Looking up and Down

We have been having some amazing skies recently. 
All pictures in this post were taken with the Olympus camera.

I love watching the sky and the capturing the forms and textures of the clouds.


Today I noticed some small mushrooms on my lawn so of course I had to get some pictures. I didn't realize until later that I got a bonus ant as well. 


This post is from my phone so I will keep it short. Enjoy your summer and stay safe.

Great cloud images.

Beautiful clouds photos! Nice mushroom and ant photo, too. We are beginning to get mushrooms sprouting in our lawn too. I'm always amazed at how often I take a photo of a flower and never see the bugs on it until I upload it to my computer.

Great shots!

Clouds are always so interesting, always moving, never stagnate.

Love the mushroom shot. Isn't it great to see an ant, etc. after you shot the photo? It's like a bonus.

Have a lovely Sunday and a great week.

Cloud gazing can be so relaxing as well as an opportunity to take good photos. I like the photo of the ant on the mushroom!

Live the mushroom and its visitor. I am often seeking to catch insects on plants. Good shot.

Great pics, Ruth. I never met a cloud I didn't like! I have some teeny tiny bright orange mushrooms that I have gotten a couple of pics of. Great capture of that ant, too :)

Some great textures there.

I enjoy looking up at the clouds too and saw some awesome skies yesterday on the way to church.

Nice shot of the mushroom.
