  7. Oh how nice that you could photograph a baby crane! I've never seen one, but this one looks so cute. the other night, I grabbed a quick shot of a large bird flying off in the distance. The photo did not come out so good, but it was definitely a crane of sorts. That's a first for me up in these parts.


    Your doggie photos are just wonderful. Gosh, I'll bet Pogo would be thrilled to try something like this. I just don't know if his mom could handle the energy needed to get there and do it. These dogs all look so happy.

    Now I really must get off the computer for a little while. The skies are making rumbling noises. You and Izzi have a fantastic day. Woofs and hugs, Pogo & Edna B.

  9. Nice little fella! Our front yard "prairie" that used to be visited by Sandhills was turned into a park with manicured lawns while we were away. Bummer!
