Here is a couple feral goats that hang around the house with our pet goat. It is getting very dry now so they have to get creative when it comes to looking for food.

This is the 1955 picture of a mural just off the Square in West Plains, MO. There are 12 pictures in all.

The mural was drawn by a local resident of West Plains, and this picture is of Porter Wagoner (country singer from here) and Preacher Roe (Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher who lived here for many years). The building in the back is the Aid Hardware building, which still sits on the Square today, but is now a thrift store. The IOOF (International Organization of Odd Fellows) building is still in the same place it was then. Crozier's Drugs is now an IB Nuts and Fruit Company.

I've poste photos of Wedged Tail Eagles before but this is the closest I've ever gotten to one. There is one section of road that we travel once every month or so and there is always one sitting on a fence post. I've often tried to get a photo and they always fly away but yesterday this one just sat there.

From the "wilds" of Australia to the canyons of Manhattan: here is the towering Rockefeller Centre central building (30 Rock? I think), built during the last great depression.




It houses the NBC studios, an observation deck and the Rainbow Room (a famous restaurant with its heyday in the 50s). The decor inside is all art deco - it's a really beautiful building. Right below it is the Rockefeller Skating Rink - a subject for another day.

It's views like this one in Pinner which is why I will always live in suburbia

Great eagle photo, and I love the contrast between Manhattan and Pinner!

This is part of the decor at one of my favourite restaurants here in town. They do a mean bacon cheeseburger with home made fries (with the skins still on!) for under $10. It's so big I always take half home for later.

More from Florida... In the northern end of 13-mile long Amelia Island, there's around 300 acres of tidal marsh parkland called Egan's Greenway. Only a few yards in on the trails, and it feels like a whole different world than a developed seaside resort. Just before taking this picture, I startled a bobcat that was taking a shortcut over a bridge. Or the bobcat startled me, as I was preoccupied with worrying about the prospect of stumbling across a hungry alligator in the warm afternoon sun. That didn't happen, and I had a few wonderful bike rides along the Greenway.

Before 1965 there was a county called Middlesex, it still exists postally and Kenton is right in the middle of it where this icon of Middlesex, the red bus, was taken.

I think I may be up there in a couple of weeks, Ren, and I'll see if I can't take some indoor shots. There are some really nifty murals along with all the art deco details.

My neighbour's tree is looking very pretty, as are a number of similar trees in the neighbourhood. I just love this time of year!

Beautiful blossoms and those marshes are also gorgeous. Is that a heron?

Silversword
This plant is an endangered species. It is only found at Mount Haleakala on Maui. It is such a lovely shade of grayish green.

Here is Ham polo club, the team scored a goal just before I took this and then straight after. It's just by the river in Richmond.

Although I peruse this thread almost daily, I rarely have the time to upload a photograph to share.

Today I took lots of photos, and tried out the macro setting on my camera. I'm not thrilled with the outcome, though I do like the depth of colour I got in this particular picture. Most of my shots were over exposed, and none of them got as close and enlarged as I would have wished. I guess it's time to take out the manual and try again.

Here are some buttercups, which bobbed cheerfully in the light breeze whilst I picniced with my youngsters nearby:
