This is how my three children looked when they started eating from a spoon. I had three high chairs, three kids, one spoot.

Tony, I love owls too, and I don't know why.  I just love how they look.

Beautiful pictures Tony! WOW

And thank you Melinda and Joan. I am so glad you enjoy the pictures.

Tony and Steph, you outdid yourselves today with these splendid creatures. What a nice way to end the day; with visions of color, nature, and diversity. 

Tony, that one owl is almost invisible. Isn't evolution grand!

Tony, that flying owl pic is gorgeous!  Steph, love the pic of the bird with the berry in his beak.  It reminds me of my Grandma's backyard when I was little.  She had a whole row of bushes with berries like that, and would always warn us that the birds could eat the berries, but they weren't for kids (whatever they were must have been not for human-comsumption!)  She loved birds and had tons of flowers, birds, a birdbath, etc. in her yard.  It was gorgeous!  Thanks for bringing that memory back to me!~ Melinda
