American Robin Feeding Young.    Hello All, I worked very hard to get this shot, I hope you like it. Please feel free to leave comments, reading them and visiting your website makes my day:) :)    View at X3 if you would like to really see Mom placing the worm halfway down the babies throat!!        The American Robin or North American Robin[2] (Turdus migratorius) is a migratory songbird of the thrush family. It is named after the European Robin[3] because of the male's bright red breast, though the two species are not closely related. The American Robin is widely distributed throughout North America, wintering south of Canada from Florida to central Mexico and along the Pacific Coast. It is the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan, and Wisconsin.[4] It has seven subspecies, but only T. m. confinis in the southwest is particularly distinctive, with pale gray-brown under parts.

05/09/11 - Wilow the Red-Tailed Hawk  The boys and I went to Noah's Landing  in Coats, NC yesterday for their Mother's Day special event.  Along with the usual animals, the wonderful people with the Wildlife Rescue Center in Sanford were there.  If I counted correctly, they had 8 birds onsite yesterday including this beautiful red-tailed hawk named Willow.  As usual, I spent quite a few minutes taking pictures of the birds and talking to the volunteers.    Link to the Noah's Landing gallery:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Noahs-Landing/Noahs-Landing-050811/16970760_jTvbsT#1283151623_d2tLKHr  If you missed the picture of Johnny with the ball python on Facebook, it's here:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Nature/May-2011/16865229_xX2Jk5#1283085882_92NPr6n   And with the tarantula:  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Noahs-Landing/Noahs-Landing-050811/16970760_jTvbsT#1283142894_XdhQM4T  We did remind him not to pick up things in the yard that he doesn't know what they are like an inch worm.  He's not afraid, and he is curious.    Thanks for all the Mother's Day well wishes and for the comments on my iris picture.  HAGD, Maryann
Springtime has finally come to our part of the world
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      "HUMPTY DUMPTY" by  Kimber Fiebiger   "Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Unknown Author  And the nursery rhyme goes like this............  'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.  All the King's horses and all the King's men  Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'  Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face.   Kim's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30  In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"   Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."  Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience.  A few more public art pieces can be viewed here:   http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW  Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 12/28/2011)  My Homepage: http://www.Godschild.smugmug.com

June 19...   This week we have the 27th annual Kite Festival on our island.  Our beach is so popular for the kite-people because we have the broad beach and a steady wind from the North Sea. About 8000 people have come from all over the world, some even come from New Zeeland, but Germans are the majority.  They send up about 15.000 kites. Quite an impressive view
Monday, July 2, 2012  "COBALT MARLINS and TRUMPET FLOWER FIORI" by Dale Chihuly (2009)  "I'm very interested in transformation and how objects are transformed. Reflected images will become as substantial as real works. It's not about the object; it's about form, color, light and shape." ~ Therman Statom, American Studio Glass artist  I absolutely love color; and Dale Chihuly's glass art is full of it! I wish I could click my heels together and be transported to every city in the world where his art is exhibited and take photos. Wishful thinking?    Well, here's a SOOC (no flash) shot of the centerpiece of attention measuring 96 x 96 x 96 inches; it is MY FAVORITE in this exhibit of hand blown glass among his current exhibits. Dale Chihluy, the artist, describes it as "a visual feast of exuberant color and daring form - brilliant, indoor garden created with blown glass flowers and daring verticals that reach almost nine feet above their base."   Additionally, thank you for your comments on the "Spearmint Seafoam Set with Cinnamon Red Lip Wraps" yesterday. Each day, there are superlative photos posted in this community. Although my time perusing and commenting on photos is very limited this summer, I genuinely appreciate you taking time to peruse and comment on mine. It has never gone unnoticed or taken for granted.   Disclaimer: Although I post what I like (emphasis on "I"), I'll try not to bore you; there's more photos of Dale Chihuly's glass art forthcoming:).  Dale Chihuly's official website is www.chihuly.com  Have a marvelous Monday.

Monday, June 4, 2012     "WHAT FLOATS YOUR BOAT?"  “O God, thy sea is so great, and my boat is so small.” ~ Unknown Author  SOOC, uncropped  "This small prayer (see the above quote) is known as the Breton Fisherman's Prayer, who are fishermen from Brittany, an administrative region in western France. The Breton Fisherman's Prayer was engraved on a brass plaque and presented to President John F. Kennedy by US Navy Admiral Hyman Rickover. The admiral would subsequently present the same type of plaque to all new commanders of Polaris submarines."   Additionally, "The Breton Fisherman's Prayer is not typically used by scouting groups such as the US branches of boy and girl scouts. Some Canadian girls associations have used this and/or variations of this in their printed material, as well as this prayer being the motto of the Children's Defense Fund." Reprinted texts from here: http://www.answers.com  SPEAKING OF SPORTS: Boston Celtics defeated Miami Heat in overtime last night in Boston. The final score was 93 - 91 and the series is tied 2 - 2. Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals will be tomorrow in Miami, FL. The family and I are pulling for Boston. Tonight, San Antonio Spurs host Oklahoma City Thunder in game 5 of the Western Conference Finals. The series is tied 2 - 2. The family and I are pulling for OKC!  I genuinely appreciate you taking time to peruse and comment on my photos; it has never gone unnoticed or taken for granted.

A view of our recent snowstorm from an upstairs window.    The reunion is over.  Our dinner party was a lot of fun, but I'm pretty wiped out.  Tomorrow, though, I'll be back to my regular routine and I hope to catch up on everyone's photos.  Have a good beginning to the week.
Friday, January 28, 2011  "PRIMARY AND SECONDARY" Abstract  "There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality." ~ Pablo Picasso  This is my 3rd PP creation; it is the transformation of yesterday's POTD. Isn't it amazing how much different it looks?
