Portray a Movie

The theme this week by Mac  is "Portray a Movie". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

The movie I chose was "Black Night" 2006. I thought I would use a Black Night Heron I saw in Florida last week. I was gone last week for the bird challenge so I still get to use this one. We were at Homosassa  Springs. This Black Night Heron decided to visit us. I love the long white feather on their head.
It was a beautiful bird.
I enjoyed the visit.
It posed for quite a while.
I got pretty close.
It kept posing.
There was a pair of them in the aviary so I got them together..

"B&W verses Color"

The theme this week by me  is "B&W verses Color". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

I thought this would be a neat subject to see if I like B&W or color. I chose the color but it was close. This is a muskrat swimming on the lake
It was pretty cool in B&W.
I looked at this monolith in Mexico.
I would have chosen the B&W here.
The color on this doe in my yard was spectacular.
It was not as cool in B&W.

The Other Side

The theme this week by Kathy  is "The Other Side". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

So what does Kathy mean by this theme?  Why it could be the Great Blue Heron fishing the shore of the lake. It often turn around and goes back and forth along the shore looking for a bite to eat.
They are a beautiful bird.
I often show the animals by my shed.
So if you turn around you see what the animals see, a deck on the back of the house.
I also show the front of the house.
If you turn around you see the cul-de-sac across the street.

Chaos

The theme this week by Christine  is "Chaos". Mac, Kathy, Craver, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that.

I'm a little late today with this tough subject. Christine really got us this week and Mac is gone again. I decided to show what can cause chaos in the city neighborhood. I looked out the back window and saw an animal with a gray squirrel  in its mouth. I thought it was a coyote but rethought it as a red fox. It went right around the front of the house and up the street. 
It was lucky there were no kids out playing.
I do hope it was a red fox.
It was on the street.
Here is some chaos from a spinning wheel.
Here is Sam giving it a spin.
