A Second Look--August 17, 2011

This week during a Second Look, I focused on the animals around us. It was a challenge to capture what I saw because I have a simple point and shoot digital camera with only a 4X zoom. Not the best thing for taking pictures of creatures that scattered every time I got within shooting range. Several pictures were actually taken out our kitchen window.  Anyway, here are a few things I saw this week around the yard.

This one of neighbor's cattle resting by our back fence.

We call this Tree of Heaven tree our woodpecker tree. Most years, woodpeckers "peck" out a nest here because the wood is very soft.

Adult male purple finch

Annie watching a black snake that is crawling in the basement window well.

Cardinal at the bird feeder.
Something had a nice snack from this goose egg.

What used to be our favorite maple tree until a sapsucker spent several years damaging it. It probably should be taken down sometime soon.
Bumble bee on blanket flower

Doe and fawn. There is another pair just behind them.

  1. Ha! You got me. I'm a ginger junkie. I just can't get enough of the stuff. :-)

    You've got some incredible things around your house (ie - multiple doe and fawn sets) and some kinda scary things (ie - snakes in your window well - shudder).


What do you think?
