Beachy Birds

For your viewing pleasure….here are some beachy birds.

Blue Heron on the rooftop.  He is perched on one foot with his claw in the middle of his stomach…actually a little creepy, if you look close enough.

Close up of a hawk on the walkway….pooh and all.

It was a drizzly and dreary day.  The heron reminds me of the wise man on top of the mountain.  Do you think I should have asked him about the meaning of life?

DSC_0313 I think these guys are ibis (s).  They were the closest pictures in the bird book…..Anybody know for sure please correct me.

Photo Challenge -Twinkle -Droplets and Dredge

DSC_0170

Two very different pictures for today’s theme, “Twinkle”.

The first is a shot of a cedar tree with dew glistening on its branches.  I was walking and taking bird pictures last week and this branch caught my eye….too bad the birdie wasn’t in the frame as well.

DSC_0327The second shot is of a dredge traveling up the river at night.  It was rather close to the shore and startled me when it came into my line of sight, since it was so unexpected.  I must admit, the twinkle was brighter in person than in the photo.

Photo Challenge – Gone but not forgotten – Clyde

IMG_0475 (2)

I was thirty-eight years old when I received my first pet.  I always loved cats, but my Mom wasn’t a big pet lover so we didn’t have any at home.  When I was older and on my own, I wasn’t sure I knew enough to be a good pet owner.  Well one day on-line talking to a friend, I mentioned, I liked cats and was thinking about getting one.  His response was “my daughter is moving to a place that doesn’t allow pets, I can drop them off on Monday.”  I became a pet owner.  Clyde and Que.  Clyde was the outgoing fun-loving mooch of a cat.  Que is more of a reserved prima donna.  Que is still with us and even serves as my avatar for Tybee Tabby.  Clyde was the inspiration for my first post on WordPress.  Unfortunately, Clyde passed a little over two years ago.  Gone but not forgotten.  Dang, I miss the little guy.
