First Photo Shoot

If you read my homeschool blog, then you know DJ has signed up for 4H and chosen photography. I have worked his photography curriculum into his homeschool curriculum. Yesterday, was his first assignment. He had to learn about his camera, and the differences between a digital camera, and 35mm camera. We picked apples for the theme because it is Fall, and we were studying Johnny Appleseed. He set up the props how he wanted them. He had to take close up pictures, then take a few steps back for each other picture and note the differences. Then he had to take a tall shot as well as panoramic shots. One of the things in his assignment book was to make an online photo album. That suits him fine because he has this blog. There are 13 lessons in all, so be sure to check back each week to see them all.

Fishy Monday: Two Tone Tang or Scopas Tang

Today for Fishy Monday I'm going to tell you about the Two Tone Tang or the Scopas Tang.

The Two Tone Tang is a species of tang found in the Indo-Pacific from Africa to Japan and even Tuamotu(Too-a-ma-tu).The adult males and females all kinda look the same,but the juveniles are more pretty with higher dorsal fins and a purplish color.They get their name from there color.The closer to the tail the darker the scale.They are Omnivores,meaning they eat meat and plants.

That's my report on the Two Tone Tang or Scopas tang.I got my info from live and my images from free google pictures.I know the info isn't much but it's all there is.The End.

Fishy Monday: Redtooth Triggerfish

This week we are restarting Fishy Monday,and its better than ever.Sure the fish you've seen before are beautiful,but these fish are gonna blow you away!Were gonna start Season 2 of Fishy Monday with the Redtooth Triggerfish.The Redtooth Triggerfish,also known as the Niger Triggerfish,is found in the Indo Pacific.It gets its name from the 2 small,vampire like,red teeth it has.Unlike other fish it is hard to tell which Redtooth is male or female by just looking at them.They both have blueish green scales and a bright blue tail.But,like other Triggerfish there dorsal fin is retractable like a gun trigger,which is where they got there name from.There main food is plankton.They can sometimes be seen in groups of 10-40 circling the water while feeding.But what are there big red teeth for?If YOU have any ideas what there red teeth are for please leave your ideas in the comment box,I'd love to hear your ideas.Well,there probably for attracting mates,or chewing on hard sponges and corals.

That's my report on the Redtooth Triggerfish for this weeks Fishy Monday.I got the info and pictures from Wikipedia and the video on You Tube.The End.

My Summer Vacation

Today for my post I'm going to tell you about my summer vacation.

My summer vacation was 1 to remember.We swam a lot,were on the rode a lot,and had lots & lots of fun!My 10th Birthday was by far the best one yet.I got 2 amazing games(Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Monster Hunter 3) and we went to Olive Garden to eat the next day.My dad's birthday is rite after mine.Altho,some people think rain on yer birthday is sad.Well not to my dad.we went outside and slid around in the puddles fer at least an hour,The water was lust deep enough for us to belly slide in.A few months before that though,we went to Chuckie Cheese for my sisters birthday.It was so fun getting to go to Chuckie Cheese again.We saw a huge slide with lots of places to hide.We ate pizza and soda and i got a dinosaur dig up kit.I dug up a miniature triceratops! Within the time I was able to master Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Monster Hunter 3.I met some really good friends in online mode in MH 3.If I could pick 3 favorites the would have to be Conicus,Isaac,and Willis.(I only know them in the game,not in real life.)Then,wich I already told you about,my dog Krypto was put to sleep because he bit me.

Well,that's my report on My Summer Vacation.The End.

My Dog Krypto I Loved You

Today for my post I'm going to tell you about my dog Krypto.Krypto was my first dog(WARNING:The following might make the weary sad & even shed tears)and he was a really great dog.He trusted me the most and i let him sleep with me when Mom and Dad couldn't tolerate him anymore.No mater how annoying he may have gotten i always was nice and caring for him.Although,in the process he got spoiled.Then,a few days ago Krypto bit me in the face hard.We all knew what would happen next.We had to......put him to sleep.The next day was very sad,because it was the day we were gonna put Krypto to sleep.My Dad brought him to a vet like place.About 3 hours later my Dad brought him home,wrapped in a bag.We buried him in our front yard,right next to her roses.It was a very,very,very sad day.This post wasn't supposed to happen today.I was suppose to do a post on my Summer vacation,but I wanted to tell you about this instead.

That's my post on my dog Krypto.The End.
