[365-157] Toast

I hope so, because that’s what I am. I just have nothing worthwhile to talk about. So I decided to share pics instead. Some are mine, some were taken by other people.

Those who know Hubby and I well may be surprised to know I did NOT take the toast picture (it is from Adam UXB Smith). Why surprised? Because that is so like something Hubby would do. And it’s a picture I would love to share. If you can’t see the toast picture, let me know.

A Hint of Blue Sky

I did take this picture. Photographically speaking, it isn’t a great image, but I like the way it looks. I was out in our backyard late this afternoon when I looked up and saw what you see above. I just happened to have my point-and-shoot camera in my pocket. Hubby looked at me sort of weird when I said, “Look at this cool picture I got while on poo patrol.” (It was not Photoshopped at all.)

Know what this is?


It’s our biggest birdfeeder. All throughout Blizzards #2 and #3 we were feeding the birds. A lot. I think our feeder was one of the only ones around being filled.

You lookin' at me?

This female cardinal is sitting on one of the other feeders. I love the way she’s got her head cocked looking at me.

There has been quite a variety of birds stopping in to feed, but the large flocks of grackles are what really empty the hoppers quickly.

Just a small portion of the flock is shown here.
Fly away home, piggies.

I know the grackles need to eat, too. But they’re sort of ugly. Their numbers are overwhelming. They scare all the cute little birdies away. I do like the next shot, though.

You have just entered the twilight zone...

One of these days I’ll go outside with my tripod to get some good bird pics. Shooting through the sliding glass door just doesn’t work very well.

  1. Oooh, I really like the cardinal shot. And I know you said that the bird pics are taken through the sliding glass door, but I don’t really think you can tell.
