Here are a few photos from the past month that I meant to post. This was a deer I saw at my place when I was really looking for beavers.
The next few are from work.
I'm a little obsessed with getting a good fern spiral photo. I think I'll have to go to some old forest to find some really good ones.
I'm not usually into tilted photos, but I ended up liking this anyway.
Of course I had to use the rental camera on some hummingbirds.
A tad grainy, but that's cropped down and the ISO is at 2500. It's so nice being able to crank up the ISO!
Last hummingbird photo!
Switching gears (it always seems a little weird to mix nature and food photos, but I'm doing it anyway), here's a crock pot dish I made the other day. It was fine and has potential, but there were various factors that hindered my enjoyment of it, most of them psychological (I was afraid I had left it out too long, that the salsa was too old, etc.). It's a Thai peanut chicken dish, but I would like to try it again before I link you to the recipe.
And here were the Orange Creamsicle Cookies that I made for a couple of departments at work. I thought they were really good with a little tweaking. I added more orange zest, less white chocolate, and I let the dough hang out in the fridge for several hours so the flavors could marinate a bit. (Marie, I got this tip from that chocolate chip recipe you posted, which I still have yet to try.) Try them! They'd go well with tea. I wish I could make some right now.
Enjoy your week, everyone! Thanks for looking.
