My Bio
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 :( :( :( - I take all my photos using an old, outdated Panasonic camera that has only 5.0 mps & a 10x zoom - which is a real JOKE (as is the auto focus feature)!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.

Hi all. I just want to say Shame On ME for being away for soo long and not thanking people properly for all the new favs, watches, likes, llamas, etc. I have been quite depressed and have spent most of my time alone locked away in my bedroom trying to deal with Life & people in my life who have affected me in a negative way!  I must say... I KNEW BETTER... but we must life & learn, and for me, it always seems to be the hardest way possible! I lost my joy for bird watching and spider hunting for the most part. I allowed someone to come into my life who has broken my heart so I am having a hard time dealing with things right now. I came

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
