Thankfully the quarter is over. Jackie, Charlie and Annie are doing fine and I'll be sure to pass along your hugs to them. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone. Happy blogging. ~Cindy
Kudos to you, my friend. I don't know how you did it, but this is not an easy picture to get! Excellent exposure, composition, sharpness and colors.It looks to be some kind of hawk...any ideas?Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
Thanks Jacob. It's a Red Shouldered Hawk. We have a nest of them in a tree out back. They're there all year long. Can't go a day without seeing one. I love them. Great birds.Starting back to class on Monday. Looking forward to it. Have a wonderful week. ~Cindy

Just stopping by to say "hi!" and to send you love, Janine XO
Thanks Jackie. It's started off good. I hope it continues. I really was lucky to get the shot of the Hawk. I'm surprised there were not Mockingbirds picking at/on it. I love these birds they are so beautiful. I can't wait until our break. I'm looking forward to the holidays and I really need some time off from work and school. Charlie is asleep on my bed and Annie is in the dining room. They have been such good babies. Sad news yesterday. My sister Teresa had to have her Black Lab Princess put to sleep. She had cancer and was in pain. She was a wonderful friend and protector. She'll be missed. On a more cheery note I hope you're having a wonderful weekend and the weather is cooperating wherever you are. ~CindyThanks One Million Tulips. Happy Sunday.Hi Janine. Thanks for stopping by. I wish I had more time for visiting everyones blog but school has started back and I'm already working hard and trying not to fall behind. It's so hard sometimes with all the work they give us. Looking forward to the break coming up for the holidays. I really need it. Have a wonderful weekend. ~Cindy
Hi again! I thought that might be some kind of "red" hawk. It's pretty cool to have them in your yard! Thank you for your kind words on our blog today! Hope you have a nice, relaxing day today and that your educational endeavors go very well this year!
This is very pretty!
Hello, dear Cindy!!! Best wishes to you with all of your work! You're in my thoughts!!! ~Janine XO
Cindy...I'm so sorry to hear about Princess...such a sad time...the loss of a beloved pet. My heart is heavy for Teresa....Love to you,Jackie
I love me some Charlie and Annie. I left a long comment to you on my blog regarding Annie....Give her many smoooooches from me!!!
Thanks Kerri.Thanks Janine. I apologize it took so long to respond. Things around here have been a little crazy. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful week. CindyThanks Jackie. It's been a sad time for my sister and for us too. Princess was a true and loyal friend to my sister. I know she misses her very much. Stopped by and read your comment on Annie. Thank you. It was very hard on me. I worried about what she was thinking about me leaving her. Charlie is doing better. He gave her kisses earlier. They looked so cute lying next to each other kissing. Smooches on the way.Have a wonderful week.
