You can share two shots this time. *Please remember just two images!* 1) Your best or most favorite shot you took in the fourth quarter of 2012 (October- December). Add #Bestof4Q12Creative366  in the comment section after you post the image! 2) Your best or most favorite shot you took for the project this year. Add #BestofCreative366Project  in the comment section after you post the image! If you think those two tags are too complicated, forget them and just two of your images! But please add your comment in the comment section after you have posted them. *And if you are the one who failed to complete the mission and are thinking you are going to do it again next year, you can add your fav one you took for the project here!* One last thing: I have made this event "public." I might have missed inviting those who are participating this +Creative 366 Project, so if you know anyone who isn't here but is doing his/her project, please invite them! 366プロジェクトもあと数日で終わりです。うれしいですか。それとも、悲しい? どちらにしても、長かったミッションの終わりを皆で祝いましょう! 今回は写真を2枚シェアしてください。 *2枚だけです!* 1.10月~12月にプロジェクト用に撮った写真から、お気に入りの写真かベストの写真を1枚選んで投稿してください。 #Bestof4Q12Creative366  のタグを投稿後にコメント欄に入れてください。 2.プロジェクトのために撮った写真から、今年のベスト(もしくはお気に入り)! の写真を1枚選んで投稿して下さい。  #BestofCreative366Project  をタグとします。 タグが面倒なら、ただ2枚を選んで投稿してくださるだけで結構です。写真のコメント欄に、その写真の思い出などを書き添えていただけるとうれしいです。 そして、このプロジェクトに参加したのに途中で挫折した!来年こそは!という方も、ぜひこのイベントにご参加ください。挫折するまでに撮った写真をシェアしていただければ結構です。もちろん、来年への抱負も添えてくださいね!The Best of Your 3662012-12-30 16:00:0086

Morning. It's been quite the hot summer and today and the next two days are going to be in the 100s plus. Yuck. I don't know if its the heat or what is going on but there have not been many butterflies around at all except for very small ones. I have planted for them but they are just not around to take advantage of, it's very sad because I love seeing butterflies. I had to go to the Nature Center at Milford Lake to be able to see some this year. This is an image I was able to capture of a Monarch on a Black-eyed Susan flower. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Hi all! So this image is a bit older one that I captured of an Imported Cabbageworm Butterfly as it was in flight. It was just about to land on the blooms of the Catmint that I have planted in the backyard. Quite the lucky moment captured. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

+Tree Tuesday  #treetuesday  

Hi all! I haven't played in this theme for a while. This is from a trip out to Colorado a while back. A lone tree stands sentinel over the valley in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. I believe it's a dead Cedar tree still beautiful in it's form. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#NewbirdPoker  curated this week by +Dominique Morice 

Hi all! So the game this week is posting birds on the day of the week that corresponds to the letter of their type. I actually had an older image I never shared of one that works. Here is a Mockingbird on Monday. This was sitting in the Walnut tree in the backyard one winter. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

It's #steamysunday  once again where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope you will share some steamy images! They do not have to be trains we like it all! Please tag us and the theme so we can find them though. They can be mist in the mountains to fog in your yard, lets see those steamy shots!
Today doesn't feel very steamy here, we are only at 60F right now. Lovely after all the heat we had. My image today is a monochrome treatment of Henry Ford's No 7 locomotive from Greenfield Village in Michigan. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning, it's a beautiful cool day here in Kansas which is quite odd but I like it! Last week I shared a Sunflower field, how about a Sunflower close up? This is one that I grew in my garden and glad I did since I could not find any fields around. This variety is obviously one of the red types. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#NewBirdPoker  curated this week by +Dusty Gedge with the theme being Vegetarians. He had to remind me which birds were strictly vegetarians and one of them I forgot was this bird that I was able to capture Sunday Morning. It is not the clearest and has a bit of canvas texture in some areas because I shot it through a screen. This little Hummingbird was eating at the feeder and then coming to rest on this branch in the tree. It sat there for a good while. Not sure what type it is with it's all white breast but it was a cutie. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! I probably won't be around much as we will not be home this evening but will catch up tomorrow.

#waterfallwednesday  

It's Wednesday and what a crazy long week it's been already. Summer break at work was not long enough at all. Sigh I have not shared a waterfall in a while so thought I'd like to see something beautiful and soothing today. This is Roughlock Falls in Spearfish Canyon in South Dakota. I took this image on a trip there last year that somehow seems a lifetime ago now. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Happy Tuesday! :-) When I was on vacation this summer we visited my sister-in-law in Lafayette, Indiana. Her new home is right by the CSX rail line and trains run by fairly regularly. I can't believe I only took a couple shots the whole time. I use the excuse that it rained a lot of the time. Anyway, here is one of the decent images I was able to get. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

#monochromemonday   #macromonday  

Hi all! Having a wacky busy day today. I was trying to grow Teasels where I live in Kansas. This is the third year they were in and I finally got blooms on them. However, the new roadwork they are doing took them out so I will have to try again when they are done. Fortunately I was able to get a few photos before they bulldozed over them. I processed this in B&W because I thought it showed off the texture well. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

My image today goes back to No. 7 at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village in Michigan as it is starting out at the main station as you enter the area.No. 7 was Henry Ford's personal locomotive for trips and has been beautifully restored. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hello! It's going to be another hot one today before it hopefully cools off this evening for the weekend. Thursday's seems to be the day for butterflies for me. I shot this one this past weekend and I need help with the ID if anyone knows. It had a definite blue cast to it but does not match any of the Blue Butterflies I could find. My best guess is that it is a Dusky Wing but it seems a bit light for that. The under-wing pattern was not like the ones shown for the typical blue types. Anyway, it was on some Rose of Sharon buds and I liked the minimal look to it. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday  

Hi all! Hot and humid here in the Midwest. Nice to have the rain, not fond of the humidity though. Today I am sharing another Egret image I was able to capture in Michigan. This Egret was fishing in the stream near a lovely old mill in the town of Dundee. I watched and took photos of it for quite a while till it was scared off by the noise of firecrackers that were fairly close by. It was on the 4th of July. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#macromonday  

Hi all! We had a lovely cool weekend and so I was outside most of the time working in the yard. My Milkweed plant has a bunch of Aphids and so I had several Ladybugs enjoying a feast. I captured this one and even came up with a title: On the Precipice . Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day. We are having our last cooler one, back into the mid to high 90s tomorrow. Sigh

Hi, it's #steamysunday  once again where co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I hope to see some steamy shots! We love ANYTHING steamy so please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy them, they don't have to be trains. Let's see those steamy shots!
My image today goes back to June in Minnesota and the large scale Wagner steam locomotive I help run. I captured it coming across the bridge while our young engineer in training was at the throttle. This locomotive in it's early days used to run out at Niagara Falls. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! We are actually having a very cool day today, not even supposed to hit 80. Very weird but I like it! :-)

Hi all! I saw this lovely sunrise on the way to work Thursday and just had to stop and take a photo. Some days it is worth being up early. :-) Hope you enjoy it and have a great day! We are actually fairly cool this weekend after some rain so i will probably be outside a lot. Catch up with you all later.

Hi all my fellow #bokeholics  and everyone! With not having any sunflower fields near me to enjoy I was glad that I planted a few of my own this year. This one is an example of the most perfect one I have ever grown. The leaves and petals were not bug eaten and opened so perfectly. Hope you enjoy it as well and have a great day!

Hi all! Have to post and run today. My day is filled with training sessions out of town. Can't believe school is about to start. This is an Uncus Skipper that was enjoying the Salvia earlier this year. I've seen a good number of these small Skippers but very few larger butterflies. Hope you enjoy it and have a good day. We are going to be quite warm at 100F again. Sigh

Hello! When I was on vacation, I was able to visit a Wolf Park in Indiana. It was raining that day but, as you can see from the image, the wolves were out and about a bit. I don't think they were enjoying the rain so much though. Still looked beautiful though a bit disheveled. :-) This was a Grey Wolf that was up and around in the rain. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

+ARCHITECTURE YESTERDAY - TOMORROW +black and white photography 

Hi all! When we were in Michigan we went into Detroit one evening for dinner. Most of what I have seen on TV is how Detroit is decaying and all kinds of abandoned buildings. That is not what I saw, I thought it was quite the lovely city with very cool architecture in some of the buildings. This image I am sharing because I like how it turned out quite a lot. This is looking towards the GMC tower with the MGM Grand a sliver on the left. These buildings had a kind of futuristic feel to them in contrast to some of the other older interesting and beautiful architecture I saw. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#NewBirdPoker  

Hello. I have a hand to play for this weeks game of Bird Poker created by +Phil Armishaw and curated this week by +Ramprakash R with Singing.
I always loved this shot but never shared it because the bird is not close. However, this is, what I feel, to be a very good example of birds on the Tallgrass Prairie. It shows the vastness of the prairie that the bird is singing to. This is a Meadowlark singing it's heart out one evening on Konza Prairie. They sit on the tallest reeds of plants and sing to others. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

My image for today I thought I would go back in the archives so I didn't bore you with Henry Ford shots. This is one from my favorite railroad that recently was voted "Favorite Tourist Railroad" by a poll from USA Today. It's Cumbres & Toltec locomotive 463 moving around cars in the yard at Chama New Mexico. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Yes Marty, they are after #seagullbuttshots  so I am out of here!
I think it's too late Mort, but OK, I'm coming too.

Hello everyone, how about another butterfly today. :-) I have not seen many large or any type of butterflies this year at my home except for Skippers. I finally saw my first Monarch but a wasp chased it away before I could get a photo. I got this photo of a lovely male Black Swallowtail at the Milford Lake Nature Center. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday #newbirdpoker  

Hi all! This is another of the bird shots that I had been able to get while I was in Michigan. One evening we went to the shore of Lake Erie as I really wanted some lake views while there. I spotted a Heron so I put my zoom lens on but I didn't even need to as it got so close at times it was difficult to get all of it in the shot. Heron's here never let you get that close, it was amazing. It was just walking along the shore looking for food. I was able to get a good number of images and this is one of my favorites. This has a bit of it's reflection so it fits the Poker game this week curated by +Jan Glasziou Rainbird .

Hello! A beautiful cool mid 60s morning here in Kansas in July how lovely! I have to share one more photo from my fabulous day where I was able to have a flight on a B-17 from 1945. This is a view of the front and as I mentioned another day, it was very hard to get an image without someone in it polishing. In this shot there are 2 people doing that. LOL I took out a couple that were just standing but the man on the left walking is our pilot. He was a very nice guy who sat and chatted with us a bit before the flight took place. A good pilot as well as we had a great flight. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

#macromonday  

Hi all! It's raining and supposed to be cooler this week so a good start to the week. I captured this Lady Mantis in my Cleome plant the other day after I was watering. Must have got her a bit wet because it you look closely she has a drop of water hanging off her face. I had never seen a Mantis so perfectly green. She blends in quite well. I only noticed her because she was moving but she sat and posed for a few photos quite nicely. Hope you enjoy her and have a great day!

Hi all it's #steamysunday  once again and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy images! Let's see those steamy shots of ANYTHING steamy you like, it does not have to be trains we like it all from steam off your coffee to mist in the mountains to fog. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy.
It's literally going to be a steamy Sunday here as we got rain this morning and then heating up for our last near 100F day. This image is from a cooler day in Michigan at the Henry Ford Greenfield Village. It's an artsy shot of No 7 through a covered bridge. I did some Photoshop work o it because there was a huge electrical box right in front of part of the train. Hope you enjoy my efforts and have a great day! Image is best viewed large. :-)

Morning all! We are going to be boiling hot once again, up over 103F. I thought I would share something that makes me feel cooler. Here's a lovely sunset image from last weekend at the Geary State Lake south of me. Hope you enjoy it and if you are hot like here be careful out there. Take it from me, push mowing in this heat is not good. :-) Hope you all enjoy the image and have a great day!

This is another of the bird images I shot while in Michigan.  Some lovely ducks and some dirty water made for lovely bokeh. :-) When I was there it did not seem dirty, I believe it is plant material and not waste and it really showed up in a photo.

Morning. It's been quite the hot summer and today and the next two days are going to be in the 100s plus. Yuck. I don't know if its the heat or what is going on but there have not been many butterflies around at all except for very small ones. I have planted for them but they are just not around to take advantage of, it's very sad because I love seeing butterflies. I had to go to the Nature Center at Milford Lake to be able to see some this year. This is an image I was able to capture of a Monarch on a Black-eyed Susan flower. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

#waterbirdwednesday  

Hi! While I was in Michigan, I was able to get some images that, for me, are the best ones I have ever gotten of 2 birds that are fairly elusive to me. The first was of this Egret that I captured a number of shots of one evening after dinner. In this image it had just caught a fish and was going to eat it. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!

Morning! So, as I mentioned I got to fly on a B-17 two Wednesdays ago. It was a very cool experience and one I highly recommend. It is through the Yankee Air Museum at Willow Run Airport in Michigan. This is the front of the B-17G that they fly showing the nose art. It was built in 1945 but did not fly in the war. It was used by the Coast Guard from 1946 to 1958 for search and rescue missions. It has been restored to Combat style reediness with Machine Guns and bomb sights, etc. It was a beautiful plane and was very hard to get an image of it without someone in the photo polishing on it. I removed that person in this image. :-) Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

Hi! We are going to be boiling hot all week, at or over 100F (38C) so I thought this image was appropriate to share. This is a sunny Sunflower that I actually photographed during the winter from some cut ones in the un against a black background. I went looking for a local sunflower field on Saturday and was disappointed to see that it was all corn fields this year. Glad I grew a few of my own. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day.

Hello! It's #steamysunday  and co-curator +Paul Pavlinovich and I want to see your steamy shots today of ANYTHING steamy you like. We enjoy everything from mist in the mountains to steam off your tea to steam engines. Please tag us and the theme so we can find and enjoy. Let's see those steamy shots!
It's going to be a bit steamy here today, 100F about 38C. My image today is from Henry Ford's Greenfield Village inside it's Roundhouse. The Edison locomotive is another of the 3 that they use to pull the train around the park. The large loco in the back is just a display one that you can view from underneath which is pretty cool. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! Note: I will have a bit more info about the photo on my Blog today if you are interested in the image more. www.alittleplaceontheweb.com

"Hey, what are you doing? Why are you back there taking a photo, my face is up here!" I found this agent of the Gullmanati on a beach in Michigan. He is not fully mature so not wise to the ways of evasion. This is for that theme that I have haven't heard of #seagullbutsaturday  Not sure who all are in on this so tagging a few I have haven't seen mentioned somewhere.

Hi all! It's dark and cloudy out today. Felt like something bright. How about a Bumble on some Butterfly Milkweed. They sure are enjoying it this year. Wish I'd see some butterflies though. Hope you enjoy the image and have a great day!

We are actually getting some rain these days. Had a storm yesterday and one is about to hit today. We need it after the heat we have had drying everything out. For my photo today, I saw this guy before I left on vacation and haven't seen if he is still around. I was pulling some weeds in my garden and saw some movement which I thought was an animal of some kind. All of a sudden, this big guy came hopping out. He is the biggest frog I have had at my pond for a long time, at least as big as my hand. He stayed for a bit and modeled so I had to show him off. Hope you enjoy him and have a great day!

+TransportTuesday 

Morning all! I mentioned last week that I was going to get to do something once in a lifetime if it did not rain. Today I am sharing a couple images in one of what I got to do. The hubster and I were able to take a flight in a WWII restored B-17 bomber shown in the image with the bomb doors open. I think they did that to cool it off inside. Anyway, it was such a cool experience. 12 are allowed to go at a time but 2 did not show. We started out in the back but as soon as it took off you were allowed to get up and move about and see the different views out the plane. Obviously from the pic on the left, at one point I was standing behind the pilots. I got to sit in the Navigator's seat for landing and that was quite the view and close enough to the front for someone that does not like heights. LOL They don't bother me much in a plane though which I find weird... more »

Anyway, it was a very awesome experience that I found especially exciting because I have an uncle who was a pilot of these planes during the war. So hope you enjoy the image and have a great day! The image is best viewed larger of course. :-)

Hi all, I have a hand to play in this week's game of On a Branch curated by +Darion Jackman . I hit a couple sub-themes, one of yellow and also feet well, half hit that one as it is only a foot. :-) This is a Goldfinch I captured this spring at my in-laws that was perching in their Ornamental Pear tree. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day.

So this past week I was in Michigan and went to the Henry Ford Museum and Village. At Greenfield Village they have Ford's original steam locomotive #7 that used to pull his Pullman car where he was needing to go. It's a beautifully restored engine from 1897. I love the color of it as well. I rode behind it around the Village a few times and photographed it in several places. Here it is pulling out at the main entrance. Hope you enjoy it and have a great day!
