A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES 27


A Shutterbug explores the surrounding areas of Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant. We do look for 'the magic'and sometimes
 it appears when we are seemingly not looking. 
What a gift! What treasures nature offers!

There are no flowers in the pot because last Spring what I planted in the flower pot some 'critter' ate them ~ Hence the 'looney' birds for L for ABC Wednesday.

  28. A lovely quote from Chief Seattle, such wise words and a lovely haiku also. Beautiful photos. The moon shot at twilight is stunning and your other moon shot is amazing, love the soft light. Your Loony Birds are so cute and that old stone gate, goodness, I wonder if it has one of those lovely old stone homes to match on the other side. It really is lovely! Your pup is a little doll, love seeing her in your posts. Nice shot of the ice-cream shop front. I like your sketch of the eggs in the Easter basket. Hope you are feeling better now. Have a great weekend :)

  40. First of all, be well! I hope the medical problems are getting solved.

    AMD is cute shutting her eyes against that intrusive camera lens. (She looks so cute in pictures, I don't know why she's camera shy!)

    Spring certainly is coming to your area (eventually) ... at least the ice cream store owner thinks so ;>)!

    Your skies and shores are always beautiful in any season, although I'm sure you do get tired of winter.
