Northern Parula Warbler by Gizmomma


One thing we have learned editing this blog for the past few months is how much freaking undiscovered talent lurks
among the ranks of our Black Sheep! It has been quite amazing to receive a photograph from someone who adds,
"I don't know if this is any good or not..."

Well, we don't want to hear that phrase EVER AGAIN!

You a Black Sheep MOD, you haz Talent, it hath been decreed!

So, here's photograph of a Northern Parula Warbler taken by our very own beloved Gizmomma that we can see hanging framed in a fine art gallery anywhere in the world, and for sale at a very high price! Just languish in the saturation of color, the composition, the drops of water glittering like stars in a dark night sky punctuated by bright yellows, oranges, and greens! And I'm not even talking about the warbler!


We encourage your comments and compliments to Giz right here because she needs to GET IT ON!YES: A NEW ART CAREER AS A WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER because - let's face it, Linda - ain't a one of us gettin' any younger around heah!

YOU ARE A ROCK STAR. Now git y'self published and into some local galleries and art shows, else betta get eyes in the back o'ya head cuz the Black Sheep Nation is right behind ya!

Here's to Talent, Generosity of Sharing, Sensitivity to Nature in all its myriad forms, and the skill with which we capture and share that love of wild places and wildlife with others. Giz, you have inspired at least two other photographers to buy good cameras. It's a start. Now, you two photographers who bought good cameras, send us what YOU got!

Yes, that's a DARE!
YumYum ain't 'fraid of YOU!!! LOL!

  1. That photograph is an unbelievable work of art! I would hang that in a prominent place in my home. Giz/Linda- you have such an eye- please cultivate it!

  2. Gizmomma, it's absolutely gorgeous! You know what I've been trying to convince you to do, now get on it!!!

  3. Giz, you should sell that to a home decorator!

  4. All I can say is wow, wow, wow!

    Well done!

  5. Absolutely stunning. Giz, you need to sell these photos. They are unbelievable.

  6. Would someone talk to Giz about how awesome her art is? She still don't believe a guinea pig opinion and someMODy gotta get her to recognize genius, even if it's her own! Please, do something!

  7. My dearest friends,
    Thank you so much for your so very kind words. I truly appreciate them. I can't tell you how good you have all made me feel! Thank you. And, MsA, I swear I am working on it! I'm just a slow starter! :)
    Love, Linda/Gizmomma
