isn't he just gorgeous?
I love his little (but strong!) feet and the black and white pattern on his coat.

A lovely critter!

Marie said...

Just wonderful!

Carletta, my husband is from Chesapeake. He actually was born in Norfolk General because Chesapeake was Norfolk Co. then. He graduated from the first grad class of Indian River HS in 1969. We have lived in Chesapeake both when we first married and later when our daughter was in middle school, Jr. High and early HS. It has changed so much over the years but it was "home base" for us for a long time. I can't believe you were there as well!

Beauty!

Liz said...

WOW! Gorgeous bird. I missed so many bloggers posts in March & April... sorry I haven't visited for a while (we had a very close friends son die - he was like a son to me. I didn't blog much.)
