Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration

The challenge at The Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘Admiration’ this week.

Krista has asked us to ‘depict something or someone you admire’

These little fellas are due some admiration……as would anyone who can walk on water in my book!


Meet Peter the Pondskater


This next little chap is not quite as successful…I fear I might have snapped him not long before he went under.


Bernie Beetle loved Peter Pondskater and wanted to emulate him in every way….not always successfully!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

To continue with yesterday’s story of Dinnertime!

Remember….. it was Percival Pelican and Percilina Pelican and their flying fish dinner!


Percival and Percilina Pelican before their lunch! Percival is the one with the yellow under beak!


Back in the water…..what happens with one fish and 2 very large beaks……


Looks like Percilina has managed to get there first!




Disengage Percival!


Funny looking really!

That’s All!

Percival Pelican wants his DINNER!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

This week Michelle has asked us to share an image inspired by dinnertime.

“Ah!” I thought, “Pelicans!”


Meet the handsome Percival Pelican!


“FISH!” squawked Percival!

His lady love Percilina Pelican came to join him…..


Percilina Pelican knew that once Percival got this demanding, with wide open beak, fish would soon be coming his way!


Percival was not much of a gent and snaffled the fish up straight away! Percilina could only look on and hope that now she was in front, it would be her turn next!


Percilina was delighted when she felt the gentle thud of the fish landing in her deeply elastic bottom beak!

Come back tomorrow to see what happens when Percival and Percilina both go for the same fish!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Future

The challenge this week is to share photos with the theme of Future.

This I will do!


Grady O’ Grebe looked at his reflection and resolved to use a different hairdresser in the future!



Yehudi Yellowhammer resolved to wear a vest in the future on these bright yet chilly Spring mornings-plumping up his feathers just wasn’t doing it for him!

That’s All!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Future

A story of a goat who wanted the future to be the present!


Goldie the Goat was deep in thought

Thinking of what he would like

He was still quite young with time on his side

But he wished he was like Uncle Spike


Oh yes, he had horns-not bad for his age

But dear youth how impatient you are

He wanted what only many years could buy

I suppose it’s not that bizarre


Gordie the Goat tried to comfort him,                                                                                                        He said, “At least your horns curl!                                                                                                             Look at mine all pointy and straight                                                                                                           How I long for a wonderful whorl!”


Now Uncle Spike he was a sheep

With two most glorious horns

And shall I tell you the irony?

It’s his long lost youth he mourns!!


Uncle Spike

 And just to finish……

Sharon Sheep                                                                                                                                             Couldn’t hear                                                                                                                                                          As her horn was holding down                                                                                                                        Her ear!IMG_7340

Weekly Photo Challenge: Future

So the challenge is to find photos that show my interpretation of ‘The Future’!

Let me tell you a little story of some Turkish frogs!

Here’s Fahim Frog (Fahim means ‘great, big, large’!!)


Fahim is a fine and fertile frog…what’s he waiting for….or should I say who??

 And here is Ferahna Frog (Ferahna means ‘Wideness, looseness, plenty, width, abundance’. Not sure I’d like to be called that!)


Ferahna Frog is thinking about her future and what will happen today!


Please forgive the quality of this next photo, only  Fahim Frog moved so fast which in turn made Ferahna Frog leap with speed and so all you can really see is a blur of frog!


A word of warning for the next photo….The future is being made in this next shot!!


In the wild flurry of the leap, they ended up upside down but look at the quality of that cuddle! Nice work Fahim Frog!

Whooop and they’re the right way up!


The future is secure!

That’s All!
