Sunday Stills - Aww Nuts


So this is my Aww Nuts moment! I decided to go with the expression "Aww Nuts!" for this one!
There is a story behind this and I don't know if ya'll will find it funny but to us it was hilarious! This is my wonderful friend Terri. We went to her house for a cookout and of course, being the wonderful person that I am, I decided it would be funny to pour a whole glass of ice water down her back while she was otherwise occupied. Upon doing this she lets out this half scream/half sound that only dogs can hear and goes for the water hose she had been trying to roll up. Being the coward that I am, naturally, I run into the house laughing my butt off! After a few moments in the house laughing I decided it was safe and I went back outside to see her trying to roll up the hose again, only to have it go crazy and spray her in the face! So needless to say "Aww Nuts!" So this is my interpretation of the Aww Nuts for this weeks challenge! Terri my life would be dull without you!!!! :}

Here's the blurb:
Time for a bit of fun, this is for creativity as well as photography, take this challenge as you will and have fun.
Since we have alot of folks in ranching here I think we may see some fuzzy subjects, so be it and if anyone is offended I advise ya don’t check ranch blogs next week . Me personally, I don’t mind and am not easily offended.
Also I would like to personally welcome all the new folks here, we are truely going global and this has me in awe, only last December we started this with only a handfull of folks and now well it is a true community and I’m proud to be part of it. THANKS!!!!!!
Hava great week……Ed"

Sunday Stills - Wildflowers






Well I didn't realize until I started uploaded that I got no oranges or reds! Oh well. Here are my top pics for the week! I think I have a problem with zooming in on my subjects! Maybe I need to challenge myself to focusing a little farther away and seeing what I come up with. I also got some really good shots of a butterfly. But I didn't want to take away from the wildflower challenge so I will post them later! Happy 4th everyone!


O.K. heres the challenge and it is a challenge. Grab your camera and find an open field, fence row, empty lot, and get some wildflowers. The challenge is no flower gardens, botanical gardens, hanging baskets, etc… I manage to find wildflowers in the most unusual places, you just have to look. Oh yeah, weeds are considered wildflowers. The only folks who get a pass this week are those of you who live in the Southern Hemisphere because its winter,so, whatever ya find thats cool.
Good Luck….Ed"
