Thank you. The lighthearted ones are fun for me too. Definitely Vaudeville at the dam! Those long concrete chutes make great stages when the water is up like this.

(The moody ones are bread and butter.)

Glad they got a smile outa ya Chuck! Yes, the top hats and canes would really ice the cake.

The birds can be hilarious. The in-house name of that first shot is The Biscuit Dance. Right before I shot it, I had an early morning outing to the park with the grandsons. When I delivered a bag of hot McDonald's biscuits, the youngest and oldest broke out in a spontaneous dance of celebration that they called their Biscuit Dance. The birds and the boys have a lot in common.

DAMN YOU! All I can hear now are songs from "A Chorus Line"

One singular sensation, every little step she takes
One thrilling combination, every move that she makes
One smile and suddenly nobody else will do
You know you'll never be lonely with you-know-who

:clap:

:D

Let's change that tune, the first is definitely a tap dance but the second reminds me of Walk Like an Egyptian
