Sunday (11-15-09 Fins, Feathers, and Fur)

This week's Sunday Stills photo challenge is Fins, Feathers, and Fur!

I was at WalMart the other day and this tree was in the parking lot. I was impressed with the yellow leaves against the blue sky. Then I noticed all the big black birds in it.
Can you see the birds? I think there were five or six!What kind of bird are they? They're all over the parking lot!
I haven't taken photos of my cats for a while. Here's Simba from last night.

And here's Daisy snoozing.

Okay, so I cheated on this last one! I took this photo at our local aquarium a few months ago.

So here's a poor photo of one of my very own fish. For more sunday stills, please visit here.

Here in Texas we call those black birds Crackles--pronounced crac like croc but with the "a" sound. And the rest like "hulls." Of course that could just be the way we say it. LOL
crac-hulls. We have them by the tree full and wire line full in our parking lots too! The tree is beautiful with that color! Nice pet photos and you did get some fins! :)

Very nice photos! The black birds in the trees are great and what's better than catching a snoozing animal. So peaceful and sweet.

Oh we call those Magpies. If that is right? What is with walmart and having those black birds in their parking lots? They are in every walmart parking lot!! LOL!!! Maybe walmart moves them in when they build a store!! ha ha ha!
