Photo Finish Friday: Howl-oween

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with Photo Finish Friday!  Since today is Howl-oween, Cam and I thought we'd share some really scary pictures with you!  The first ones are from our mom's foray out to Tuttle Creek State Park last weekend.  You can see her whole album at this link, but here are our creepiest favorites!

The sunrise over the foggy canyon is enough to make me want to howl:


Here is a shot of the very rare and very frightening Two-Headed Double Crested Cormorant - and its ghoul-friends!


... I mean "gull" friends.

How about a prehistoric-looking Great Blue Heron, swooping down in the fog!!???!!


I'd hate to be the fish on the receiving end of his attack!

Even the road into the park was eerie!


Mom and her friend explored lots of different areas, even going through spider-infested woods!


The spider who wove that had to be the size of a Malamute!

Closer to home, we also have some scary goings-on!  Not just the Giant Cats we showed you the other day!  Worse than them --- it's these Straw People who don't say anything, but make weird gestures with their straw arms and legs!!!  Here I am this morning, giving them a piece of my mind!

"You don't scare ME, Straw People!  No way, no how!!!"

My dad said I was very brave.  Mom and Cam walked right past them.  RIGHT PAST THEM!  Can you believe that?!?!

"Oh, Maggie, Maggie, Maggie..."

Sure, Cam talked a good game this morning, but check out this video from a couple days ago!

If it doesn't play, please click here.  Yeah.

Anyway, have a happy and SAFE Howl-oween, everyone!  Remember - no bolting out the front door, no eating costume parts, and NO chocolate!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
