In temps that is . Oh I am not complaining , just happy it is a lot cooler . The past day or so the mornings have been dewy and down to 8C or 46 F that is chilly compared to what had been . I love the fresh cool air the smell of the land in it and the feel as I breath it in deep . The morning sunrises have been lovely yet different every time depending on the temps and the atmosphere .
Miggs and I have been loving this cooler weather for our walks means we can go the distance and not be hot , tired though by the time we get back as we walk for an hour or so .
Snoozing in the morning sun when we get back from our walks .
Then Miggs gets her energy back and is in the mood to chase squirrels !
This is her WHAT, WHO, WHERE !!! look or DID I MISS IT MUM ??? lol silly dog !
I SEE HIM MUM HE IS ABOVE ME IN THE TREE , WOOF !!!
I WILL JUST LAY HERE AND STAY ON GUARD look she has !
Whilst Miggs was on guard I was watching this little fellow on the coneflowers !
I can see you little Goldfinch !!!! as he hides behind it taking a bit here and there !
Good stuff eh ? as he looks at me munching !
I watched him for quite some time and took lots of photos but then he was done for now flew up onto the garden pergola wiped his beak off gave himself a shake, looked at me one more time and off he went !
Then clouds rolled in and we had some much needed rain this afternoon and it has been raining on and off since ! I love photographing rain , puddles and rain drops !
The rain sounded so nice and was soo fresh smelling as it gently came down !
Then after it stopped for a bit I went and looked for rain drops !
Miggs enjoyed drinking the rain puddles , she loves rain water !
Just before Papa came home from work and we were on our way in for the day I saw wayyy up in this 60 foot tree across the field a fairly big bird sitting up top and was wondering what type of bird it was as I already had an idea but just wanted to confirm it so I got closer and closer hoping he would stay put and hoping my 55-300mm telephoto zoom lens could possibly pick up at least some shape or feature of this bird to identify it at the distance I was from him . All though it is farther then I would of liked it to be and higher up , I took a chance any ways .
We have a lot of these pray birds here but they aren't seen much as they stay deep in the forests , even I have mistaken them for hawks now and then but as I have learnt that with the Falcon it’s head is smaller as is the body then a hawks and the beak is stubby with a hook at the end of the top of it , I was able to get a closer look at the photo in Lightroom so that was cool lol ! Papa and I went out for supper at a nice little restaurant in the small town of Port Burwell off the north shores of lake Erie only a six minuet drive from us called The Lighthouse , to have a lovely English style fish and chips YUMMY ! It was raining so I didn't get any photos of the place I will next time . Any who I am off now as I have cups of tea to make watch my Coronation Street we fans call it Corrie St and relax for the rest of the evening with the windows open listening to the rain and feeling the fresh cool breezes blowing in . It is a nice change from sweltering humidity .
Until next time .
