ONE WORD PHOTO CHALLENGE – HUMMINGBIRD

ONE WORD PHOTO CHALLENGE – HUMMINGBIRD

This Week’s Challenges: August 13 – 19 (OWPC & WW)

***

This is the only photo I have of a hummingbird. I never see them here, so this one I took when we were in Ft. Davis TX, at Indian Lodge.

I also have a little pin that looks like a hummingbird. I’ve had it since I was a kid, and that’s what I always called it.

First is a tarantula. I took this picture when we visited Ft. Davis, in south Texas. The large spider was walking along in the parking lot at our hotel, the Indian Lodge. We named him Terry. He was a cool dude. 🙂

Next is a prairie dog. Here in town we have what we call Prairie Dog Town. It is a large field, where there are lots of the little critters. People come out to see them and listen to them bark. They’re really cute, and actually they can be found all over town. We even had one in our back yard once or twice.

SHARE YOUR WORLD – WEEK # 3sywbanner

Today I’ll be answering the questions from Cee’s “Share Your World – Week # 3”   http://ceenphotography.com/2016/01/18/share-your-world-2016-week-3/

I’m also posting this for Linda’s “Just Jot It January” challenge.   http://lindaghill.com/2016/01/19/just-jot-it-january-19th-climate/

Q1 – What’s your favorite piece of art?

I like all kinds of art. I appreciate that anyone can create a piece of art, whether it is simple, or elaborate. It could be a painting, a sculpture, poetry, prose, crafts, or mixed-media, and if it makes me feel an emotion, I love it. Three artists I admire are…Khalil Chishtee (creates amazing sculptures using plastic bags – my favorite of these is called “Pursuit”), Kristen Cummings (creates portraits using jelly beans, and are astounding), and Claire Duguid (portrait artist who’s art is incredible). I wanted to post a picture of each, but not sure of copyrights.

Q2 – What made you smile today?

It was a day of no big laughs, but I’m sure I smiled at something, if only that the sun was shining and it was a bit warmer.

Q3 – Which place do you recommend as a Must-See? Please state which country, state, province, etc.

One place I recommend is Fort Davis, TX. I really want to go again. It is in south west Texas, close to the Big Bend area. There is a place to stay, called Indian Lodge, camping area, nature trails, and there is the old Fort itself, visitor center, bird watching opportunities, black bears, deer, and javalina to be seen. It is also right near the MacDonald Observatory, one of the largest telescopes in the world. There are ‘star parties’ and gift shops.  The area also, is close to Marfa, Texas, where you can observe the Marfa Lights. We saw these and they are very spooky. And, the climate is great, being warm to hot in the summer, and receives an occasional rain shower, and a dusting of snow in the winter.IMG_2049-0IMG_2048IMG_2050-0

Q4 – Complete this sentence…When I was younger, I used to…

I used to like riding amusement part rides, but not anymore. They make me too dizzy!
