    Pat, I saw you stopped by my blog so I had to come and check out yours. You take such beautiful photos and I love your post-processing. I’ll be back…

  11. Pat, we are looking to upgrade from the little Olympus Stylus point-and-shoot. I’m sure your equipment is more expensive than I will probably want to invest in right now — but would you please tell me what camera and lenses you use? Many thanks!

    Great photos, Pat!! You’re bookmarked now so I can catch all of your cool shots. Good eye.

    Thanks for visiting my blog and signing up to follow. I hope to hear from you about my images – your photos show a perspective that is similar to mine in subject but different in approach and I’d like to hear more about that.

    You have a lovely blog and every photo is fresh and unique. I’m also an educator and ought to be retired (I just finished year #31!). I’ll be back to visit often. I especially love your flower closeups with the birds coming in a close second. I had a photo blog for one year and still add a photo occasionally. Come visit if you want. Just google Houston in Black & White blog

    Yep, we are loosing our robins, winter warblers, ducks, and wading birds. Definitely must be getting spring. But we do get to see migrating warblers and vireos and other passerines and some of them will stay to nest down here in Galveston, TX. Lovely picture.
