I went down to the dock to take some shots of the turtles and out of the sky flies this egret and lands five feet from me (no doubt looking for a handout). I started taking pictures and he posed for five or ten minutes and then took off. Some days life is good!
One of my goals this winter in Florida was to do a painting of a famous place in Tuscany, Italy. With paint brush in one hand, and a glass of wine in the other, I completed that goal this week. A few friends came over for the unveiling. I have not painted in over five years. This was a 1st jab at getting back into it. Hope you enjoy! ~ Dave
As a follow up, here is Mandy after her haircut…sulking! It’s hard to imagine a pooch so consumed with a self image, lol! For whatever reason Mandy needs a few days to recompose herself after a hair raising episode at the beautician. By the weekend the queen of beauty will emerge from her kennel of refuge to reveal the stunner she really is. In the meantime, we must ponder the enigma.
I took Argentos photo as he was heading out to perform last weekend. He stands well over 15 hands and has enough weight to make ten quick pancakes!
Here’s another little guy from the Bird Rescue at Madeira Beach Fl. I’m pretty sure she/he was telling me that the tail feathers are kaput! Of course the other possibility is that he/she was politely telling me to kiss off!….:)
I shot these two lovely gents (or ladies) at the bird sanctuary on Madeira Beach Fl. My grandson was with me at the time and he was both mesmerized and terrified. Fortunately, for us, the buzzards just finished dining on a few discarded hamburgers & fries!
