Description This image was captured in April 2011 at Cedar Hill State Park, Texas. Can you find the ladybug? Here is where I have to confess that I, like about 20% of males, have a bit of a color blindness issue. You may say, 'Well it is easy to see the bug, isn't it?' To which is have to respond, 'Yes, after I locate it again.' I wish I could say that I took the picture specifically because of the ladybug, but if I had I would probably have gotten much closer to the little darling. By the way, that is Joe Pool Lake in the background. I hope you like it.

My wife and I love to travel - usually pulling our little camper, but we made trips to Machu Picchu and The Galapagos in 2007, and 2 weeks driving in England to start 2008. For a retirement reward to ourselves in early June 2012, we spent two weeks in France. We started in Nice and then took a week long cruise up the Rhone River before spending just a few days in Paris.
In January 2014, we spent a fantastic week on the Amazon River above Iquitos, Peru.
I have been taking pictures for over 40 years, so I have quite a variety of images. Check my website if you are interested in some old pix.
