a few to view

Have not got to many pics. worth saving or sharing for awhile. I would guess not getting out much may have something to do with that. But got a few here and there and had some time to kill yesterday while waiting for the kids and I found some birds. I was looking for ducks but... flying rats filled the time just fine. Thank God for digital, it would cost a bundle trying to get a keeper photo with film on flying birds. As if you all didn't know that all ready.

this one I think is best viewed in one shot and not rolled back and forth on the screen so I will keep it a bit smaller.

"Doo, you left your camera at home? Hwood you moron", said the guy with sticky paws. Others have called me that in the past, for other reasons but lets just move on.

Looked like it was going to be a good sunset so up on the roof we went. I may have pulled the colors a bit on this one,at least my wife thinks so But I like it.

Nice tour. I like the three dudes on the posts. The color in the background is great. Your little photo is appropriate for a Sunday. If it wasn't for the feet, he could be the perfect little descending dove.

Ya I know that shane dude rather well. All is good there.

Glad you all like the pics. I was not expecting much with the gulls since I was just killing some time but was pleased when I down loaded them.

Shawn, I have been in this house about 4 years now and the owls have been nesting here during that time. They have been tough just to get a look at, dont think they care for people to much. I keep telling captainshane they are going to feed my young cats to the chicks. Not to long ago was the first time I was able to get a good look at the owls. Soft snow and moving forward only at a strong gust of wind was the ticket. They were sleeping and I got right under them. Once they heard me they looked and left. That is what is going on in this picture. It's the best shot of them so far and it's not all the great

and this is one of the most interesting pictures I have got of them

    • No dave.   Quite sure i'm aware of the equipment I was born with..   And how to use it..
    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Stay classy. 
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
