Ah love,so fickle,so fleeting.

 

From the moment this squirrel found the birdseed, you could tell it was LOVE. You can even see the squirrel kissing the bird feeder, such a romantic.

Being in love and winning over the one you love isn’t always possible. This squirrel tried and tried to get some acknowledgement from the birdseed but it wouldn’t even throw it a crumb.

Eventually, things deteriorated as these things do. The love the squirrel had for the seed diminished through frustration and all that was left was some half-hearted screaming.

Add them to your list.

Doves…not always the first bird to come to mind when naming gorgeous birds. They  are, however, exquisite. Yes, they waddle, but when they fly they are the epitome of streamlined aircraft. Just look at the beauty of the wings, so many colors, highlights and shadows.

The male dove is also a romantic,a poet, irresistible as far as the ladies are concerned.

I adore you wm

If only they didn’t monopolize the bird feeder.

 

 

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE…

“Mom! Mom! Can I hug you? I want to hug you!”

Today I  met the babies that mama raccoon has been hiding. They came out from under the deck, one at a time and this was the first one to arrive.

 

"I love you SOOOO much Mom!"
“I love you SOOOO much Mom!”

 

Look at that little tongue…she probably spends a lot of time keeping the little one clean..you know how kids are.
