Blogs that Make my Day

.
We have just received our first blogger award. We have only been blogging for three months and it's a real honor. Thank you Island Rambles, for presenting us with this award. I will strive to do even better in the future. Martha will guarantee that.



the rules for this award are:

1) Write a post with links to 5 blogs that make me think and/or make my day

2) Acknowledge the post of the award giver

3) Tell the award winners that they have won by commenting on their blogs with the news!


I am passing this award along to some of my favorite reads:


1. Marvin over at Nature in the Ozarks really knows how to do a detailed report on the wonders of nature complete with fantastic photographs. He always furnishes me with a lot of links for futher reference. I admire his site, photographs and descriptions a lot.


2. Julie at Pines Above the Snow has a wealth of information on interesting books to read, nature and photography.. If you are not familiar with this site, check it out. It's a favorite.


3. Donald Kinney of "a photo a day" always inspires me to do better with my photography. He is an expert at the use of color and especially patterns. This is a site that should be on everyone's side bar. His Daily Duo is really a fun site filled with wonderful photographs.


4. Kathiesbirds at Sycamore Canyon has one of the best nature and photo walks in the Southwest. I am always inspired and want to grab my camera and go for a walk after a visit there. I wish I had her way with words for describing everything in detail.


5. I would be remiss if I didn't include Duncan at Ben Cruachan Blog. This blog comes from Australia and is a wealth of new, exciting, and exotic wildlife and nature. I love to read this blog and wrap my tongue around the savory names of the flora and fauna. Put this on your sidebar and check in for a change of pace.


By the way, Island Rambles would be in my list of 5 if he wasn't the presenter.

If you don't wish to participate, just know that your are a favorite of mine and deserve this award.

To include the award on your page, just copy the photo and reduce to a size appropriate for your sidebar or grab the award in the sidebar already resized.

Have a great weekend all.

PS: Do you know how hard it was to narrow this down to 5?
Just know that everyone on my side bar is deserving of this award.


Troy and Martha

Troy and Martha, Congrats on your award. It is well deserved and THANK YOU for your kind and thoughtful words, and for nominating me. I am overwhelmed. I would love to have you both go for a walk with me. I love to show my beautiful Arizona to everyone and discovering birds and nature is always so much fun! I would nominate you right back as being one of my favorite and must see blogs. Thanks!

Congratulations on your first blogging award. I'm sure that there will be many more--to reward your artistic photos and adventurous natures. Thanks for passing it along, too. I'm looking forward to checking out everyone's work.

Congratulations on your award and thank y'all for passing it along in my direction. Recognition by peers whose work you respect and enjoy is always a boost for the ego. I apologize for taking so long to say "Thank You". I kept thinking that I'd take care of the whole package of award-related activities at the same time, but I haven't yet found that block of time yet. Thanks again.
