FYI: "The catbird seat" is an American English idiomatic phrase used to describe an enviable position, often in terms of having the upper hand or greater advantage in any type of dealing among parties. The phrase derives from the common catbird's habit of making mocking calls from a secluded perch.

We get catbirds every year but this year they are especially plentiful, whereas the goldfinches have all but disappeared.  Seems like there is never a catbird never more than ten feet away perched up above giving you the eye, as if to say “who invited you here?”

The catbirds (and/or its offspring) posted above, have returned to my backyard every May 1st, for the last 5 or more years. It's uncanny.

Thanks G. My Parents had an Indian motorcycle when I was very young. And it was the color of this one. It was the only transportation we had at the time, so my Brother ride on the gas tank, then my Father, then me between him and my Mother in the back. My mother taught me how to sway with the turns to keep the motorcycle from falling over. It was great fun. And this artwork brought back so many memories.

That's a real beauty, Kavia. The one my Parents had was a 1947 Indian Chief Roadmaster.  My Father bought it from a dealer who was going out of business at a very low price. It had a buddy seat as well. It was painted a Baby Doll blue, so of course my Mother had to give it a name so she called ride 'Baby Doll'.

Wait a sec, as I've been saying for a while my vision has been waning, and now I'm not sure if what I said was a little Indian isn't the bike's seat, but isn't that a little head and hat at the back of the seat? I'm confused.

Not sure what you are referencing, Buzz. I'll blow it up a bit for you and hope you will be able to discern the image more clearly.....

The only thing on the back of the seat is a butterfly. Hopefully, you will be better able to see things more clearly.

When I first looked at the seat it looked to me like a little person leaning backwards - what appeared to me was the seat was a body topped by a pink face with a blue hat, which is why I said a little Indian riding a big Indian.  As I said, my vision is waning.

5.5.6  Buzz of the Orient  replied to  Raven Wing @5.5.5    3 months ago

But, considering that my vision is not as good as it was, can anyone interpret the seat to what I thought I saw?  To me it looked like a person leaning backward and holding on to the sides of the seat.

Thanks guys. I don't feel all that bad. I just have a cough that won't quit, the kind that makes it hard to sleep. Congestion, too.

I took a home covid test this morning and it was negative, so that's good. Guess I just picked up a standard chest cold somewhere. Probably grocery shopping a few days ago.

Funny how I always seem to get colds in the summer and never in the winter like a normal person. :)

Years ago I'd sometimes see turkey vultures early in the mornings while fishing on the Osage River, atop dead trees with their wings stretched out straight. Just sitting there like that. I guess they were drying the dew off their wings. Always reminded me of totem poles.

We had hundreds of turkey vultures around Table Rock Lake, Dig. 

We had this huge dead tree on our property and a dozen or more would be sitting on the limbs with their wing spread out drying them off. It always looks spooky as well, especially in the evening as the sun was setting.

Those are  great photos, Dig. The purple butterfly is awesome. I get those kind of 'shroom looking growths in my yard area now and then. I have to dig them out by the roots so they won't come back.  They make the place look awful. But, now I pour ammonia on them and that kills them down to the root and Voila! They are gone and don't come back.

I apply the ammonia with a small eye dropper right on the roots of the 'shrooms and they shrivel up and die within minutes. I tried dropping the ammonia on the caps themselves, but, that did not work all that well. So I tried dropping the ammonia around the roots and they were 'toast' in seconds.

The technique you are using for this painting could be one of a kind. You could also combine it with other techniques to provide even more unique paintings.

Busch Gardens.  While I was waiting for a few family members to return from this ride because the lines were long and it was dreadfully hot, I kept trying to snap a good photo of this spot.  It’s hard because the ride moves so fast that it took several tries.  When I finally got it just right I zoomed in and there they were right in the front row, so it worked out especially well.

That really is awesome, Kavika. The lone tree, the couple enjoying the sunset sitting by the lake, and the beautiful reflection of the setting sun and clouds on the lake. Very serene and peaceful.

Another beauty, Mac. Softer colors, but, every bit as awesome.

This group is my primary reason for coming to NT now. Sharing and learning from others, and enjoying the wide variety of artwork and other items of interest. Gives me something to look forward to and work towards.
