Here...and There...

Friday was Moth's Birthday.  He had chosen what he wanted.  When I saw what they were like, I was a bit alarmed at first because the color was just a bit too green.  But then after I saw them set up I decided that they were actually closer to a garden, or tree green than I realized.  What do you think?

We call them,
The Guardians of the Waterfall.
Leopold and Linus

That's the "Here" bit of this post.

The "There" bit is in Ontario, Canada where my sister lives.  We always giver her a hard time about the earthquakes she might feel when she's down here visiting.  Well, you may have heard that Ontario  had its own earthquake a few days ago.  It was a 5.0 and she sent me this photograph of the terrible damage.

Nice portrait of a bird before.

That is so funny, really made me laugh!
The lions look excellent guarding the waterfall, they blend in nicely.

So glad that was the scope of the damage your sister had to deal with! It could have been worse, yes? Love the lions and anything green gets my vote! (The rocks are gorgeous colors too!)

I think the lions look great, I am trying to talk my better half into a pond with a waterfall....loved your "wildlife" photos. Count your blessings you have no coyotes or lions. You took some GREAT shots, are you using a zoom ? Thanks for stoping by my new blog.

Very popular in England at present, they keep popping up in the most unlikely places.

Green is my favorite color, so I like those lions. lol

Do you think the insurance will cover such extensive damage. After all those chairs are priceless. (or $5.00 at the local supermarket. lol)

Love love those lions. Happy birthday to Moth.

And that photo is hilarious!!

Jose, I'll have you know those chairs are at least $10 each up here in Canada and can only be purchased at Home Depot :)

I love Moth's lions, Chris -- just hope they don't scare the birds away from the waterfall!

Ann said...

luckily the chairs were plastic. I was surprised too that Canada has earthquarkes.

I think moth’s lions look a little self conscious did they know you were putting them on your post? Amazing how birds can get on with only one leg, great picture by the way.
