Nature's Super-Models

As summer has progressed, so has my 100 titles reading pile. I'll post the titles over on Goodreads in the next couple of weeks as I finish. Hopefully by September 21st, the 100 title read fest will be complete. 

For the last 3 years, I've followed the Caylee Anthony case closely. It breaks my heart in a way that touched me deeply. Yes, I agree with our American judicial system, but I do not agree with the verdict. So very sad. Nuff said. 

NOW, let me entertain you with some of the delights that live in and around my back yard. Let the runway commence:
 This little beauty is a blue-tail lizard. Isn't he gorgeous?

This is Meeeeeee! (Bluejay) He loves the camera and insisted on being 2nd on the runway. His wish was granted. 

The Cardinal and the Woodpecker -- oooh and aaaah. Mr. Cardinal and Mr. Red Head Woodpecker both wanted to show off their brilliant red heads while posing for a quick snap. 

Now what would complete a Nature's Supermodel's runway? Why a bit of "frolocking" and misbehaving! Yes, our Cheyenne completes the show with her own unique talent. Making us laugh! 

Hope you enjoyed the show. Have a wonderful weekend and a safe week ahead. 

Keep whistling and skipping,


  1. Love your pictures! Great photography and great subjects, too!

  2. You've a great backyard Cherri - lots of action there!
    That pretty blue-tail lizard has a lovely spot to call home.
    I'm always fascinated by the Cardinals and Woodpeckers. Beautiful birds.
    Cheyenne is just loving the sunny day too.
    Thanks for sharing the pics... delightful :D)

  3. Diana, thank you for the compliment. Gotta tell you, the subjects are the best! :-)

  4. Susan, I actually had you in mind while trying to get a pic of the lizard...that little rascal can move as quick as a lightning strike. lol! I so wanted you to see something with a bit of splash in its coloring. Your photography is superb. Give me time--I'm still new at all this camera clicking stuff. ;D (if you click on the pics above, you can see the detail in the pics--they really are lovely birds!)

  5. Isn't it cool the things that live in the average suburban neighborhood?

  6. Nate, we have the best of both worlds, don't we? I love it! (okay, except for the skunk--all the other critters are really neat :>))

  7. Loved the show. Encore!

    What's extra special about your photos is that they're wildlife not seen here. That includes Cheyenne. :)

    P.S. You're supposed to writing, not reading.

  8. Vicki love, you're very perceptive and you caught me! However, today I've plunged in head first back into writing (saving the reading time for nights). Isn't Cheyenne the cutest? (proud momma) :>) She'd LOVE Australia. I'll upload some more of the "runway" in the next couple weeks...featuring HannahBoo!
