Wordless Wednesday: Don’t Look Now

A modest image of Mr. GBH doing his version of ‘The man in the raincoat’, or is it his Buddha pose?


Happy Wednesday to you all.


Feathers On Friday: Mr. GBH is ruffled

Usually so sleek and smooth, even Mr. GBH can have a ‘bad hair day’. Somehow he still manages to look absolutely gorgeous, so maybe this is just the newest fashion in bird coiffure.


Wishing you all a relaxing and peaceful weekend.

Silent Sunday: Mr. GBH in a reflective mood

“So much noise here yesterday with all that chain-sawing after Irma passed through. Hmm…..I wonder where my breakfast is hiding?”


“Can’t see many big fish here. I think they all got scared away. That’s not good at all.”


“I think I’ll have to try my luck over the other side.”


I hope he found something for Sunday breakfast. Happy Sunday to you all.

My Sunday Photo: The ‘Welcoming’ Committee

It’s been a while since I’ve seen an alligator in our lake, but on Friday, a juvenile ‘gator, probably just four feet long, came gliding in to shore. His approach did not go unnoticed however,  as Mr. GBH, Lenny Limpkin and a representative of the Iggy family had gotten word of his imminent arrival, and were right there waiting for him.


Mr. GBH the self-appointed Chairman of the Residents’ Committee, using his sternest tone of voice, told young Al in no uncertain terms that his presence was not welcome on their peaceful grassy bank. “I’m quite happy to share the fish with you, as long as you’re not too greedy, but you are definitely not allowed to trespass on our territory. I realise that there are many tasty pickings here on land, such as small birds, iguanas, rabbits, squirrels, as well the occasional pet dog or cat, but such creatures are absolutely out of bounds, and I just want you to know that we are watching you. That’s all. You may go now. ” Well, that told him in no uncertain terms and he hasn’t been seen since.

Thanks to hubby who always has one eye out of the window for any interesting activity. He took the photos for me. My eye is healing well after the op, but I still can’t see distance at all. I guess I’ll  just have to be patient, but it’s not easy. I truly appreciate all  your good wishes on my last post.

Happy Sunday everyone.


B&W Sunday: My Favourite Bird

Paula’s B&W Sunday Challenge is to post one of our favourite photos in B&W. Here is my favourite subject, although Sammy Squirrel and Iggy are both vying for second place.

Mr. GBH is doing a bit of home renovation.


Wishing you all a very happy day.



Feathers on Friday: Mr. GBH hard at work

Charlotte of ‘Prairie Birder’ blog has a ‘Feathers on Friday’ Challenge. I’m listening to sounds of hubby hard at work making our ‘nest’ more comfortable, and was reminded of this photo taken at our local nature reserve. Here’s Mr. GBH bringing in more ‘timber’ to weave into the nest, much like when hubby goes off to Home Depot and comes back with the Jeep loaded up with ceiling beams. I’m wondering just how many more loads it’s going to take.


Wishing you all a happy Friday and a splendid weekend.

Mr. GBH poses nicely for the 7 Day Nature Challenge

My blog friend Gilly has invited me to join in the ‘7 -Day Nature Photo Challenge’, and yesterday when I went out to see what I could find for day # 3,  I was happy to see Mr. GBH surveying the lake from his favourite branch. Such an elegant stance, I’m sure you’ll agree.


It’s becoming difficult to find someone to nominate for the challenge, as so many of you have been nabbed already, so please feel free to join in if you have a mind to.

I’m also linking this post to Jude’s ‘March Wildlife In The Garden Challenge’ which changes its theme from 1st April.

We have a lovely rainy Wednesday here in Florida. Hope you all have a great day.
