I Plan to Take it Back!!!

My yard that is. At one time, I gardened a lot. In fact it became an extension to my studio. I would photograph a client in the studio, then take them into the garden and photograph them some more. Then I became a mom. :D I love it! But something had to go and the yard was it. I would sometimes give it a lick and a promise and that would be all. And look what has moved in during my absence! Well, I have decided to take it back!

Yes, that is a copperhead!!! A very tiny copperhead! I took this photo with my Sigma 150/2.8. It was one of the 1st photos I took with the lens as I just got it that morning. Well, he must have a mama and some siblings around. Ed did kill it. Bro. Jeff was a tad disappointed about that. We told him we would be glad to call him the next time we see one.

Over the next year, I plan to take my yard back. Look here for photos of the progress. Now I need to sign off as I have little birdies on the deck looking for food. (Shouldn't they be looking for fresh seed on their own by now?)

LOL! Yep, DH is going to get mad at me if I don't stop. LOL!!! I just realized, I have a special gift to make for one of my best childhood friends. She turns 50 next week and I have not even started on this gift.

I wasn't sure if that was real or a fake one! Yikes!

Yes Kathi, it is real... I was using a macr telephoto lens, so he looks much bigger than he was, but little tiny copperheads are just as poisonous and yucky as big ones. YIKES!
