Hello, welcome to my personal photo blog....

I just jumped onboard with the Mirrorless technology!
An ILCE Sony A6000
The Sony E-mount kit lenses - 16-50mm f/3.5 and 55-210mm f/4.5
And I added the Sony E 30mm f/3.5 Macro lens.

I also have a Canon SX50HS.. for those Moon shots.. heh.

I started this blog to upload my own photos so that i could participate in other photo blogs to submit to. Nothing more, nothing less.

I just like taking photos of a lot of things I find interesting.. mostly flowers. I also have another blog "Phlower Power" to show off my flower photos.

Photo Blogs I submit to are in the side-box. I hope I have encouraged you to join in..

Enjoy.......... Ellen

Community Photo Challenge- Animals & Pets

The Bloggers Community Photo Challenge until March 3rd is Animals & Pets.  Go read the guidelines and submit your best shot.

These are my submissions.. the first one is for the Challenge.  The rest are just shots I couldn't resist posting.
As usual, click on the photo to see it larger...

This first one is a Chipmunk.

 And, of course, the next two are Bears.

You can see these guys at the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary at Orr, MN. 


  1. Very cute chipmunk...Is the bear wild??

    1. Bears at the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary are wild. No fences, no cages, just an elevated deck to take pictures from.

  2. Aww - I love Chipmunks. I think they are much cuter than squirrels. Great photo!

  3. Hey, sorry I'm so late commenting...very cute chipmunk..but what is that animal next to it? A weasel???? Yes, the bears are very cute too! Smiles, Maria from Seattle.

    1. HI Maria,
      nah, I think it's a weathered tree limb masquerading as a weasle! A weasle wanna-be. ;)
