Daughter Jessie and Mission Mural

My daughter Jessie and Mission Mural makes quite a nice contrast.

Squirrel and Flamingos

Squirrel and Flamingos Contrasting  Natural and Hot Pink!

The backyard wildlife is popular with our visiting students. This squirrel posed quite a while with the flamingos yesterday until he started digging in the wine barrel then I had to interrupt this bucolic scene. Does anyone remember that I posted almost the same photo sans squirrel last week?

One more squirrel photo for no reason than you might like it 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge juxtaposition:  it is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast”  Which photo works best for this definition?

Let The Games Begin! Sunflowers vs Squirrels

I waited one day too long to take a picture of my sunflower! The first thing I heard from the husband the morning was:

“Honey, you won’t like this! You’ll be mad at the squirrel but he has your sunflower”

As I grabbed my camera I shouted: “If I can’t have my flower at least I’ll have a picture!” I got two

He looked me straight in the eye and dared me to come get it.

Sunflower down

Sunflower up! In a splint there are still buds on the plant. Any ideas how to keep them safe from the wily beastie?

I guess I should file this under my own Prompt from yesterday of Ripening. You get critters when who want to share your crop when things ripen!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused (Find the Squirrel)

Find the Squirrel

I keep seeing post for this photo challenge  so I deiced to join in. Can someone, please tell me the origin so I can stop being a lurker, like this squirrel that was almost came into the house last winter.  If I remember right I shot this critter’s reflection through two windows. It’s kind of a Rashomon image. You’re not sure of what point of view to believe or where to look.
