Would have liked it if Stanley had bothered to turn a bit more towards the camera, but you never can get him to listen when it's breakfast time. Really, where's Mo when you need him? I was looking forward to my oatmeal until Rosemary hopped through it.

Seriously, she didn't even bother eating it then. You think I was going to eat it after that?

Thanks for all the comments -- this is not a time of the morning during which I'm particularly proud to be seen. Hopefully there won't be another self portrait for a very long, long time.

But I should be ok: After all, look how long it was between grain challenges!

I believe we look both alike in the morning Wendy, except the critters that surround me are more feline :-) Very funny and creative! Congratulations on the nice finish.

I'm actually surprised this didn't ribbon. It's wonderfully human :-)

It's a zoo around our house in the morning, too. Excellent concept and so very well executed. You are a marvel, Wendy.

Looks like a Wendy dream, lol; counting squirrels and birds instead of sheep. Lighting looks good.

I love how you're creative and skilled enough to think of putting the squirrels' reflections on the table. Now about getting that bluebird out of your hair....

LOL, I'm not sure if there are just too many critters in this image. Sometimes less is more. I would of just kept the two drinking from the cup and maybe the one on your head. Having said that it's way better than what I could come up with and that is exactly NIL. I'm giving you a 7, if there were less critters maybe an 8 or 9 ;)

Very nice Lighting Wendy-you are the bird and squirrel whisperer for sure.

Not your moment of the day? :) Mine neither although I have to live it 5 days a week.
A part from some small details I find this a very good pp job. Congrats Wendy, this will end up high for sure.

I know what you're thinking: "I just don't have enough ribbons!" ;-) This is blue gold. :)
