Monastery Photos

Made it back to the monastery for a couple hours today.

Stairway to heaven?

In case you haven't noticed yet, I'll always take a turtle photo given the chance. Looking at this one more closely, it appears to me that this turtle is an attack survivor. Would have taken the chance at a muskrat photo today also if the camera had been on when I noticed his wake but he was underwater by the time I was ready.

Not such a tangled web

If people on the internet can be believed, this is a poison ivy vine

So why do they call it shagbark?

What camera are you using? Nice photos.

Turtle pictures are always good. They don't move as fast as other creatures. Good pics!

It's new--a Fujifilm FinePix S1800. Though it has lots of capabilities, I'm just using it on Auto mode at this point because I'm not a photographer--just wanted a combination of a good zoom and low price and this was the best deal I found.

Judy, I just recently moved up from snails.
