    A bath time story

    Okay being somewhat intimidated by Mr D's insistence that every pix should tell a story and not wishing to be set upon by a rabid, bagpipe skirling haggis should mine fail to do so, here is my latest pathetic attempt at pictorial story telling.
    The 'personna dramatae' are red tailed fire finches who were released unharmed after the shoot. There is absolutely no truth to the rumour that they were made into pies to avoid paying them their modelling fees.
    Thanks for viewing and for any comments you may care to post.
    Cheers

    What pretty little finches Ken. Much more colorful than the finches here. I would love to see a nice close up of one sometime. I think you did what you aimed to here, nice series. Got a out of me.

    I prefer science fiction and westerns to all this romantic nonsense.

    Also like your choice of bird bath, the terracotta is quite photogenic.

    Oh Ken! You bring a smile to my face with every post! Wonderful comments, story and images.

    I'll bet you could write the kind of childrens books that adults would just love to read to their kids at bedtime!

    Thank you for your kind comments Frank. So, me write bed time yarns to entertain rug rats hey? Hmmm... okay, let's start with a poem. Kids love doggeral verse...

    Sometimes I think I might
    take up a pen to write
    tales which don't delight
    but scare little children, late at night.

    So, Frank, how's that for starters?

    SO Mr D. We live to the West of Seymour where these pic were taken. Does this qualify them as Westerns?
    And as you are a member of the above esteemed society, can I ask, is it true that rabid Haggises ( or should that be Haggi if there is more than one?) smear themselves with lamp black and play the pipes whilst naked? And that they can only pipe one tune, namely, "The Black Bare?"

    Thank you for Wendy, Paul and Dave for your very nice and supportive comments, which I am sure I don't deserve, but which were most appreciated and will most certainly encourage me to persist... for which you will now bear the responsibility!

    LOL! I love it!

    You're a poet as well!

    Kids just love scary stories. Just check out the theme behind any nursery rhyme!

    Don't forget to add repetition. Kids need that to help develop a false sense of security!!

    Come along kiddies, Uncle UCCI is going to read us all a bedtime story.

    A wonderful post, your images and poetry Ucci and the comments. Both brought and chuckle as I read. And now I know it is not Donald but Mr. D who is a rabid bagpipe skirling haggis, just smiles....

    Yep, that 's right. Once I coat myself in haggis grease and mount my bagpipes on the back of my camera bag, I grow hair (wish I could on my bald patch) all over my body, start salivating and go out onto the wild moors to search for good landscape shots.

    A firm Disclaimer, without equivocation please!

    Never at any time did I intend to infer, imply or even vaguely hint that Mr D is a rabid, pipe skirling haggis. To all who know, love and understand him, he is a most wonderfully, kind, gentle, creative soul who wouldn't harm a fly. However, it is known that he keeps a kennel of attack trained, killer haggises, which he is prone to unleash and set upon any Sassenachs who get up his wick! The Australian cricket and rugby teams are considered especially fair game in this.
    I apologize unreservedly to Mr D and his family for any such misunderstanding which may have arisen in this. I don't think Mr D looks anything like a haggis, rabid or otherwise. However I cannot speak for his family in this matter.
