I felt like Snow White today, I sat outside on the back porch this morning with some pieces of bread. We have these two doves that hang around and one was outside so I thought I would see if I could get it to eat bread.
So I sat down and threw some small pieces out. Well the birds do fly-bys to see if it is safe, and they didn't even land on the ground. But not 5 minutes later 2 rabbits showed up twitching their noses, so they must have smelled the bread. I sat really still hoping that I wouldn't sneeze or fart something, and sure enough they came over and started eating the bread. They were probably a couple yards away, and they looked identical. A third one started coming and one of the two scared it off, and left the one to eat. That was neat. I'm gonna go out earlier tomorrow and see if they will come back again.
Then later I went outside with Toby to go potty and a little bird flew down from his nest high up and then couldn't get back up, so Jeff got me a ladder and I put him back in.
Here's the stupid picture my camera took, isn't it nice that the background, and heck even my arm pit is in focus yet the little bird is blurry…whatever. I need to save up for a better one, you get what you pay for eh?
Here's his little butt back up in the nest.
So a couple months ago Rhonda and I met for lunch and ran into Ross and we found these cute little book thingies with silver edged paper, and a hole in the front for a photo.
This is what I did to mine, nothing fancy, but I love this stamp set, and the hole is not super big so I was kinda limited to what I could do. I will probably change it out once in a while.
Today Jeff and I watched quite a few episodes of Leverage, it is very addictive, we will finish one and then say just one more. It's like a potato chip, you can't eat just one…ha!
Have an awesome Sunday and thanks for stopping in!
Are you using the macro setting on your camera? When you take really close-up pictures like that you need to use the macro setting so that the thing you are close up to is in focus and the rest is not. Give that a try. I am not a expert photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but that works for me.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE your little wildlife episodes on your blog. I am so amazed at all critters that live in your backyard! And, to be able to hold one, once in a while, well that's just a huge bonus!
We have tons of gray squirrels, doves, finches, skunks and possums around here. I love each and every one of them. They get fed well too.
Your creativity is always amazing. Look forward to reading it each time.
Happy Memorial Day!! Olivia M. aka Royal Princess. 🙂

What the dickens is a macro setting? Some year I need to read the darn instructions that came with my camera. I love the book, that is really good. Since I am reading a couple of days worth of posts please thank your nephews (?) for me too. I appreciate everything that the soldiers are doing for me. I hope you are having a great holiday. Me, I am going to work. Getting time and a half till midnight, not too shabby. See ya tomorrow.
