Well our snow is all gone now and the temperatures seem to be getting a little better each day. I probably won't have any landscape photos for a while. As attractive as I think that MUD is, I'll probably hold off a bit until some green shows itself. So I'll get straight to the wildlife!
For my birds today I have this sweet little Chickadee...
This is my first ever photograph of a White Breasted Nuthatch!! They are wicked fast, sort of rare and do not like humans at all, so I am pretty happy to get this this shot!
A sweet little Blue Jay enjoying the morning sun...
I'm so excited the ice on the lake is all melted away! I really missed the ducks, geese and seagulls this winter and I can't wait for lots of babies to start coming out of the reeds!!
I thought I would introduce you to a few newcomers at the Balcony Buffet! For those of you who follow me on social media, you probably know these faces, but they are worth seeing again!
First up is MARCIA. I believe you saw the back of her head in my squirrel fur macro shot a while back. She is a darling and has been through a lot with a missing tail, a limp and a wobbly walk. But she is happy and seems healthy, so rock on MARCIA!!
This is RUSTY, a very rare Red Squirrel who visits me out the side window. He is a hard dude to capture with the camera because he never stops running. This was a rare moment when he paused to let a stiff wind pass by, before he got up and zipped away again!
This is PEPE LEPEW. He is a very unique guy as you can see. He has a white nose, white ears and paws, and a white stripe on his tail. He's cautious and shy but so adorable! Just this week, he suffered head wounds from a cat attack, so everyone please send him wishes for a full recovery.
Last but not least, my macro. Some spring water droplets on a pine branch.
That's it for today. Thank you for stopping in and for all the amazing comments. If you have any questions or interesting tidbits about today's wildlife, please let me know.
