So yesterday my desktop computer fell off my desk and died! All I could hear playing in my mind was the Bee Gee's song "Tragedy"!! I took it in to the computer shop to see if it was fixable... to at least recover all my hard drive data and what is really MOST precious to me, all my photos... but NO such luck!!! The hard drive is fried!! This means I have lost EVERYTHING: all my SadieMae photos, and all my photos posted on here, etc!!! I am beside myself with sadness over this!! Then a ray of sunshine came blazing in on such a dark day for me. My new, wonderful boyfriend took me to pick out a new desktop and a laptop! He bought them for me! If he hadn't done so, I would have been LOST in darkness for who knows how long! I HAD to have a computer for work.. and to be able to connect with the world, you know. I've never wanted a laptop before, but that is what I am using now until my desktop arrives on Friday. SO.... I will be getting by until I can get my life set back up during next week or so on the new desktop. Thank God for people who love us!! :)


So I've grown tired of looking at MY EYE as my avatar here. Apparently it has wandered over to someone's house, broke in, drank all his o.j., & given him nightmares! Anyone have any ideas of what I can do for my avatar????? Don't suggest I make something cute because I cannot make anything but TROUBLE. Thanks and Your Welcome!!  :)
I'm kinda excited today! So this morning I was out in the yard feeding my bluejays and I was just about to go inside when my gut kept telling me to go check out that "bush" that I took the flower photos on yesterday. So I went and grabbed my cell phone & walked over to it. I noticed many more white flowers blooming and then I saw on the very top of it a big moth. I went and got a tall step ladder & climbed it to get a better look at the moth. BOY! What came next really excited me! This bush has several Sphinx moths on it!!! I love them! Also some bees, spiders, more bug eggs, etc., but I'm most excited about the moths! I'm posting my photos now. :) I'm soo glad I listened to my gut and took at look at that tree today! :) I almost missed out of seeing these beautiful moths!!
So today is the FIRST Saturday I have not worked in over a year! A YEAR! And what am I doing with myself... absolutely nothing but house chores and walking out on my land.. with no camera but my cell phone. Ho hum... but I did find a little something interesting. I'm going to post a photo of it. :) WELL as soon as the site allows me to that is! It's messing up again today on me. ????
So people keep telling me that my eyes look "sad" or that I "have sad eyes". - What's up with that? - Do you think they look sad in my profile photo here? I really try to hide such things and thought I was doing a better job at it than I obviously am. Maybe if I post the photo in color it will look better?? Maybe it's my half attempt at a smile?? I dunno.
Ha Ha.. Cell phone to the rescue today while watching that groovy zebra striped spider in my flower bed! We had a really bad storm blow through here last night that downed trees and knocked out the power, etc. While doing clean up in my yard this morning I checked on those 2 spiders. They are both fine, but the girl has gotten big. I posted 2 cell phone pics I took of her. I may be down without a real camera, but I'm not out YET! :)


BackyardBirder's Profile Picture
United States
I love many different styles of art! Although I have no talent to draw, paint, etc., I am most passionate about photography of birds, other animals, and nature. My all time favorite subject was my precious SadieMae, who turned 20 this year (2016), who also had to leave me on June 2 of this year. That broke my heart!! :( :( :( - I take all my photos using an old, outdated Panasonic camera that has only 5.0 mps & a 10x zoom - which is a real JOKE (as is the auto focus feature)! The things I do to get close up shots... are ridiculous! :) As soon as possible I hope to get a new, nice camera because I can only imagine the better quality photos I could achieve with one! Or if I had a photo shop program I could maybe make my photos a little better, but all I can do is crop some of them. Sad but true! I'm just NOT technically inclined! So until then...

I am not much on being social (out in public) these days. I used to be such a "social butterfly", but that taught me a valuable lesson in life back in 2009. I prefer to stay by myself in the peace & quiet. When I'm not working, I'm outside in my back yard or near my home out in the country bird watching. I love birds! Especially bluejays and woodpeckers! Note: some of my photos I noticed says taken 2005, 2009, 2013. Some were taken before those dates, but that was when I transferred them onto the computer I am currently using.
