What a brill photo, hope he does'nt get to wet when he leaves the bird table.

1 May, 2012

 

One of my cats was like this the other night - he got too nosey and fell in the bath as it was running away!!

1 May, 2012

 

I fear he might clarice! The next one to visit looked even wetter.
Oh no Scottish, I bet he wasn't happy!

1 May, 2012

 

No he was not Sticki he stomped about the rest of the night - fighting with his brothers!

1 May, 2012

 

Poor cat! His pride was hurt!!

1 May, 2012

 

We had Bacon,egg,mushrooms and tomato's,Sticki..a very late breakfast ! Lol..

1 May, 2012

 

Breakfast for tea bloomer? Did you miss out on the two earlier meals?

1 May, 2012

 

Yes,you got it in one,Sticki..and no ,I didn't miss out on the other two,or the coffee morning with friends,either..Lol.
Just been asked if I want a coffee now...or a mini Magnum...the latter wins ! :O))

1 May, 2012

 

Have two! They are only little!

1 May, 2012

 

Only one left now Sticki..so need to have something to look forward to,till I go down to Aldi...just as good as other makes,and cheaper :o)

1 May, 2012

 

You don't want to know how much I enjoyed/how many of the new ice creams that have nuts and caramel in.

1 May, 2012

 

I think I can guess,Sticki..I love the ones with the nuts on the chocolate ...OH likes the white chocolate ones,but I don't so I get the others...bliss.:o)

1 May, 2012

 

There is a very new one, by C..........ys there are three in a packet, I'm not saying any more!

1 May, 2012

 

mmm..think I can guess,Sticki..I will look out for those ..well,one has to do the taste test,doesn't one?

1 May, 2012

 

Absolutely! Part of my job surely? Product research?

1 May, 2012

 

Well,that's one name for it :o)

1 May, 2012

 

Thanks Bloomer, I just sat down after a long day in the garden, pets all fed, washing up done, coffee & Goy. This was the first thing I've looked at & just had to get up again, go out to the dogroom to get a magnum (full sized) because you mentioned it. Very nice & nearly all gone, Lol.

1 May, 2012

 

ooooh bloomer ~ tempting willinilli!! thats naughty!!!

dont blame you willinilli!!!

1 May, 2012

 

Touble is it was my last one, I will have to start on the coffee icecream!

1 May, 2012

 

oh no!!! you could maybe go to the shops tomorrow, if this weather continues do you think they might reduce the price of ice cream????

1 May, 2012

 

Hope they do, then I can throw out all OH ice lollies un fill it up for me!

1 May, 2012

 

or get a new freezer???

1 May, 2012

 

Good shot Sticki :-)

1 May, 2012

 

I've got 2 as it is! Rather spend the money on a new camara like yours, what one have you got?

1 May, 2012

 

thanks SL ~ lots of easy opportunities really!

i like it willinilli, its a canon G12; will do manual or all the settings you could want i think [its not an SLR]

1 May, 2012

 

Whats SLR? Lol dont know much about camaras.

1 May, 2012

 

single lens reflex ~ they are the bigger super ones that can take wonderful pictures ~ the real photographers have them!!!

1 May, 2012

 

SLR cameras means you look at the picture you will actually take rather than through a view finder to see what you want to take.

1 May, 2012

 

Oh well not for me then Lol.
Your pic is brilliant so must be a good one :-)
Just PM you.

1 May, 2012

 

found the PM, thank you ~ very helpful.

no, i cant understand all of the options on an SLR, the nice thing about mine is you can begin to learn some of them but you can have it on automatic if you want!!!

small enough to go in your bag too!!

1 May, 2012

 

Great, have got camara on my birthday list.

1 May, 2012

 

when is your birthday?

1 May, 2012

 

Not til Aug, but I always get my prezzie in advance, Lol.

1 May, 2012

 

good idea!!!

1 May, 2012

 

Great shot sticki we get a couple on our bird table too, they are like hoovers. It costs us a small fortune in bird food each week.

3 May, 2012

 

thanks treetop

this was the bread they particularly seemed to like, robin took turns and a few visits from great tit, nuthatch and jay!!! [but the jay was on the floor ~ no photos sadly]

3 May, 2012

 

Great picture Sticki

9 May, 2012

9 May, 2012

9 May, 2012

9 May, 2012

Hi Sticky, lovely photo of your little friend. We have one of these too. LOL. He dug up some of his hoard yesterday and sat there and ate them. In the winter he buried nuts everywhere in our garden.

10 May, 2012

 

there are several that visit here and im wondering if its too early to look out for any babies yet?
i have never seen them bury any of the nuts but they do dig around the garden a bit.

10 May, 2012

 

They dig a hole, spit out the nuts into it cover them up with soil and pat it down with their front paws.

10 May, 2012

 

dont think i fancy eating them myself then!!!

10 May, 2012

 

Unless you were desperate Sticky a definate NO! LOL. But to a squirrel a great larder in the garden........

10 May, 2012

 

:-)

10 May, 2012

 

I think she has some grains in her right "hand", which looks so human, lol.

11 May, 2012

 

i think she has katarina, possibly a nut or seeds??

11 May, 2012

 

I really miss the ones that used to wreck our nut and seed hangers now they haven't been for over a year. New neighbours moved in with 4 cats at about the same time as they disappeared. Great shot Sticki.

12 May, 2012

 

oh thats interesting i didnt realise the cats might frighten them away, i have one cat but the squirrels seem to laugh at her!!
thanks HB

12 May, 2012

 

great shot sticki :o))

12 May, 2012

 

thanks sanbaz, they havent been here for a few days?
