October 2, 2010

I cannot believe October is finally here.  I've been waiting and waiting for fall and it's finally here!

I got a nice surprise yesterday.  Joe came home with a new lens for my camera.  I can't wait til tomorrow to get outside and play with it. 

If anyone knows what kind've tree this is I'd love to know!

I snapped this from my back porch with the new lens!

This is the fence line between our yard and the neighbors. 

Maverick LOVES his pepper!  He cracks me up because he loves to mix all his vegetables together and then give a stout douse of pepper!

Cathy, I can't believe it is October either nor can I believe this wonderful weather we are having.
I'm not sure about the ID of your tree. But like the photo.
Like Ranger, I love pepper!:)
Have a great weekend playing with your new lens!!!

I wondered if it was a shrub, or vine in a tree.So your lens must be a better zoom. Getting closer is nice, but sometimes that closeup comes when you have it on. Hence the 2nd camera on my shoulder.I just got a FLIP video, tiny and easy to carry.Not sure when I will use it, but it looked fun.Looking forward to seeing more shots with that lens, what a nice gift.

Oh it is definitely a tree, I had one in my yard in another city but couldn't get an id on it there either. Yes, I LOVE my macro shots. I wonder how quickly I'll be switching out between the two. I have a small hand held video too but the boys use it a whole lot more than I do. They make movies with their stuffed animals and lego characters!
