Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. Another week has past so here are a couple more selfies.

I’m going for a serious look this week.

The shutter noise is disturbing my nap.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We can’t believe it’s been a week since our last post. This time we are coming to you in living color.

We apologize if we haven’t been around much or commenting either. Our mom has been busy this week taking care of our Oma who got a new hip installed over a week ago. Oma is doing great with the help of our Aunt Colleen who is staying with Oma. The bottom line is mom has been away a lot and trying to keep up reading all of your blogs too.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We love doing selfies and it’s always fun to be outside but for dark colored dogs like Millie it can be difficult to stand out from the green grass. That’s why our dad used the infrared filter to process her pictures to turn the dark green grass white.

Am I running or just laying in the grass?

I love laying in the grass.

For Walter no infrared filter is needed but he still looks good in black and white.

I’m always happy when I’m laying in the grass on a nice day.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We had a break in our hot summer weather for a couple days this week. It’s always nice to be able to spend time outside as a family. Mom was taking pictures of all the bird activity with her big lens and dad was taking pictures of the flowers around the yard. We were just hanging out and sniffing around the yard to check to see if any rabbits, squirrels or chipmunks were around. After all that exploration there was time to lay down and enjoy the weather.

I always love hanging out under the katsura tree.

Dad thinks this is the best picture he has ever taken of me. I’m keeping my eyes on the bird feeder in the perennial garden.

I’m looking forward but my ears are listening behind me.

We had a great time hanging out while mom and dad went on a photo safari in our backyard. When you have as much property as we have there are lots of things you can find to photograph. Today’s pictures were from dad and you will see some of mom’s pictures on Wild Bird Wednesday.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. After spending a long day outside recently this is how we spent the afternoon.

Sun puddle snoozing is the best

I love the extra cushion of mom’s pillow.

Do you mind? I’m trying to nap here.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie & Walter here. We enjoyed a wonderful day hanging out in our yard today. It was relatively cool and dry so we didn’t get hot.

I’m always keeping my eyes peeled for chipmunks.

It was a great day to be outside but dinner was late.

Hi everyone! It’s Cindy here. Today I’m thankful that I have a new camera too. It’s the same kind that Charlie recently purchased, a FujiFilm X-T3. I also picked up the XF 100-400mm lens. (Remember you can click on any of the images to see a bigger version.)

A few years ago I switched from a Nikon to an Olympus camera that allowed me to take videos of the dogs. What the Olympus didn’t have was a great ability to do bird photography and I realized that I missed taking pictures of our feathered friends.

I’ve been inspired by Maggie & Cammie’s mom’s beautiful bird pictures and just knew I wanted to do it again.

To be honest the old Nikon was very heavy, especially with the long lens needed to do bird photography. The new FujiFilm camera and lens is much lighter and with all the advancements made over the past decade you get a better image too.

Don’t you love my underbite?

Do you have any treats for me mom?

There is also an advantage to using a long lens when photographing the dogs. Most of the time you are so far away they hardly know you are taking their picture.

I’m thankful for my new camera and hope to bring you many great pictures and videos.

We are joining Brian for the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
