Animal Wednesday - what the hey????


It's a Bird! it's a Plane! Nope - it's a JUMPER!!

We watched jumpers on Saturday - jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and swoop thru the air - I'll post some more picture of this amazing "sport" soon....

But I really wanted to show you this - next to the jumping field there were cows and pigs grazing together. This is something that I have never seen before, and it was pretty funny and cute looking.



And that same day I looked out my back window and saw this brown color. Aha said I - think you're going to chew my hosta's do you - and I stomped out onto the back porch....

and scared his/her little brown butt away from my beautiful fall blooming....

...flowers.

Happy Animal Wednesday!

Better get some Liquid Fence to spray on those flowers. He/she will be back. It works for me. Pigs and Cows together.. who knew. :)

Yeah, that's a new one on me too,,,pigs and cows. Would never have thought it.

Can't imagine jumping out of a plane,,,gives me the heebie-jeebies.
The deer are so beautiful, but I know they are real pests. We have the same problems with bunnies here,,,lots and lots of hungry bunnies.

I think you better bring in a bouquet of your flowers to enjoy before the deer beat you to them. It is a little odd seeing pigs and cows together. I wonder if they are thinking it a bit odd to see a human soaring. HAW.

I would love deer in my back yard! As for jumping, narrowly escaped it in April but i think I might be pushing jelly uphill with a hot pin if I get away without falling out of a plane next year . .

lunatics is what i think about those jumpers.

Oh, I want to jump from a plane, but I think that ship has sailed, not sure my knees would make the landing. Love the pigs and cows together and the deer! xoxo

oh baino has plans!

mim, i just learned that pigs and tigers comfortably share space too! pigs must have special attributes i should also aspire to!

i love deer. i hate that they are pursued for sport.

been thinking of you, miss you, almost time as soon as time cooperates!

love

Those deer can sure be a problem for the flowers but they haven't been too bad this year around my house...knock on wood...

You had an interesting day with all the odd and interesting things you saw.

HAW... sweet deer in your area...my daughter has them all the time in her backyard. And as for the jumpers I love watching them floating down; but of course I would never ever do such a thing; and I love the flower in the end too.

Hi Mim! We've given up trying to control the deer here. I just plant things they don't like to eat, and put everything else up on the deck. ;) As for jumping out of airplanes..uh, no. Maybe if I was a lot younger, and had fabulous knees. Which I am not and don't. haha. xo Pam

You'd never catch me jumping out of a perfectly good airplane either! Or doing bungee jumping or those things at the fair that fling you in the air. No way! Good for you catching a moving deer on camera - it looks so reddish. We don't have deer like that here, just moose.

Happy little animals everywhere.
I don't think I could ever jump from an airplane. No wait, I'm sure I couldn't!

Robin said...

Sailing through the air would be wonderful! sigh..... I guess "flying" is in my blood as my Mum was a Flight Attendant for Pan Am and my dad was a pilot....

Love the Pigs and Cows.....don't they look peaceful together...

I love the deer photos - particularly the one where he (she) is leaping away! If you do something, Pam has a good idea...plant something they don't like.

Sorry to have missed "AW"...the only *Animals* I have been around lately are two-footed opera singers!

Love,
