A Busy Day at the Feeder

the day before our first big snowfall

Birds and squirrels must know when they need to stock up on their food intake. It was a crazy day at the bird feeder and between the birds and the tree rats (my husband’s name for squirrels) the feeder and seeds around the feeder quickly disappeared.

Tuesday Textures on Wednesday

….yesterday’s rain washed out all plans to get out and photograph textures

Today the sun came out and even though the ground was still pretty soggy and muddy in places I was very motivated to go for a walk with my telephoto lens and my iPhone.
