Whooo are YOU Looking At?

I don't know who it belongs to, or who originally took this picture, but this is the most adorable little baby owl I've ever seen!

He seems a bit upset that someone is taking his photo.

I love the way his little bottom sticks out over the back of the branch.

What an adorable little ball of fluff!

Have a "owlsome" Wednesday!

Saturday Blog Shopper July 17, 2010

Morning Everyone and Happy Saturday!

Hope the week has been very good for everyone.

I've been running out of ideas for clever things to post on these Saturdays; seem to have gotten myself into a bit of a rut.

Been sitting on the back porch pondering what I could offer for a special this week.
A big dragonfly zoomed down beside me ... nearly took my head off! It sat there for a while, flew off, then came back again and perched on the rock next to my chair.

He was a beautiful one... a big fellow with clear wings and a dark band. Very large and handsome.

(Was too slow to get a pic, but this is close -not exact)

I like dragonflies, but being slow on the uptake I went inside and didn't think anything about it.

Later I was walking to my car and there was another large dragonfly spinning around me, and one more of those pretty little delicate blue ones. (We used to call them darning needles, but I'm not certain what their true name is).
(similar to the darning needle I saw, although I think mine was a darker blue)

Strange... was there something about me that attracted the little creatures today?

Everywhere I went today I seemed to be inundated with dragonflies... either flying around me, or sitting (do they sit?) next to me. What am I, the dragonfly whisperer?
A couple actually tried to follow me inside, but I'm glad they didn't. My cat would have made short work of them.

OK... I may be slow, but it finally sunk in.

My dragonfly earrings will be my special this Saturday.
