I haven't been seeing as many deer around here, lately. (Still see some, but not like this.)

How close did you get to that chipmunk? It's as if it were a pet!

The lovely bugs are lovely, as usual.

Protip: The cattails are edible.

Thanks, laura and B^4.

It's a very young chipmunk...usually they run away when I open the basement sliding door. This one stuck around as I stuck my camera hand out the door...it was only a couple feet away.

Hey, why don't you and yours come to Georgia and get some photos of the hawks I see every day on the same wires.

Watching, waiting.

I can't get a decent photo of them as I drive by.

I used to go to Jekyll Island, Ga. for our family vacations (in August, heh!), Lisa. Did you ever go there?

"They're orbs," Collins says solemnly. "I'm not sure what the scientific term is, but it's paranormal energy. See this one? Now this one is at Goliad, where, after the Alamo, 400 guys were executed. You've got to be careful. You can talk yourself into this stuff. See how many there are here? I get chills just talking about it. All of those orbs! They're all over the place! If you believe this, then you have to rethink everything you've been taught. That's what freaks me out."

Whoa!

YOU TAKE THAT BACK!!!!!

Pinko is going to have words for you.

well, he's wealthy, and he didn't have to destroy other people's lives to get there...

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Phil Collins is powerful enough to destroy Genesis, and Peter Gabriel COMBINED with Steve Hackett couldn't do that.

You are very talented when it comes to nature shots. Wish I could do as well.

Lovely captures.
