Last of the favorites.

  These are all old shots that for various reasons I count as my favorites.  The one below, well it is just cute.  The deer are always at my feeders and bird baths and I take many shots of them.  Most are just another deer but some I like.

  I got many shots of this dragonfly.  I swear it posed for me and followed me around while I was outside.  I was practicing working on my focus and it proved a good subject to focus on.



    A early morning lazy hike, just a pretty new day


    Now doesn't she look happy, we just had a nice hike


    I actually get birds at my feeders also when the deer leave them something.


    The babies are always so curious about  you so make good subjects, Just watch out for mama.


   I took this picture below years ago with my first 35 mm


    This sour puss looking bird just needed it picture taken.




   I loved this shot from the minute I saw how it turned out.

I don't know how you guys catch these perfect moments to photograph. It's like nature sits around and waits for you to take it's picture! (((BIG HUGS))) -Missy http://journals.aol.com/ma24179/MISSYZSTUFF

These are fabulous!  The dragon fly is cool, love the markings on that one...I could never get a shot of them, they never stay still.  
Each photo has such delicate beauty, I can't pick a favorite, I can see why they are all so special to you.  The winding path & dirt road are wonderful too....:::::::sigh:::::::   Ü
Thank you for sharing all your lovely images with us~

I can see why they are all your favorites!! Love the deer's tongue,lol so cute!! I agree you could sell these. At the Fryeberg Fair in Maine which we attend each year, I saw blue ribbons on photos that were nothing compared to these.

These are all great Julie.  I remember most of them, especially the deer and the dragon fly.  Your first picture with a 35mm looks to be in a very scenic location.

These are all brilliant Julie.  There isn't one I don't like.
As for the dragonfly hovering close?  I found that strange too when I tried to take a photo of one over my pond.  I wondereded afterwards if it was the zzzzz sound when I changed to photo view mode or when my camera made that buzzing sound as I switched off.  I think he thought it was another dragongly over his territory. Maybe it made the same frequency as its wings?
Just a thought.

I hope after I close this comment #1 and #3 will open up fully with my slow dial-up.    The baby deer is wonderful and I can never get to my camera in time when mama brings them in the yard for my apples.   The freeze knocked my apple and pear tree fruit out last year for them to eat.    The walk way through the forest looks perfectly in harmony with the landscape.    The old 35mm has colors that digital does not seem to acquire the same so I think film will always be desired by photographers.    Truly a nice group of photos.     mark

This time a new last photo popped up.   The fall winding gravel road is a nice color change and more harmonious than the usual blacktop.   I like amount of colors in the foreground and how you captured the distance to make it have perspective.   Still, #1 and #3 appear cropped.    Maybe this time?    mark

As ever such lovely photos. It made me think I would add some of my favourites from the last year to the bottom of  my latest entry. Pictures I love but hadn't related to any of my topics. I felt they were to good to stay hidden in my computer, so they're having an airing. Don't think I quite come up to your standards though!!
