Downy at Dusk

It was getting near dusk, the G12 was downstairs, and my old Canon A710 was on the table. So here's a couple shots of a bold Downy Woodpecker at dusk, taken with the A710.





It seems I haven't retrieved the pictures from this camera in a while. This photo was taken in Columbus back in November.



Does anyone remember when it was green and sunny? These are from October.

Thanks vs.

It does seem long ago...especially on the colder days. I may have gotten some nifty orb-deers a few minutes ago.

I love when Satan sends one of his felines up for a little recon.

You have an interesting, perhaps mid-western definition of sunny.

Picky fish is picky.

No, but I remember when Sunny gets blue.

As Freddie Mercury sang, I Want It All.

Actually, this holiday season, a bottle of wine would do, to go with my endless supply of whine.

...OK, a BIG bottle.

As I am sure Jamie Dimon would maintain, wanting to live a peaceful life, with a modicum of dignity and small measure of confidence that one poorly-planned illness wouldn't leave me destitute, perhaps a career that provides a decent living and a 50/50 shot at a retirement not in a rundown nursing home, having my soul sucked out my asshole by a mummy in a cowboy costume, makes me an imbecile and a leech.

hey wait a minute, "having my soul sucked out my asshole by a mummy in a cowboy costume" is kind of a description of the standard of living Jaime Ho-Tep WANTS for all of us!

Dear Thunder Claus, I would like a new bike, please. I do not want ape-hangers or extended forks, just an ordinary road bike. Thanks, AK

The orb-eyed thing is telling me to do bad things.
I'm trying to resist, but the eyes, ohhhh the eyes.

Listen to the voices, Von. The voices generally know best.
