  6. Fabulous photos! Great fence, and beautiful sky shot!!! Love the cute kids, especially that shot of one of them feeding the pig, :-) I hope when you visit Tucson you come in the spring or fall. :-) There's a lot to see & do here, but I think that's true of most places...you have to visit many times to do it justice!

  10. I don't know which are my favourite, today : the choice is hard ; the sky is so beautiful, but the little girls posing for Halloween are so cute, and the last two blue birds are so wow... Thanks for all those sharings with us.

  12. Amazing reflection shot, like looking in a mirror. I might have thought there were four birds if you hadn't labeled it a reflection.

  13. Great set of pictures - I do like that warm feel in the first two images.

    Never really thought of birds reacting to me in the same way as a they do to predators - just that they fly off!
