The other day I was looking for Frank, normally when I call his name he comes straight to me. But he was nowhere to be seen, then after my second round I discovered him sitting in the garden of the church. Only he didn't react, he pretended not to know me. He was in fact socializing with a female cat.

Apparently he had other priorities at the time.

It is not a best photo, but this is Frank and I think his girlfriend.

Ok, we need to smile. It is good for our wrinkles? Mines, anyway. ja ja

OMG @loreta ! You don't know how close to the truth this can be.

I once had a dog, Molly, who was very bright and honestly, she came back to me as another dog, Archie...whom I'd like to speak of later....but back to Molly. She and I had recently moved and found a new vet. We brought home a doogie welcome kit from the vet, and included was a box of biscuits.

I came home from work one day and heard the tv in my bedroom playing. I went to check on this, since I knew I didn't leave it on, nor was it on in the morning, before I left for work.

So I go in my room, and there's Molly, laying down on my bed, head up watching tv. In front of her forepaws was the tv remote, which I kept on the nightstand, and the new box of cookies, which I hadn't opened and were in the kitchen on the counter when I left. A corner of the biscuit box was chewed open and 3 or 4 dog cookies were in a pile in front of her! She gave me a passing look and returned to watching the tv....🤣

A Friesian horse mother who gives birth to a stillborn foal and of a foal (not a Friesian one) who has just been born and whose mother died just after giving birth to him.


Friesian horses are all black, standing tall at 15-17 hands. They have muscular bodies and elegant gaits that make them seem extremely dignified. Though the breed nearly went extinct on several occasions, they’re growing in popularity today, which is helping the breed to grow in numbers as well.

Horses are amazing. In front of them I always feel a lot of wonder and respect, like to be in front of a very not just wild beast but very ancient, from the past of humanity. Thanks for the video.

Sorry to say, but that image is a miniature reproduction of a bird, taken from someone's Facebook page.

But this is the bird they were referring to...

Mellisuga helenae / Bee Hummingbird​

Smallest bird in the world
Also known as Zunzuncito or Helena hummingbird

Native to Cuba (Classified as 'near threatened')

Move their wings 80 times a SECOND!!!
Up to 200 times a second when courting a female.

Phenomenal + mind blowing...

Next time I think I am exhausted, I will think of these exquisite little miracles...
how divine they are 🥰

We, humans, are really ugly compared to birds. We aren't even able to fly. These pictures are marvelous, really. Nature is a miracle of beauty.
