    All are lovely. But that bluebird on a blue pole is outstanding.

    Great Avian photography! And the chipmunk is so cute!It reminds me of a long tailed field mouse that lived in my wardrobe for a couple of nights - my cat brought it in and it made it's home in there. I tried to tempt it out with dried cat food (the irony), and it would take a piece and hold it in his fore paws to eat. My cat got in one night and I woke up to a scuffling sound; I found my cat with the mouse huddling underneath her, like she was hoarding it. I lifted Emily off (my cat's name), and the mouse fled to my wardrobe again. Apparently my Dad found Emily relaxing on her side in my room while I was at Uni (earlier this week), and the mouse was nestled against her belly like a kitten..Dad managed to catch the mouse and return it outside.
    This is sincerely true. Emily has often been known to retrieve alot of prey - particularly rodents, and not kill them. Sometimes she does though. And she tends to kill birds more often (I guess rodents evoke a more motherly instinct from within her). Her behaviour reminds me very slightly of the wild lioness Kamunyak (if interested, do a Google search), who used to kill/chase off mother oryx, so as to adopt their calves and look after them; to the extent that she would not hunt for fear that other predators would kill her captives while she was away.
