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 back on here today and see I've missed soooo much! I have A LOT to catch up on that is for sure, so I will do my best to thank everyone I need to thank and respond back to the notes & comments I have gotten. Thanks for your understanding. 

P.S. Y'all KNOW there will some spider photos coming!! LOL

BackyardBirder's Profile Picture
BackyardBirder
Jessica
United States
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 :( :( :( - I take all my photos using an old, outdated Panasonic camera that has only 5.0 mps & a 10x zoom - which is a real JOKE (as is the auto focus feature)!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.

Spin Karkat Spin Emote Spin :spins:Many thanks for the faving!!Spin me right round ICON: Owlmethyst Spin :Mass Rotation: Spinny Chair Emote  Hey you!!  Sorry to hear about the heart situation, but if you don't try, I think the results are worse.  I can't say I miss the spiders, well, I DO kind of miss the spiders, but that's okay.  Hobbies come and go as well as everything else in life.  Except wet socks.  It seems like wet socks always stick around, for like, ever and ever and then add ten minutes to that.  I know ten minutes is a long time to add with forever and ever, and I'm not really sure how long that makes it, them.  I think ten minutes longer.  :o (Eek)

Ha ha.. you are too funny... always make me laugh!! Cool Smile  I still wish I had a camera, but just never got around to getting one. I have a few shots I took with my cell phone, but had a hard time trying to upload them on here last week so I gave up. OF COURSE a few were of another groovy writer spider in my flower bed (every year I find one or 2 in there), but the other day when I went to look at her (as I did every morning and night LOL) she had a bee in the very center of her web were she always stays but she was gone. 3 days … still gone, dead bee not eaten. So... something got her. sad  Big bummer for me... until I find another... LOL  So now I watch the 6 hummingbirds flying all around my porch but surely cannot catch a pic of them on my cell phone! Oh well. Hey Thanks for your message. Always a pleasure seeing you stop by!! Hug Hope all is well with you.
