Prayers Postscript

Many thanks for the continuing kind words, healing thoughts, well wishes and prayers for Bon Bon Pond’s injured Canada Goose. The good news is he has not gotten any worse and remains active both swimming and climbing up and down the steep bank for his corn.  Additionally, he travels the extra distance to join his extended family  in the backyard to graze on the short grass and nap under the pines.  He is still  limping but it doesn’t interfere with his daily routine. 
Canada Goose expert Choo Love Rosenbloom from our sister site examined the photos below and is cautiously optimistic that no serious life-threatening damage has been done to his left wing.  Unfortunately, Minnesota’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center will only take Canada Geese that can be rehabbed back into the wild.  There is no sanctuary here for non-endangered waterfowl that cannot fly.

Department of Duh

he other day I was determined to get a photo of this year’s fledgling Downy and Red-bellied woodpeckers. Outside I headed with my trusty digital camera to sit on the front yard bench and wait for my new friends to appear.  The babes were happy to oblige and I began snapping photos fast and furious.  Thru my view finder the shots looked great.  Mission accomplished.  Later that evening, I process the pics and was left scratching my head?  Huh?  The pictures were taken in midday.  ???  Finally, I checked the settings on my camera and discovered the “best shot” selection was on “night time.”  Below is what happens when you shoot daytime photos with a dusk lens.  Weird, but kinda pretty just the same.


Yes, the missing “e” is intentional—which makes the graphic funny!
