Day 696 Smoky

Smoky has a hot spot and he needs a collar. I looked out the kitchen window and realized the blue collar went well with the wet patio.

Day 687 Country Morning

I was able to work at a small country school today, so here are my three favorite pictures from my drive to work. I really enjoy the top and bottom image, but I feel like the middle one brings them all together.

It's not often I post three times. But I am not a good editor of my own work,

Day 685 Poor Pit-bulls post 2

I photographed the first pit-bull while driving to work this morning. The second pit-bull was photographed on my way home. I actually got out of the Jeep to take his picture.
Yes I have photographed this dog before, he's just a few posts down. I hate his situation.

I took a two pictures of people in cars while driving home. Here they are.

Day 683 post 2 Disney an Orange Fronted Conure

It's been a long time since I've photographed Disney. I thought if I put some water out maybe I'd get lucky and he'd take a bath.

Day 683 Smoky at the Dog Park

My husband and I had a bit of time this morning so we decided to take the dogs to the park.

Day 682 Another Poor Dog

Driving home I noticed this dog chained next to highway 33. I called Animal Control who said they can't do anything because the guy who owns the dog is not breaking any laws. Apparently he gives the dog a cup of food in the morning and it has water in a bucket. The dogs job is to guard hay. The dog was very nice to me, and even appeared to say thank you for the food I left him.

Day 677 Old Head Stones

Since my mothers passing I have been working on a family tree. Which taught me about a site that photographs graves renewing my interest in old cemeteries. I drove by this one a week or so ago and vowed to return. It was a very weedy place, hot and dry, and seemingly forgotten. Here are two of the head stones included in this small cemetery.

Day 676 Effie's Rattlers

As my husband and I were walking I came upon a snake coiled up on the road soaking up some mid-morning sun. Before I could get my camera up, he slithered lickety split into the brush. We then gave him a wide birth and continued on our way. As we were nearing the end of our journey we walked towards the center where we found a rattler in the middle of the driveway. I wondered why it was there then noticed it was injured. It was severely mutilated at the end near it's rattler. I thought maybe it could be saved so I stood guard while my husband ran up to the center to get the snake some help. I blocked traffic so no one would run over it again. I did take my camera out and snapped a few while I waited for my husband. It was moving very lethargically. By the time my husband arrived back I though it was dead. He said they didn't seem to interested. I guess snakes get run over quite a bit. Still I wished we could have helped the poor thing. I know nature is brutal, but it was a car not nature. By the time we drove away from the center the snake was coiled up in the center of the driveway. I guess it wasn't as dead as I thought. But by the time of this posting, a few hours later it is for sure dead. Here is a picture of this doomed snake.

Day 676 Effie Yeaw 2

Some of the wildlife moving along living their lives at the Effie Yeaw Wildlife Center. I love the wild turkeys. Plus I had to get a picture of a fawn with it's mother, and a frog.

Day 676 Effie Yeaw 1

My husband and I enjoyed a walk along the trails of the Effie Yeaw Wildlife Center this morning. I am only posting two pictures for this post as I want to show Five. But this new and improved program blogger has won't allow me to show five pictures without screwing up the spacing between them. As I am neurotic I'd rather make two or three different posts than have pictures with un even spacing.

I wasn't ready to throw away this backdrop so I laid it down and photographed Smoky.

Day 672 post 2 Disney a Day Late

I was looking at yesterdays pictures and have more that I like. Since this blog has become more of a secret diary of images for me, and since the rules have changed oh so often, and since I can do what I want, I am posting them.
