For the Birds…

You may have noticed that the Wordsmith Studio prompt for this week is Birds. The first one is a turkey vulture. I think they look cool cause they are big and have red heads. The next one is a hummingbird. If you've ever had hummingbird feeders, you know what they sound like. Every time I hear one, I duck for cover. They sound like the loudest, biggest bee you've ever heard in your life. But they look awesome, with their wings flapping so fast that they can hover in place and dart around. Some of them, like the one above, also have pretty ruby throats. The last photo was a total fluke. I was taking a picture of a squirrel stealing seed from the bird feeder (you can just see him on top of the feeder), and a grackle flew right through my line of sight. Of course, with the camera up to my face, I never saw the bird. It was a little scary when I looked back through the photos I had taken of the squirrel.  We love birds here at my house. We have more than 15 feeders and regularly see finches, hummingbirds, doves, titmice, woodpeckers, grackles, robins, bluebirds, cardinals, blue jays, chickadees, and probably others that I just can't think of right now. The birds are just starting to come out and I'm looking forward to watching them all summer. Happy Writing and Photo Fun! Becca♥  

Spring has Sprung… I guess

What? This isn't what you think of when you hear "Spring"? Just let me say, "Me neither." Alas, it is officially Spring here in WV and this is the weather. It actually makes me tear up a bit. *Sniff, sniff* Well, I guess I'll just have to look at the photos of others' Spring over on WordsmithStudio.org for the prompt this week, and dream of warmer days... Happy Writing and Photo Fun, Becca ♥

October Photo Challenge Day 18: Made Me Smile Today

Today, I was writing at my laptop while the kids, Baby Girl, 2, and Baby Boy, 3, played in the game room. When I looked around the corner to make sure they were okay, this is what I saw: [caption id="attachment_478" align="aligncenter" width="600"] Toddler Hide n Seek: "Found You!"[/caption] He was crouching behind the open cabinet door and she was pointing at him, saying, "Found you!" It was so cute. They play hide and seek sometimes with their big brother, who is 13. Baby Boy really likes it and, apparently, wanted to share the fun with Baby Girl. ;) You can find the whole list for this month's photo challenge here or over on the right --->;.
