    Nice evening, today. Couple of the girls decided to emulate the old Drifters' song and get `up on the roof'.

    Of course, pretty soon, it was all Lenny Kravitz.... (our RP/Slate mutt):

    Your RP/slate mutt looks like a mottled black!

    She should be more barred with each molt.

    ivan3,
    you need a good camera for "freeze" the flight of your turkeys. Your photoes are rather blurred.

    The camera performed exactly as I wanted it to (capture motion/light through and on wings). Motion blur is not to everyone's taste (why I referenced Lenny Kravitz rather than Ferlin Husky). I didn't want her looking like the ceramic hummingbirds suspended from the frame of our kitchen window.
