It’s been a cold and rainy day today. Not exactly conducive to getting out and capturing a beautiful image. So indulge me if you will and please enjoy these images of the big birds at the zoo from last week’s visit.
Thanksgiving is just two days away, so I’ll be busy in the kitchen. At least this year I made sure all the shopping is done ahead of time so I can miss the crowds at the supermarket. An early stop at the Amish Market in the morning will bring a fresh turkey for the celebration.
Hopefully you will be surrounded by loving friends and family during this special American holiday. A day to stop and show thanks for the good fortune in our lives.
But there is a sky above the rain,
Nothing can rot the sky.
Earth has turned to mud. What of it?
The heart of the planet is made of fire, of ardent sun.

Happy Thanks Giving for Thursday Emily
Hope you’ve had a wonderful day today Mark ! After two days of cooking, time to relax and watch some Dr. Who!
A Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
A couple of the birds looked as if they were afraid that they could end up on the menu Thursday. 😉
LOL ! It’s interesting with this series, there really is a sad look in these birds eyes. Somehow they understand where they are. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving day today. Super cold here, but do have a hike planned for tomorrow to walk off all those cookies.:-)
You had cookies? And you didn’t tell me?
LOL ! Still baking – send me your address. 🙂
Have a wonderful thanksgiving! 🙂

We went to the beach and then home to a tasty turkey so it was a splendid day 🙂 Hope you find some real bargains in that crazy energy out there today I remember those days all too well when I was trucking 🙂
More stunning shots. And Happy Thanksgiving to you.
You are so kind Lynne, and I appreciate you so much. Hope you had a wonderful day with family and friends.
Actually, we celebrated our thanksgiving here in October and I was home alone today … 🙂 … time at the ‘puter.
Oh my ! I hope you were okay with a quiet house. Sometimes its good, sometimes it isn’t. Hope you at least got a nap. 🙂
I was OK and it was good – alone for a few days and, yes, I got a couple of delicious naps. 🙂
Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving! Fantastic shots! 🙂
It was great ! Thanks for enjoying these birds with me.
