Who We Are

Photo Finish Friday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Yesterday, Mom expressed her desire to head out to Tuttle Creek State Park.  It was cold, cold, cold out, so she and Dad thought it might be a good day to see Eagles.  We took her for a walk before she headed out ...

"I think we need to beef up security, Cam!"
"Mmm... BEEF!"

... and discussed stepping up her security a bit.

After a short conversation, we reached a decision - one of us would guard Dad and Mags back at Ao4 Headquarters and Mom would take "the big guns" with her to Tuttle.

"Who did you THINK I was talking about?!?"

That's right - me!

There was someone right by the dam outlet when we pulled up.  I mind-melded Mom a "be careful" message; she considered going elsewhere until she saw who it was -- our friend Beth!  How cool is that?!?  As Head of Security, this pleased me very much!  (And I'm not just saying that because something Beth said reminded Mom that she had Zuke's treats in her pocket.  Really!!!)  Safety in numbers!  Anyway ... back to Photo Finish Friday!

Here I am, being serious:


Pretty good, don't you think?

Sure, there was a pelican down in the river ...

... but I was working!

"I've got your six, Mom.  
Go ahead and try to get a shot of the heron on the opposite bank while you're at it."

Just because I wasn't looking at it doesn't mean I didn't know it was there.

Great Blue Heron

I was totally in the zone.


Mom said I was a very good girl - I kept her (and Beth!) safe, I was calm and quiet, and Mom got some decent shots.  (For the full set, please click here.)  All in all, a very successful mission!

Thanks for coming along with us!
