Feathers On Friday: Bird On The Wire

Looking out of my window at breakfast, I saw this female Cardinal patiently waiting for her turn at the bird feeder. He husband was busy eating around the other side and as soon as he was finished, she flew on to have her share. (I had to take the photo through the screen cloth so as not to spook them.)


It brought back memories of my mom when my sister and I were children and how she always made sure to serve my dad first at dinner. I think it was to show that she respected and appreciated how hard he worked to provide for his family.

Wishing you all a very good weekend.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Alone

I haven’t done one of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenges in a while, but when I saw this one, I thought I might be able to find a few pics for it, and I was right.

Here’s one of my favourites, taken at SeaWorld in San Diego. Nap time for this adorable baby Polar Bear. For now, he’s just so cuddly, but can you imagine that one day he will weigh well over 350 kgs?


This pic reminds me of Leonard Cohen’s classic song “Bird on the wire.”


Shamu, the amazing six ton Orca is probably singing, “Wow, look at me now!” as he does his solo act for the adoring SeaWorld crowds.


Another very formidable creature, is the Bison or American Buffalo, seen in Yellowstone National Park. These animals can weigh anything from 318 to 1,000 kg, so you really don’t want to get too close.


A little smaller, and a far less deadly opponent, is this cute seagull, spotted in Cornwall England. I wonder which “little dickie bird”  he is, Peter or Paul?


This Red Cardinal, is making the most of his time alone with the bird feeder here in Florida.


This Red-Eyed Tree Frog in Costa Rica, looks very comfy as he naps on a cool green leaf, oblivious to all the tourists snapping his pic.
