Playing Around with the Blog

So, now I have added some new pages, listed on the left column. I can squeeze so much information into this blog, do I really need a paid website?

A World of Artists

Through Facebook, I have been in contact with many wonderfully talented artists. The world is full of them! Some of the botanic art is achingly beautiful. It brings joy, and that is good.

On another note, I have been trying to get the slideshow to show all my art in the Photobucket album, but it refuses to do that, and seems to run out of energy on the last page. At that point, the random slideshow begins again. It's not really random, though. The difference is that the shuffled order repeats exactly the same after one loop. Do I need to mess with this or just give up and move on to some other issue? I think I have already answered that question.

Somehow I figured out, with a little help from other blogspot users, how to show a slideshow of my bird images on this site. I can't figure out, though, how to show other albums, such as botanical art and portraits in one continuous loop. But since the name of the blog is A Bird's Eye View, I'll just have to settle for the birds.

Another Downy?

Yes! Just finished, a downy, again. I think the pose is so typical of a downy. It has a kind of tension in its posture. It's not a "relaxed" species. The branch was one of many pieces of oak tree that have been shed on my lawn this winter.
