We are in California for a family wedding and the sun is setting on a totally different part of the horizon than what we see in the winter. Grabbed this snap a couple hours ago at the usual hangout for sunset photos – Hueneme Pier.

Went to visit my wife’s uncle – their backyard is a wonderland of plants. Packed the macro lens this time and had some fun seeing what I could see. This month’s image is an alpine geranium (I think). Which makes me wonder – if an alpine flower grows at sea level, is it still an alpine flower?

A recent trip took us to visit family in Colorado. While there, we visited the town or Marble. The Marble Mill Site is the location of what was a massive fabricating mill constructed over 100 years ago.
The marble quarried here was of excellent quality and was used for the exterior of the Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery.
The details: Fujifilm X-E2/xf 18-55 @34mm, f/9, 1/600 sec ISO 200
Pretty much didn’t go out and photograph anything in February, but I remembered this photo from Delaware a couple years ago and thought I’d use it. This is one of those stories that starts out “There I was…”
Feeling pretty good for having seen the foxes, some herons and an egret, I was wondering what else I could come across when I spotted this Luna Moth clinging to a tree. It was quite a ways off the trail, but the color stood out very distinctly against the bark.

Made a trip to a reptile zoo this month, but the photos I ended up with were rather uninspiring. I was hoping for a photo of the lunar eclipse, but despite being able to see the moon before going to bed last night, the skies were thoroughly clouded over this morning.
So… what do I have in the yard I can make a picture of? The spruce tree in the front dropped these cones which kinda looks like a reptile and I found a couple boughs out of the Douglas Fir on the back yard to rest them on, let’s see how this looks…
