Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many—not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Charles Dickens

Positively stunning reflection photos, Gail. You are the most patient photographer I know. I am please to know you and your talent!

Yes, $4 for those heels is a great price, too. and ...double Yes on not wearing them yet, that is for dang sure. It is only 30° here lately. Boots are more the normal lately. hahahaha Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

Beautiful serie !

Gail, I get my wild bird seed from amazon. I am a prime member, so I pay no shipping costs, however, my state now charges some task. I get the 20lb Heath mix and the 10lb nutty mix..also Heath brand. Birds like the nutty mix best, but so do the squirrels.

schmidleysscribblins.com said...

Taxes. And the nutty bag is Kaytee. Dianne

catskillblogger said...

Starla said...

Anni said...

Oh Gail...hope you get a chance to find it, AND photograph the booby!!!!!! I look forward to hearing from you about your venture!!!

Karen said...

Gorgeous reflections, and I love the softness of the brown landscape.

Donna said...

Gail what a glorious post and pictures...certainly makes one pause to reflect.

Stewart M said...

Wonderful pictures - as as the ones in the post before.

One persons flaws are another persons points of interest - but both see the same thing.

Egrets are always a fascinating bird to watch when we travel to Florida. Some seem to show a personality too.
