Window Peepers!

The cute story about my header photo and my profile photo, at last! This may likely be the last time I reblog from Animal Wonder, with a few exceptions, so I hope you will follow there, too. Thanks! — D

Animal Wonder

Our dining room picture window on the front of our house overlooks our big red oak tree.  It also has a half-moon window above the main window which is always uncovered to allow light into the main part of our home and also affords us a few into the upper part of the tree.  Several years ago, though, I was quite surprised to discover that I had some window peepers who were looking in our house through that half-moon window during the day.  They did not just come peeping once or twice either.  They showed up almost every day for several weeks!  Friends and family did not believe my story about the new window peepers, so I captured a few photos of the peepers to prove my story true.

The first photo below is one of the first window peeper photos that I took in late October 2009 as the…

My Fine Feathered Friends

Yesterday, I introduced the new project at Animal Wonder, and today, I would like to share my introduction to the next 28 days of posts in “My Fine Feathered Friends.” This post shares why I have such a longtime passion for birds and will hopefully provide a frame of reference for all the posts to come this month. 🙂 Blessed beyond measure! — D

Animal Wonder

Over the years, I have been blessed to photograph some truly wonderful birds, both at home and during our travels.  Hubby and I are empty-nesters and now share our home with two beautiful standard poodles.  We love to go camping with the dogs in our RV regularly for many reasons, but just being in nature and enjoying the wildlife is certainly one of the things we love the most.  I especially love birds, and these beautiful winged creatures have always been inspiring and magical to me, even as a child.

One of the first bible verses I remember learning as a child in Sunday School spoke of these wonderful and unique creatures that float freely in the sky above us.  Not only did this verse help me to understand how much God loves me, it stirred a love and appreciation of birds in me at a very early age.  It…

Welcome to NaBloPoMo at Animal Wonder

Animal Wonder is a specific little “dream come true” photo/story project for me, and this year’s National Blog Posting Month challenge (NaBloPoMo) was just the catalyst I needed to finally bring this whimsical little project to reality. Animal Wonder will be a family friendly site and hopefully one that even children can also enjoy over time, too. While I will post every day there in November, I will continue posting there even afterward, just not nearly as often.

Just to clarify, FiveFs is not going anywhere, even though I will likely defer to posting more at Animal Wonder in November. It’s time to kick things up a bit and finally fulfill a little dream to share. Hopefully, it will be a fun experience for all as we embark on a quest of some fine feathered friends in November, and I hope you will join the fun there, too! I have also added some links to Animal Wonder on the home page at FiveFs, including a new permanent page at the top. — D

Animal Wonder

Welcome to Animal Wonder! I have a passion for photography, and I love to photograph animals and watch their antics so very much. For quite some time, I have dreamed of bringing my love of animals and my love of photography together in a fun way to share with others, and at long last, my little dream project has now come to be a reality here!

I will also be participating in BlogHer’s NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) each day during the entire month of November here at Animal Wonder. I can think of no better way to kick-off a brand new blogging project than to commit to a post a day for the next thirty days.

NaBloPoMo November 2014

For the blogging challenge this month, I will share my love of birds over the years through some great photos and some interesting stories!
