of my #fivedayquest  ! A Calla Lily I photographed yesterday at a nursery minutes from work. I buy my annuals from this place and they have a wonderful selection of annuals and perennials! It was great fun playing this game which motivated me to take a picture everyday and sharing it! Today I am inviting +Linda Villers to play this game. Hope you can join in the fun Linda! The rules are simple:
- take a picture of your day for the next five days,
- share it and use the hashtag #fivedayquest
- invite a friend to join in each day
- tag the original person who invited you.
I thank +Shelly Gunderson for the invitation and if you haven't been invited yet and you'd like to play this is an open invitation for you to play. Just follow the rules mentioned and have fun!

I photographed this on May 14 (Day 4 of my quest) but didn't get a chance to share it that day after work since I was processing my Scavenger Hunt photos for submission.
Today I invite +John Wade to play the game. The rules are simple: share a photo of your day for 5 days, invite a friend to join each day, use the hashtag #fivedayquest  and tag the original person who invited you! In my case, I got into this game by the kind invitation of +Shelly Gunderson!
It's okay too John if you can't play or if you're too busy these days, you can always start at a later date!

Day 3 of my #fivedayquest  ! I see and hear birds everyday at home, on my way to and from work. But it isn't everyday that I see a robin on a fire hydrant with a meal in its mouth so this is a real treat for me to photograph today. If you look closely, what the robin has in its mouth are leaves with lots of worms. Today I would like to invite +Jasbir S. Randhawa to join in this game, where you share and photograph a part of your everyday life for 5 days. Each day you invite a friend to join and tag the original person who invited you (in my case it was +Shelly Gunderson ) and use the hastag #fivedayquest  in your posts.  How about it Jasbir, you take pictures daily so this game is up your alley! It's okay too if you can't or you can start later if you're too busy!

Day 2 of my #fivedayquest  ! It isn't everyday that I see a butterfly on my lunch break walks, but today while walking along a pathway, there it was my first skipper butterfly sighting and capture for the season! This is a Silver Spotted Skipper butterfly.
Today I invite +Jean Connor whose flowers I truly admire,  to join #fivedayquest  where you share and photograph a part of your everyday life for 5 days and each day you invite someone to play along. It's okay if you can't play Jean, but if you do want to join the game just tag the original person who invited you and for me it was the wonderful +Shelly Gunderson !

Hello G+ and Happy Thursday! If you haven't seen one yet, this is a Gray Catbird (Dumetella carolinensis)! They are also gorgeous backyard birds belonging to the mockingbird and thrasher family. Notice the black band on its head the reddish patch under its tail.
Wish everyone a great day and back again here later tonight!

Good morning or good day from a Red Bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus) perched on our peach tree. I think this one happily obliged to show us the red colors on its belly that's why they are named as such! Also wishing  +John Wade a very Happy Birthday! All the best on your special day John!
....and I'm feeling much better today after a bout of the nastiest flu the past days! Hope you are all feeling well!

My first capture of a A Red Tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis) in flight. Not the best bird in flight photo but it's my personal best so far as it's my first open wing capture of a hawk in flight.  This magnificent bird of prey was soaring and circling high up in our backyard (most likely looking for  a meal of rodents and birds that visit our feeders)! 
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!

An American Robin perched on our budding oak tree to wish you all a great start of the week!  A common songbird across the U.S. and its scientific name is Turdus migratorius. We normally see them on lawns and grass foraging for worms and bugs so it was a treat for me to capture it perched on a branch.

Good morning from a Mourning Dove to the morning side of world. Peace and good day to all!  Happy Thursday everyone!  A common bird here in North America and the scientific name is Zenaida macroura. Photographed early this morning, I see and  hear these doves almost daily in our backyard.
