misty said...

Great pictures. Happy WW. Hope the rest of your week is good.

I know she is "kissing" the net, but when it first came up it really looked like she was biting it...LOL

Happy WW

ellen b. said...

Fun pictures for WW. I really like that bird!! Blessings on you...

Barb said...

Wonderful photo of the bird in the mirror!

Susan Demeter said...

I LOVE that last shot!!! Happy WW :)

Sarge Charlie said...

I love this photo

Pamela said...

My cat does something like that in the hallway mirror.

Tammy – Thanks … I’ve got ‘tennis’ on my mind and have used today to catch up on missed Wimbledon matches from Tuesday … but the bird seemed a perfect touch for all the non-tennis fans out there.

Misty – Me too .. and I’m glad you liked them. I seem to be fighting off a sore throat, but am hoping it’s really just the changing weather causing allergies to act up. I definitely don’t want to get sick, so thanks for the well-wishes ;--(

Vixen – You’re right … it DOES look like she’s biting it. Glad you dropped by ;--)

EllenB – They seemed appropriate to me given this is the 3rd day of Wimbledon and there were some surprising upsets and close calls in matches thus far.

Barb – Wish I could say I captured it myself, but all I did was find and share.

Sue – Seems like it’s a hit with lots of folks today.

Sarge Charlie – It is pretty special.

Pamela – It’s interesting to observe animals around mirrors. I have birds that do this to the reflections in the French Doors of my house.

To all - I appreciate all of you dropping by and if I’ve not visited you yet I’ll get there as soon as time permits. Hope you’ve had a wonderful Wednesday!
Hugs and blessings,

Spectacular photos, Storyteller!

♥.Trish.♥ Drumboys said...

great shots I just saw her kiss the net on TV LOL

To answer the question on my mosaic - I used big huge labs mosaic maker -it really is so easy.

In this case I sent my photos to make a flickr photoset and pasted the photoset url into mosaic maker and it takes 60 secs to make.


storyteller said...

Lori and SandyCarlson – I’m glad you enjoyed the photos and thanks for dropping by.

Trish (Baby~amore) – When I posted the photo, I was watching the match and didn’t know she’d managed to win the 3rd set … but I’d just seen Ana hit that little net dropper … saving her from a 2nd set loss. Natalie Dechy played magnificently and SHOULD have won that match, but for a few bits of good luck in Ivanovic’s favor. Djokovic wasn’t so fortunate against Safin was he? Thanks for the link to ‘bighugelabs’ … I’ll check it out in a little while.

To all – I hope you’re each having a delightful day!
Hugs and blessings,

Tina Coruth said...

Wow! That bird photo is incredible!!

storyteller said...

Tina – Yup … wish I could take credit for the capture, but alas … all I did was find and share it.
Hugs and blessings,
