Today's photos

Today's prompts for the Shelter and Share and April Photo Challenge are "Caturday" and "Foal." 

Caturday was easy. I have a lot of cats.
I also have a lot of foals, but somehow this prompt seemed a lot more challenging. I want to make each and every one of my challenge photos memorable. A standard picture of a cute baby wasn't going to cut it. For a while, I was completely stumped.

Then I decided to attack the problem from another angle. "Which foal should I use?" I asked myself. The answer to that, at least, was obvious. This is Lauren Hoeffer's challenge, so clearly this was a job for Wren. I put her on the photo table, and thought, "What could she be looking at?"

And just like that, the whole thing came together.
Two years ago, I made these tiny butterflies with paper and thread.
I attached them to fishing line with sticky wax and later removed the fishing line with Photoshop.
Here's the official Challenge picture.
Tomorrow's prompts are "Hobby Item You Made" and "Decorator." One of them is already done. The other is still in the "I have no idea what I'm going to do" stage. Here's hoping that ends as well as "Foal" did!


  1. Shelter and Share and April Photo Challenge sounds to me like Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey: two great shows that show great together. I love your Foal.

  2. I love your cats they would look in my barn.
