“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Could this be.....Swan Lake?

The photo hunt theme this week is JIGGLY! Either I'm getting burned out on this meme, or the challenges are becoming more difficult to find something to fit the prompt. All I could think of for jiggly is J E L L O™. And I don't have any jello made. rofl. Let's see.....hmmmmm....jiggly. Nope, can't think of anything I have in my photo albums that would suffice, except for maybe the two swan photos I have from the Gladys Porter Zoo trip---their butts DO jiggle when they are out for a swim. Perhaps you may think the ripples have a jiggle to 'em also ---sound waves jiggle through the atmosphere also...swans are known to trumpet with sound....okay, I'm really pushing for my futile efforts here today, LOL. This is the best I could come up with for fitting the photo hunt prompt AND camera critters meme all in one post.

  1. Great take on the theme. Had not thought about it that way, but yes, their little backsides do jiggle and wiggle!

  12. Oh Annie...
    Sweetie how beautiful, I love this photo. Yes the swans butt does jiggle as it swims away. It definitely qualifies I am sure. And the water jiggles away from the swan. So very delicate and peaceful at the same time. I love it.

    This is really a hard game to play. I guess my butt jiggles. You could show photos of butts. Start shooting them this week, and you'll have plenty by next. Oh how fun. Bells jiggle when kitties walk that wear them. It jiggles the heck out of me.

    I love stopping by sweetie. Thanks for my Annie fix for the day. I am off to my hair appointment.

    Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  24. Swans are always elegant and entertaining and I love the way they waggle (or jiggle) their tails.

  31. It must be doubly hard to get one that fits both, though I've seen some others doing trying the same thing. I just don't do the Camera Critters deal. Anyway, nice job. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at mine.

  35. Well Anni you managed to come up within something but like me the photo needs a lot of explanation to connect it to the theme.

    Happy weekend to you.
