Life at the strip pits

We had sunshine....ALL DAY LONG! I didn't quite know how to act...of all the days to have it, it was a good one. Sarah and Lorelei were planning to come up today, but due to unforeseen circumstances, they didn't come. However, one of the guys Roger used to work with came and spent a good part of the day here.
A while after his friend left, we decided to run out to the strip pits to see what we could see. On my Time Stand Still I have featured the prize capture, but I thought I would show these as well. Yes, if you click the photo above, I think you can tell that that is a cat! I thought it made a fairly good photo.
There were not too many birds, we seen more mallards than anything. The geese and the mallards seem to be pairing off to start their families.
We saw some other deer, but this was the only one that I captured with the camera.
********************
I just discovered something about ScribeFire...the Firefox add-on to manage blogs. The pictures that I upload with it cannot be enlarged. Another negative thing was that only one photo at a time could be uploaded. Though I would have lived with that if the photos had enlarged. Anyway, I probably won't be using it.

I think it would be fine if you didn't publish photos to enlarge...but even on my Time Stand Still blog, my photos can be enlarged. Except for these few I have published with it. and the more I think about it the more I am thinking I will go and redo the photos with the regular publisher.

The ducks and geese are on the move. Flocks are flying over every day now, stopping only for rests in the local ponds...unless they decide to stay and raise their families there, that is. Spring is here. ;-)

Wonderful shots Rose! I did visit your other blog and just love those photos.

I think it is so pretty when the deer match the landscape. There's something about it that catches my fancy.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Rose! I liked the deer and goose pictures the most.

You had a good day at the pits :-) Sorry the ScribeFire didn't work out. I always load my photos on the blog one at a time, just because I've found a way that works for me and stick with it. In my Bible study blog, I can't figure out why sometimes I can copy and paste from Word on the compose screen and other times it makes me do it as html....so confusing for an easily confused brain like mine! Makes me wonder sometimes why I want to blog at all when I look at the time I spend sitting here!

Sunshine makes my day! Things are gonna get better!

Love the cat photo...looks so lonely out there...I'm amazed at all the wildlife you see at the strip pits. Thanks for sharing!

All birds big and small seem to be pairing up here.
I wonder what that kitty was doing there all by himself. :(

These are great pictures from the strip pits. I'm sorry ScribeFire didn't work out the way you hoped it would.

Rose: How unusual to see a black panther cub in the wild. What an adventure and that deer photo is great.
