And the dog is cute. nt

Thanks to his destruction of the Louisiana budget, that state cannot

afford the lawsuits the Phelpses will file. The reason Fred had his kids become lawyers is that suing people whose buttons they press enough to goad them into doing something that even slightly crosses the line is a (perhaps THE) major source of their funding.

The LA taxpayers will have to pay again for this fool's grandstanding.

FOUR young hawks were just standing around together in my backyard!!

Wow! I was just looking out the window while on the phone, when I spotted FOUR gorgeous young hawks, each about the size of a cat (though undoubtedly not as heavy!), standing in a fairly tight group in my back yard. They just stood there looking around, then looking at each other, then looking around some more, like a bunch of confused kids who were curious but not at all clear about what they were supposed to do or where they were supposed to o.

After several minutes, they all flew to sit in a row on my neighbor’s tall wooden fence (see picture, which shows 3 of them), with about a about the same amount of space between each two birds.

They sat that way for a while (and I took some useless, too far away pics and video while they did so, for fear of scaring them away if I tried to get closer), and then one flew to a tree nearby. Then another flew to the same tree, and then another, leaving just one on the fence.

I am thinking maybe they were fledglings that were hatched in the tree they all decamped to.

But how cool it was to see them standing there together for so long in my back yard, no more than 10 feet away from where I watched at my window.

You can barely see three of the hawks in this zoomed image:

***The picture is pretty useless, but if anyone here is both a bird expert and sharp-eyed enough to make sense of this image, I’d love to know which type of hawk these guys are.***

His work is beautiful. He is a great loss to DU and to photography. nt

Refuse to consider Indiana for future Fina Four tournaments. nt

Cute ol' guy! nt

I was surprised that Lemon died so young--cancer would be my guess. I was assuming

that Honey had died, since Great Danes, like other big dogs, tend to have terribly short lifespans.

They are both darling, and watching them makes me squeeze my 3 kitties even tighter!
