Shoot Me NowThanks

Published on Wednesday, November 30, 2016 by

This month’s photo challenge theme was “Thanks.”  I have so much to be thankful for!

1. I am thankful to finally see the two eagles who I knew lived in my neighborhood.  They were too far to get a great photo, but that didn’t matter to me.  I was simply thankful to see not one, but two!


2.  I believe this pelican was nearing the end of his life.  I am thankful I was able to capture his beauty before he left.

2.  I was OH SO THANKFUL to see Big Boy one early cold morning.  I only see him about two times a year, so this was a big event for me!

3.  I am thankful my teenage daughter ate breakfast with me on the deck.  I am also thankful for my rescue dogs.  Moon is truly the love of my life.

5.  And speaking of Moon… I didn’t initally appreciate him waking me up early but was thankful he did after seeing one of the most magical sunrises I have ever seen.

  • That’s a lot of things to be thankful for. There are so many things to be thankful for if we just take the time to see them.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    • You are right… just the blue in the sky alone… there is so much beauty around us!

  • Tamara Gerber

    The animals seemed to be equally grateful to see you – why else would they “pose” so nicely for you? Love your shots, especially the eagles!

    • Our critters are usually pretty good about standing for a shot for me. Except the Kingfisher at my friend’s lake house. That guy flies by super fast and MOCKS us as he does…. like “ha ha ha you will NEVER get my picture!”

  • What beautiful photos!!! Love them all. Moon is adorable. Give him a pat and a hug from me.

    WOW…the photo of the sunrise is a beyond words kind of beautiful.

    • I can’t tell you how stunning it was. Pictures don’t do it justice. It was like a golden crown forming in the air. SO STUNNING!

    Beautiful list (and photographs) of things to be thankful for, Katherine! That sunrise is STUNNING! Outstanding capture!

    Love the picture of the eagles on the wires! What a gorgeous silhouette against a beautiful blue sky!

    Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving, my friend! Have a super weekend!

  • SO many things to be thankful for indeed! A great set of photos for this month. The sunrise is always worth it.Living on the water — or near it — to be able to see them a little more often would be amazing.

    Wow – your pictures are so beautiful. Seeing two eagles together is amazing, but also the pelican and the deer – so thankful for the joy of nature. Your dog is gorgeous and I think he should get extra treats for waking you up to see that amazing sunrise.

    I always enjoying browsing through your PBC photos, but this month was a particular treat because of all the animals. We also are lucky enough to have a big buck that appears in our neighbourhood a couple of times a year. Haven’t seen him since about October… As for the sunrise, just wow! As soon as I saw it I thought of an imperial crown in shining gold. We’re all lucky that Moon got you up early enough that we get to enjoy the view too.
