i LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your gallery wall!! gorgeous memories and how nice that you can see them every day!! i have 2, i'm not sure if i have ever shared them, i think i have!!


Sallie - Sorry for the delay in commenting - I had to make an emergency visit to Ohio to visit my brother in the hospital.

If I didn't know better, I would think that the ground was hot and the turtle did not want to touch the ground! That gallery wall is fabulous! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

Your photo gallery is wonderful! Glad you got your shot of the Kingfisher. I was delighted to get a great capture of one on my recent trip to the UK.


Hello Sallie,
I love your photo gallery wall, all the birds are wonderful.
A great collection of Florida birds. I am glad the turtle made it safely across the road. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend!

Kingfishers are very shy indeed. The wall with all your photos look beautiful!

I'm sure you're glad to be back in Florida for the winter. Your photo wall looks wonderful, what a great gift :)

Thanks for sharing your link at My Corner of the World this week!


I love your photo wall. I am thinking about doing something similar for behind my desk so that I don't have such a sorry backdrop during zoom calls.

Wow. That's a beautiful photo gallery! An inspiration.


Turtles are one of my favorites, I haven't seen one in years. Love your photo wall, it's a beauty. Enjoy the week, Sallie.

I love your gallery wall, Sallie.

Awesome sightings of the Kingfisher and turtle.

It's lovely to see your photos arranged like that.

I've never been able to capture a kingfisher on film, ours are different from yours, though I think one of yours got blown across the ocean to the Uk in the last week or so.

The turtle has a noble air.

Amy Franks

Nice to see a bird that we have here but it's not often we see the Kingfishers.


I've never been able to photo a kingfisher but I am thrilled if I see one in the wild, which is not very often. Your photo wall is terrific.


Love the photo wall! Good for the "kids".


Glad to hear you're back in FL enjoying warmth. I love your "bird wall"! That's a wonderful gift. Kudos to Bill for hanging them all! Great memories.

Mary Jo Burns

re: Geoff and Lisa. Those kids are keepers.


There are wonderful captures inclusive this special bird. I given up to photograph birds, I call my husband by the way.

Thank you for sharing.

Oh WOW! I love your gallery wall of beautiful photos! It really is a great idea and a wonderful way to enjoy them. AND for others to see and enjoy them too! I know it's a lot of work but it turned out so great!

Happy mosiac Monday



Hello, Sallie

Great sightings of the Kingfisher and turtle. Your wall of pictures looks wonderful, so many beautiful birds. The Burrowing Owl is one of my favorites. Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

Linda P

A kingfisher is a beautiful bird. The gallery of bird photos must be a joy for both of you to look at. I hope you have the opportunity to photograph more birds in the future.

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie

A wonderful photo gallery! You have some great shots there! I like that you stopped for the turtle.


Love your photo wall.

Lorrie Orr

How great to have your photos hanging on the wall. The gallery display looks great, and I know from experience that it's quite a feat of measuring!


When I taught school I had a red-eared turtle for a class pet. That was before they were considered to be dangerous for salmonella transmission. After I moved out of the classroom and into administrative positions my turtle went to live at my parent's house with his own fenced yard and small pond. By then he was about five inches across. When they moved we found him a home at a turtle preserve. - Margy


HI Sallie, I love your wall what a great gift...Im sure you are going to see lots of good birds this winter also....enjoy the week.


I love turtles and often stop for them.
