Shadow Play

Anonymous, NM Bill created this shadow of a giraffe!
Pretty cool, I'd say.

Much Ado About Nothing

I took a trip to the Rocky River Nature Center the other day.
The weather was nice but there wasn't much activity in the way of birds.
I circled the lagoon and headed back to the parking lot 
when I heard frogs jumping into the water as I passed by this small slop pond.
This guy apparently was not afraid of me and let me take his portrait.
I think his expression sums up how still the day was.

New "App" Tells Why Your Baby Is Crying

How Ridiculous Is This?

New baby "Smart Suit" with sensors tells parents why their baby is crying.
It works in conjunction with a smartphone app wirelessly. (I'm dying here)
The "Exmobaby Suit" full story can be seen at Mail Online's website.
That baby needs to get some sun.

The Ghost Of Bin Laden?

Or is it Casper going to a costume party dressed as a Sheik?
Looks like he's got his Koran and a bag of basmati rice.

Apple Of My Eye

I was at the VW dealership getting a car wash when this car pulled in.
I inquired about the tag with the owner, who looked like a human pin cushion, if she was affiliated with
the Apple Corporation. She said no, that everyone called her car "The Apple" - for obvious reasons.
She also stated that the "X3" when typed resembled an icon for a heart. (A bit of a stretch)
When she went over to the lounge area, I thought she better stay away from magnets!

Kids Learning Italian

We need more parental control!
It's OK to smack your kids to wake them up, just don't kill them.

The Face In The Clouds

To each his own on this one.
I see Aeolus, God of The Wind. And after many squints, I see a lion, a boar and many more.
What do you see?
(I know Anonymous, NM Bill is going to see a can of Pepsi with June Cleaver on it...)
WAIT! Now I see a laughing rabbit prancing with a head of lettuce.
I see the doctor tomorrow.

Blue Jays Love Peanuts!

Blue Jay eyes the best peanut.

He picks his favorite one.

And he takes it to where he can crack it and enjoy it in private!

The Mighty Ducks!

Mandrake keeps a vigil watch while Gertrude has some corn kernels for breakfast.
The ducks have now appeared in the yard two days in a row.
I've been advised that my yard is a strong candidate for them to build a nest here!
In fact, they may have already done so according to my expert. 
I'll look around.

"The Kiss"

I was watching these two when the male picked up a sunflower seed and gave it to the female.
How romantic!
After the "kiss", they both hopped down the steps to the back yard like two lovers going down lover's lane!

Mousey Mousey!

In My Housey!

As birds continue to enjoy the offerings at my feeding station,
this new visitor is looking to have some of the feed that drops to the ground.
He's a little bigger than a chipmunk and apparently is afraid of the birds he encounters
as he darts away for cover when they flap their wings.

See the answer here. And be sure to watch the cheesy video.
