How'd That Get There?

Headed over to my mother in laws house this evening.  I took the camera to try to get some shots somewhere other than my yard, which doesn't have much that I haven't shot already. 


I have tremors in my legs, so trying to focus on a small object, usually takes more than one try.  I don't always know what I have, until it's on the computer.


I'm going to post a few photos.  (leave now if you bore easily)  You will notice that several are very similar, I was trying to test at different distances, as well as focus on a specific point.


After I got them on the computer, I noticed a few things I hadn't seen.  See if you can spot them... obviously I need my eyes checked!



















Did you spot the extra green, that I didn't see when shooting?  It's in more than one shot.  Let me know if you find all three!

At first I didn't think there was anything out of place, and then I spotted it in the last picture. That things hidden quite well, you'd have to get in close.

That last picture is awesome Ms A, I didn't see it that quickly in the other picture though, in fact I had to scroll up again to see it. It's seriously amazing how beautiful all of these photos are too, your camera is actually of the highest standard, it's great how clear they all are.

I was thinking that my eyes were bad then I got to the pictures with the cute creature (I can say that because we don't have them here).
I had a giggle when you said you were head to your MIL house because every time I go to my MIL house my legs tremble too. Mainly due to the fact that I HATE going there ;o)

Gigi said...

I didn't see it at first either!

Gigi said...

I didn't see it at first either!

Betty Manousos said...

oh yes! i just spotted a lizard in the last picture.
awesome!

Hartwood Roses said...

That little guy is VERY well camouflaged! You can almost hear him saying, "Peek-a-boo!" (Love the shot of the snail shell.)

CiCi said...

It is nice to hear you enjoy taking photos. Your mother must have a great yard. I can see what might be little bugs on a couple leaves. Is that what you are referring to? Nice pictures, all of them.

Ami said...

I saw it in the pink flowers, but what I noticed was the tail, took me a 2nd try to spot his head. Or hers.

(The only real way to tell if a lizard is a boy or a girl is to put one in a dress and parade it past other lizards. The ones who say 'hey baby hey baby' are boy lizards.)

It looks like you're enjoying your new toy. :)

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I saw it in the last one, then went back and found it in the other one. You are fabulous at photography now!

Which lens were you using?

TexWisGirl said...

i do like the anole. :) that snail shell is WONDERFUL!

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

No I didn't see it until the end and had to go back and find him/her again. Gee that was fun. :-)

George said...

It looks as if you got a couple of pictures of the lizard. I guess his camouflage work pretty well.

You're doing the right things to learn about your camera -- taking lots of pictures with different settings and comparing the results. I think you're getting excellent photos.

Sally said...

These are wonderful! You're doing amazing with that camera. Keep up the good work; I love seeing your photo's. :)

Annmarie Pipa said...

oh my gosh! If I take up photography you will be responsible. i really love your photos.

Choleesa said...

I LOVE the mushroom and shell.

Nicely done!

Lisa said...

Oh, my goodness - that's funny! I didn't see it either (until you pointed it out in the last shot) but when I went back and looked a second time, I found him. I love that - I think it's make your amazing photographs ever more amazing!

WOW-A-PA-LOOZA!Love your lizard because they were everywhere growing up in the South and i miss them up here in the PacNorthwest and your FLOWERS!!! What an art to have them so sharp, not in a breeze and assuming you hand held your camera, even better! DID NOT NOTICE HIM EITHER until reading comments, what a nice lizard...nice, nice lizard and Really NICE, AWESOME PICS!

Nellie said...

Well, I didn't notice anything on first glance. Lovely pictures, though!

Star1 said...

Great pic..yep..i see the little green lizard..Mine are all brown here

NCmountainwoman said...

Isn't digital wonderful? It's hard to remember the days of film when we could not shoot with abandon. Nice photographs!

So. Cal. Gal said...

That is so cool! You DO have to look close. lol! I love how most of these have a 3D effect. Either that or I need my eyes checked. ; )

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I can't find it in any other shots.

Deny it or not, you have a knack for photography. These images are impressive.

The whole time I was looking for aliens in the pics. I didn't know I was looking for extra color.

Farida of In Love With Sunflower said...

I love the snail photo! Everything you took is looking as if it was taken by a pro :P keeping on taking photos Ms A. God bless! :D

Karen said...

I love the snail photo too!!! and that little green guy.. great captures!... mushroom is awesome shot also...

Nancy Claeys said...

I have to admit I didn't notice anything unusual. But my eyesight is horrible!

These are great shots. But would a tripod be helpful?

Dr Zibbs said...

Great photography!

Megan Adamson said...

Love your photo's...even though I had to look a few times to see all three of them! ;)

Kathleen said...

I love all those photos...didn't see anything out of the ordinary until the last shot, then I had to scroll back to catch the other two. Absolutely awesome photos---keep up the great work. I love your blog.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh such great pictures!! That one pictures really shows that extra green!! He really blends in.

Barbara said...

These are wonderful! I told you you were a natch! I guess I need to get my eyes checked - I only spotted two 'extra greens'.

Peggy K said...

Great pics! I missed the little green thang in the first two, so I had to go back to find it!!

And if these shots are what you get while dealing with leg tremors, I can't even imagine how awesome your pics will be once you get the shaky legs to behave!

Deborah said...

I saw the little critter right away. I don't really know what that says about me. I usually miss the big picture? :)

I love all of them. The little doggy is especially good.

Love these!

Katherines Corner said...

every photo is absolutely beautiful, just like you!

Pat Tillett said...

I spotted all three! That guy sure does get around. Nothing boring here! Nice photos...

Lynn Proctor said...

loved these wonderful shots and the extra green :)

Help! Mama Remote... said...

I'm going to go with pics 8,11&13. Love the.pictures and the dog is so cute. My husband's client is giving us a dog and at first it was the one you have in the pic. It starts with a p. But now we may get the puppy instead.

ZielonaMila said...

Fantastic photographs, I like such views. I am greeting

Kathleen said...

Hi again

You mentioned in your comments about enabling my email---what did you mean? I am really new at this blogging stuff.

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

Gorgeous! I see him! It tickled me because I took a picture of a tiny lizard hiding on one of our flower stalks the other day too : )

Shammickite said...

and he thought he was hiding!
Little does he know that he's been spotted by almost 50 people!!!!

BlueShell said...

YESSS...I can see all three "extra green" things!!! See...that's why your photos are NEVER boring!!!
Fantastic photos, that's what you've got here!
So sorry about your legs trembling! My knees hurt, because I have arthritis....
Nice to come here!

Furry Bottoms said...

Those are terrific, terrific, terrific pictures! And the dog steals the show, naturally.
