The Supervisor

As I mentioned recently we have some projects going on around the house. So it's a good thing there's a supervisor always handy keeping an eye on things. We can't go too far astray under her watchful eyes.

BBQ anyone?

I took these shots on a recent road trip. I didn't make this up folks! This is an actual place. (Leave it to the Scots to come up with this one!)

Does this make anyone hungry? (Bet my sis' is thinking about Wilbur's.) This is eastern NC folks. We're very serious about our BBQ around here. And it's not really BBQ unless it's eastern NC BBQ! Everything else is...well, it might be okay, but it's not BBQ.

More Beach Time

Lots going on at work and at home with various projects leaving very little free thought I'd keep sharing some beach pix...

I continue to be enthralled by birds at the beach...all birds, but the easiest to shoot flight pix of are the gulls. All that's required is an assistant throwing food up in the air! Jonathan, is that you? (Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach is one of my all-time favorite books. It's a quick read. Check it out if you haven't already.)

There's nothing quite like the sight of the Shackleford horses grazing in the marsh.While they're feral, you can approach fairly close to them, especially if you're quiet.

I was using some zoom here, but we were still pretty close to them. We were trying to get a better look at the little one lying down.
That white-blond mane & tail was gorgeous! Caught in the act of standing. ;D
He (or she?--we're not that close) had a bit of a Rastafarian thing going...oh my, that mane is something!
Scratching an itch:

Happy Independence Day

Let's all spend a few minutes today in contemplation of what a great country we live in and be thankful for all the men and women who have sacrificed so much to ensure we have the liberty we have.

Have a terrific 4th of July...and be safe!

To Protect and Serve

This is a law enforcement canine in my local area. He's here to protect and serve. But he's also a good boy! And handsome!!! His handler told him to sit for me to snap some pix, and just look at that concentration.Note the tongue starting to loll...
Good grief! Will you just look at that tongue! He's a sweet boy too.
Coming soon: Some action pix of law enforcement K-9's doing their thing.

Tory! Tory!

More Tory, the kitten shots. I took about 10 for every 1 that came out that wasn't a complete blur. This little girl is busy, busy, busy. About ten nanoseconds after racing up the stairs and about 2 nanoseconds before racing back down them, I caught this shot:
Jumping in and out of the laundry basket is a good game, as is attacking people-fingers thru' the slats.
She ran so much she got very thirsty.
Note the drop of water hanging off her chin...she was done drinking and ready to play some more.
