Butterflies, Birds, Trees, and Airplanes

I know what you are thinking. What kind of combination is butterflies, birds, trees, and airplanes? Well yes, I agree it is random, and it is! I had a bunch of random pictures I took and I wasn't sure how to group them into blog posts. So I thought, hey why not a blog post of a little bit of everything that doesn't really relate? So here I am! Random combination of photos. LOL

The butterfly and leaves (tree) photo was taken at Shadow Cliffs Park in Pleasanton, California. The Black Phoebe (bird) photos were taken in my front yard. The airplane photos were taken on the Arroyo Del Valle Trail located in Pleasanton, California.

I saw a butterfly land on the grass as I was taking photos of the solar eclipse a few weeks back. So I adjusted the camera settings and took a photo of the butterfly. If you missed my solar eclipse post, you can find it here.

Black Phoebe (Sayornis nigricans)
So the other day I was bored, so I decided to set up my tripod in my front yard and get some bird photos. I get a lot of birds coming to my front yard as I have 2 parakeets and they spill a lot of food. LOL The wild birds around my house never gets hungry. XD If you want to see the other photos I took in my front yard, check out this blog post (of the Northern Mockingbird) and this blog post (of the American Robin).

The new leaves of spring. This was taken at Shadow Cliff Park.

 So we were looking after a family friend's kid for the afternoon. She was all like, there is an airplane in the sky, take a photo of it! So I did. :P Turned out better than I thought!
