For my ‘Feathers On Friday, I’m participating in Nancy Merrill’s ‘A Photo A Week Challenge’. This week it’s three photos of the same subject from different perspectives.
Mervin Muscovy duck is quite a striking looking bird who doesn’t visit our backyard very often,
When he saw me watching him, he turned his back, as if to say in his best Greta Garbo voice, ” No paparazzi please. I just vant to be alone.”
Some time later, I spotted him having a siesta just outside my bathroom window.
Wishing you all a splendid weekend.

It’s time once more for XingfuMama’s ‘Pull Up A Seat Challenge’.
Our favourite local wildlife reserve is frequented by many elderly folk who come to admire the birds and generally just to sit and enjoy the peacefulness found in nature. Dotted along the boardwalk are benches donated by grateful families in memory of their loved ones who used to enjoy walking and resting here.
The benches are all very plain and serviceable,
but the view from this one is absolutely wonderful,
and sitting up there on the guard rail was this Little Blue Heron, having a very cute bad hair day.
Happy Sunday to you all.

Mr. GBH poses for the camera. I told him he’s going to be famous on my blog. He replied, “I already am.”
Wishing you all a happy weekend.
How lovely it was to see Rosie Spoonbill down at the water’s edge on Sunday morning. She’s back again today, so I’m hoping she’ll be a regular visitor.
What would Easter be without a Bunny hopping by,
or Mrs Beakley proudly showing off her new brood of ducklings?
Wishing you all a great week ahead.
Mr. GBH has been on his own for as long as I remember, but yesterday it seemed that he may have a date.
It was looking very promising indeed.
However, it was to come to nothing and they parted just good friends.
I wonder if they’ll ever meet again. I’d love to see some GBH babies around the place. Call me a matchmaker if you like.
Wishing you all a very happy weekend.
Cee’s ‘Flower Of The Day’ challenge is open every day. Today is quite cloudy, but my Bromeliad hanging out on my patio, guarantees I always have some sunshine. I call her ‘My Girl’. Do you remember that song by the fabulous ‘Temptations’ and can you believe it’s over 50 years’ old? How time flies when you’re having fun.
Now I have an earworm. 🙂 Happy Tuesday to you all.
A clump of beautiful green water lily leaves shimmering in the sunshine looks so innocuous doesn’t it? But wait just a moment; something is lurking quietly there almost imperceptible unless one looks closely.
Big Al is on the prowl, making not a sound as he glides along. I wonder why his teeth seem too big for his mouth and hang out at the side.
As he comes into view, I can see the sly look in his eye as he scouts around for his prey.
He does look rather mean and purposeful today and I’m sure he won”t go hungry for long.
Wishing you all a happy weekend, but do be careful around water lilies. You never can be sure about what lurks beneath.
For XingfuMama’s “Pull Up A Seat Challenge” this week, I thought I show you two extremes of seating options. This icy ‘bench’ in Antarctica was absolutely the coolest seat I ever sat upon.
After our trip, we flew home via Palm Beach airport, where I found these hot-pink seats welcoming us back home again.
Have a great week, and don’t forget that If you wish to showcase some of the different kinds of seating you’ve encountered at home or on your travels, you just click this link
Lenny Limpkin on the prowl.
Happy Wednesday to you all.
