Give It Away

I wish I had things I could give away to random strangers..... Anyway, here is a super nice person giving away a super neat camera. Yes, I said CAMERA. All my Sunday Stills, Macro Monday, and Wordless Wednesday *peeps* ought to check it out!

And I can't post without a picture, so here is something random.

I Just Love This Cat

She bring us gifts.OK, it wasn't so much a "gift" as my odd, fearless daughter pried it away from her. Why? you may ask...... To take pictures of it , of course.
After some searching of "alabama rodents" I finally identified it as....
a Pine Vole.

I had never seen one before. Have you?

Wood Ducks!

We had some unusual visitors this week. Hello cutie!

Isn't he handsome?

Such a cute couple!

(these are all shots of the same two ducks-- not a whole flock or anything)
According to one of my bird books, Wood Ducks are considered one of the most beautiful birds in North America! It doesn't say by whom. They are in fact quite striking. These pictures (captured by my dear daughter Charlotte) were taken from my garden about 100 feet or so from the pond. They may not be postcard quality but I sure am glad she got them!
