Here are several mostly unrelated photographs that I've taken while practicing with the Canon EOS Rebel T3i.
A neighbor's Sheltie, two houses away.
A pony among draft horses. The larger horse next to the pony is a draft horse foal. I had to shoot across two pastures to get this picture. Someday, I hope to get a better photo, showing the leadership role that this little guy seems to play among his much larger peers. Of course, he's at a bit of a disadvantage when they pair up to scratch each others' backs.
Storm clouds in the east, lit by the setting sun.
Rain collecting in a mushroom in our back yard.
Daisy-like flowers next to the water's edge at Ouabache State Park.
A cropped section of the previous photo, showing a bee on one of the blossoms.
Another shot of the same group of flowers.
My photo doesn't do this flower justice. It was a tiny fuchsia-colored flower growing in the grass at Ouabache State Park.
That's it for now. Back soon with more.
Hope everyone had a great July 4th. For those of us in the United States, that date holds a special significance.
