Aaaah! Ain't that cute folks? Don't normally do cute (do I?), but I saw these little fellas in the park on Sunday and thought 'aaah'.

So I think spring has sprung here, which means winter cometh for some of you.


Am just off to watch the lunar eclipse; picnic rug, fish and chips and cheap plonk in hand (class all the way).

Wish you were here!

Can't believe I'm the first to come and celebrate with you.
Did your photography course help you achieve this perfect contraluz effect? You did well!

You'll have to tell us how much of the eclipse you really saw. Enjoy the fish and chips for me, none of that cheap takeaway food where I live now!!!

I have just opened my new Avignon blog, I hope you come and visit.

A plonk in hand leads to something on the picnic rug.

Excellent photo so here I go "Ahhhhh". I think this would make lovely wallpaper for my computer. (That's not insulting is it?)

Would love to join you for a picnic; but what is plock?

What a great shot! I think cute is absolutely necessary every once in a while.

Enjoy your eclipse and your plonking! :)

Just because you expect this...

So, why didn't you take the oppurtunity god gave you? One brick, and a cluster of swanlings...
You could have got them all...

Very nice light, Podster. Is that title a nod to the Beatles? If so, well done!

Cute? I think it's beautiful, splendid, radiant with light and energy and sublime, too. Happy spring! Hope you're sleeping better now that the moon has turned.

You're so far away! Let's get together on reypod sometime soon, ok?

It took me awhile to understand that you've captured in this pic the essence of the dragon i call Splendour. Wow. It's Splendour visiting you in Australia!

Tell her hello, please? Thank you!

This is amazing! I like your cute stuff ;) I can't get over the silvery reflection of the water and the highlighted ducklings. Magical moment captured. Thanks...

pod, this is beautiful.
I love the light.
I love the way the mother swan has her graceful neck in a position that shows she is carefully watching over her brood of babies.

Ahh...a mother's love...

Roundabout perfection. Podilicious to the extreme. Cute and classy and cool, that's our pod and his art!

Hopefully your picnic was a success, and no "total eclipse".

Btw you seem to have something goin' on with ducks. Duck and hide ^^

i like your cute stuff as well. ... unless there is something lurking in the tall grasses waiting to snatch them up one by one, silencing the quacking? oh no!

love the light. tis a great shot, sir podness!

That is VERY cute, just like Pod!

I saw a mother mountain goat with her baby (they were like 12 inches from my tent) on my backpacking trip this weekend - also VERY cute.

What Ho Pod-I-like! Hope the eclipse was jolly spiffing.

Just catching up on your posts. More later...just saying hello.

I bet fish and chips in OZ is much better than the greasy soggy pile of stuff we get here. Oh, and don't go making us all unhappy with stories of sun and heat and stuff....everyone in the UK is depressed about the lack of summer...

OK? Got that? Good!

LOts of love....

You and your magic sparkly bits.


This image shimmers on the cusp of cute and sublime: so does that make it "cublime"? (Couldn't be merely "sute"!)

MADAME - tout les felicitations! contraluz? they never taught us that! i want my money back! great to have you back! i'll re-link you again shortly! ;0)

SHELLY - i am agog! do you need a tissue?

GARY - steal away gazza..why would i be insulted by you wanting this for wall paper? not sure what plock is, but plonk is grog, or drink or booze. you see? let's have a picnic someday!

STE - trust you to lower the tone!

WAT - you should go on idol mate, with such a smokey voice ;0p

INC - hurrah! back and on form! ;0P

HHB - indeed!

CATWOMAN - for what? i no comprende?!

JOEL - erm, it wasn't, but i will nod to the beatles for you ;0)

ALICE - erm.......pardon?

The photo is perfectly shimmering and just fine.
And your commentators have fun, I can see, even I understand rather than less a half of them :)

That was a lovely pic. It was nice how it's like shining around the ducklings..

Is it okay to make it my wallpaper? Do you have one that would go with 1024 x 768? :D
