Week 44! Can you believe there are only 8.5 weeks of 2014 left! The year has flown by.

This Gulf Fritillary was fearless! It came to my Lantana while #1 Grandson was out in the yard playing. I had my camera nearby so grabbed it and captured quite a few images of it. I made this image yesterday afternoon.

I wish more critters, and insects were as brave as this one.

This image I took a month ago while birding in Carmel, CA. They’re so little and cute!

Snowy Plover

Here’s one more. A Snowy Plover watching two Sanderlings foraging in the sand, and I’m sure it has an eye on me too.

We had some amazing clouds yesterday which I wanted to shoot over at the coast. Fortunately, my friend Dali was thinking the same thing. We met up then headed over the hill. Which in local speak means going to coast. The hill by the way is actually the Santa Cruz Mountain Range that those of us in San Jose cross to get to Santa Cruz.

The amazing clouds got all mixed up with the fog and blocked any color that might have been, but it made the sky dramatic and moody. Walking back to the car we were stopped by this scene. The Sun was a gorgeous ball of orange that dropped into a small pocket just above the cliff which framed it beautifully.

It was a lovely end of the day.

This is the Eclipse at its maximum in my area of Northern California. I cropped in about 30% so it looks larger than it really was.

This is my 5th and Final image for the 5-Day Black and White Photography Challenge.
It is an image I made in the Summer of 2012 while hiking the staircases of San Francisco. By mid afternoon the fog started to roll in over the hills.

The building is Old St Joseph’s Hospital which was built in 1928. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. Today the building is a Condominium Complex.
