To You in the States: Hope You had a safe and happy Holiday. It is approaching midnight in real time here at Kates Cabin and I think the fireworks have ended in the neighborhood. In rural areas, rules are relaxed so people can shoot off the fireworks in their backyard. (This is crazy with no rain). At dark, many people begin popping them off. After an hour, half the people have run out of their fireworks. About another hour and the rest dropped off to the remaining 2 or 3 yo-yos that spent too much money on things that go up in smoke in an instant! (I am against fireworks as they scare the birds and all the other animals). All is quiet now and back to the normal crickets and frogs. Your photostudy tonight is a Parade of Birds from here at the Sanctuary. Enjoy!
Look at this great photo I caught of Elisabeth:
