Photos of the week

Here are some photos I've taken recently.

This is a cool dragonfly that happened to fly in and stay overnight one day.

A view from when it was flying.

My almost perfect picture of my dogs. Ahh, how cool, gray skies does wonders for these types of photos. I should also add that I had absolutely no rewards with me for this photo shoot. It still took several to capture this one, but not bad. They are learning how much Momma loves to shoot all of them together.

This is Tovah and Luna, a recent boarder. Luna, a "snorkie," belongs to my former professor. She is very small, probably like 6-8 pounds if that. These two are buddies, and Luna puts up with Tovah's barking and play gestures! I have really cute video footage on my blackberry of them playing. I just really liked this photos for the expression.

My latest crave. I'm now over the plum thing and have moved onto grapes. A week or so ago, I bought a package of green, red, and black, as well as some cute champagne grapes which turned out a lot harder to eat than expected. The mix below is grapes, bananas, blueberries, honey almonds, and french vanilla yogurt. YUM!

Some of you may remember that pretty cracked bowl way back in March. Well, I finally replaced it with this beautiful handmade, turquoise bowl my mom found at the Tamarack, a cool store/restaurant in West Virginia.

A recent disaster which I came home to. Well, not really, but stuffing everywhere. And nope, it was not the littlest one, Tovah, but rather Hank, my Aussie X, the second in command. For whatever reason, he decided he needed t destuff his dog pillow. I guess no more sweet dreams for him. :grin:

This is a wasp nest. It's pretty and all, but it's definitely not something I like seeing under the ledge of the roof!

I love the pic of all your dogs! What a great family.

The bowl is really pretty, too. Pretty dishes make food taste better, I know.

Great pictures! I can't believe you got those great shots of that dragonfly! And your dogs are soooo cute. Plus, that fruit and yogurt dish looks delish. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comments all. I really find it fun to capture wildlife as vividly as possible.

And my dogs, they are a hoot to photograph.
