IdahoBlueBird50 AOTD: November 1, 2019

These pics are selections from a single photo shoot. These aren’t my wounded friend, who I saw only yesterday in the front yard with his short tail and dramatic scar. I love them all. The photographs above represent two squirrels. Four are of the same squirrel and then there’s one odd-man-out. Can you pick him out?

I know that I’ve posted pictures of individual sparrows on this part of the roof before, but I can’t find any evidence of group shots. A few days back, I posted a photo of a couple of sparrows that were in a little tree in the parking lot of the grocery store that I frequent. I hope these little guys are suitable for Granny Shot It’s Bird of the Day Challenge (aka BOTD.) I hope also that everybody had a great Halloween! –Russell

Granny Shot It WWE: November 1, 2019

WWE 3College Creek, near US Naval Academy, October 30, 2019. From a distance, the view from the bridge at Annapolis Road is quite charming. Up close is a different story. Because of pollution (fertilizer, run-off from the streets, etc.) the water is quite murky. I will spare you a photograph of that because these are supposed to be beautiful photographs. Please accept this submission to GrannyShotIt’s Water Water Everywhere challenge (aka WWE).

Ragtag Daily Prompts: Regret, November 1, 2019

Perplexing Problem

La princesse paused on the footbridge and deployed her parasol.  Le comte des deux chats, Gargar stood close beside her, panting softly. She shuddered before she spoke.

“Oh, how I hate having these peasants paw at me!” She cried bitterly.

“I regret to inform you, ma princesse but the adulation of the lower classes is part of the price we must pay for our positions.”
