Seeds at Sunrise

Yes, these are the same seeds from earlier this week, but at sunrise instead of sunset 🙂

This time, the rising sun was so bright behind them! I thought they might come out in silhouette, but I wanted the sunlight glowing through them, the way I saw it. I think I got my settings right, so I am very pleased with this photo!

Buttercup is a great dog! She does get worried when her boy is missing. This weekend he and his brother and dad were all off doing Boy Scout activities, leaving Buttercup home with me.

She kept a close eye on me, and stayed near by, wherever I went. This afforded me several opportunities for nice photos, like this one taken at sunrise Sunday morning.

I wanted to take photos at the pond before the dogs stirred it all up, so she and Zookie were staying on the pond bank, patiently awaiting their turn in the water. When they got in, they had great fun! (photo coming tomorrow)
