WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge..Two Subjects.

This week’s weekly photo challenge is to take a photo with two subjects.

I couldn’t resist as someone stuck their big fat head in the way, giving me two subjects.

Duckzilla and the dancing chickadee…

Once upon a time, in a land far away (well not too far away, I mean it was actually quite close) there lived a terrible monster.

Grrr! it said! “I will stomp on EVERYTHING!” it said.

“Everything in the water” it clarified for all who were listening.

“I am Duckzilla!” it yelled for further effect.


Then it tripped.

And it was so mortified, it came out of the water, shook itself off and behaved itself for the rest of it’s life.



Meanwhile, back on the ranch, a chickadee was doing the Hop.

“Let’s go to the Hop..oh baby”


A swan was having a serious chat with some fish.

Swans do like to carp.


As a heron eavesdropped for any good tidbits of gossip.

He was very koi about it.


A real monster stared cross-eyed at the tree fuzz on his nose and wished he didn’t have hayfever.


While a little dog begged for a treat.


So he was given one and all was well.


And everyone was happy.

.The End.

Carp(e) diem

Fish fish fish!!

I wish wish wish

for a dish dish dish

and some tartar sauce…

Beg your pardon…I didn’t know you were listening.

There’s Henry and Fred and George and Tyrone and Mary and…

No wonder this little bird went over to the wallaby enclosure for a bath.

The wallaby didn’t care, he was rolling in the leaves.

I hope he’s careful, there’s something lurking in the bushes..


Say what!?!

Run away! Run away!
