Papillon, the Butterfly a sure sign summer is in full swing. I was walking into the kennel and saw this beautiful Swallowtail sucking the nectar from the flowers. I ran in, grabbed the camera and snapped close to fifty photographs. These were two that captured my eye. There will be more posted in the next few weeks.
August, is a busy time for me because I am always photographing dogs. Look for additional canine portraits to also be added to the gallery.
Enjoy, the warmth and beauty in the days to come. Before we know it, winter will be here.

Welcome July. The past week we have had outrageously high temperatures. There were many concerns about how hot it was with people, let alone all the animals. I know my concerns were with keeping all of our animals and the dogs vacationing with us at Hound Hollow Boarding Kennel cool.
Featured is a charming Blenheim and White Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, her name is Gwen. She’s a difficult one to photograph. Being a “spaniel” her head tends to lead her which makes her always look down. It was my challenge to get at least one good shot, where her nose was not buried in the ground. She is just a very grounded young dog. There are more photographs of Gwen in the Canine Gallery
Be well, until next time.

Summer, has arrived and with it has given us an array of weather. We’ve had heavy rain early mornings and by mid day the sun is shining. Some days it is pure sunshine and blue skies all day. Birds are singing all the time. There are so many species that come to our feeders, including one Hummingbird. It has been years since we’ve seen a Hummingbird here on the farm. We believe it is due to the feral cats, not their food source. I am trying to capture this little bird for you to see.
The beautiful canine above is Reese, a crossbreed. He appears to be part Beagle and maybe some German Shepherd in there too. He’s a true gentleman to be around. He is featured today and is also in the Canine Gallery. The camera just loves him. His dark eyes, eye rim pigment and coat color just shine. I am honored to be around such a sweet dog.
Be well, until next time…..
