SMATTERED year in review ~ out of order, out of sync but documented none the less!

In updating my blog, I will pop in my favorite photos and rantings here and there. 
They will be out of order and disorganized but I will publish and update this page none the less!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from last year, as awful as last year was!

PUBLISHED in PAPER! ~ OCT/NOV 2013 Birds & Blooms magazine. I was shocked, surprised and elated to have my blue jay photo published in this fine magazine.

I hadn't seen many blue jays that year, and only had a few shots of them. Here is a shot that I really loved, and so did they!



It never gets old being published, and this was my very first paper publication for a photograph I took. 

PHOTO CREDITS~ University of Illinois, Entomology dept~ Monarchs

It was with great pleasure I gave permission to Terry Harrison, to use my monarch chrysalis photo from the bugguide.

 Here is what he wrote; 
Hello Robin,

This is Terry Harrison.  I work in the lab of Dr. May Berenbaum in the Department of Entomology at the University of Illinois.  May and I are putting together an outreach display on the monarch butterfly, and as part of the display, we would like to request the use (with full attribution, of course) of your photo of a monarch chrysalis, that appears as photo # 695322 on BugGuide.  Please let me know if you are willing to grant us permission to use this photo.  Thanks for your time and attention.

Best regards,
Terry Harrison

Of course it is my purpose and interest to use my information, photos, and education to further the promotion of pollinators, and nature in general. 
I was pleased, and felt honored that my photo was chosen.

Here are 2 photos he sent to me, to share the display with me. I think it looks just great. 
My photo is the chrysalis in the center bottom of the top photo, and you can see this arrangement in the showcase in the second photo, with the pictures dead center, second shelf! 


Thank you Terry Harrison for this priviledge. 


GOOD BYE 2013~ a long and difficult year for our family, and now I am back, full swing, full time!

It was a long and unsettling year. Any and everything that could go wrong did, and then some. I won't get into the details as I prefer to keep it behind me.

2014 started out with a band, a good bang, waving good bye to 2013, and greeting 2014 with open arms. Sadly my father passed away Feb. 13th, 2014, but that was to be expected as he was ready to go at almost 90, and it was close enough to the number 13, for it to be just one more 13 THING. He passed peacefully in his bed at home with me, just as he had planned.

My doll sales have risen in great proportion, and I haven't had too much time to get out and do much photography as the weather hadn't been cooperating until very recently.

As the spring continues on into summer, I will be out there seeking out my gymnocarena, along with other less obvious creatures. My father left all his camera equipment to me. It is my goal to teach myself how to use the professional grade cameras and lenses, and to bring you even more wonderful photos, as I grow as a photographer.

Thanks for all the interest in my hobby, and passion. I aim to not disappoint as I pursue nature through my eyes captured in photos.

It has been far too long away from my nature blog ~

during this past summer I have worked hard at refining my photography, mostly people and cats, faces, fun laughter... I have recently begun a small side business, ROBIN SEEBER'S CANDID PIXELS photography for all occasions, but candid's only. No posing required or even expected! though I will at your request, be happy to take some posed photos for you and your loved ones.
