Another month, another first Monday.  That means the theme of the Phoneography Challenge is .”Nature”  The challenge is open to anyone who takes photos with non-traditional cameras, such as phones or iPads.  If you want to play, click on the highlighted words and join us.  Since many of us are welcoming spring, or at least waiting for it hopefully, this is the perfect time to immortalize nature by taking some photos of its beauty or to share photos of nature’s beauty past.

  1. Perfection for a portrait of spring’s awakening. Cannot wait to see my first bunny for the season. Guess that you can me a preview. Happy Photo Challenge.

    Love the effect on the last image – like catching him thinking about doing some no good in the garden. 🙂

  3. Real bunny! I’ll have to visit one of the park/wild areas to catch one of these. Cute

    • This was taken when we still lived in a Cleveland suburb. We not only had lots of rabbits but too many deer. Between them and the chipmunks, not much was safe from being a meal and it was quite annoying. 🙂 But they were all cute.

    The last bunny shot has the bunny looking a little guilty about something 🙂
    Beautiful spring photos!

  5. I just love this post. Reminds me of Easter. We are going into autumn here. 😀

    • It’s always hard to think of places being not only in very different time zones but in the opposite season. Won’t be long until Easter. Next year, though, sometime after July, we’ll be heading to your part of the world–New Zealand mostly, with a dash of Australia and Fiji thrown in. Can’t wait!


  6. Aw, he’s so cute! And just in time for Easter! 😉

  7. aloha Janet. classic. spring is sprung in your images. very cool.

    • Thanks very much, Rich. Just did some yard work this afternoon and there are some things popping up, but not much green anywhere yet.


      • it’s a great time of the season tho. when everything begins to change. i like that process. cool that you are in on it from the very beginning. way fun. aloha.

      • It is great season, Rick, and the anticipation of what’s coming is a big part of that. I think many of us have had more anticipation this year than we need, with the longer-than-usual winter and cold. But I’m enjoying each day now, as I usually do, but in the spring sense now.


  8. Emilio Pasquale says:

    Definitely cute. But they eat everything we plant! Can’t see destroying them so we just keep planting after every meal!

    • I know what you mean, Emilio. I planted lettuce up on our garage roof the last few years we owned our house. It was, I hasten to add, both flat and accessible from the second floor of our house. Not only did the rabbits eat things, but deer and chipmunks fought for their share. The deer ate off all my day lilies before they’d been up more than a day. It was quite annoying. And don’t get me started on the chipmunks eating my tomatoes!!


      • Emilio Pasquale says:

        Sometimes my eyes play tricks on me. That last line looked like “And don’t get me started on the chipmunks eating my toenails!!” I’m OK now!

      • I’m laughing out loud at this, Emilio. I’ve had the same thing happen, where I read something I know can’t be right and upon re-reading it, find it’s much more prosaic that what I thought it said.

      • Emilio Pasquale says:

        Good to know! Thanks! I have scheduled for an eye exam anyway, just in case.

  9. Amy says:

    Wonderful capture, Janet! I like what you did with the Picasa 3 🙂

    • From skeptic to convert. 🙂 Thanks, Amy. It’s so much fun to play with all the editing choices just in Picasa 3 and there are so many others with other programs. However, there’s only so much time!


  10. Rabbit are so lovely but hart to catch with the camera. 🙂

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
