RED HEAD WOODPECKER

Photography

Last year I posted what had happen to this tree.  While sitting on my porch I was able to get this picture of both of them. They have only been back a few more times.  I think maybe they have a nest close by. I don’t know. The woods are full of trees for them.  I think the woodpecker is a beautiful bird.   That is a lot of work on that tree to get some food.

From one day to the next afternoon, our geese and the eggs were gone. We were shocked and clueless.  There was no sign of broken eggs, feathers or anything.  They were just gone.  It has been hard for me to post this. But yes, I had become attached.

Bluebirds Feeding Babies

I am not a camera professional and my pictures are not always clear and crisp. The settings I leave to the camera. Regardless, I really had fun this morning taking pictures of these bluebirds.  I noticed that the male would fly off with the female and come back with her at the same time.  He would then sit on the outside as she entered the house.  I’m sure she was feeding the little baby bluebirds.

A Perfect Place For A Family

I was so excited when I saw these two Canadian geese on this lake.

At my age, I still get excited and thrilled to watch wildlife go through the process of the incubation period, watching the eggs hatch and the goslings (in this case) emerge.

Praise, Thoughts Today

My photography mishap, that I turned into a game received the most views.  I am sharing it again. The Red Fox  Squirrel.  Thank you for all your support, likes and comments these past few months. I have enjoyed reading your post and seeing your beautiful photography. You all are so kind to accept me into this world of technology, I know so little about.

CAN YOU FIND HIM

 

THE LOVELY FOX SQUIRELL

Photography

FOX SQUIRELLI enjoy watching these every year scurrying around finding nuts and acorns, eating them and burying them for later consumption. I have tried on many occasions to get a close-up picture. Today is the first time I feel that I have one slightly close of  being worthy to be posted. My photography is so limited but I do enjoy it.

We have weather changes approaching and many days of rain in the forecast so the squirrel we call our pet friend, is busy today preparing!

HUMMINGBIRDS SHARING AND IN FLIGHT

HUMMERS HUMMINGBIRDS SHARING  

(Sharing a poem I wrote about the Hummingbird with their pictures)

THE Hummingbird

Hummingbirds flying back and forth.
Rushing they are to their source of strength.
Some share and some do not.
They want it all for themselves.
Peaceful it is watching them.
And hearing them humming in the air.
Many thoughts I have as I watch.
How we rush to our source of strength.
And sharing with others.
The blessings given to us.
Or standing on guard.
Protecting what we have.
Lessons, many there are to learn
Sitting and watching the Hummingbird.
