Please read notice...

Notice:
I wanted to give notice that I will be going to full moderation of comments.  That means your comments won't show up till I have time to moderate them.  I have been getting some very nasty comments from Anonymous.  Funny thing they don't really bother me...I just hate for people that come here to see such hate in the comments.  I don't like giving someone like that a platform.

***************
Now to the photo for today....

Don't you just love him!  I couldn't believe that this Northern Bobwhite was on top of this big round bail of hay.

As you know, Rose, I have had to do the same with Comments as I don't want to expose others to that type of nastiness.
That bird certainly has you in his sights. Nature is so beautiful :)

it looks beautiful and waits for someone as if it prepared a nest for a young beautiful picture.

Ginny Hartzler said...

So cute! What a little bird for such a huge nest. Wonderful capture! So sorry you have to go to moderation, I can't understand how ANYONE could dislike you enough to do this. There are always those who want to spoil a good thing.

I love your photos, they always cheer me up.

Sorry about the nasty comments, and I think you are right in barring them.

Bill said...

What a great picture! I can't imagine why someone would post hateful things. Spam I understand, and I block those who do it. But hate? Bad craziness.

When the straw that is baled up is a little damp it gets some form of mould in the bale which causes them to give off heat. Our pheasants can often be seen on top of the bales, especially on a chilly autumn morning. I would guess that Bobwhites have also learned the trick. I had a couple of contributions, probably from the same Anonymous, which I promptly deleted and he/she now seems to have moved on.

Ann said...

What an awesome photo. Looks like he's posing for you.
I saw the annonymous comment and one similar on another blog. A long time ago I stopped allowing annonymous comments because of something similar.

He is at the right place to get the best view of whats going on around him.

Love the shot.

Yes, noted that Anon comment the other day. Good move in the short term. But are you aware that you can select to have only Google commenters also? That stops Anon entering from anywhere. Also, in your comments section on the dashboard, you can select to spam such comments. Doing this consistently alerts the Google security algorithm and it really helps to cut them down. It is more effective than just deleting them. Forgive, if you already know this! YAM xx

I never knew there were " morons" here ! Well..it takes all sorts to make this world!

Sandra said...

I have not seen or heard a bobwhite in many years, used to hear them in Savannah a lot.. but not in FL. I have not seen your nasty comments.

don said...

Ruthie said...

happyone said...

What a great capture.
He looks right at home there.
I've gotten some of those nasty comments too!!

Steven said...

A real beauty with eye-catching plumage! Great capture!

Kodak said...

Great shot. I have not seen a Bobwhite in a long time. I always loved to hear their call.

I have not seen the comments you were getting, as I do not always read all comments, but it's sad that someone has to do that. They must be a coward and a sad person.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Lovely picture. I have gone to full moderation of comments as well, for that very same reason.

Steve in Japan said...

A sweet bird and lovely warm light. A superb capture.

harry said...

indeed... it was nice to relieve you of the need to get down on your knees. it also works well to feature him against the sky

Carol- Beads and Birds said...

Right Place/Right Time to catch that photo!! I have moderated comments for almost the entire time I have blogged. Lots of Bots out there and of course people that just want to be nasty.

Stay well
xx, Carol
