  5. Smew, is that really what this bird is? I have never seen one or heard of it, but I can well understand why he would be a favorite. Awesome picture, Monica ...

  6. Heisann, en som kan nyte livet og ta det med ro... vi burde gjøre mer som disse vadefuglene!

  7. I so enjoyed seeing your visit to my link up so that I could come visit you. Thank you so much. Also, I learned something. Did not know the name of this bird and what Smew Bird was. Also, I see you use CS5. Don't you just love making your photos into art with photo software? I'm still learning even though I've had the software for few years now.
    Happy Tuesday. :)
