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.

Bush honeysuckle is evil, yet pretty.
Above, I get a few cherries every year.

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.
