Serene Scenes for Sunday

Goldfinches

Love this topsy-turvy twosome
Throwing in Thelma and BB just because I can.
So why not add Zim and Gem as well?
Alright, then - Baron and Louise, too.

Have a relaxing Sunday, everyone!

What a life these dogs have!!:) Love the shots of the birds. I just say that variety of woodpecker yesterday flying around. They are really beautiful. Love your Goldfinches!

Lovely photographs. I love to watch finches. They are real busy bodies but extremely shy. Two white breasted Finches made a nest at our place and I really enjoyed photographing them and observing them.

Randy said...

I would love to sleep as comfortable as a pup sometimes. Love the horses.

Donna OShaughnessy said...

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

There really is serenity in your pictures!! My favorite kind of Sunday!! I hope you've had a good day!!!

Marie said...

This is kind've a "twosome-contrast" post! I love the two birds, one upright, the other upside down...but I noticed then that each shot after that shows a pair with some kind of contrast. Very interesting!

Thanks for your comment on my Fridays Fences.

Rita said...

All sweet, but I love the double bird shot the best just because you don't see a shot like that very often!! ;)

It does look so serene... I need a place like this. If only... sigh!

I like the bookend version!

Lorelei and her mom were here...we were relaxing in a different way. I posted about her at my other blog...but will tell you here since this is not your newest post...Sarah was telling her to do something and she was ignoring Sarah...well, Sarah wanted Lo to go with her. So, Sarah started to count to three, she said "One" and Lorelei said "Two......Threee" Her mom asked her if she wanted her to spank her butt...by then Sarah had headed to her room...Lo looked around at her and said, "No, Not yet!" But she got up and hurried on after her mom.

Barb said...
