I have no idea what blooger is doing with that sparrow pic. I cropped it a few times and uploaded it even more...just like the other pics. If you click it, it seems fine. Damn you, blooger!

The emboldened things s/b "s1600" & "s320," respectively. (I think.)

Love those shots! Especially the first one- looks like some of the corners/roads round here.

And the sparrow is great when you click it!

a squirrel is a bushy-tailed rat

and sparrows are rats with feathers

Kalei's Best Friend said...

so is the sparrow and squirrel pic yours?

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

Yes, I took all three with the old Canon A710.

You'll notice the improvement if/when I get another G15, KBF.

G15? That sounds like some sort of spy lingo there, Snowden.

Glad I read the comments, because I couldn't see anything wrong with the sparrow picture. Looks like you fixed it good.
That corner looks like it could use a little repair. Nice choice.

The collars on the curb are the only thing saving it from complete collapse. We don't have those much around here.

Nutkin looks seriously pissed! Like I wouldn't want to fuck with him.

Sparrow cheesecake's what I'm talking 'bout!

Bob Scotney said...

That corner is a tripping hazard, but I don't think either the squirrel or the sparrow will be worried by that.

Sweet birdy and squirrel, but oh those lovely moonflowers....and what does it bring to mind for me?

Nice bit of squirrel - we don't have them here. My kids loved them when we went to the US and Canada, no matter how many people told them they were pests (squirrels, not the kids;)

Nice bit of Santana, too, Karen - thanks!

Love the squirrel's pose- never knew a squirrel had such long legs!

Interlocking stone is a lovely choice...until it crumbles at the edges.

I'd adopt the squirrel and sparrow if I could. Awesome captures!
