Some Little Creatures

Thirty years ago, 
when I fell in love with a boy
and he fell in love with me right back,
I didn't know that one of the greatest gifts he would give me
would be his home state of Oregon.

We've never lived here,
but we visit each year and I love this place.
I love it's great-big-huge-see-forever sky
and all the stunning vistas that go along with that.
But I also love it's little creatures.
I so enjoy my time with my camera, the tiny birds and the dragonflies.
Here are some of my favorites.

Posting a tad late...this vacation stuff is really messing with my blog schedule!!


  1. Amazing captures!!!

    I never thought I would love Oregon as much as I do. When we moved here 5 years ago, I was very reluctant. In the past year we have returned to both Vermont and Michigan - states we considered someday returning to - only to realize how much we love Oregon.

  2. Your photos are amazing. I kind of had to squeeze my eyes shut at the dragonflies, but they are all fabulous moments.

  3. I love your photography! So pretty!

    I have lived in Ohio my entire life, but my husband is from Missouri. It amazes me how much I love the state of Missouri. There is so much to offer and it is gorgeous. We like to visit once a year and have even considered moving.

  4. So glad you have this honey hole of a place that really restores you, but awakens you, too! It's so nice to get away so no need to apologize for enjoying the time off.

  5. my favorite views....the goldfinch is my favorite. they are so handsome this time of year!!

  6. These are all so beautiful! Love the dragonflies! Great detail!

  7. I love your memory art. Oregon is gorgeous! And I feel the same way about the boy I fell in love with and the state he gave me. What a gift!
