Picture-A-Week 2020 - Week 11

Recommended Posts

Pictures taken between Monday, March 9 and Sunday, March 15.


Rules: See above

That's it. This isn't a contest.

All photos taken this week are welcome (not just cruising).

Prizes will not be awarded. Discovering the joy of photography is the prize.

The idea is to get folks out using their cameras for more than vacations and toddler birthdays.

Post one. Post many. Up to you.

Have fun with your camera and share your fun with others!

For several years we have been talking about preserving all of the old favorite family recipes. Many of these exist only in our collective heads and some of those heads aren't, shall we say, as efficient at retaining recipes as they once were. At first, we were just storing them as documents to be printed as needed but that became an idea to produce an illustrated family recipe book. This year we actually started the long process of making every recipe we listed, photographing the process and further documenting the step-by-step procedures. In this week’s picture, you see a step in the process of making my favorite breakfast shortcut; Egg Bites. We have identified about thirty-five recipes to include in the book, so this project will be with us for a while.

Love the tall ships -- never tire of looking at them in various ports.

I second the request for details on the egg bites.  😁


Well, I guess it's a good thing that I finished the page spread for them...




Here's the recipe in case the text is too small on the full page:

You've now given me 2 things to do.  in the future, steal your idea and create a family recipe book.  Immediately, make some egg bites.

Well finally got around to sorting my weekend wildlife shots again - so here are some from this past Saturday:


Six-spotted fishing spider (that sounds awfully scary! And it looks it too):



Green iguana closeup:



Glossy ibis in flight:



Snowy egret flying past - normally, they have yellow feet and yellow at the base of the bill, but during mating season, those sections turn a deep orange to blood orange color:



Yes - if you stand in the wrong spot or don't pay attention when walking, the wood storks CAN and sometimes DO hit your head, with their wingtips or sometimes with the branches they're carrying back to their nests.  As you can see, they fly awfully low, definitely at or below the head level of people walking on the boardwalk:



Shooting directly into the sun, I liked the diffuse backlight and glare effect of this great blue heron flying low:



A male boat-tailed grackle showing off his iridescence:
