“Listen to me, everybody! I’m your new leader! I’m gonna save your lives! I’m gonna tell you what to do!” ~ Chicken Little (1943)
Do you remember the story of Chicken Little or Henny-Penny, who caused absolute hysteria in the farmyard, when after an acorn fell on her head, she spread the word that the sky was falling? Well, she was absolutely right. 🙂
OMG ! We used to call our oldest sister chicken Little as she always thought the worse was going to happen.
I’ve seen about a zillion cloud reflections in water, but this is the most realistic one I ever saw! I had to look twice. I was thinking, how did she do this before I realized that the clouds were reflections. This is a great shot!
Thanks so much, George. I thought it was quite an unusual photo. 🙂
Such a beautiful capture. Good eye!
Thanks so much, John. 🙂
You’ve caught two of my favorite things- clouds and reflections. The only thing missing is waves, but of course that might not work too well on the reflections! 😉
Thanks, Gunta. No waves here in the wetlands. 🙂
Thanks, Imelda. 🙂
Love it! Wonderful pairing, photography plus story!
Thanks, Babsje. Just a bit of fun. 🙂
She was right! It Happened!
Thanks, Phil. 🙂
That is a GORGEOUS shot! BTW, I used to have a bumper sticker (many years ago!) that read “Chicken Little was right!”
Thanks so much, Madelaine. I’ve never seen a bumper sticker like that. How funny! 😀
Great reflection AD, beautiful !
Thanks so much.. 🙂
Thanks so much. 🙂
That is one beautiful capture …. and …. a cute little story to go with it.
I wonder if one was swimming you could touch the clouds. ~~~~~ : – )
Thanks so much, Izzy. I think if one went swimming there, one could get eaten by alligators. 😯
hahaha … Florida – I gather???!!!!
You guessed right. 🙂
What a great shot Sylvia. I wonder if that is what Simba thinks when it’s thunder and lighting. 😆
Thanks for sharing hon. *big hugs*
Thanks, Sonel. I’m sure that’s exactly what Simba thinks. Hugs to you. xx
non conoscevo questa deliziosa storiella!….ma ho visto come tutto il cielo dalla testa del pulcino era caduto nell’acqua, ha ha
I did not know this delicious story! …. but I saw how all the sky from Chick’s head had fallen into the water, ha ha
Thanks so much. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the story and the photo.
You and the chickens are very clever 🙂
Me and the chickens, Gilly? Sounds like we’re in cahoots. 😀
Great photo`s. Looks like the sky fell into the lake. 🙂 not on his head.
Thanks, Leo. Glad you enjoyed the pic. I could have walked on those clouds, but wasn’t going to take a chance, as there were probably alligators lurking underneath them. 🙂
You could turn that picture upside down and none would be the wiser! Beautiful!
Hehehe. Thanks, Elisa. 🙂
I always thought that Chicken Little had the right of it! And now, here is the proof! 🙂
Thanks, Rebecca. Glad you agree with me. 🙂
Eeeek – Poor chicken little.
Nice photo. Love the reflection of the clouds/sky in the water!
Thanks, RoSy. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
That is a very nice reflection of the sky. Looks more clearer down than up 🙂
Thanks, YC. 🙂
Awesome! Not even a minnow tickling the surface to distort the mirror.
Thanks so much. Absolutely calm, Col. 🙂
I see what you did there. And I like it. 🙂
A great introduction to a great photo.
Thanks so much, Lance. 🙂
I feel like you’ve turned my world upside down 😉
Yes, it was very weird being there too. 🙂
Dude this is an awesome picture. How clear is that lake! Awesome double sky.
Thanks, TG. It is quite amazing. I agree. 🙂
I have my net ready 🙂
Thanks for the smile and the gorgeous shot, Ad.
Hahaha. Thanks, Jo. Glad you liked it. 🙂
Glad you liked it. 🙂
Great title for this stunning photo!
Thanks, Cee. 🙂
The clouds/water make for a beautiful shot. Oh the memories of Henny-Penny, 🙂
Thanks so much, Janna. That story will always stick in my memory. I read it so many time. 🙂
I am laughing out loud. Clever pairing. The quote could have come from any of our elected leaders. 🙂 I take it the photo is beautiful south Florida.
Thanks, Lynne. You made me smile too with your comment about politicians.:) The photo was taken at Green Cay Nature Centre here in West Palm.
Ha what really perfect match AD !
I like the way your mind works 😉
Thanks, Poppy. Yes, it does work occasionally. 🙂
Love the reflection in your photo … And my reflection is, that we need just that – awareness of reflection – around and about our selves to be able to grow as humans … // Maria 🙂
Thanks, Maria. You’re so right. 🙂
Love this reflection and the Chicken Little story goes perfectly with your photo! 🙂
Thanks, LuAnn. 🙂
You are so funny…and talented.
I love your comment, Gemma. 😀
Well I guess so 😀
Fabulous picture ad, and it seems Henny-Penny was quite right!
Thanks, Hopestar. It does indeed. 🙂
Photo is beautiful!With love maxima
Thanks so much, Stefan. 🙂
Ducky Lucky here !! I know it off by heart, as my youngest daughter wanted me to read it every night !!!!!! 😀
Hey, Ducky Lucky….. you and me both. 🙂
Photo is stunningly beautiful
Thanks so much, Patrecia. 🙂
Why…..has your sky fallen in?
I remember that story well , having read it to the children when they were small
No, my sky is still where it should be. 🙂 I also read this book to my children, countless times. They never seemed to tire of it.
Stunning cloud reflections…a lovely day and a lovely photograph of it.
Thanks, Michelle. It was too good to miss. 🙂
