That vain Blue Jay is hilarious. What a cute pose!

Dave, No National Guard here, but I love that cartoon! I've often thought of geese when I see the Blue Angels or other precision flying groups in formation. So, non-coms issue orders to airmen? How does that happen? I didn't think the chain of command would allow it. But I must admit, I know nothing about our armed services other than I am glad there are so many wonderful folks that are willing to serve - my utmost respect and gratitude to all.

Last one.
We set up a bunch of flashes all trained on the cactus bloom. Then, we put some hummingbird nectar in the bloom. We moved their feeder and put the cactus in its place. They were lapping up that nectar from the cactus blooms. There were four of us taking photos, so we spread it out over three days so we only bothered them for a few minutes each time.

Yes, Kim, We originally planned to get just the male but when we went over to pick him up, he and this little female were the only two kittens left and well, since they seemed inseparable, why break up the set? Absolutely no regrets. She is the sweetest thing. Buster is bigger and outweighs her by a couple of pounds but their markings are very similar and we still get them confused if they are not together.

These Mexican Jays were very curious. They would come very close and just watch us whenever we went out on the porch of our cabin in Big Bend National Park. When we didn't fork over any food, they would squawk loud and get even closer.

Photo edited: In addition to adding the caption I also removed a few stray branches in the photo.

These White-faced Ibis were quite comical to watch. There were probably 15 or 20 in this one small pond. I did some serious pond skimming to clean up this photo and focus on the birds and text.

I'd love to see more funnies!

Thanks. I'm having a tough time finding humorous shots in my archives. It does remind me of my wife and me some days. :)

Here's one I took a couple years ago. I remembered it but couldn't find it on either of my computers so I had to run a rescue program and found it on one of my cards.

That singing hawk is so funny! You can put some Christmas* song lyrics on that one and send it out for a Christmas* card.
*Or, to be PC, the holiday of your choice...

Sort of like this one I did a while back.

Added a hat and some snow along with the lyrics.

mns, Oh yeah, I did some serious pixel torturing on that one. :-) :-) Other than boosting the saturation though, I didn't do anything to the bird itself - just added all the other stuff. I took the photo in south Texas in July, so the poor bird just had his mouth wide open to cool off. A lot of the birds looked just like that. It was 3 digit hot out there.

Lily, Thanks. I did use it as a greeting card a few years ago. Every year I try to think of something new. No ideas yet this year. Down to the wire.

Reluctantly, this past summer I escorted my wife to a wedding 250 miles away. I insisted that the next day we go to a place another 40 miles north that might possibly have a Great Gray Owl. I was so glad I attended that wedding.

P_Edens told me about this thread. These are all so funny.

I've never added a bubble to my photos, so I used the first tutorial I found and fiddled a bit. This is a Northern Shrike.

Well, I like that picture. I can tell what kind of bird it is, so that's a plus in my book! I think the reference is to Casablanca? But I haven't seen the movie, so ?? Was Bogart eating sunflower seeds in the movie? LOL
