Joey's Portraits

This little man is going to be 8 years old this fall.
He has puppy dog eyes, and he knows how to use them!

He is the most sensitive of my children, and is vocal as well. This guy knows how to emote!

He is the most affectionate of the bunch, and a good singer to boot--both things that are treasured qualities to a mother.
He is my hardest worker, and will plug diligently along on tedious tasks until he is triumphant.  Go Joey!

I love him infinity, which is little-boy-speak for SOOOO MUCH.

My Life in One Picture:

(Click to enlarge)

At certain points in your life you strive for different things.  At some points you try to be as gloriously wonderful as possible in every way.  And at others, you just try REALLY hard to make sure all your kids survive to adulthood.

BUGS and Other Inescapable Draws

I can't help it.  I love to take pictures of bugs.  *Sigh*  I know you all come to my blog for pictures of bugs, right?  I, of course, recommend that you expand each picture and salivate over the amazingly intricate little creatures that surround us (until we kill them).

I was all focused on this flower, ready to shoot, and this little guy zoomed in for a cameo and departed right after the click.  I luff him...er, her.  All worker bees are female, did you know that?

Geez, go find a roach motel, right?  They were like miniature June bugs.  *Pretty*

Well hello there!

You are not quite as inconspicuous as you think.  You are practically Farnsworth-house green.

Ooooh, my favorite bee shot ever!  And that is saying a lot because I have a BILLION!  You're welcome, you only have to see 2.  Wait, 3.

I kind of like this one too.  Face to face with the Pollinator hard at work.

Be grateful, be very grateful because I did not post all my millions of cactus flower shots.  Ok, maybe just one. 

This picture makes me feel like chocolate is coursing through my veins.  Ahhhhh....
