Another one of my photos from my visit to Disney last April. This one is one of my favourites from that trip. Why? Just look at that bird! haha

Again, as I mentioned in previous entries, there were very many birds around Disney that day that didn’t seem to mind people being close to them, which made for good photo opportunities. This one was a pretty big one too, though not the biggest we saw that day. No, that title goes to this one –

I didn’t catch it when it had it’s wings out like I wanted, but this one came out good enough. Such a pretty bird! This one was out to get everyone’s churros, somewhat aggressively so. I kept a good distance from it because of that, haha.

More to come later!

Travel Plans

It’s slow season at work, so I took Friday off and had a nice three day weekend, the first one in a long time. No OT for a while, so that means I have more time to study for my testing and have some much needed me time. As much as I like OT pay, it’s nice to be able to relax a little more.

On the subject of my title, Katie and I have decided to go down to Florida on her Spring break, mainly to see my mother and our friend. I’m not fond of Florida at all, but that’s where most of my family is, so I’m doing my daughterly/grandaughterly duty. It’s close to my mother’s birthday too, so she wants to take us and our friend up to Disney like she did last year.

The above picture is actually from last year, but I haven’t gotten around to posting all of those pictures yet (soon! I promise!). As I mentioned in a previous entry, there were a lot of photogenic birds that day! This one was another one of them. He was perched on Mickey’s nose, just watching everyone watching and taking pictures of him. I took three pictures of him before I went on my way to Tomorrowland. I would have tried to take more, but Disney is a busy place in the middle of the day, so I didn’t want to be in the way. I’ll post the other two shots of him later.

I’m off to bed now, so good night!

Weekly Photo Challenge: One

This was taken earlier this year while I was visiting family in Florida. My mother took me and two of my friends to Disney for a day. While we were waiting in line for the Haunted Mansion I noticed three cute, little birds hopping around in a tree near the water. I got my camera out and took a few pictures of the three. This little one in the middle had less movement going on, so I was able to catch him the clearest of the three.

There were actually a lot of photogenic birds hopping about that day, but this one turned out the best, I think.

Birds

I’ve been noticing birds fly up on the deck quite a bit, so I bought a bird feeder for them. It’s just a small one, but I think I might have to upgrade to a bigger one after seeing how many have started flocking to it. There were at least 11 at once at different times during the day. A dove even showed up to nibble at the seeds that had fallen on the deck. It didn’t stay for long, though, because a certain Fatty-meow decided to charge at it through the glass, haha.

Speaking of, Phantom seems to love that more birds are showing up on the deck. He gets a lot of bird watching in during the day now. I forgot to get a picture of him watching his birds, but here’s one of him with his favorite toy, a fake rose. He became attached to it as a kitten and likes to carry this around the house.
