Chatty's Wordless Wednesday on Thursday . . .

Funny

Beautiful


(These were taken from Boston.com and it was a reported on the new 2012 National Geographic winners.)  That was what I wanted to do when I grew up!  lol  I still might have a chance - you think?


Love, Chatty

Looking at beautiful photography makes me happy - what about you?  What makes you happy?  Earth is crammed with so many Heavenly things . . .birds, flowers, friends, colors, animals, laughter, and . . .

The squirrel - LOL and the tiger is most beautiful!

So many things make me happy, too many to list. Mostly it's the small stuff, ya know? :)

You are right. Happy we should all be. I saw the video I think the fox is taken from. Loved it when he dove head first after his prey!
BE HAPPY!

(((HUGS)))
PS: Yep some pictures (art) make me happy!!!

Amazing pics, and reminders of what a beautiful world we live in.

Jeanie said...

I was just thinking this morning about how happy I am to live in such a beautiful place with all the wonders of the Rocky Mountains so close.

Sweet Posy Dreams said...

I've never seen a squirrel quite that upside down, but I have seen them burrow pretty deep in the snow to dig out a walnut or acorn.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

You are so very right -- there really are a lot of things that make me happy. Almost every time I turn around there is something else. Hope you have a great Thursday!

Bev said...

Cute...

Is that a squirrel upside down in the snow? Must've hidden his treasure in there. Yikes! Nature makes me happy. Oh, and photographing it. When I was in my 40s I decided that I wanted a career with National Geographic. Why'd I have to figure that out so late? Oh well!

Laurie said...

oh such great photos, coming here makes me happy everytime!

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

Beth said...

Your post always makes me happier.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I don't think I've ever seen a squirrel do THAT before!

I love beautiful photography of nature and animals too. Today I'm loving the Florida sunshine. Hugs!

Susan said...

Oh yes, Sandie, beautiful photography makes me happy.

Also, fresh flowers, beautiful music, happy children, taking care of my darling little new granddaughter, thrift store shopping and out to lunch with friends, gatherings with family members, a kiss from my love, and every single new day of life!

Thanks for your post. Susan

Theresa said...

Oh goodness, too cute:) What is making me happy today... checking some things off my to do list! You ask how old my Grandson Austin is, he just turned 14 in December! Enjoy your evening dear Sandie, HUGS!

Miss Debbie said...

Sandra said...

Gloria Hood said...

Love those pics! Lots of things make me happy! Miss Mindy most of all!

Inger said...

Being in nature makes me happy. It gives me the gift of peace. And, yes, the vet recommended three smaller meals a day for Samson. This will help rest his pancreas and may help prevent bloat.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

LOL so needed a laugh, thanks! I feel just like that squirrel

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That tiger shot is amazing!
Have a great day dear friend.

Ann said...

I think as long as you are still breathing there is still time to do what you've always dreamed of :)
Love both of those pictures

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

The squirrel is funny! Hope he's just looking for his nut:@)

Renae at simple sequins said...

hey Chatty! Those wonderful things of life from Heaven all make me happy. Those ...and my grandkids. They always make me happy no matter what. :D

The Boston Lady said...

It's funny that you said that about wanting to do that when you grew up. Me too! I wanted to be a National Geographic Explorer. Or work with Jane Goodall. I love photographs, they really are worth a thousand words. Ann

menopausal mama said...

Gorgeous pictures!!! The tiger definitely made me smile today! I'm now following you via GFC.

Daisy said...

That tiger photo is beautiful. Flowers, blue skies, music, good friends, bright colors--so many things make me happy. :)

Dee said...

I am happy because you make me happy.

Crystal Mary said...


YES, these photos are lovely and so real, totally captured in a moment to keep forever. You still have time to be a photographer..
Keep the camera close for those special moments, just like you do. xxx
Photography is a truly amazing thing. You probably remember the old Brownie box camera. Snaps were taken and then you had to wait on the developing. After that, many weren't worth keeping. Now there are no disappointments.. We get to see them straight away.

Catherine said...

National Geographic has some of the best wildlife photos doesn't it? Oh to be at the right place at the right time with your camera. This evening 10 deer ran down the street right in front of my living room window. Where was my camera? Oh yea, way down in the computer room. Rats.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Ms. A said...

The only thing better than looking at beautiful photography, is taking it. I'm not there yet, but I love working on it.

Paula said...

So many beautiful things made by God to make us happy.

Jackie said...

Oh my goodness I love all of the beauty God created. Wow, I couldn't even begin to list them!

The weather turned sour on me and we are rainy and cold again. So my camera vacation is over.

Thanks so much for stopping in even when I was away taking a break. And, thank you very much for the link to Mad Snapper.

I love her blog!

Belle said...

Squirrels crack me up.

Jim said...

My mom used to say you'd better not stay that way or you might freeze that way (like don't wear holey underwear to town in case you get into a wreck).

I hope that fox doesn't stay like too long or he might freeze that way.

Fantastic pics! It always amazes me how some people are able to get such awesome pictures! I love good art of all different kinds... dance, sewing, painting, music. God gave so many people such great gifts! One of yours is to help others smile! I pray He blesses you the way you bless others!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I had to enlarge the 1st one, when I looked I thought it was a post sticking up out of the snow...OMGoodness...that is so funny. [someone said it was a squirrel...in your comments...I think it's a fox LOL]

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

That first picture is HILARIOUS!

Betty Manousos said...

uh-oh!
that #1 picture is too funny!
your posts are always a delight!

Debbie said...

Catching up with you this evening as the winds blow and blow and blowwww. I hope the Atlanta weather isn't moving in around here.

I loved that photo. What makes me happy is more the taking of photos than the looking at them. Not that I'm any kind of a photographer, but I love to capture stuff.
