Macro Monday

The guineas were coming over every day to visit with our rowdy Rocky. Every morning I could hear their calls. First five, then four, then three, and now I haven't seen any for days and days. My daughter in law thinks a cougar her and my son have seen running in the bean fields may have gotten them.:(

or these Bobcats

  2. What a beautiful pattern. From your label I am thinking a Guinea fowl feather? The detail on it is remarkable.

  5. Guineas are pretty self reliant. They may still be out there somewhere. A cougar! Yikes!

  8. Awww. But doesn't the Game & Fish claim there isn't a "viable breeding population" of cougars/panthers in the state? Ha! I know we've seen and heard them around here regardless of what they say!

    Beautiful photo!

  9. There are many critters that can make a meal out of guineas which is too bad as they don't really know how to defend themselves..

  10. What a pretty feather! Nature can be cruel but a cougar has to eat too. Keep your pets safe.

  12. That is a very pretty picture. I think that is always the problem with guineas. They just become meals to easy.

  16. I hope not! Guineas are just so neat. Sometimes I just wish we could all be vegetarians!

  18. That is sad news about the guineas. I hope they just moved on to a new area. Beautiful feather.

  19. Beautiful image! Sad sometimes but necessary, how nature works. It is all part of the plan.

  20. That picture reminded me that just last week as I was cleaning through some things, I found a package of guinea fowl feathers for my husbands fly tying hobby. He was happy that I found them and gave them to him :)
    It would be sad if your guineas disappeared because of predators.

    Stopping by to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
