As a child, I remember many times falling asleep to the gentle call of a Mourning Dove. I really love its song, sad or no!

Blood Moon
This was the best I could do with the 55-300mm and it was the first time I shot in full on manual mode! In fact, it was the the only way it could be captured. Anyway it was so cool to see how brilliantly it shone before the shadow was cast.

I Know He's In There! I Just Know He's In There!
This little fox was sniffing out a chipmunk by our garage. Talk about throwing yourself into something. There's not one cell that is not sniffing out Mr. Chipmunk!!

Lady Merlin
Saw some species of Merlin in the garden this afternoon, that is, this glorious, 80F afternoon! This is not a common bird in these parts. But a few days ago, we received the awful news that my old Regional Mgr. died suddenly and unexpectedly of a stroke. She was only 61yrs. She hired me shortly after we moved to Vermont and was a wonderful mentor.
We both shared a love of the novel, "Mists of Avalon" and were both from the Prairies, she from Kansas and me from Manitoba. Today I couldn't help but think she had something to do with that Merlin showing up in our yard. (Didn't get very sharp shots, but can anyone identify what species it might be? guess is that it's a female Prairie Merlin which would make it even more fitting!!)

I want to say thank you for all the great content producers, plussers and sharers and share a circle myself, but i deleted a couple of profiles beacuse of not circling back or even share the circle or inactivity for more than 60 days.

I added mainly people convincing with their own content and sorry if i accidentally did not include one or the other ;-) If i did so and you already follow me, plus the post and let me know. But i reduced the circle a little bit by deleting accounts not active for more than 60 days or didn't engage in any form.

If you want to be added in future versions of this circle please follow these steps:

1. Make sure you have already added me into your circles
2. Plus, Comment and Reshare the original post to public (URL below) and don't forget to include yourself ;-)

The Fox and the Crow
After I took this photo was reminded of the old Aesop Fable:

  "A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its
beak and settle on a branch of a tree.  "That's for me, as I am a
Fox," said Master Reynard, and he walked up to the foot of the
tree.  "Good-day, Mistress Crow," he cried.  "How well you are
looking to-day: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eye.  I
feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as
your figure does; let me hear but one song from you that I may
greet you as the Queen of Birds."  The Crow lifted up her head and
began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the
piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by
Master Fox.  "That will do," said he.  "That was all I wanted.  In
exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the

    'Do not trust flatterers.'"

But, hey, if you'd like to leave a nice comment, I won't complain! heh...

Never Mess with a Mama Fox
Saw our neighborhood fox out hunting this morning. There's nothing like the concentration of an animal while they are hunting. Stay out of the way!!
Wait while more posts are being loaded
