A Patriotic Turkey

The other day as I pulled into my yard I saw 3 female turkeys and this big old male strutting through my yard.  The females were harder to capture as the kept darting off towards the woods every step I took in their direction them.  But this big old Tom Turkey took his sweet time.  Although he could hear me walking towards him he never moved faster, he just kept showing off his tail feathers and moving with purpose (so it seemed) towards the woods.  His face and neck were red, white and blue hence why I call him a Patriotic Turkey.

Today is Memorial Day here in the USA and I thought it fitting to share my Patriotic Turkey.

Coming to Life

Today was another chilly and rainy day here.  However, I did not let that stop me from taking a few pictures.

My yard is starting to come alive again.

Tangled Web

I wonder if the spider (it was a Wolf Spider) that I found in my basement came from this tangled web.  Everything, except for this hole in the container, was covered. It is big enough for that monster spider to reside.

Tangled

Of course I was not going to mess with it to find out what was actually in there.

After they leave

Clementon Park is located in Clementon, New Jersey and has been around since 1907. It is not big like the Six Flags amusement parks but it is great for the local community.

There is a different feel to the park when there are no children running around and having the time of their lives.

Up for a Game of H.O.R.S.E.?

Figured that I would step away from all the vacation pictures for now and capture something different.

My employer provides a lot of extra things for its employees to use to unwind after a mentally stressful day.  We have access to pool tables, foosball, gym, walking trails, tennis and basketball courts.  At any given time you can usually find people busy doing something to take their mind off the stress of the day.

For the past few days I have driven past the basketball courts and saw 2 balls that have been left.  Today I decided to pull out the cell phone and capture a few shots.

This brought back memories of being a child playing HORSE with my brothers and the other boys on the street.  I was pretty good!  I felt like I was the only girl on the street since the other 2 girls were much older and rarely played or even came outside.  So if I wanted to play I had to play with the boys.  I was am a true Tomboy.

What was one of your favorite games to play as a child?

A Stroll in the Park

An assortment of flowers from my walk in the park on Saturday.

The first 3 always make me think of relaxing on a beach on an island somewhere.

Curly Q’s and Stars

When I looked at this flower with its curls and stars, one of my first thoughts was that it would be a great hat for a character in a Dr. Seuss  book.

If you look close there is even a slight line under the petals that could be a frown.  ( Sometimes my imagination gets the best of me.)

What are your  thoughts?

WP Photo Challenge: Inspiration (2)

My Inspiration/My Muse

I stated in yesterday’s post that my grandson Arai is an inspiration for me to take photographs.  Well this morning was no exception.

He was left alone in the living room lounging on the sofa watching kids videos on his Sprout Tablet.  Needless to say within a few minutes he managed to surprise us once again.
