FSO–the Letter N

Couldn’t decide whether to be naughty or nice.  And I’m too old to be bothered either way.

I had to go seriously looking for something for this topic.  Every second thing that took my eye was an M.
On Monday when out for a walk, Flint came right up to the fence and presented a nose opportunity:

But before I could take a back up shot he moved and what did I get…a nostril.  (Oh please!)

Thanks to the sharp eyes of my walking companion, next came a nest:

Unfortunately, the rest of the week was not so productive.  I had to resort to a commonplace sight along the road I travel daily, a narrow bridge, and a pretty ordinary one at that:

What else starts with the letter N?  A community noticeboard:

Nieces.  Well, a niece and a great-niece, one generation as lovely as the next.  And I admit I dug into my archives to retrieve this shot:
niece and great niece

And while I was there I remembered this shot from last summer.  This is Ngunguru.  No, I haven't been drinking.  Try pronouncing that one!

I wonder what N things the rest of the team came up with?  I’m just going to hop over here to check them out.


  1. Aaaaah! I adore that soft horsey nose, makes me almost reach out and stroke the screen. Wow. And the nest, too; I wonder who that belonged to?

  2. Your niece and grand niece is so pretty! Where is Ngunguru?

  3. Hello Pauline,

    The nest photo is very interesting, it makes you think what happened there.
    Have a fantastic weekend.

  4. the neice shot is WONDERFUL! I hope you and the girl's mothers have that one framed. I love it.
    the horse nose/nostril are also great shot (in my himble opinion!)

    word Verif.... Monsc - even it doesn't know any N words.

  5. All wonderful N's but, of course, my favorite is the horse's nostril... a beautiful "N" word.

  6. A nose with a neigh?! Great bunch of photos, Pauline!!

  7. Great post Pauline. I hope you saw my post about Zenyatta, you will appreciate her beauty. I too found Ns hard to find. Love the niece one, didn't have any of those. Thanks for dropping by.

  8. Great post! That was aver narroww bridge. Cute niece!

  9. The two girls are very beautiful, and did the niece feel strange to be an aunt at this age?

  10. You are really good at photography! All your picture are really magnificent.
    The horse is really great.The nieces are gorgeous and that egg shell in the empty nest is very poignant.

    Nuts in May

  11. Thanks for the comments, everyone.
    I wondered about the nest, too, Kerry. It was on the ground under a tree. My grand-daughter decided it belonged to a little yellow eye because that is the smallest bird we see around here (I don't know its proper name!)
    Jama, Ngunguru is about 30 minutes from Whangarei on the east coast.
    I love that photo of the different generations of nieces, too, Ginger.
    Ann, the girls aren't aunt and niece, they are second cousins. Although I made my youngest sister an aunt when she was 6 days old (I am the oldest of twelve children).
    QMM, I enjoyed looking up and reading about Zenyatta. Thanks.
    Thanks for visiting, Maggie May.

  12. all wonderful choices Pauline. love the nest shot!! awesome!
