Outtakes from last week’s #wednesdaywalk meander down my driveway

Last week I beat the heat, and managed a meander down my driveway for @tattoodjay‘s #wednesdaywalk challenge. Today, not only is it our boy’s 21st birthday, but it’s also a bit late in the warm (80F/27C) day to wander.

Instead, I decided to go through the bazillion shots I took with my trusty Nikon COOLPIX P610 and handy dandy tripod (Amazon affiliate links – thanks for the pennies if you click through and order something…LOL) and pick out my favorites that ended up on the cutting room floor.

So all of these photos were taken in our Durham, NH yard on July 4th, 2018. Oh, and for the technical stuff – I used the Auto Mode setting (my preferred), and I typically bounce the exposure bias around between 0 and -2 step. After I download the shots to my computer, I reduce the pictures by 20% or 25%, crop and edit if necessary, et voilà – they’re ready to share!

 
 

Outtakes from last week's #wednesdaywalk meander down my driveway
An Eastern Comma (Polygonia comma) butterfly landed in the driveway as I began my walk.

 
 
Thin-leaved Sunflowers

 
 
A berry cluster is forming on the Jack-in-the-pulpit

 
 
Ferns growing near the bottom of the driveway where the tiny stream used to be

 
 
The woods to the left of the driveway

 
 
One of the huge granite stones on the property

 
 
A male cardinal landed in the pine trees just off the driveway

 
 
Given how puffed up and silly he was acting, I think he was courting someone

 
 
Daylily amongst the Black-eyed Susans (aka, there’s always that one… lol)

 
 
Do you see the little cave opening?

 
 
Daylilies in the yard

 
 
More daylilies along the driveway

 
 
I spotted this Robin when going back inside, but he was looking elsewhere

 
 
While Sandy didn’t accompany me on the walk (he gets freaked out by the tripod) I had to get a shot of him in his new harness.

Hope you have a happy Wednesday!

  1. You live in a very beautiful place. I loved the cave ‘opening’ and the Jack in the pulpit and the courting cardinal. And the ferny former glen. And your glacial erratic! ❤️
