River, welcome aboard! Nice to see new members joining in.

I'm sure you will find many like-minded folk here. We look forward to hearing what you have to share.

I found my eyes drawn to the red twig dogwood too...and then I caught the color on the finches head. Smile.

Very nice!

I don't have showy milkweed. So far I only have butterfly weed, swamp milkweed, and common milkweed.

Thanks for the welcome! I have been a member since 2011 in terms of "membership" but have not really gotten involved posting (I have been working on a Master's degree). I read a forum post this morning and decided I want to spend more time here with like minded people, and this seemed like a fun way to get started!

Again, thanks for the comments! I like the composition on the sunflower picture too, and just wish I would have had it in better focus for that shot. Then I think the red on the fich would have popped against the Oregon Grape.

I glanced at your member page, but didn't realize you joined a while ago. It was the first I remembered seeing you post, hence the welcome (which still stands by the way). I'm glad you found a fun way to get started.

Good luck on your Master's degree. You know what they say "All work and no play..."...so I hope you'll find time to explore and participate some more.

Goody, goody, gumdrops..
Giving up with but a single entry will give us all a better chance at winning the really cool book! Snicker snicker snort.

EQUILL Slap you aside the head for thinking that way, GET off your tush and make things happen outside the box....outside the box....
outside the chicken coop! I'm still lagging in hopes of fresh snow to play around with an idea in the brewing.

I was going to post some photos but got "Internal Server Error". I am hoping WG Admin sees this and takes action....
