The Shadows Know

Carmi's newest Thematic Photographic is Shadows. Here is my shadow in Lake Siri.


And here's the creek that drains from Lake Siri:

Eastern Chipmunk, Tamias striatus:


Other birdness: Downy Woodpecker

Thunder, your shadow is getting soaking wet. You get your shadow out of the water right now, young man, and it better not drip on the carpet when you get home...

The chipmunk attempt at stuffing hazelnuts in its mouth has got to the interesting stage.
I don't know, Mikey, young folks these days don't know to look after a shadow.

What a handsome shadow! I've always wanted a big strong good-looking shadow to call my own...

Chipmunk = delightful.

Love the tree shot!

Who is the long-legged giant among the trees? But the chipmunk steals the show.

I'm with Bob... you loom like a colossus!

Love that chipmunk! Is there a western chipmunk??? Years ago, on my one and only visit to the US I was delighted to see chipmunks.

And that woodpecker is great. How big is it? Looks about the size of a Tit(mouse) to me, but as I've never seen one I wouldn't know!

You've done some great shadow!.

Thank you, Gilly!

There is a western chipmunk.

Downy woodpeckers are just a little bigger than the titmice, on average.

My first unfinished novel was called "Penumbra" (the blurry grey area between light and darkness).

I'm trying to figure out which is the western portion of the eastern chipmunk...

We mock what we don't understand, OBS.

Mr. Nonny has quite the impressive collection of comments on his own blog post.

When my junior year journalism class made magazines, we named one of ours, "Penumbra." We were pretentious.

Wow! Thank you! I continually wanted to write on my blog something like that.
