 Variety, they say, is the spice of life. So here we have some spicy four footers,  but mainly feathered ones.

 Awkward landing.

 It's okay, you can admire me.

 A flutterby, er, ah, butterfly.

 Taking off, or landing? You can admire me, too.

 ( Fill in your own caption.)

 Sleepy sheep, er, um, lambs.

 Hummer up close

 Down by the  sea shore, surely.

 That peacock sure has a fancy cage.

 I told you, this is my limb.

 Dinner time! I'm coming, I'm coming.


 A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day and was confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner. "Good morning," said the young man. "If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners." 

"Go away," said the old lady. “I haven't got any money." She started to close the door but quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open. "Don't be too hasty!" he replied, "Not until you have at least seen my demonstration." And with that, he emptied a bucket of manure onto her hallway and told her, "If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this manure from your carpet, madam, I will personally eat the remainder." 

The old lady stepped back and said, "Well I hope you've got a darned good appetite young man, because they cut off my electricity this morning!"

  1. The first one is a blue jay (the ones we have here are technically scrub jays and Stellar jays) and the fourth one down is a kestrel, the smallest falcon. A friend of mine reported seeing one trying to intimidate a mourning dove and the mourning dove looking at it, going, you have GOT to be kidding me.

    Kestrels are the ones that keep the small-bird population in balance. Gorgeous, aren't they?
