    • Thank you very much for your nomination, kind sir 🙂 I am sincerely flattered.
      Unfortunately I don’t participate in the awards process, and cringe at the thought of having to – gasp – *write* something, but hope you know I appreciate it! It’s the greatest award if folks enjoy some of my photos, so I do hope you’ll continue to stop by when time permits. I plan to post more shots of the white tiger cubs soon 😀 😀

      Warmly,
      Takami

      • Your response was more than enough participation my friend. Like you, I don’t usually get involved in these processes, so I can truly understand where you are coming from. I’m just glad you know I consider you among my favorite sites, and if you do, then that is more than enough satisfaction for me. I’ll be watching for the pictures of the cubs. Take care.

    • Thank you so much! There is a children’s petting zoo area, where children (and adults) can interact or see farm animals from a close distance. Chicks are very popular, because they are so soft and yellow. As you say, they look fragile and cute at the same time, so I wonder how stressful it must be for them – being handled by screaming kids… Therefore, I decided to keep my distance and photograph them. And the chick in this shot really stood out with her personality. Her expression reminded me of an army drill sargent (the ones in old army films) who barks out orders 😀

      • She certainly look like she was asserting her control. 🙂 I grew up in the midwest so I got to pet, pick up and hold baby chickens and ducks all the time on the local farms that sold us fresh eggs. We used to walk 2 miles to the “egg lady” who was a good friend to our family. We loved to go there and play with the babies and there were always babies on a chicken farm.

        • Oh, what lovely memories! I also grew up in a rural neighborhood and like you, I remember going to an ‘egg lady’ for fresh eggs. I loved following the chickens & ducks around, hoping to develop a special bond and make friends with them. Naturally, the preferred the company of their Mum/each other, and didn’t really pay me much attention 😀 Still, I could dream… 😀 The ‘shock’ came for me a little later…being a curious child, I asked my mother what happened to the chicks when they ‘grew up’ … and I was heartbroken and horrified when I learned of their fate. Growing up really stinks! 😉

          • We just celebrated Easter a month ago. When I was a kid there was a practice of selling dyed baby chicks and bunnies to kids as pets. It was a cruel thing to do as the chicks grew quickly and were no fun to handle. Many animals were loved to death. I believe that practice has fallen out of favor now.

    • Thank you ❤ I like to give attention to the 'smaller' animals as well as the larger ones. I'm happy you liked the headline/banner photo. My original post with the cubs had a positive response, so I thought it might be nice to feature them on top of the page 😀

  1. Awwwww….ha…ha! This little guy is adorable! Great expressive capture. I love these little yellow spring chicks. Wonderful capture, Takami! Thank you for bringing a smile to my face this morning. It’s a wonderful way to start my day! Wishing you and your husband a very happy day and upcoming weekend! :)))

    • Thank you Jeannie! Your posts always brighten my day, so it’s a real pleasure if I can try and do the same 🙂 Yellow is such a happy and ‘Spring-y’ colour, and who doesn’t like chicks? So it was really a lovely & fun experience. Hope your week is coming along well ❤

    • Thank you Indah! It makes me happy if this photo could make you smile 🙂 Yes, I believe he was feeling hungry, and therefore ‘chirping’ for something to eat. His expression reminded me of a strict drill Sargent in the army 😀 😀
