This, That & Some Others

Photos, that is. I'll caption the first three. many little time....

How much is that doggie in the window?


"Have we met? You're kinda cute. What's your sign?"

The crocus below added a welcome bit of colour to Hilary's yard this past spring.

Son #1 found an unusual stick while on a walk. There was a dog stuck to it.

Young birds are adorable. And none moreso than Cardinals.

The lovely female mallard below seemed to be enjoying a beautiful day.

I enjoy shooting at night but am rarely pleased with the results. I liked this next one well enough, though.

Goldfinches are always welcome visitors to my feeders.

And I'll wrap up this lot with a pic of the poster child for Angels With Dirty Faces. (In this case, it's Lincoln, a neighbour of Hilary's.)

Adios for now. Thanks for your time.


  1. Pretty pics, one and all. I love the chickadee talking to the sculpted bird. You could have done a captions contest with some of these. :)

  2. Very nice, and your Son #1 is handsome. He probably takes after you, right?

    The picture of your Son #1 with Benny is also priceless.

  3. I laughed at the little bird seemingly quite taken with the bird figure on the birdbath. The cardinal and the goldfinch were favorites, too. They're all very nice.

  4. Cardinals are abundant around here and they nested in my rose bush and bush beans. Great pics.

  5. Great pics, Frank. I love the night shot of the tree.

  6. Excellent as always. The night shot is a book cover. Up to you to write the story.

  7. Love the chick-a-dee looking through the seeds, almost as if to say: "it was here a minute ago!" They are all great and the night shot is well done.

  8. Thank you for sharing more of your beautiful pictures, Frank. You are an awesome photographer! These are amazing pictures. I could not choose a favorite among them. :)

  9. A wonderful series; they're all special for a variety of reasons. Birds are drawn to the sound of trickling water. The Chickadee seems at ease with the mute and still cousin. The low light scene is gorgeous with varying degrees of light illuminating haze seen through the branches and upon the path and stone below.

    The innocence of a child is priceless and you captured it so beautifully.

  10. Arghh...I'm a dolt. I thought I replied to you good folks already....
