I’ve been involved with photography for 20 years. I have dabbled in landscape, architectural, portraiture and wildlife and nature photography.

I’m now an Author!    My first book is titled, “My Mother Can Do Anything!”.

This is the story of a three legged deer who visited our property for eight years.

I captured images of her with twins, triplets, and singles over the years, and the
story just wrote itself.


I’m very proud of my second book “Being Bob,  the story of a horse.”  Bob has to learn that

it’s ok to just be who he is.  He learns that others appreciate his unique “Bob” qualities.

Thanks for visiting my blog featuring, most often, the visitors that come to our home.

      A big hug to Junior 🙂

  2. Greetings from Japan!
    Thank you very much for following my blog. I am so happy to have discovered yours, and look forward to visit again.

    Congratulations for your 2 books. I imagine they are wonderful, and hopefully they will be available in Japan someday 🙂

    Warm regards,

  3. Hi there, I’m feeling chipper and chirpy and I just wanted to let you know that I’ve nominated you for a Blog of the Year 2013 Award. My post will be published this evening at around 6.00pm Australian Time. Congratulations to you for a creating a truly Wonderful Blog. i just love it.

    1. Did you get a chance to read it? I’m so glad that you care about Mama too! I just think she was the most wonderful creature..I’m glad you found me too 🙂

  4. I’ve been following your beautiful blog for months, today I noticed that my only comments on your blog (about popcorn) have never been confirmed. They were simple words just to share my personal experience with you. Can’t figure out why, I will appreciate it if you let me know the reason.

    1. Well I have to say I don’t know why!! I just got this message TODAY!!!???? I don’t know what is going on! Thanks so much for following my blog and I’m so happy that you like it 🙂 🙂

  5. I can’t seem to leave a comment on any of your other posts??? I see there are many comments left by others, so I know it’s possible. Is it me? 😉 I wanted to tell you that I loved the way you described our country in your 4th of July post. That was beautiful, and we need to hear more stuff like that in this world!

    1. Thank you and Hello! I learned a lot from your post about copyright infringement…I went back to putting my entire name across certain images…Thank you! Would you mind letting me know the name of a few posts you couldn’t comment on? WordPress wants to know…I’ve had others let me know that they couldn’t comment.
      Regarding the fourth of July post…I guess I just felt the need to express to others, the
      America that I experience. 🙂

      1. Hi zannyro,
        I couldn’t make comments on any of your posts except the about page. I scrolled through so many times thinking I was crazy. I’ll try again and send a screen shot to you if that will help. Glad that post helped! Good idea to protect your content.

  6. Hi Suzanne! Just wanted you to know that for some reason, I can’t find the comment box on any of your recent posts. I know they must exist–people are commenting. I scroll to the bottom as always, but there is no place for me to enter a comment. Frustrating!

  7. Thanks for finding me so I could find you… it was obviously meant to be! I’ve only seen your ‘how to grow a squirrel’ post and I’m loving your blog already! That had me cracking up! Looking forward to catching up with your other posts 😀

  8. Nice reading about you

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Be in touch. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may find something of your interest.

  9. Hi There!
    Would you be willing to participate in something we are doing for Susie Lindau on Friday morning? I am contacting as many of her followers as possible. My thought is that we all post on our own blogs on Friday with the same title, “Susie Strong”. The content would say something simple like, We are thinking of you. I haven’t known Susie for long but this blogging world is such a family. I thought it would be nice for her to see this message from as many of us as possible. Her husband is going to be updating us after her surgery. He can tell her or she can see it once she is up to it. Are you in? Thanks, Maria aka brickhousechick

    1. 🙂 Thank you so much Colline! First, Congratulations!! You are so deserving 🙂
      Secondly, I want to thank you very much for nominating me…it means a lot coming
      from you and I appreciate it very much.

  10. Hey there Suzanne, this is just to let you know I’ve mentioned you for the The Epically Awesome Award of Epic Awesomeness! (This, of course, requires NO ACTION on your part. Which kinda makes it EPIC.) I wanted to mention you, because you deserve it, though you’ve probably received it a thousand times – at least! Thanks for being so Epically Awesome!


    1. This is TOTALLY epic!!!! Thanks so much 🙂 🙂 🙂
      You know what? I had quite putting up awards..but because you’re YOU, I’m putting this one up!!! Thank you SO much!

      1. Woohoo! I’ve been meaning to post this for DAYS, but I’ve been flat-out with an EPIC flu all week (since Sunday). This is like my first day out of bed.

        You’re very, very, welcome!

  11. Such beauty that you capture with your camera! I really love the Cardinals…and any friend of Lorna’s is a friend of mine. You are both lovely ladies!

    Take care,

  12. Your book sounds like an good one. Do you have a link to where it can be purchased?
    PS: The eyes of the innocent (of the fox) reminds me of a red fox I saw every morning when I walked across the fields to the school bus stop where I grew up in the mountains of Western North Carolina.

    1. Ohhh!! To see a fox on the way to school! What an experience.:)….For the books, if you scroll down you’ll see images of the books on the right hand side…just click on then and it will take you right to Amazon 🙂

              1. Sri Lanka – I’ve been living here for almost four years but my monkey visitors only came into my life earlier this year when I began my blog and began spending long, quiet, hours upstairs at branch level. There have only been three instances, that I’ve seen – and only one captured on camera – of them coming onto the balconies, though the roof is part of their super highway to the trees further along the ridge! You must drop by to meet Hanuman and his family, I’m sure you’d enjoy them. 🙂

    1. Awwwwwww…THANK YOU!!!!! It means a lot that you thought of me for this award……….I am SO happy that you find so of my things inspiring……..I think I should pass on this award, because I have been nominated for it before….but I THINK I PUT THE WRONG TITLE ON IT, ON MY BLOG….I’m such a dope….but again…thank you, thank you, thank you !! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. Oh course! Yeah I got it before too, but I didn’t know what to do lol! But I was happy to be able to nominate people with it! You are such an amazing person and I look up to you so much as a photographer 🙂 You definitely deserve this award and I’m glad you have gotten it before 🙂

  13. Interesting idea for a blog! I looked at some of your images and they are lovely–especially the animals, and the fireworks. Thank you for following my blog, and I’ll drop by and check on you, too! xLaura

    1. Thank you Laura! Thanks for stopping by..I’m glad that you enjoyed the images….sometimes I travel quite a bit farther out of my “window into the woods”..so you never know just what you’re going to get..:)

  14. I just came from your Website and it’s marvelous. So I’m following your blog … Many thanks for sharing.

    1. Wow! Thanks so much!! I’m glad that you liked the website and I really hope that you enjoy the blog…I kind of zip all over the place, from serious to silly…so WELCOME 🙂

  15. Hi Suzanne:), just wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog with your “Likes” and “Following”, I can assure you that it`s very much appreciated and inspiring! I look forward to continue following your blog as well, I have enjoyed what I found here so far! Have a marvellous day:)

  16. Would it be too forward of me to confess that I have fallen in love at first sight, with you and your blog? Your photography stuns me, I love the way you capture the character and emotion of everything from a bird in flight to vast, stillness. I will return, repeatedly. Thank you for being you!

  17. Hi there… Nice to see you at blissful adventurer. I started going thru your posts and after liking a few realized they are all heart warming, smile inducing and downright funny. Am not so quick to hit follow anymore as I’m trying to maintain a balance between real life and virtual… But just couldn’t resist! Cheers

    1. I am SO honored that you felt comprlled to hit “follow” !
      Thank you for your kind words…it means a lot to me..I’m saving your comment 🙂

  18. I wanted to let you know that I received your book … It is beautiful. What a lovely story and your photographs are gorgeous. I thoroughly enjoyed it and shared it with my family who loved it as well. Thank you so much!! 😀

    1. Yay!! Sorry to be so slow in responding!! Need to adjust my settings, I don’t always catch some comments….SO glad that you liked the book!!!!!! Thank YOU so much!!

  19. So glad I found your blog. I love it and I really look forward to following your posts. I was cracking up watching your video about the squirrel and the fire. Very creative. I would love to get my hands on your book. Just sounds amazing. I look forward to following your posts. 😀

    1. Hi!! So glad that you found me too!! LOL! I’m happy that you enjoyed the silly antics of Baldy and Philippe.
      I have to ask, the book on “Mama”?, or the upcoming book on “Bob”? 🙂 Again, glad that you’re here!

      1. The one on Mama. Actually, do you have your email here? You mentioned that I could email you and you could send a hard copy. I was so excited in my last comment, I forgot to ask. LOL

    2. OH!!!!!!!!!!! You were asking about the “Mama” book!! You can find a paperback on Amazon..or you can send me an email and get a hardbound version directly from me 🙂

    1. That’s so kind of you “wannabe”..it may take me awhile to respond, but I will!! You are SO deserving and I’m flattered that you thought of me 🙂

  20. Hi Suzanne! You’ve just been given the Heart on Fire Award (no picture that I know of) because of your perfectly creative and inspiring blog posts, photos and story lines. I love them all. If you choose to participate, just follow what I did on my post for today, 4/28. Be well and stay blessed.

    1. Thank you Gina!!!!! I will follow up on this, I love following you and always enjoy all of your visits SOOOOO much! And I hear a little squirrel has a crush on you 🙂

  21. I found your Blog via H2o and am fascinated by your bird and small animal photos, they are outstanding. I have recently started to publish some of my photos via a blog and need feed back from professional photographers like yourself, I add a link in case you would like to have a look and give feed back. Thank you I am now following so I can see all new posts you make.

  22. Hi sis, please check out my today’s post, about awards and more… I’ve mentioned you there ’cause you’ve nominated me once ~or twice~ and to show my respect for your work 😀

    1. awwwwwwww..Thank you Rosina..That’s so nice of you!! I will do my best to respond as soon as I can to this great compliment! I’m so glad that you enjoy the blog 🙂 I love all of my visitors, you really brighten my day!


  23. Your pictures are spectacular! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment on my blog. I really look forward to visiting your blog and getting info from someone that has been taking photos for so long. You have a wonderful talent. Have a wonderful day!

  24. A kindred spirit! I live on a farm in South Africa, and love the wildlife that I am able to share my time with. I am writing a book about my encounters, and loving it all! I look forward to reading more!

  25. Hi Suzanne. So you live into the woods huh. That explains those exquisite photos. I do some photo dabbling myself (when I’m in the mood) 🙂

  26. Hi Suzanne –
    I’m here because you let me know you were at my blog and I came to meet you (how did you find me?)

    I promised my spouse that I’d spend less time on the computer i.e follow less blogs because it takes up all my time and I’m neglecting my duties as his partner, but I really like your blog – beautiful photos and stories of the animals who come calling – so I’ll be back.

    1. Hi There! I’m sure I found you when reading a blog that I follow, and you must have made an interesting comment…I can’t remember which blog at this time…but when someone intrigues me, I want to know more 🙂 I’m glad you came to visit! I know what you mean by spending a lot of time following the blogs…I’m trying to make sure that I have my fun and still get other things done…like starting to self-publish my second book! I should have started by now….so you’ve kind of helped get me kick-started! Thanks!


  27. Beautiful photos! Thanks for visiting my blog and “following” me. We have some woods behind our house – I get to see deer (but never a 3-legged one!), squirrels, and once even a bear (eeek!). I hope somebody can give that poor bald-headed squirrel a nice warm hat to wear in all that snow!

    Kitty Hugs

    1. Believe it or not a woman from Istanbul knitted THREE
      hats and sent them to me! In previous posts you can follow the progression of the first photo of this little squirrel. People from all over have commented and been curious as to how I will get the hat or hats on the squirrel, and I am getting very close to posting images of the process I along with my “assistants” are going through. I’m sure it will give you some laughs! Thanks for visiting my blog and let me know what you think of the whole squirrel-o-mentary.

  28. Hi suzanne
    My name is Robin.I am 8 years old.I like the book My Mother can do Anything!
    Oh and I really like the bald headed squirrel .I’m thinking to name It baldy.One more thing
    do you know how the mother got one leg in the front?


    1. Hello Robin! It is so good to meet you! I’m glad that you liked the book! I think calling the bald headed squirrel “Baldy” is a pretty good idea!!

      I don’t know how “Mama” came to have only one front leg.. I think it’s possible that she was just born that way..I think now, that she was meant to be just the way she is so that she could show all of us humans that being different is o.k.. I think that she was also meant to show us that if we have a disability, or problems in our lives, we can work hard and have a good life anyway. She makes a lot of people happy and that is a good thing!!

      You take care Robin! I hope that we talk again!

  29. Hi! I’m so envious of your living so close to nature and am intrigued that you had a three-legged deer visiting you. Wonderful book idea and title. I’ll have to check it out. And oh yes, I don’t know how you found my blog, but thanks for subscribing.

      1. OH!!!!! Well Thank you so much! I hope that you enjoy the book! She was a wonderful part of my life and has turned out to be an inspiration to many! If you ever want a hardbound version, just let me know! So good to “meet” you!

  30. Hello, Suzanne – I don’t know how or where you found me, but I’m very glad you did…and I’m especially happy that you let me know you were there, visiting…because now I know you’re here, too.

    I had told myself a few days ago that I wasn’t going to follow any more blogs…because I am currently reading so many that it occupies so much of my time…and I find that I don’t want to do anything else…just stay immersed in what I have found in my new blog-friends’ corners of the world. And here I am…hitting that “Notify me of new posts via email” button again. Your photos and content are wonderful…beautiful shots of your visitors who come calling. Thank you for sharing as you do. I shall be following…. 🙂

    1. Ohhhh, that’s so nice of you!! I’m glad that you like my blog that much! I’m the same as you, I follow so many but I love them..it’s addictive! I look forward to following your adventures in life!

  31. Thanks for stopping by and following my blog. I look forward to seeing your comments.

    Good luck with your blog – Your woodland photos are truly amazing. Makes me feel like I’m there!

  32. Thanks for following my blog, good luck with yours and well done on the great animal photography (something I’m yet to master).

    I’ll try to keep posting things of interest and will come back to visit sometimes and see how you’re doing. Cheers, Richard.

  33. Glad that you are back because your blog is fantastic! So, if you see a bunch of likes from a bird on a light post… that’s me! 🙂 I can’t wait for the new posts! Happy snapping and blogging!

    1. OH….MY…..GOSH…….Did I never respond to this????????????

      Thank you SO much……YOU ARE SO KIND….it’s probably too late to address this…but I REALLY wanted to say thank you 🙂

      1. Haha, don’t worry. I’m about 3 months behind on accepting awards!! I just can’t keep up…..it’s never too late though!! You deserve it so you are very welcome 🙂

  34. Thanks for stopping by my blog (Inspired Vision)! When I saw that your avatar was a squirrel, I just had to check you out. 🙂 This winter I shot hundreds of photos of a squirrel who visited my second story apartment window every day. I posted a lot of them during Jan and Feb. Anyway, I love your avatar, and I’ve been roaming about your sits…love it, too…and will be back. 🙂 Have a great day.

  35. Hello Suzanne. Thank you for stopping by my blog and following it. Your photos look beautiful. I am looking forward to finding out more about you! Thanks again. Hope you have a wonderful day today 🙂

  36. Suzanne – I ordered your book for my daugher (and myself!) and it came in the mail today. It’s wonderful! The photos are great – the “personalities” of each deer shine through. The story and the photos are put together so nicely. Mama’s story is amazing – and inspiring. Being a mother is hard work – I can’t imagine doing it on three legs. 🙂 Oh, my daughter really loves the book, too!

  37. Suzanne, this blog is just too interesting! Did the hat come and I missed it? I want our friend to self-publish a book of photographs which I have titled “The Cats of Istanbul”. Can you help? I know nothing about how to do this. I just ordered your book. I never noticed it before on the page! Thanks.

    1. Thank you so much for ordering the book! Once nia has gotten the book she ordered she can see if she likes the quality. If she does, than I can give her advice on how to self-publish..I think that is an awesome idea for a book! The hat has NOT come yet..:( Glad you found the book on the site,,but sounds like I need to find a way to make it more visible..Let me know what you think once you get it…love feedback!


  38. Your blog is wonderful! I was honored to receive The Liebster Blog Award, and now I want to passing it on to you.

    If you need information about this, you can read in my blog

  39. Hi suzanne, loved your wonderful series of animal images, especially the silly squirrel series..

    PS. have you been to thedailygraff.com ? I think you can find few similarities there..

  40. Hello Suzanne. I love your images. You have ideas here that I haven’t seen before. I am wondering if it would be okay for me to use some as my desktop wallpaper on my home computer from time to time. My files are not available to others. I like having something beautiful and unusual at start-up.

  41. Your pictures are sweet in my heart.
    You do have a peculiar charming eye, that is – a peculiar mind !

  42. Suzanne, thank you for stopping by my blog! Now, in turn, I am happy to find your blog and am looking forward to following your posts. I love the woods and I LOVE deer so I was excited to read about your book and have just ordered it! Congratulations on being published!

    A friend and I used to take three mile walks in our neighborhood most mornings and often would see a three-legged buck eyeing us from a woodsy lot. Looking forward to reading your book!

    1. Oh MY GOODNESS!! Well thank you! I hope that you enjoy it. Please let me know! If you ever want a hardbound version, just let me know.I’m the only one who can order those unfortunately….I’m SO excited!
      I’m also excited because tomorrow morning I’m going to a school for disabled children and adults and reading the book to them. “Mama”, the deer, has given me so much! Take care, Suzanne

    1. Oh Colline!! lol!! I still have to address the first one you nominated me for! But I will do it this week! You are SO KIND!!!! I am so happy that you enjoy the blog this much..Thank you!!!

  43. Hi Suzanne,
    I’m so glad that you found my blog, so I could come here and see your wonderful photography. i look forward to making more beautiful discoveries on your blog in the future.

  44. I love your beautiful pictures and your kind heart. Animals are such a treasure. You might like the Colonialist. He’s an animal lover, too.
    Thanks for following my blog! It’s sometimes silly, sometimes serious, but hopefully you’ll enjoy it : )

  45. Saw you had been to “see me” so I am returning the visit. Your pics are absolutely fabulous and I like the easy style of your writing, not to speak about the understated humor…Will be back! Anna

  46. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and leaving such a nice comment. I am glad you did, otherwise I might not have known what a wonderful blog you have put together. Your photographs are charming, I love all of the creatures and you capture them so well. You are so talented! Alas, I am not a photographer, but I do enjoy taking pictures and sometimes telling a story.

    Take care,

      1. What I did was copy it (you can copy it from my post) and then past it. To show it in your sidebar, go to widgets and select the image one. You can then insert the url that your find in the image (you find this by right clicking on the image properties). Hope this helps 🙂

        1. O.K., one more plea for help…I really haven’t done much of this, which is now very obvious..How do I type in the blog sites so that when clicked on, people will be taken directly to their blog? You’ve been just great,,thank you!

          1. Highlight the name of their blog then click the link button (it looks like a chain) then you can add in the url of their website. It is then set up to go to their site when people click on it 🙂

    1. So sorry I missed your comment..I do feel lucky to live where I do..There’s always something interesting happening…Love following your blog! Take care.

  47. Hi!What a wonderful blog you have 🙂 I love photography so I am definitely looking forward in reading your posts! I love landscape, wildlife and nature photography they are my favorite! I will stop by your website 🙂

  48. I’m very touched by your comment….sometimes I find myself taking my “visitors”
    for granted and I kick myself. It’s such a gift to have a “bubble” to view wildlife from.
    I love your posts and look forward to more! YOU let me see things I never would and I’m fascinated. Best Wishes, Suzanne
