Flora and Feline

Had some spare time this evening so took camera, tripod and cat out to the backyard.
All shots taken with the Nikon D3 and 105mm macro lens.. ASA 200-800 and varying apertures. Tripod with remote cord.

Mr. Daisy above on his stalking tree and, below, posing by the pond.

Bush honeysuckle is evil, yet pretty.

Above, I get a few cherries every year.

Pondus Remodelus

I dug a pond in my back yard about 10 years ago. At that time the water spectacular was on the right side.... then I moved it to the left side.... today I moved it to the middle. None of this means anything really. I have hastas planted all around the pond at the base of the stones. They will come up in another couple of weeks.... barring a frigid spell. I also insert faux water plants to cover up the intake pipe. I have two kinds of hastas... La Vista and Luego (pausing now for guffaws). All the rocks came from Cliff Drive... don't tell Parks and Rec.
