Default Martha - Having a go at 365

#1
Here goes. Took quite a few shots for my first day so it was very hard to choose. Since the butterflies, leaves and beauty berries will be around tomorrow for me to take more shots of them, I eliminated them. But I had some good fortune as I was going in the door after my shoot. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed some ripples disturbing the surface water in a large partially filled plastic container. On further examination, I found a toad swimming for its life. The water was rather cold and the container sides were too slick to for it to climb out. After I rescued it, I put it in the sun to warm up. Since it was cold and exhausted, it was a pliant subject for several minutes.

And, I couldn't resist adding these two for my first day.

For this one I tried several different crops, but contrary to my usual tendancy to post closeup crops, chose this one instead.

Nice start to the 365 Martha.
Neat toad shots.
Like the colorful, chewed-up looking mushroom too.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and encouragement on my first post of this undertaking. Went out today thinking I would get some butterfly photos. There were lot flitting about, but they just didn't cooperate so I was unable to get any that were worthwhile. Did find a lurking spider that would not come all the way out even though I waited for quite awhile. The bee isn't my best bee shot but since it wasn't too bad I decided to include it.

I guess that almost qualifies as a spider shot... for certain viewers sake... we've taken the convention of posting 'spider alert' if there's any extreme close ups... LOL only kidding...
lovely shots again, 'not your best bee' sure looks lovely to my eye, and such vibrant colors on the flowers as well!
