A HIP Shopping Trip

'Row 5'....Remember that Sue....Wow!  This is Close!  I hardly ever get to park this close at 'Stuff Mart'!
I begin this Hip Shoppin Trip with a quick run through the newly setup Garden Center.

I'm not looking to buy a mower or planning on visiting the Digital Photo Center,
 but it's 'Appropriate for a Photo Shot From The Hip!

I will be needing some of this after the Mesquite Trees bloom. 
That's kind of a 'Rule of Thumb' here in Texas....No More Freezes when the Mesquite Blooms!

Big Boys!  They can withstand a Cold Night if Covered!  I might plant them before the Mesquite Blooms!

Got Enough! Don't Need Anymore!  But I always take a Quick Look!  It might be on SALE!

Just want to be sure Ya'll know where you are! 

I know I said in the beginning I wouldn't be visiting the Digital Photo Center! 
I lied!
Just Lookin'!!!  I Love my HipShootin' NeatONikon!!!

Okay...now to my LIST!  I need a Bunch of Bananna's!

Some of This Green Stuff!

Sorry Ya'll....I couldn't resist! 

The ONLY person who noticed the Camera! 
Not even the CheckOut Clerk noticed....she was busy asking about why I was buying Soy Flour!

Another couldn't resist shot!  I can just imagine the conversation...
"Sir, no amount of Blowin' will give you his look."

Looks like several of us are done and headed for the Exit! 
Have you seen this movie?  I'll wait for it to show on TV!  It' won't be long!
Now to find my car!  What row was it?  I remember it was close!

I thought it was right next to the cart rack!!!!!

Found It!!! Thank goodness for that Horn Button!
I'm All Done for this Hip Trip!
So I'm going to Link Up with

Weekend Cardinal Watching

An occasional Cardinal will fly through the back yard, but I never seem to be in the right place at the right time for a 'Bird Watchers Shot'.
 It took a Weekend Camping Trip, a Cardinal StakeOut Spot and several hours to get these Friendly Texas Red Bird Shots.

Shooting with my NeatONikon CoolPix L100 with 15X Zoom about 25 feet away on an overcast day.

The females were more difficult to capture as their coloring blends into the background. 
The last two shots of the female were from about 15 feet away during a break in the overcast sky.
To my surprise, the birds pretty much ignored my presence as long as I was still. 
They flocked to the thorny bush and the watering trough in waves of 5 to 10 at one time.
They hung around several  minutes and off they would go again...giving me twenty minutes or so to Shoot This.....

 ...which explains the un-cropable  'plops'  in the background.
And This Shot just cause it's Pink and I got antsy while waiting for the next wave!
