 No offense to animal lovers everywhere, but I still think possums are ugly. Even juveniles like this guy.

  6. P.S. Amazon has got some interesting and wonderfully free Christian Kindle mystery books, romance novels, and general Christian encouragement resources along with patriotic praise and worship music mp3 downloads. I shared about it at SandwichINK today. :) Enjoy!

  7. Lol - we've had a few of those furry birds at our feeder, and one day we were sitting at the dinner table and a possum strolled rights past the glass door. Icky. Great photos!

  8. Having been born and raised in the country, I know all about everthing you shared today.

  9. I would have been startled, to say the least, if I saw that little possum in my recycling bin!

  10. Hi Sue, yeah I'm not much of a fan of possums too. Have a Happy 4th of July!

  11. what colorful beehives!! We live just down the street from a bunch of beehives and they sell the local honey at a stand on the weekends... it's so cool!

  12. Once upon a time, I was a beekeeper, so the photo of the beehives is my favorite in the lineup!


    The sky’s a most wonderful thing,
    Enjoyed by both peasant and king;
    No matter the eye
    That sees the bright sky
    The proper response is to sing!

  13. Haha, those pesky critters. We have squirrels that like to get in our trash. Have a happy 4th of July weekend! :)

  14. Did you take all of those?? They are amazing!! What kind of camera do you have??

  15. Thank you so much for the kind compliment, Marvelous Mommy! Yes, I did take them all. The first one was taken with a point-and-shoot CoolPix camera. The remainder were taken with a Canon Rebel XS camera. Photo #'s 5 & 6 were taken using a Canon 100 mm macro lens EF 100 mm f:2.8 IS USM lens.

  16. I like the squirrel shot too! Happy 4th of July and PS!
