Sunny Days

 

The weather here has been quite nice for the past day or so all though chilly at least the sun has been out .  This morning it is sunny and the air is colder but it is soo refreshing !

Yesterday was soo nice I spent the afternoon taking photos of Miggs , critters and birds .  I have been lurking around with camera in hand trying to get the birds used to me and this black thing that shines every once in a while as I get closer and closer to them . The birds are used to my voice and seem to stay put when I talk to them .  I can get close to the Downy woodpecker and the Red Breasted Nut hatch but the White breasted nuthatch is very skittish still I figure I may get so close one day that I will be able to use my 60mm macro lens instead of my 55-300 mm  as it stands I can get at least  2 feet from them now . I love watching  and talking  to the birds !

White Breasted Nuthatch decided to pose for me upside down on the tree trunk . Did you know the Nuthatch are the only birds that can travel head first down a tree ?  Nature is wonderful isn’t it ?

Mr Squirrel up in our big tree looking down on me and Miggs after she just finished chasing him !

The yard was busy yesterday as I assume it will be again today as the sun is shining and the temps are to rise to  6 °C or 42ยบF not bad at all !

                                          Until next time hope you all have great day !
