ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " Q "



Today we are at one of the more difficult word letters of the
alphabet.
It's the letter " Q ".
The first word that came to my mind was
QUIETUDE.
I had no QUALMS about showing this photo for the word.



This Summer we discovered some QUAIL eggs out in the field.
I hope they survived.
We didn't see any birds around.



QUAKING Aspen leaves are a sure sign of Fall.
The leaves QUIVERED in the slight breeze at Sorenson's Resort.



On our Kenya Safari a few years ago we saw vast herds of
Cape Buffalo.
They are QUITE unpredictable.
Our driver had to be prepared to make a QUICK exit
if these beasts decided to charge.
We needed to be QUIET and not disturb them.
We didn't QUESTION that at all.

Enlarging the photos will give more detail.

I love the first photo.. and that face of the buffalo is amazing. And so is your ability to create these letter posts. Always fun.

i would be quivering with delight to see one of those cape buffalo and i also would quiver with delight if I could walk up those steps in all that quiet beauty. this morning it was so quiet at sunrise i could hear the little devil squirrels chewing on the pine cones for the nuts in them.

I LOVE quaking Aspen leaves. We used to have a lot of quail around here. I remember seeing a momma quail leading her brood behind her along the fence when we first moved here, forty years ago.
