Look closely, that's the barn bunny my friend's daughter is trying to get close to. In the top photo he's right behind the fence post that's in the center of the shot. In the second he's mid-way between the two posts on the left-hand side of the picture.

I love that my Brit' hound friend refers to the wild running around of her hound as "zoomies." Perfect description! Thanks to the sport continuous mode on my Nikon I am able to capture some great shots with one hand and throw the Kong Frisbee with the other (admittedly not the best throws...but they rarely are!).
Built for speed and ready to launch!

Well, I was very pleased to get those once-in-a-lifetime shots of the baby birds the other day...and the experience of watching--and listening--to them coming along has been fabulous. (They're *so* noisy when mom or dad draw near with food!) But it was my friend who got the "money shot." I like this one a lot...you can really see how the parents hang on to the side of the tree and how far baby will hang out of the hole. You can also see that they've grown so fast that only one baby can fit in the hole at a time!
But take a look at this:
|Hey! Come back! But I'm still hungry!!!|
UPDATE/DISCLAIMER:BASED ON COMMENTS, I WANTED TO BE CLEAR THAT MY FRIEND TOOK BOTH OF THE ABOVE SHOTS! BUT I WAS STILL HAPPY TO BE AROUND TO OBSERVE THESE GUYS.

So a while back I did this post telling you about some birds around the barn: Pileated Woodpecker They're really fascinating birds. There is a couple that have made a nest and hatched some babies. Mo's 'mom' got these fabulous pictures the other day:
Then yesterday I finally got a chance to get some pix of my own. Imagine our excitement when we realized there were two babies in the nest!

There's been a recent request for pix of Willow and Xander. I'm sorry I've been neglecting my blogging duties. It's still pretty wacky around here. Mo's back to chemo three times a day...will try to catch you up this weekend. For now, a few pix...please don't tell Willow that the only picture I have handy doesn't include her head! This was taken one night when I was lying on the bed watching tv (it's on the wall above the chest of drawers) and the kittehs decided to join me. But Xander couldn't leave Willow alone.
