The Brenda's Photo Challenge

Butterfly Gardener is hosting The Brenda's Photo Challenge. The theme is "Getting Close Up with Macro." Be sure to go over to Butterfly Gardener to check out the terrific photos. BTW, I've been into using what I've learned in the Paint Shop Pro X2 lessons, i.e., adding masks, frames and matting. Even though I jpg optimized, adding those extra elements makes for fairly large files and possible slow downloads.

Up close on one of the roses my hubby gave me for my birthday.

One of four baby scissortails nesting in our Bur oak tree. Momma was sitting on the fence giving me the what for as I was photographing her babies.

Until next time, God bless.

Wonderful pictures. I kinda got carried away on my pictures framing and so forth too-but its so much fun! I love the baby bird. Lucky you for not getting attcked by Momma Bird! And the detail on the rose is great.

Just wondering if you would be interested in being the next hostess for the Brenda Photo Challenge? Please let me know if you are.
