The Things I see...

Driving down the highway...


Jungle Mom:  Honey, can you pull over?


Yekwanaman:  Why?

Jungle Mom:  Because I want to take a picture of the ostrich.


Yekwanaman:  What ostrich? You must be seeing things!





Jungle Mom:  NOPE!

We used to raise ostrich, and they can be hard to see, even among weeds in NW KS!

This is a great picture of a great Ostrich. Sometimes I miss those creatures, but then, I come back to my senses! LOL!

Once a Peacock showed up at our place. I never figured out where it came from, there's nothing for miles around. It made horrible noises and made a mess on the cars. Then one day it just moved on. I never figured that one out.

We have herds of ostriches at our ranch, running around in the wild. It´s neat to see them!

What a pair of eyes. I knew it had to be there but didn't see. I am sure he was concentrating on his driving with his precious cargo on board!

I driven my an Ostrich farm. I would be surprised if I ever got close enough to take a picture.

It looks quite lovely.
