Camera-Critters #26

As the sun begins its journey to set,
casting shadows on the world which it is telling goodnight,
somewhere, in The Middle of Nowhere Turn Left at The Cow,
a young creature also starts a journey of her own.

This is a journey of major importance,
this journey from yard to barn.
The sun has done its job for yet another day,
providing a nice warm sunny spot for the critter to lay
and visit with friends and neighbors.

"So, how long you lived 'round these parts?"

But, now the sun has gone, and so must she.
So, the journey begins...(c) Misty DawnS

Ahhh, but there are perks to this journey...
very important perks, namely...

So, you walk a little while,
and then you eat for a little while.
Hey, journeys from yard to barn
take a lot outta a girl.
You've got to replenish your energy
with one of those high energy drinks that are all the craze right now.
This girl prefers the high-energy drink called
(Don't worry if you've never heard of it, it's new on the market).
It's good stuff, makes your eyeballs spin' round, and

you lose all sense of manners.
"I don't need no stinkin' napkin!"

Once completing the journey, the critter is ready to enter
the dreamland world full of green pastures and endless hay fields.
But, first she must be lifted by one of those human-people over the
entry from cement to building.
(Her legs are still not right and we sometimes have to 'help' her out)
"I now bid you all, sweet dreams and goodnight."
(c) Misty DawnS

Are y'all getting sick of her yet? I just realized I've done three CCs about her in a row... sorry, bout that! I just can't resist her.

Forgive me, I didn't name her "Shirley" because... well, because that's my Mother-in-law's name. hehehehe.

Evening on the farm is very evocative.


Cute little cow, lovely pictures. I loved the first one with just the shadow.


Excellent photos. Like dirk, I really like the first one. The shadow tells a story. Nicely done.

That is such a parable of life, Mist. Great work - and I love the first shot especially.


a sweet little thing.


To be honest I didn't realize that it was three weeks in a row, especially by the time you get through all of the other posts. She is very cute and I can understand the need to use her over and over again for posts. Great little commentary to go with the photos. Thanks for sharing.
