    Spring is here and I thought it would be lovely to share pictures of Mother Nature and all her creatures in the wild. It helps on those gloomy days, to see something beautiful!

    This is that same bird on her nest on our deck
    [​IMG]
    And here are her babies a few weeks later
    [​IMG]
    And here is a squirrel in our tree
    [​IMG]
    And here is the Hibiscus

    It is bright red. I changed a lot to black and white as Im using them in a theme in my home. Now share yours and lets be in awe of what surrounds us!

    I dont have myspace so I cant see:( Use photobucket to uplaod and then copy the IMG link and paste it here.:) You can resize there too if you click ont he pic once it uplaods and then above the pic it will says Resize and tell you at what percentage the pic is being shown at now.usually mine is 63% so I go with large if the item Im showing is a small thing (like the bumblebee) so you can see detail..:) I wanna see them though!

    And thank you Candy.. Never thought of Bumble Bees as pretty though..they swarmed our redwoods when it was blooming and made it scary to use the front door! ANd yes, the Butterfly garden is quite stunning. Im excited to use my new camera..those were all taken with a point and shoot.
    CMon, more pics!!!!
    We had a Nasty nasty Ice storm a few months ago which is crazy in TN..and here are some pics of Mother nature being fieeeeeeeeeeeerce.
