July 12th - Guppy

This is the Tequila Sunrise Guppy from my aquarium. I shot 150+ photos to get just one that was clear, and this is the best I could do for now. My fish are just not lazy! They love to swim quickly, which makes it very hard to take pictures of them.

I got the gargoyle decoration because he is just too adorable! Don't you agree? :)

July 11th - Green Anemone

I went to the aquarium today, with some friends. They don't allow monopods or tripods there, so I had to handhold all my shots, and with a high ISO to boot. :( Not many of my photos came out any good, but I liked this one, so here's today's shot: A giant green anemone. Enjoy.

July 10th - Lizard

Found a lizard today. I'm not sure if it's a horny toad or a blue belly or what. Anyone know? :)
I love how easy going lizards are when you're sneaking up on them! When they're not running away very quickly! LOL

Weird, how similar this is to yesterday's shrimp shot. :P

July 9th - Shrimp

I got some new fish for my 100 gallon aquarium the other day, and I picked up 3 of these shrimp while I was there, too, to help clean the gravel. They like to hide under the plants, and I was having trouble getting a good shot of them through the water, but today these two were darn near up against the glass! I was able to get a very close, clear picture of them. :) Good thing they're not that active in the daytime. The fish always swim too fast for my camera!
The one in the front has black dots in it's belly, and the other two do not. I hope that means we'll be getting some baby shrimp, soon! :) (And, hopefully some of them will not get eaten!)

Yes, I know I need to clean the glass. lol

July 8th - Lucky Shot

The bee wasn't there when I snapped the pic, he flew in at just the right time! :) This flower was at the drive thru when I got my lunch today (I know, I know), and I only got to take this one shot. Usually I will snap 5-6 at least, to make sure I have one that is decent. But the car in front of me went, so I had to move, too. :) I call this a lucky shot.

July 7th - Veggie Flower Triptych

I thought I'd try my hand at a triptych, since I lurve them, and since three of my veggies have flowers on them! :) I'm growing food! Can you tell I'm happy about that?!?! It's been a long time since I've grown anything I can eat. It didn't really work too well, last time, either. This time is different, I'm having a ton of success so far, "knock on wooden planter box" and have over 16 kinds of veggies started. I feel like a real gardener this year! :)

July 6th - Lunch!

This June Bug was almost dead, and the ants were all over him like white on rice. I shot a few pics of it, then put the poor thing out of it's misery, so the ants could get on with their meal. 3 hours later, all evidence of this horrible incident was completely gone! It was like it never happened.

Poor, poor bug. :(

I hope you don't think I'm morbid. :P
