The Winner of November's Giveaway is...

DJan from DJan-ity! This Green Heron will be flying to live in the Pacific Northwest - Washington, to be exact. DJan is one of the most active bloggers I follow, hiking mountain trails, skydiving, vegetable gardening. Maybe this heron calmly perched on a rail can help her relax when she gets back home and pours her glass of wine. :)

Thank you to everyone who entered and commented! I've got December's giveaway ready to go and will be posting it soon.

A Mid-October Evening

A view looking across the front hay field. Yes, these are SOOCP shots, again (straight out of cell phone).
 And the same evening, looking back down the driveway towards the setting sun.
 The sun slipping through a cloud buttonhole.

Unruly, Muly Neighbors

A few good-hearted squabbles next door (the mules and a few horses that our neighbor allowed to graze in her pasture for a while - until they started reaching over/pressing down the fence to try to get into our pasture, that is.)
Pretty little sorrel mules and a paint horse
 This pair of mules took turns grabbing each other's halters and yanking on them.


 They were best of friends, though.
These next shots were taken with my cell phone one evening as they lined up near our barn, hoping to be fed when I fed our horses.

You can see the fence line leaning from their exuberance to reach greener grass.

The black mule is HUGE but is SO sweet.

White Ibis - Juvenile

For a few days this fall, we had a juvenile White Ibis drop by at the pond.


 He was pleased to pose for a plethora of pics (*groan*)

 
The bokeh of the background is almost dizzying.

Too much holiday eating?

Perhaps it's time to hit the redneck gym and "Git Fit!"

The New Watery Wednesday

Great Egret spies woman with a camera.
 Chooses to fly further away.
 To continue hunting from the far side of things.
 Green Heron just hunts from the fence panel. Although that's quite a reach.
