Pics & Pieces

*details discovered*
raindrops captured on a
fragile spider web on the ground 


*daily scene*

*where I stand*....
looking out my window 
I see birds hopping around, 
looking for a treat-
this bird is a new visitor 
I don't know exactly what he is- 
a warbler, maybe? 

*starts with g*
Good to know:
a twenty second hug releases the bonding 
hormone and neurotransmitter, 
Oxytocin, 
which is nature's 
antidepressant and anti-anxiety hormone. 
(I don't know if this is factual or not, but I believe it works)

  1. Hello, kudos to your grandaughter for taking the polar plunge. I think your unknown bird maybe the Pine Warbler? Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  3. I did a polar bear plunge once. The chill made my voice high and squeaky--at least I BLAME IT ON THE COLD WATER.

  4. yikes on the polar plunge... brrrr she is brave. that is a cute little bird whatever he is and the droplets on the spider web rate AMAZING!
    i do believe hugging helps people, but only if that person is not like me. i can't stand to be hugged, especially br strangers. i put up with family but barely. we have a couple of huggers at the YMCA and i finally told one of them i do not want to be hugged. she said fine but sometimes she forgets until she goes to do it and i back up. i have seen it work on people at funerals and in high stress conditions. now if some one put a cat or a dog in my arms, or i can hug anything with 4 legs, that is what releases my hormones.

  7. I like them all. I remember water does do that on webs but I have never taken a photo of it. It is mysterious looking at first.

  8. Cool rain drops, nice art.
    Hugs, I used to, now I don't. It's a breathing thing - I can't.

  10. Some interesting shots, I love the yellow bird but think it has a sad expression on it's face. Good for your grand daughter, not an easy thing to take part in.

  13. What beautiful details of the water! Hugs are good! I had a friend in high school that had a hugging contest with me to se who could get more hugs in one day. I won! I'm pretty sure I would not have the guts to do a polar plunge. Good for your granddaughter! Thanks so much for joining me at Friday's Hunt.

  14. Good to know the polar bear plunge is a fund raiser in other parts of the world. Where I live in southern Ontario, a hole is chopped in the ice near shore and the plungees are hauled out by firemen in wet suits.
    The hug data is interesting and I could see this being true also.

  22. Love the picture of the raindrops. I don't know about a polar plunge. I think I'm a bit too wimpy for something like that. I do like hugs though :)
