Scribble Picnic



One of a Kind
This is Izzi our Mini Australian Shepherd.  She is a one of a kind dog to us ... she has bought so much joy and energy into our household and we love her for it.

Wild Bird Wednesday


Eagles in my Back Yard

A young male eagle showed up in my tree with a fish ... our lake is still frozen but, obviously, there are some open water areas where he can hunt.  



He is "feaking"*his beak to remove food that is on his beak from his meal ...



And now, he is cleaning any scraps he can find off of his feet ...

Ah ha ... arrives an adult female. Are they a pair ... not sure :)

The young male leaves ...

Only to return in a few minutes with another fish ...



Arrives a Juvenile (guessing a female by her size) ...


She too has a fish and proceeds to eat it ...

and feaks her beak when she is finished ...

And now there are three ...

And alas ... a 4th young male arrives on the scene ... I am assuming this is a family group as there are other eagles flying by but showing no interest in these four ...


He too has a fish to eat ...


And then there were four ... 

There is more to this story ... stay tuned for next weeks post :)

Scribble Picnic


Mushy
My first try with water colors and I used black ink for definition ... have you ever had a shoe sucked off your foot by mud?  I have ... it was fun at the time, but my Mother wasn't happy when I got home, Ha!

P. S.  Happy Valentines Day everyone :)

Blue Jay


Dipped into the archives this week.  I do still see the Blue Jays in the area, but they aren't hanging around my empty feeders :(

Scribble Picnic


Lets Dance
My parents were wonderful ballroom dancers and when I was knee high to a grasshopper, they taught me to ballroom dance too ... It is the most delightful, enjoyable form of dance to me.  Saddly there aren't many dance partners available who can ballroom dance today, so it is becoming a lost art, at least in my life ...   But, I love  just the memory of it :)
