Bleeding Heart

I just love this plant. I wasn't able to have a bleeding heart in Lancaster because it was to dry out there so it's nice to finally have one. I added a texture to give it a canvas look.

Mama Bird

Right out of our front door in the rose bushes we found a empty nest, Yesterday Andy came home and found 2 eggs in the nest and this morning mama was sitting on her eggs. it was hard to focus in on the bird because of the branches but I got a pretty decent shot. I just hope no creatures find the nest and take the eggs.

Without using a tripod these guys are hard to focus on.

Not sure what kind of bird this is but it was pretty with the yellow on it.

Ok im a little freaked out

This was our first snake so far. Steven and I were sitting out back waiting for his friends to get here when I look over and see what I thought was a lizard moving but took a second look and it was no lizard. I was freaking out and kept telling steven there was a snake but he didn't see it until he got off the chair and got closer, I wasn't sure what kind of snake it was and then Gilbert got here and had the courage to go up to it and said it was a rattle snake. I kept running away from it but wanted some pics to prove we had one but then Gilbert got the shovel and tried smashing it and the rattle kept shaking so he striked at it again and killed it. I always said we would get a snake because of the hill behind us but never imagined we would get one within the 5 months of living here and of all snake a rattle snake.

Click on me and i'll bite you.
