A Visit to the Conservators Center

SmugMug Daily Link

Donnie, the boys, and I went to the Conservators Center for the first time last weekend.   I bought a Groupon a while back, and we upgraded it to the Treats and Toys tour.  Over the course of 2 hours, our guide and about 20 guests including us, visited and learned about the animals.  We saw several animals that we haven't seen before.  Pictured here is a Serval.  Most of my shots were through the fence and included the fence.  Oh well.  Still, it was a great experience, and I recommend going. They do have a photographers tour, and maybe sometime I'll go on that.

Google surprised me today by taking my photos and videos and creating this really neat movie.  I am quite impressed!


Gerbera Daisy

A took this beautiful gerbera daisy picture at the Wal-Mart Garden Center in Fuquay-Varina this past week. I had a lovely chit chat with one of the garden center workers as she watered the plants and created some lovely waterdrops on the flowers which appear in later shots. Did you know that this is the 5th most used cut flower and also has coumarin extracts?
