The icicles were cattywampus as the supporting collar around the aluminum tubing melted away. (The tubing runs at right angles to the house when pivoted fully outward.  The icicles are just under the extended roof line, and thus at the place where the tubing catches drips (no eaves).  A bird feeder hands at the end, out of frame several feet to the right.)

April 18, 2014  I can't imagine why anyone would want to shoot an elephant.  But some do.  This is a taxidermy display at the SCI show.  The elephant was huge.  It made me sad, but I thought it worthy of showing you.  As I mentioned several years ago.........I don't post photos from SCI to offend you, but it's a reality for many people, so I show you the results and my experiences.  Neither Bill nor I shoot animals, we only shoot clay pigeons, but this is part of his world, and you'd be amazed at the 10's of thousands of people who attend this show and pay big bucks to get admission tickets.  Thank your for your comments on my "Big Cat" photo from yesterday.  "Women are like elephants. I like to look at 'em, but I wouldn't want to own one."  ~ W.C. Fields  I hope you have a big & successful day today my friends.  Linda http://lgood.smugmug.com

Friday, April 18, 2014  "NAILED"  “People, like nails, lose their effectiveness when they lose direction and begin to bend.” ~  Walter Savage Landor   Thanks for your comments on my "Cypress Preserve" photo yesterday; it ranked in the #1 spot for the day.  My hubby and I were in this city where "The Help" movie was filmed. He was driving and as we came to a red light, I spotted these nails in a pole while awaiting the light to change. Since there were about three vehicles behind us, I quickly rolled down the window, zoomed in, and did a quick point and shoot - all before the light changed.    TGIF!!  Corner of Grand Avenue and (?)

4-18-14. Pileated Woodpecker. Magnolia Park, Gainesville, Florida. 2014.  Sorry about the distracting leaves, but I was standing in the bushes and shooting. The woodpecker kept hopping around and I never got a completely clear view. Still, I got pretty close!

April 18 - Crow on The Look Out  I saw this crow sitting on the very top of what is left of a dead tree.  I liked the silhouette and decided to capture it.
A yellow rose and morning raindrops...  Saw this beautiful rose on a morning walk after some rain the night before, couldn't resist a shot...  Thank you for your views and comments!  Critiques welcome...  17 April 2014
Day 107: Daffodils - April 17.  So nice to finally see flowers blooming
04-17-2014 "Lighter Clematis"  This is another clematis I have in my yard.  It has somehow gotten into a lorapedlem that is growing next to it.  It is supposed to be growing up an arbor.  It is a lighter color than the deep purple I posted a few days ago.  I love the color of this one because it is so bright.  To answer Art's question about some the children at Horses for Handicap not being photographed, here is what I know.   It is a requirement that all children in school or participating in events where photos will be taken that there is signed parental consent before their photo can be made.  Even before I retired schools were required to have this consent before the students were photographed our recorded on video or audio.  I am assuming this is throughout the nation because I know that students participating in national honor choirs have to have this release.  If one child does not have the consent the event cannot be photographed or recorded in any manner.  I think part of it goes back to how easy it is to get photos of children on public media like Facebook, Twitter and others.  You know there are some SICK people out there and we have to protect the innocent.  The honor choir I just chaired had 130 high school students and before I could take any photos or have the concert professionally recorded I had to have the parents sign a consent form.    It tickled me that you all were so complimentary of the sweet smiles of Sutton and Lily on yesterday's post.  I can't wait to read them the comments.  You are most gracious and I certainly appreciate them all. Donna

April 18 2014 Finally  It was windy yesterday and the neighbors daffodils were drooping (maybe from Monday's snow) but I got one picture.  So flower season has started albeit slowly. :-)
