The rabbits in my backyard are not skittish in the least. In fact, in my opinion, they are quite ballsy! They only take off when they absolutely have to. If I see a couple of them in the backyard, walk out, have a look, they don’t move. They just stay quite still and wait until I leave. If I approach, they’ll take off if I get to within, say 10 feet or so, then only go far enough to get…

A case of right place, right time, looking in the right direction. This is Emma, a barn owl. Emma wasn’t quite satisfied with the perch that they had placed her on, so she opted for a bit of higher ground. She took flight and landed on the roof.

This one, I really like. On the screen, it looks magnificent. However, it is teaching me a few…

Born under a bad sign. I’ve been down since I began to crawl. If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all. Bad luck and trouble’s my only friend, I’ve been down ever since I was ten. Born under a bad sign. ~Albert King Some of you may remember my post from last year entitled: A serious Oh sh&#!!! moment.

Saturday Morning Gratitude is like a flashlight, it lights up what is already there. You don’t necessarily have anything more or different, but suddenly you can actually see what is. And because you can see, you no longer take it for granted. M.J. Ryan – Attitudes of Gratitude Quite frankly, there are those moments when I am simply ‘there’, filled with gratitude. This was the scene, Saturday morning, just off of the coast of West Palm Beach, FL. Taken from…
