Where The Wild Things Are


Okay, enough about little blue farmhouses!

I paid my best friend Tom a visit yesterday,
and he provided me with some wonderful photo op's!
He has several hummingbird feeders on his deck,
so I thought I'd attempt to take a pic of some of the zippy little fellas.
I didn't hold out hopes that my pics would be any good,
as I don't have a fancy SLR camera,
but I was pleasantly surprised with what I captured!




His little bird feet just crack me up in this one!

Moving over towards the fence,
Tom has a neighbor with a llama named Jacob.
We like to feed Jacob carrots, and Jacob humors us by eating them.
Here's Tom and Mr. J...


Heading inside the house, Tom recently adopted
a furry little gal named Wednesday.
She's next to impossible to photograph, as she is a perpetual motion machine.
I need to have Winnie give her lessons in posing, as the Winster has it down.
This was the best I could do of Wednesday the cat...




Speaking of Winnie, she is never one to miss a chance of a photo-op,
especially if it means she'll be all over da interwebs again!



Hi Winnie!

Finally, I went looking for Mr. Twig this evening,
as I hadn't seen him for a bit.
I went outside and saw this some 20 + yds from the casa...


"What are you doing?", I asked.
"Just being a pack." Mr. Twig replied.

Wishing you and your pack a Happy Wednesday!

OMG that is so funny. My husband does things like that too. Gotta love it! We have hummingbirds here to but they have a bright red on their bodies and they will fly right up to us take a quick look then fly off:) I love them!

Love the picture of Winnie! She's very photogenic.

Lululiz said...

Anne, the photographs are great! No hummingbirds here, but we have two very cheeky robins in the garden. I love the photograph of your pack. We are exactly the same with our two dogs, we love lying together in a pack. It is quite humbling to have these two big powerful animals give you so much love.

You captured the humming bird beautifully. Love the one with the dogs too! So cute. Be blessed .cindy

Debra@Common Ground said...

I love it!!! Daily life at the homestead. I had to laugh at Winnie in the plastic sack, why is it that cats love these? I have a hilarious story of one of my sweet past kitties running through the house, trapped in the bag, while peeing all the way. It was like a parachute on a race car. I still laugh when I think of it! Great birdie photos, yea, love the teeny tiny feet! Hope you're having a great day. I'm off to hunt for slipcover material...eek.
love ya,
Debra

Theresa said...

Well dear Anne, you were pretty darn good to get a picture of the hummingbirds. They are so fast. My brother has them hanging outside his front window and they are ALWAYS there. I love to watch them. Cute pictures of your visit and Mr. Twig and the pack... PRECIOUS! Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

A Cottage Muse said...

So looking forward to seeing my hummingbirds at my campground this weekend! Aren't you lucky to have such a cute pack!

vintagesusie & wings said...

How cute is that...I know he's the pack leader by his body language, right! Your photos of the hummingbirds are awesome! I so need to get a better camera with a really good zoom...my zoom sucks for a better word. When I do, I will attempt to take a close up that's not blurry or shakey, lol!

I LOVE being a pack! It's such a wonderful thing. Do Mr. T or you ever smell dog paws? (Don't make that face! lol) We always giggle that dog paws smell like taco feet. How funny is that?!

The hummer photos are fabulous, girlfriend! You got great photos of them, and the llama is a sweet thing, too. Apparently, llamas are very accommodating.

Seems like a perfect day to me. Thanks for letting me tag along.

Beautiful photos! I'll have to send you a photo of my favorite painting. It's of a dog from the nose up. It looks like he is looking through a window and must be standing on his tip toes to see over.

sissie said...

Ah, I would say that Winnie is the star of your post today! My Gabbie and Gizzard would love to meet her, well maybe not, they are too jealous!

Love your hummingbird photo and the llama that reminds me of Big Bird for some reason, and he's not even yellow!

The Pack looks pretty good too.

hugs

Hi Anne, the photos in this post are fabulous. My girlfriend in San Antonio anticipates the return of Spring each year so that she can get her hummingbird feeder up and out. She bought a bigger and better one this year because she enjoys seeing the hummers so much. I tried last summer to get pics of some in NC but it wasn't to be. They were just way too fast for my digital. I love the blue farmhouse! What a wonderful place. Keeping you in prayer, Tammy
