Mylar balloon found today onthe bank of my creek~
whether it was a released balloon or a balloon from someone's garbage
up the creek, it doesn't matter, this is litter and litter that DOES NOT
biodegrade...it's aluminum! Please make sure your trash is put safely in a container
and that you do not release helium balloons into the atmosphere!
thanks from a Master Naturalist and her wildlife friends...
further information where some info was taken from
" One side will tell you that balloons are great for making kids happy, making the sky look pretty, and increasing sales. The other will tell you that balloons are often mistaken for food by marine creatures, and that the ribbons used to tie them can become entangled in birds' beaks, and around the necks of birds and marine animals.
Despite balloonaholics bombarding anybody who will listen with rather suspect evidence to the contrary, the facts suggest that balloons released into the environment really do pose a serious threat to wildlife - and any threat to wildlife today is a threat we could well do without, especially when it comes from something as utterly pointless as a balloon release. "
MORE IMPORTANT INFORMATION;
"For many species of sea turtles, their main diet consists of jellyfish. They mistake balloons and plastic bags for a meal, usually their last.

I will not post horrid photos of dead or suffering animals due to balloons, but
you can sure look them up for yourself, and I hope people will think ONCE before releasing a balloon into the atmosphere INTENTIONALLY..
thanks! Save the wildlife!

she must have been killed this morning or late last night. She only ever went out in winter, she loved the cold weather with her warm soft coat. She came to me last night with her meowtalk, and asked me to let her out... I did...it always makes me feel sick after I let them out ( I don't like any cats to be outside) but I do...they want it, they are happy about it, and that makes me happy...til I find them lying on the road. She was hit 4yrs ago, broke both her back legs, she healed up and she didn't even limp. I guess she forgot about the road it had been so long ago...

Just received my brand new Nikon D3200, now just to figure out how to use it!
Ken Rockwell is a great teacher of photography and reviewer of cameras, and I have learned much from him . These are the very first bird photos taken in the morning, then by afternoon hopefully you can see my knowledge has increased, still a long way to go with white balance etc...but I sure love this camera!
afternoon with the Nikon D3200
wow, it's really hard getting two birds in a photo in focus!
My very first Pine Siskin! to see one and to photograph one!
