Photography, Weight loss, and Walking...

I have got to start practicing with my photography again. Every since I took the photography class I have stopped taking pictures of wildlife, my favorite passion. I have been taking pictures of little white churches but I have slowed down doing that. We have been seeing a lot of deer and I hope this means a great deer season for Farmer. Our deer meat lasted until May this year and that was great. I hope that the Farmer gets plenty again this season. I got a picture of two fawns that we have been seeing over close to Troy NC. They are so cute. I did not get them standing together but here they are. 

I was surprised that they turned out clear. I have noticed lately every other picture I take is blurry. Like the picture I posted last post. We went over to the pasture a couple of days ago and we have been noticing two hawks flying around and catching grasshoppers or something. But overtime I have been lately I have not had my camera with me. Well yesterday when we went I had my camera and I got a picture of one of them sitting in the grass eating. 

Isn't beautiful

I tried to load a video of all of the grasshopper jumping in the pasture but it will not upload. I have never put a video on here before not sure how to do it. 

Well I am proud to announce that I finally got under 200 pounds. I am so proud of myself and I truly hope that I can keep the scale moving in the right direction. 

I have been trying to walk a little more and eat a lot more veggies. I walked 5 miles Saturday.

I have two prayer request. My moms sister in law is not doing good. She is very sick with COPD and other health issues. Also please pray for the Farmer's uncle. He has been diagnosed with small cell lung cancer and has only been given 7 to 17 months to live. 

Thank you for stopping by.
