YAY.......LOL>... not a place for swimming its for sure! :_
The cat painting is looking awesome, you really should paint more creatures into your paintings, I think you do a wonderful job, and it shows your versatility in subjects! I am very excited to see the painting when its done, I hope you will post it!
Thank you Candace! I'll be posting it in just a few minutes!!! >^__^
I was getting confused looking for the alligator in the last one :)
I used to be terrified of alligators when I was younger! We lived next to a resaca and my parents never let us go outside to play. There was one alligator in particular who was a trouble maker. The wardens finally relocated it after a neighbors horse disappeared. It was the largest alligator they had pulled from that lake; 16 feet! O_O
Wow!!! 16 feet? I'd be scared of that one!!!
I very rarely see any over 6' (including tail) around here. Usually if they get much bigger than that they are relocated to the rural areas. I still don't get too close to the little ones - I have a feeling they'd bite my fingers off if they had a chance!
oh my gosh!!! You are SOOOOOOOOO lucky! I'm TOTALLY jealous!! I would LOVE to see alligators all the time! That was fun that you were proving your theory, that sounds like something I'd try!! :)
Aren't they the best? I'll try to get some snapshots of them out of the water sometime - they are so cute and smiley looking!
Oh my! They are a little larger than I imagined from your previous description...when you said small or tiny.. those looks big to me. How neat!
LOL, your blurry pics look similar to the quality pics people take of UFOs, and lockness monster... is this a hoax? (wink) ;)
LOL! "In Search Of..." (the TV show) was on while I was posting these and it was talking about Loch Ness and other Lake Monsters, hehe. One of these days I'll get a good closeup.....
That's awesome! Thanks for sharing the alligator stuff. ^_^ They're such amazing creatures. I'm sorry you missed the picture of the BIG one. But hey, if you start carrying your camera to the PO all the time (like you said), then I'm sure you'll have plenty more opportunities to snap a photo! =)
hmmmmmm......does look quite a bit like the Loch Ness Monster photos!! Tee Hee! Wow! I will have to be more careful when I am visiting you next time and go out jogging around those lakes!
By the way....the kitties are turning out GREAT!!!!
Thank you Mom!!! I just scanned in the painting and I'll post it asap!!!
Yep - you wouldn't believe how many alligators you'll see if you just look closely!
I just took a glance at your cam. Wow, those cats looks very life-like. I am sure Carrie will be very happy with it.
Nice pics!! SCary!
Jas, The cats look awsome.. I like them so much that I was thinking of having you commission a picture of my two cats.. but your smallest size starts at 450.. *cries* oh well.... but they look amazing!
I want to swim with the wild turkey! hehe Are you used to seeing those alligators around? I would so freak, I'd never be able to stroll around because my chair only goes about 7mph!
Those cats are looking so rocking cool! How do you paint something so well like that when I haven't seen you paint cats?
Thank you Erika!! I've scanned it in and will be posting shortly. I'm really happy that it turned out so well - these are the first kitties I've painted since I was a kid, hehe.
I'm more fascinated by the gators than scared. They really don't bother people very much, and most of them are pretty small. I still can't get over that they are right by people's houses and parking lots and stuff - I grew up only seeing them in zoos.
I want to see you paint, but I'm on a Mac at work all day! Blah! I want to see the process too!
Alligator heaven! I love watching any kind of animal in his or her natural environment.
Can't wait to see the kitties!!
That is so cool!! I'm so jealous of where you live, of course I'm sure you're sick of hearing me say that ;)
::blush:: Thank you, Heather! >^___^
If you go back right before dark I am sure you will see even more, aren't they more active in the dawn and dusk?
Did you hear about the man who stabbed a gator in the eye , when it attacked his neighbors dog? http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/South/08/27/gator.attack.ap/
good grief !!!! I feel sorry for the gator :p torn I guess cause I feel for the dog to .....
Eek! That's a good reason to keep one's dog on a leash, if you ask me!!!
