{foto friday : baby swans!}

21 Jul

i had the honour of seeing these beautiful baby swans back in late spring around the lake by the house. sadly, i’m just now getting around to blogging about them.

i was hoping they would get close enough to use my 50mm lense to capture… and they obliged! 🙂

the adorable little babies did not stray far from mama’s side…

the whole family came together…

our neighbourhood lake has these awesome feeders for the lake-dwelling animals…

they perched and munched for a good 5 minutes… it was so cool to watch…

the turtles hung out close by, hoping for some snacks to fall to their level! 😀 Continue reading

i love it when she stands like this or when she looks at me like that…

and i love her crazy long whiskers and when her ears go back like this…

she’s mildly playful, and also easily annoyed when her claws get stuck in things…

callee-1

callee has recently become a lapcat… she never used to lay on my lap and let me pet her and now she’s always climbing all over me – especially when i’m sitting at my desk blogging. so – apparently my kitty callee says hello, everyone! 😉

{animal messengers : the centipede}

i found this little guy {or gal? … are they asexual?!} in my tiny house the other day… and i think it’s so cool i was able to kind of capture the little legs!!!

i may have been a little freaked out at first, but that’s what you get when you live in the mountains – you have to learn to share your space with all of nature, as you are on her turf.  when i looked up what this creature “represented” {according to some}, i read terms like psychic revelations, ability to survive stress, and this : “it is a wonder that something so small can humble even the largest and most threatening of creatures and people.” which clearly made me feel so good and comforted – cuz i am small, myself – but only physically 😉

i happily scooped him up onto a piece of paper and released him outside… but not before snapping a couple quick fotos.  little bugger is FAST, too!  i could only fire off two shots before he creeped down into a crevasse and scurried away…

apparently some centipedes are poisonous?!  {yikes!} but not here in colorado, from what i’ve been told and read. i am thankful for my little gift of a centipede messenger.  at the time i didn’t think much of it, but after reading about the energy this creature carries, i feel super blessed to have had it cross my path…

zuko-7

…i can’t even handle it… SO CUTE!!!!!!!!

zuko is not my dog, but i get to play with him all the time ‘coz he belongs to my neighbour/landlord and he is always wandering over to my tiny home to play and be adorable.  like when he laid on my yoga mat the other day in the sun…
