April 12 of 12

Happy Easter everyone. As always, the latest installment of my 12 of 12. Thanks to Chad for the great idea. Head over to his website to see what everyone else did. Today, CD and I went to the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens in the morning to see the Chihuly exhibit in the daylight. I know I posted picture from the exhibit a few months ago, but they were at night. I took a bunch of color saturation pictures that turned out well so I decided to post some of those along with some of the wildlife we saw in the gardens. All of these pictures were taken in the gardens between 11 am and 1 pm. Enjoy!

CD took this incredible picture thanks to my great Nikon camera.

We saw several Hummingbirds in the parts of the gardens with the wildflowers.

This lizard was doing push ups for us.

A King snake slithering away from us.

A Bull Frog trying to blend in with the pond. We only found him once he croaked for us.

We saw lots of butterflies too.

Color saturation of the Sun.

Color saturation of the Mexican Hat.

Yet another color saturation.

Color saturation of one of the two boats in the gardens.

One of my favorite color saturation pictures.

Another of my favorites.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my day. I hope you had a great Easter. Check back next month to see what I'm up to.


  1. Great idea with the colour saturations - gives it a really interesting effect! And it's always good to see more Chihuly, he's a real artist. You had such a pretty day out!

  2. Those saturation photos are awesome! I must try that the next time I'm bored at work ... I mean, working on graphic design projects at work. Yeah. That's what I meant...

  3. Your pictures are great. I love the saturation pictures. Maybe someday I'll learn how to do things like that. Thanks so much for sharing.
