  3. Any landing you can fly away from

    1. He has the brakes on
      as his tail spreads long.
      Precision landing on a twig
      but he's happy with his gig.

  5. "Major Tom calling ground control! Just diving in for the attack now chaps! Tally-O,. . . . bombs gone!"

    News: In Cedarville today it was reported there was an aerial attack by the birds. Several cats were seen scattering in disarray in all directions. The President will be issuing a statement shortly.

    1. No doubt he'll blame global warming or some such thing...
      and be more sincere about the bird bombing than any terrorist activity....
      I could be arrested for harboring causes that are bad for the environment,
      upsetting the avian order...things like that. haha.

  7. Of course it should be Major Tim. The UK media is super excited about our new astronaut!
    I got myself a new camera a bit like yours. So looking forward to trying it out. My fringe STILL not grown out. Oh how long will it take? But I got the rest of my hair cut for the funeral so now looking more like my google pic but sans fringe.

    2. You're going to have fun with that camera!

      We call them bangs and they seem to take forever to grow out!
      Mine need to grow a smidge more before they will tuck behind my ear and I can't wait! haha.
      I guess I've been at it since the summer and they've doubled in length...but still! Geesh!

  8. What a shot! It should be entered in a contest. And I love the colours in the photo... I think I see almost every one represented.

    1. It really does have all the colors! Those golden crab apples really make a pretty
      back drop to any photo!

  9. Great shot!
    How many did you take before you got that one?
    I wish my shutter was faster...gee...guess I could look into that!
    Enjoy your meal with the big kids...Italian Meatloaf sounds delish!
    Cheers!

    1. Just one...the next one he's all comfy resting on a branch already! haha.
      Do you have an action shot setting? It looks like a stick figure running.
      Set your camera on that and it helps a lot ...with birds and fast moving grandchildren!
      Have any of those? haha.....

  12. I love this picture. Well done Betsy! You caught it perfectly. I do believe you that you are starting to feel tired. No wonder with so much to do. I am having a very busy week myself. Last night I was so tired that I felt like laughing hysterically and crying at the same time ... Clearly a sign to slow down!!! Haha.
