Let’s do sunsets.

I’m really, really, really out of sync being temporarily displaced from my window into the woods. They’re making progress, it will get built, siding goes on next week…but still much to do. So…I thought I’d look at sunsets…you can look too if you want to.

Florida Squirrels

I spent almost three weeks in Florida recently and obviously, I spent part of that time hoping to run into a squirrel. I decided to take a drive/walk one afternoon to see if the eagles had returned to their previous nest and just as I entered the nature area, I spotted a squirrel!

I went into full squirrel spotter stealth mode…slowly, slowly I approached the unsuspecting squirrel by way of the boardwalk…I crouched down to make myself appear smaller….I was almost on the ground by the time I was close enough for a decent shot.

Reaching my most advantageous location, I settled in and got comfortable. I was surprised to realize that all of my caution may have been for naught. Herds of bicyclists pedaled happily past, except for those who would stop to try to pick me up off the ground.Reassuring them that I didn’t need water, a granola bar, a bandaid or the name of a good psychiatrist took up a fair amount of time but the squirrel hadn’t budged an inch when I was finally able to put my camera back up to my eye.

Imagine my surprise when a SECOND squirrel made an appearance! Firing away with my camera I soon had enough images to last a lifetime. Bidding the squirrels a fond farewell, I made my way back to my car, brushed the leaves and sand off of myself and sped off into the four o’clock sun.

Leave It To The Sky.

After a day of extremely strong winds and torrential rainfall, the sky had apparently run out of anger.

Having had it’s tantrum, the sky went all sweet and tried to make up for it’s bad temper by puffing up the remaining clouds with gorgeous color.

The sky is very clever, I immediately forgave it and told it how much I adored it.

And what did my wondering eyes see? Certainly not Santa Claus.

A young bobcat, perhaps only twenty ? Thirty?,feet from our door. It played with a flying grasshopper for a moment and then jumped into some bushes at the base of a palm tree.
