I made this photo last August and first presented it as a lustre float wrap during the month of October in the Oakley Auditorium Gallery at Ivy Tech Community College-Wabash Valley in Terre Haute, Indiana. It is on display through February at the Halcyon Art Gallery in Terre Haute. For exhibit I titled it “A Tenacious Nature.”

Window Cling

This is the photo I mentioned a few posts back that I entered into a contest in September. It did not place but it was juried into the “Trees and the River” exhibit that ran throughout October at the Vigo County Public Library in Terre Haute (French for High Ground), Indiana.

Riviere Haute (French for High River) was my entry for the annual photo contest sponsored by TREES Inc. I made this photo of the Wabash River during the April 2013 flood at Fairbanks Park in Terre Haute.

Captured this camouflaged critter warming up in the morning sun atop a garden statue in my front yard. Maybe the fact that it hears through its belly explains why I was able to sneak up or it?

I used the Fujifilm Finepix T555 I bought my daughter to take on her summer class trip. The pocket camera has 16 megapixels and a 12x zoom. The grasshopper has tiny single lenses in the thousands x2 and a 20x broad jump.


This lorikeet is every bit as beautiful as the one in the previous post. I love the markings on the breast and underbelly of this one as opposed to the solid blocks of color on the first one. I hate it that I did not capture the bird’s tail. :(

Met this beautiful rainbow lorikeet Saturday at the aquarium at Newport on the Levee in Newport, Ky. (across the Ohio River from Cincinnati).
