Comedy Relief to Moody Skies...

I'm just not home much these days. It's Spring Migration and Breeding Season, so the birds are calling me to come find 'em...early to bed early to rise; I'll catch you later...out birding!! I thought today, for a bit of laughter, I'd share some of the comedic poses I've witnessed and captured 'on film'...




"Why are men so puzzling?" -first photo
and
"I'm auditioning for Dancing with the Stars!" -second photo

...then, this


"How many times must I say...'I can't cook!'"


"Me thinks I bit off more than I can chew!"


More? Okay you pulled my leg. But just a couple...


"Who needs acupuncture when I can do this?"


"Whoa...one too many...steady ol' chap!"
..."Must be something in the water!"


Bird Species from top to bottom:  Cattle Egret, Reddish Egret, Common Tern [Forster's Tern], Great Blue Heron, Red Breasted Merganser [female], and Bufflehead Duck [male]


- - -

This is also a good month for Texas' State Flower...


The Bluebonnet


- - -


Spring Training for pro baseball is over, the season begins!! Where there is a ball field, there are fences....




- - -


And last but not least, the moody skies of the Coastal Bend- -

  1. Now this is a great way to start my day off. A blog post full of smiles. Love the birds with their humorous poses and your captions are just perfect for them.
    Seeing as how we got snow last night, I guess I'll be spending the day standing in the corner

    1. Snow? Okay, remain calm, it's a Spring storm. It'll go away quickly. In the meantime....stand around the corner & stay warm.

  10. Your blue bonnet flower looks a lot like what we call lupine. Coffee is on

    1. I don't think so....the lupine are much taller and spindly, while the blue bonnet is quite compact in stature.

  25. Anni your captions under the photos are hilarious!!! How long did it take you to come up with those? Not one of those fine feathered friends had a carrot either. If I had the birds to see that you do I'd be out birding too.
    Ohhhhhhhhhh you know I like chocolate..don't tell Madi it isn't good for me.
    Well it is but as with all things delicious it is good in moderation.
