That ole 100th Post...

This is a blogger moment for me. It's less than a year since I started blogging and I've come to my 100th post. A mile mark most of you have already surpassed, probably quite a while ago. Blogging has become a very enjoyable part of my life..it is one of the reasons I reach out to try and capture a shot of that hard to find bird like the Yellow-billed Cuckoo. The few times I have come across this guy he is ALWAYS, at the top of the tree, usually hidden among the leaves..but hey, it only takes ONE good shot, right...and then maybe I could post it!! Well, it's not that great of a shot but I posted it, anyhow...Such a blogger thing to do!!

Blogging gets me all fired up to take pictures, but then there are times, I'm as slow as you know who, to transfer my photos to my computer, edit them and post them...ahhhh
Sometimes, for a post, I skip the bird yarn thing and want to show you how I play away the day...like when I spend all morning painting "my own version" of the wooden ducks.. that I purchased at a thrift store...just so I could put them in my garden. (couldn't resist putting Wellingtons on my one duck..tee he)


and then there's the posts where I ask questions of my blogger friends...like why does this Hairy Woodpecker have an orange spot on its head...where a red one should be? No, really.. why??
but most of all I just want to sing my praises to all of you---who visit my blog and leave me the most enjoyable and nice comments. Words that inform, words that share and words that just make me smile!!
Looking back, I really had a fun time putting together 100 posts... Thanks again for being such nice cyber friends.

Tina: Thank you for sharing the wonders of the PA woods with us. There are times I can get the feeling of childhood with my time spent exploring those woods. Appalachia is such a wonderful place.

Tina,

Congrats. I really like the photo at the top of your blog. The contrast is great. Keep on blogging!

jalynn01 said...

Good job Tina! I do enjoy your posts and the things you write. Don't know about the Downy's orange instead of red spot. It is fun to try to get a picture of a bird we haven't gotten and post even if it's far away, high up, or just bad light..always go for it! Your bluebird is gorgeous and I simply love the ducks ... especially the one with boots!! Well done!

Oh Congratulations, Tina on your 100th post! You are such a great blogger gal and I enjoy your captures each time I visit! Yep...that Cuckoo bird is a tough one...I finally got a decent close up this spring (which I have yet to post).
That turtle picture is sooo nice the way its eyes look!
And the common yellowthroat is really in a neat pose and close! But that bluebird is exceptional and just melts my heart!!!

And wow! The turtle shot is AWESOME! I really like how you focused on its face, so pretty :) I've never seen/heard of a hairy woodpecker with orange on its head instead of red!!

Neal said...

Tina, it's always a great joy to read your blog...thanks!! I just love the blue bird.

Of course your picture of the terrapin always takes me back to my "mean little boy" days. :) We would find a terrapin and he wouldn't stick his head out so we would get a match and hold it close enough to his rear end to make is head pop out and start crawling. :) I should have had my butt kicked real good. :)
