A Cow and a chicken at Middleton Place. A couple of years ago we were visiting Middleton with our kids and they got the chance to milk this cow - our youngest stood a little too close to her head while my wife was getting them to pose next to the cow - apparently the cow didn't care for that much and knocked her down with her nuzzle...cue the barnyard drama...
My wife was in the right place at the right time - she was taking pictures in the butterfly garden when this hummingbird appeared - an incredible shot!

Watercolor sketch from up on the terraced hill at Middleton Plantation looking down at the Rice Mill. Same structure as here and here. I'm really fond of that little mill for some reason...
My wife snapping photos of gators at the rice fields at Middleton Place - Alligators were everywhere.
Here's my wife's shot.

Recently my wife and I took a day off from work and headed over to Middleton Plantation. We got the kids off to school and arrived at Middleton shortly after it opened - it was great because the weather was perfect and there was hardly anyone else there at all. While I spent the morning walking around sketching my dear wife shot photos (she wanted to try out a new lens). So this week I'll be posting a few of her photos along with some of my sketches from our little trip.
