365/365 Congratulations! We Made It!

Brandi and I want to say Congratulations to all of our Flickr Friends.  I accomplished what I set out to do.  I wanted to complete a 365, use my little Kodak M575 for all of my shots and not miss a day posting to Flickr.  I did just that.  I took 4988 photographs this year, according to my camera.  Congratulations to all and again Thank You So Very Much for all of the views, comments and encouragement!

355/365 Rooster

I told you that you can never know what you may see around here.  We went out earlier and I spotted this rooster in the neighbor's yard but didn't get a pic.  We came home and a couple of hours later he showed up again.  Not sure where he came from.  And really I don't live on or even near what you would consider a farm. :D

353/365 Horse And Rider

You never know what you may see out of your front door around here!  Wish it could have been a better shot, but I'm not disappointed with this crop.  I like the 3D effect too.

347/365 End Of The Presidential Dollar Coin Program

Seems the Presidential Dollar Coin Program will be ended soon.  Presidential dollar coin victim of budget crunch.  Here is an opposing view.  Administration gets it wrong on Presidential Dollar Coin program.  Just finished up this folder and was looking forward to beginning the 2nd volume next year.

343/365 Black Widow

This came down from the ceiling at work and landed.  I didn't realize it was a Black Widow until I reviewed my shots a short time later.  Needless to say I was on the lookout for it the rest of the day when I found out.  I enhanced this to bring out the hourglass.

341/365 Critter On The Countertop

This critter was on the blinds earlier and I didn't get a good shot of him.  Came into the kitchen and saw him on the counter.  Didn't realize he was getting a drink until I was editing.  Happy Bokeh Wednesday!
