Biting at the Bit


(This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of this post, but does look pretty and it is reminiscent of a photo that could be seen in a Country Life magazine article!)

I am biting at the bit because I saw the darn tootiness, cute photo in an old Country Life magazine, that I picked up in a thrift store...and can not scan and share since I forgot my darn portable scanner at work.

Let's just say this.  The cover of this Country Life magazine (January 12, 2011) is titled "Love a duck - Extraordinary animal friendships"  The cover is wonderful enough.  It shows a large cross eyed dog (Rottweiler?) sitting next to a chair occupied by a quacking duck. 

You think that is unusual?  Just wait till you see the photo inside.

Again the British Magazine press has enamored me.  Yes, this is a large format weekly magazine that has a feature page showing a photo of a prominent young lady of British society, and yes, it has page after page of stately manors for sale for around 1 million and a half pounds and more....
but it also has great articles on artists, farming concerns, history and dogs and ducks and badgers and other animals   All around a fun and interesting read.

And the photography in general is fantastic.

So you will just have to wait till Friday morning to see the photo that caught my eye.
