Mystery revealed

I just love Pied-billed Grebes. But they don't love my camera. They have a knack for diving - or sinking, as only a grebe can do - the second I aim at them. This one was unusually cooperative, but kept its distance. They and Belted Kingfishers are high on my nemesis llist.

Finally got the back door replaced, but he left a lot of broken glass on and around the back steps. He was supposed to come back yesterday to clean it up. Anybody surprised he didn't show? (Everybody thank me now for backspacing out the little soap-box speech about work ethics/quality - or lack thereof.) 8-}

Great shots of the grebe. I really like the second one with the water lily leaves floating on the water. Don't get my started about business/work ethics. We have something going on with our air-conditioning right now that is pushing me to switch companies. In short, most businesses act as if they don't give a sh*t about customers anymore. Why am I not surprised?

Ohhhh...cute shot!

(P.S. How do you and FC get that list on the left of bloggers and their latest posts? I like that!)

Nice pics! I like the grebes, too. The second picture looks like he is smiling. :)

Cedrorum, if you switch companies, will it be any better? The attitude is pervasive. It's like they're doing you a favour by taking your money. >8\

SwampAngel, its blogger's new page element. Just click 'customize' and add an element. Should be the first choice of the list. I love knowing when a new post has been added... saves me lots of time.

Jena, I noticed his smile, as well. 8-]
