My favorite is the second picture although I miss seeing the squirrel. We don't have squirrels here in my country. When I saw it for the first time, I thought it's cute but I was warned that they might bite.

Lovely critters, Joanne! And so lovingly captured by you! Hope you're having a Happy Father's Day and a relaxing weekend.

These are really stunning birds, and they are wonderful pictures.

Michelle, Mrs. M, Yes I like the seagull too. I love all birds :) Squirrels actually won't bite unless they feel threatened. They are very friendly out here and used to humans.

Rainfield :D Just call me "nature whisperer"

Bossy. Oh, that is so sweet, thank you and you know I love your blog as well.

Jennifer, thank you so much and I hope your weekend was special as well.

Sandy, thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

Nice assortment of pictures. My favorite is Dominoes. I used to have a cat named Domino, Minnow for short. She was a gray tabby, named after a song my daughter was learning in the chorus, not for her coloring. ~karen

These are all great! I really like the first photo - very cool.

SFBakstad said...

Don't know how you do it, but you do it so well! Those are great shots!

Ann said...

Great critter shots. Love the contrast between the first and second one. The first has a rather fierce look in his eyes while the seagull looks so calm and happy

Jan's Place USA and Mt Forest Pictures said...

My..you have lovely friends!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

KaHollly, Thank you and what a sweet story :)

Peaceful, Thanks he doesn't look so happy does he ?

SF, thanks so much for your kind words

Ann, I know huh? seagulls are always so calm and peaceful, this one in particular is a cutie. My friend actually fed him by hand and it was so cool to see.

Jan, LOL! Thank you, I love em all.

Karine said...

I think Dominos just won the most appropriate name contest! lol

Great shots - you seem to be able to capture them with great expressions too!

LadyFi, They think I'm the paparazzi and they pose for me :D Actually, the squirrels do pose, it's so cute. Thank you
