“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?”

About | Theme: TINY | Roll
<><><>

As always TNChick brings us a challenge every week, and this is no exception! Tiny? And ol' Anni, always having her mind in the gutter, well -I couldn't expose my pecho diminuto, that would be close to porn if y'all were compelled to use a magnifying glass. But, if you catch my drift, hubby has always told me that DYNAMITE comes in tiny packages. So, another weekend and I'm trying to find something 'tiny' that can be an appropriate photo! And don't even think about me asking hubby to drop.........well, never mind!!!

Picture it....Friday afternoon, Hootin' Anni is walking the floor searching for 'tiny'. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Then, sauntering outdoors, perhaps I can locate something tiny besides an ant that I can focus in on....a small flower bud or something....

I almost...I said ALMOST walked into this------
[photos can be enlarged]


It's still damp from the morning dew.... the tiny dark speck is highlighted in a yellow chiseling.


The yellow arrow shows the close-up of a teeny tiny spider. He/she was spinning its webbing around and around something that was trapped!!

Now, we're all going to break into a song routine. READY?

"The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout......."
What's the next line please.
Just joshing....Happy weekend everybody.

pecho diminuto is Spanish meaning tiny chest.

  40. Annie,
    You must have a great camera for close-ups?
    By the way, how do I add names of photohunters on the blogroll??
    Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Matty: --the camera I have is nothing fancy, believe me; it serves it purpose tho. To do 'closeup' shots I take the one photo then go in and edit it by cutting it and pasting in a large empty window and save it.

    ReplyDelete

  45. Oh how many of those have I walked into! I like spiders, well, most spiders.
    OK, back to singing..
