OK< TM, this was enough to drag me out of lurkdom to ask - did those birds just fall down dead in front of Emma Sage (she is such a miracle, I would not be surprised to hear that the answer is yes!). All I can say is - wow - talk about "life skills"! I think Emma Sage will be quite well prepared for just about ANYTHING! And, btw, did you with very little fan fare aquire a new camera? I have been enjoying your recent postings very much (those ballet pictures spoke volumes).

Fresh birds - yummy indeed. As a city slicker I prefer mine already plucked but those photoes were beautiful.

I must say that Emma Sage is miost likely the cutest and best dressed hunter in the world :-)
love the pics.

Thanks all!

Debbie, no, no new camera for me, I'm just borrowing Rick's from work.....I only get it from time to time [inbetween trips]. I'm back to saving my pennies again so I can get my dream camera someday soon!

As for my 'miracle' birds.....lol! I wouldn't doubt Miss ES abilities to make that happen....but we have a local hunt club that had a pheasant shoot on Saturday.....so I was gifted 5 birds to enjoy.

And her 'life skills'....yes, this child is learning how to do everything herself [Maria Montessori would be proud!]

Shelly~ Thank you....There is something magical in plucking and dressing your own birds....although it is much quicker to get them at the store! LOL!!! This is more of a novelty, than an everyday occurance [OK, like 2x a year thing!]

Christina & Prince Vince~ Don't you love her Budda belly in the sweater! She is funny, somedays it is full, others she looks like a skinny little thing!

Thanks for sharing in my joy....this child just melts my heart.

Wow! Emma's braver than me! I wouldn't have the guts to pick up a bird :) I'm a wimp! But I love the expression on her face!

OH MY GOODNESS!! I seriously thought you were joking! You two chickies are quite brave!! I cannot believe she actually picked that bird up....GASP!!!

I absolutley love the pictures. The red coat is adorable. As for the dead birds well all I have to say is if i ever got stranded on a deserted island inhabited with chickens I surley would need you and Emma sage around because I may starve without you. Hahaaaaaaa How hypocritical I am I will eat and enjoy only Dead animals and birds others kill.

BTW I have missed you and am back online and blogging :)
