Day what?

 Long day today. Came home to check out blogs for relaxation; I have so many witty, wise, and talented friends to follow. 

First blog up, my friend Claire's. She was issued a challenge by Petra to post something. I have to be true and admit I found it extremely funny, intended or not. Then I got to thinking "I have photos too!" So searching I went. Couldn't post roses as that would be copying to closely. Couldn't post most of my lily photos as some were already used in the SP forum for birthday wishes. Onward I clicked, back and forth, photo after photo. Why I wondered do my arms quiver so when taking a photo? The camera doesn't weigh that much. Blurry frames without end.  After a half an hour of back and forth comparisons I think I found the perfect ones for my blog. If not, at least anyone interested will know I am alive and kicking.

Before I add the photos I need to set the stage. One of my favorite writers says it better than I ever could.

The Fly

God in his wisdom made the fly
And then forgot to tell us why.
Ogden Nash

Go ahead - enlarge the photos. Have to admit for such an annoying creature, they have beautiful colors. Come on, admit it. I won't tell anyone.


  1. Birdie,I am not sure our flies are that colourful. I certainly have too shaky a hand for photos so always need my DH to do mine.

  2. Wow B, you actually make them look pretty! instead of black annoyances! For all your shakiness, you take some mighty fine pictures. SO glad my challenge to C inspired you too :)

  3. What lovely flies you have in Wisconsin!! Or maybe it was that the photographer only took pictures of his best side!! You have to love a photographer that does that!

  4. Birdie the Bug Lady has such a nice ring to it, don't ya think? Great camera work there too, B :)

  5. How did you manage to actually make a fly look cute? squished it 2 seconds later....haaaaa!

  6. This is a VERY COOL and GREAT shot!

    I agree with Claire..Birdie the Bug Lady. See, that way you wont be called a Dunderhead anymore :) {hugs}

  7. know how I feel about flies!! 'Nough said!! Remember my desk target for flies? ew ew ew!

  8. I believe it's time for you to update your blog, young lady!! :-)
