Lots of time for birds.

I’ve had time to enjoy the birds now that I have a window into the woods again, I’ve also not been out and about doing much of anything. Here’s some advice.

Take your Vit. C, rest, eat well, go to bed early, avoid human contact of any sort. I would advise that you stay away from your pets too, even fish. I came down with laryngitis and haven’t had a voice for nine days. I know how I picked up my germs and I have my husband locked in a closet right now. With the holidays coming, everyone should be in anti-virus mode, make sure you have plenty of closets to lock family members in if they begin to sniffle.

Back to the birds. They seem to be in fine shape. Flitting back and forth in front of my window, fighting over the peanuts I put out for them…not one of them appears to have a cold. The point of all this rambling around is that you’re going to see a lot of bird images on here for a while. I know, why couldn’t I have just said that in the first place?

It feels like a butterfly day.

WM Yellow and PurpleLooking through my images I found this butterfly from last summer.

I can’t wait to get back home and start putting my little garden back together. Of course I can’t plant anything much until next spring, but I can wait. I’ll have the birds all winter and that will be heaven.

I know I’m impressed.

I went out to have a fun few hours of photographing birds at the rookery, but this caught my eye…A man with a flannel shirt tied around his waist. Seriously though, LOOK at that! What must that weigh? The camera alone is a heavy one, but add in the weight of all the other equipment involved…this boy has MUSCLES!

Just look at his watch, which is not petite in any way, compared to the camera…Holy smoke!

Less than a week ago, I had around twenty injections in my back, this included numbing injections, and electrodes to burn eight nerve endings. I might be able to hold the strap of his camera.
