Makes Me Smile - Day 99 #CY365

Sasha makes me smile. Our little Tonkinese gets between me and the TV when she wants undivided attention and she usually gets it. She's the number one diva in our house. iPhone 5s, Camera+ App.

Polly Wanna Cracker?

- This cool parrot greeted us as we arrived at the Ardastra Gardens. Located just outside of downtown Nassau, Bahamas. There is no place quite like the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Center. The 5½ acre park is part jungle, part gardens and part zoo. Canon G11, 1/60sec @ f/8.0, ISO 400.

From 2010 Blog
- My grandson Robert has some long eye lashes. We were at Sandbridge Beach after work today and he and I got dunked by wave. With his eye lashes still wet, I took this closeup while he watches the water. Canon 7D, 1/1000 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 400, 100mm.

The Monarch

From 2010 Blog
- The Monarch is the best known of all North American butterflies. This male is a great example of the species, large with bold orange and black coloring. They are unmistakable when spotted during the spring and late summer migrations. The monarch is the only butterfly that migrates both north and south just as birds do on a regular basis. However, no single individual makes the entire round trip. Canon 7D, 1/640 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 400, 200mm focal length.

Blue Eyes

From 2010 Blog
- Don't you just love those blue eyes! They belong to our cat Sasha. She sits on the computer table each day as I check my email and at night when I'm updating the blog, so I'd thought I'd let her see herself today. Canon 40D, 1/30 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 800, 50mm macro lens.
